How to do things remotely with cloud-based solutions

By definition, remote management is managing a computer or a network from a remote location. Thanks to cloud technology, it has resulted in a society that is always connected.

Ultimately the emergence of the internet and the cloud has completely changed how people protect their property. It is common for many premises to manage and monitor from hundreds of miles away.

At Vanderbilt, ACT365 and SPC Connect are the flagship solutions of the company’s remote monitoring portfolio.

For instance, it can be essential to manage access in a building with various users, including employees, guests, cleaners, and more. With ACT365, you can have complete control of all features from a desktop, tablet, or smartphone to monitor events, remotely unlock doors, and even disable users.

Remote access can be granted via two easy-to-use and efficient means - QR codes or PIN codes.

Visitors to your property can be sent a QR code to their smartphone, giving them access during a set period. This convenience allows you to create instant access to premises using ACT365 from anywhere in the world. The recipient can then present the QR code to a QR reader during the validity granted access. Similarly, you administer PIN codes to visitors of your property and decide who has access to which doors and when.
