Since its acquisition of Security Products from Siemens, Vanderbilt has caused a buzz in the security industry

Vanderbilt will attend Security Essen for the first time this year, and will be exhibiting the latest developments across all three of its product ranges – Access Control, Intruder Detection and Video surveillance.

Recent activity

Since its acquisition of Security Products from Siemens 15 months ago, Vanderbilt has caused quite a buzz in the security industry.  A combination of its global reach, independent structure and technical expertise is without parallel in the industry, and helps to explain its prolific growth over that time.

Indeed, the last 15 months have been a period of considerable activity for Vanderbilt. A rationalised supply chain management and logistics infrastructure has been initiated, which is already improving product availability to customers. This is being complemented with a programme of activities that will integrate Vanderbilt’s global operation across 95 countries worldwide, making over 2,000 products available to all customers on increasingly short lead times.  Vanderbilt has also made a number of key appointments to strengthen the senior management team at the company.

Aliro 2 access control

On centre stage at Security Essen Vanderbilt will feature Aliro 2 - the latest generation of Vanderbilt’s industry leading access control solution. Building on the success of its predecessor and created alongside external developers, Aliro 2 is suitable for small to medium sized commercial applications, boasting easy to use Internet based software and intuitive mobile features. Utilising the advanced Mercury firmware platform, which provides unrivalled control, monitoring and data manipulation, it supports, as standard, 64 doors and 5,000 users and, with additional software licenses the system can be increased up to 1,024 wired doors, 1,024 wireless doors and 25,000 users. Visitors will also be able to see how it works with MiFare card readers featuring an integral LED based screen that facilitates cardholder interaction by displaying messages. Integration with Aperio is one of the highlights in the new feature set of Aliro 2 but there is much more to come as this new system paves the way for Vanderbilt’s future migration strategy.

SPC intrusion panel

One of the strongest intrusion
product ranges available on the
market, SPC has obtained more
approvals than any other, both
European and further afield

Vanderbilt’s highly successful SPC intrusion panel will also be featured on the stand. One of the strongest intrusion product ranges available on the market, SPC has obtained more approvals than any other, both European and further afield.  Vanderbilt continues to develop even more attractive features for this range including its SPC Connect – which will also be demonstrated at Security Essen.  This cloud-based innovation provides customers with remote access to control panels, safe in the knowledge that the process is highly secure, thanks to the implementation of financial grade SSL security. Another exciting new aspect of SPC Connect is that installers can customise how they view data by setting up a feature which allows them to manage and control access rights to individual panels and groups of panels. 

Magic motion detector range

Also being shown, the highly successful Magic motion detector range, which offers reliable detection of intruders and high false alarm immunity. This will appear alongside the new colour range of SPC Compact Keypads – slim, elegant, feature packed user interfaces which bring the power and sophistication of the SPC system right to a user’s fingertips.

Eventys video range

New to the video portfolio is the Eventys range, a cost effective range of cameras and recorders that are aimed at the simple set up and plug and play approach.  With an intuitive interface offering outstanding functionality and flexibility, Eventys is perfect for small to medium sized installations that require up to 20 cameras.

Future expansion

Joe Grillo, CEO of Vanderbilt, commented, "It has been a tremendously exciting time for Vanderbilt and we are looking forward to sharing the results of our activities. In 2016 we will attend all the major trade shows in Europe. I want our customers to see our business as one that delivers on its commitments to be close to our market and our partners.

"Security Essen attracts many German and international visitors and therefore provides an excellent platform to further highlight our credentials as a uniquely independent organisation that is pursuing an aggressive expansion programme."
