Vanderbilt Industries

Security installation specialist Vision Security Services installed Vanderbilt’s ACT365, a cloud-based access control and video management system, at Work.Life, a co-working and private offices facility in London Fields, east London.

The ACT365 solution was implemented late in the construction stage, as initially, the client had used a conventional system, before realising late-on the benefits available from cloud management. Essentially, the client needed unified management of access points and video, both locally and remotely. It was for these reasons that ACT365 was chosen for the task.

Remote monitoring capabilities

ACT365 allows the system user to activate doors and analyse their status from any major web browser or the ACT365 appImportantly, ACT365’s remote monitoring capabilities deliver a force that gives business owners far greater visibility and control of their property. For instance, at the London Fields site, ACT365 allows the system user to activate doors and analyse their status from any major web browser or the ACT365 app. This allows Work.Life to make immediate remote adjustments to a user’s details, including updating access privileges when a lapsed membership is renewed.

Crucially, ACT365 can also generate muster reports during a building evacuation, with marshals being able to see instantly from their phone or smart device if members have mustered out. Again, this function can be used remotely if required.

Controlling doors through mobile devices

Vision Security Services operates as an integrator across access control, video surveillance, intruder alarms and barrier systems across the south of England and London from a base in Sittingbourne, Kent. Commenting on the installation of ACT365, Reg Butler, Director of Vision Security Services, stated:

There are very few true cloud-based access control solutions, and the ability of Vanderbilt’s ACT365 to synchronise access control events instantly to camera footage from a single platform means no time is wasted searching through video. Vanderbilt’s ACT365 appeals to our end-users regarding functionality and price point. They also appreciate being able to view sites and even open and lock doors based on what they see on a camera feed, all from a smartphone or web browser.

Protecting people and assets during emergency

ACT365’s real-time management enables the kind of flexibility that system users need to instantly protect people and assets in the event of an emergency

Overall, ACT365’s real-time management enables the kind of flexibility that system users need to instantly protect people and assets in the event of an emergency. Essentially, ACT365’s remote monitoring feature puts business owners first by eradicating once heavy responsibilities that can now be promptly completed through the click of a button on mobile or desktop devices. This gives business owners convenience through simplicity.

As explained by Ross Wilks, Head of Marketing Communications at Vanderbilt: “ACT365 deals with convenience. It deals with things that are at the heart of customer pain points. Vanderbilt has always looked to invest in technology that will match our values of collaboration, empowerment and customer-first.

"Products like ACT365 excel with these criteria. ACT365’s distinguishing characteristics deliver information rapidly, cost-effectively, and can be upgraded with the latest features as and when they become available.

What are the benefits of selling security solutions?

Products are the building blocks of the security industry. Historically much of the industry’s sales effort has been focused on highlighting product features and functionality. At the end of the day, however, an end user is less interested in the performance of any individual system component than in the system as a whole. Lately, the industry has embraced a changing sales approach by emphasising systems rather than products. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What are the...
