Remote monitoring with Vanderbilt’s Software-as-a-Service solutions

Modern technology has resulted in a society that is always connected. For the security industry, this means it is now possible to remotely monitor many locations from hundreds of miles away. This is an area where Vanderbilt solutions carry depth.

A browser and an internet connection are all that's required to access Vanderbilt’s flagship cloud products, ACT365 and SPC Connect. ACT365 is a Software-as-a-Solution access control and video management solution. SPC Connect is a hosted Software-as-a-Solution solution for installers to monitor, manage, and maintain SPC panels remotely from any location.

Remote monitoring is a backbone feature of these solutions. This ability allows for the elimination of once laborious tasks that are now capable of instant execution through the quick click of a button on mobile or desktop devices.

For example, Travix, an online travel company, that use ACT365 at their London offices wanted remote connectivity with their site through smart devices. ACT365 is delivering this by giving users control of access points via any major web browser or ACT365’s app. When not at the premises, Travix managers also have visibility of access requests to their external doors and diagnostics for door status throughout their offices.

Meanwhile, the SPC Connect app provides the ability for a caretaker that oversees maintenance for multiple buildings to manage alarms remotely. If an alarm is triggered at one of these sites while the caretaker is working at a different location, and getting to the incident is logistically difficult, they simply take out their smartphone, access the SPC Connect app, view the event, and investigate further.

Essentially what remote monitoring boils down to is providing ease of use and convenience. Remote monitoring through cloud solutions saves time and money and brings peace of mind.
