Vanderbilt’s ACT Enterprise is Winner at Benchmark Innovation Awards 2019

The benefits of Vanderbilt’s ACT Enterprise include a smartphone app, a rules mapping engine, PoE controllers, integration with third-party products such as Assa Abloy Aperio range, integration with Vanderbilt’s award-winning SPC intrusion system, and OSDP reader encryption.

Benchmark believe that the future of the electronic security sector lies in the creation of innovative and smart solutions. The Benchmark Innovation Awards recognize that it is vital that manufacturers deliver innovation that both enhances the technological capabilities of their products, and allow those developments to be implemented realistically. Thus, the Awards seek to reward such solutions.

ACT Enterprise: Rules Mapping Engine Demo

Andrew Fulton, Strategic Business Development Director at Vanderbilt Industries, demonstrated at IFSEC London how this feature is an easy point-and-click way to enable advanced configurations of triggers based on selected action events such as:

  • System inputs or outputs and events
  • Card swipe outcomes across the access control system
  • As well as other elements of an integrated system such as intrusion system events



VOTE! Two Vanderbilt Products Nominated for PSI Premier Awards

Vanderbilt has been shortlisted twice for this year’s PSI Premier Awards. The UK publication has nominated the company for our SPC intrusion detection system and our ACT Enterprise access control software.

SPC has been nominated in the Intruder Product of the Year award, while ACT Enterprise represents our interests in the Access Control Product of the Year category.

The products were nominated over the last two months as PSI magazine asked their readers what technologies they have installed or read about in the last year that has given them the best results. Features, benefits, ease of installation, and best service were all factors that had to be taken into consideration, so these nominations are a huge testament to SPC’s and ACT Enterprise’s capabilities.

Akuvox IP Door Entry Phones added to Vanderbilt Portfolio

Akuvox is the leading IP Door Entry Phone (DEP) solution within the Vanderbilt portfolio tailored to support both standalone and Vanderbilt’s access control system support scenarios.

The Akuvox portfolio has a range of solutions to cover needs for single occupancy buildings, or multi-tenant office and residential buildings. With cloud and mobile apps, Akuvox offers a cloud intercom system that allows for smartphone video calling and unlocking, the issuing of temporary keys via QR Code (R29 Only), and a centralized remote property maintenance system.

By being able to easily monitor door and gate entrances, Akuvox increases security on residential and commercial premises. Cloud and mobile apps also add to the product’s ease of use and convenience, while overall the solution setup can free up the productivity of personal by no longer needing them to be stationed at entrances. More importantly, you can speed up your response time to visitors and deliveries that require access.
