Vanderbilt Industries, a global leader in access control innovation, recently announced the introduction of lite blue™, a new 2-door web-based access control system with expansion capabilities to 8 devices. 

lite blue™ boasts the same easy-to-use software as the company’s bright blue® Intelligent Access Management System and is easily upgradeable to a full bright blue 32-door system.  The Vanderbilt lite blue™ controller includes two on-board reader interfaces, thereby allowing for easier installation and enhanced cost savings.  Built on the Authentic Mercury™ controller platform, lite blue™ supports standard Wiegand devices, Schlage AD Series electronic locks, and various card formats and technologies such as proximity, smart card, magnetic stripe and Bluetooth®.
