Vanderbilt Industries

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®.

Designed in the same manner as Vanderbilt’s flagship web-based controller, utilising embedded intelligence, lite blue™ does not require special software or a dedicated PC.  Any computer running a standard web browser can be used to access, monitor and manage the system.  lite blue™ takes simplicity a major step further when it comes to cost effective, easy-to-use access control.

“Based on feedback we received from our channels, we sought to create an economical, market-entry access control solution without compromising quality, feature sets, or scalability,” said Mitchell Kane, President, Vanderbilt Industries. “With our release of lite blue™, we’re proud to have delivered on our promise to offer a quality, affordable solution that performs at the highest level.”

Key lite blue™ system features and benefits include support for up to 2-8 doors and 5000 cardholders; remote access via web-browser; single action facility lockdown via credential, external push-button or software; email event notification; and easy upgrades to a full bright blue® 32-door panel system.

Other system features of note:

  • Automatic system back-ups
  • Standardised reports
  • Door status monitoring
