Vanderbilt Industries

Vanderbilt, a global leader in providing state-of-the-art security systems, has announced a new version of its innovative Aliro Internet protocol (IP) based access control solution. Aliro Market Package 1.15 provides a range of refinements to the previous product (originally launched at the end of 2014), while introducing new features to improve functionality within small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs). This is the first rebranded access control system from Vanderbilt since its acquisition of Security Products from Siemens in June 2015 and is therefore a significant event in the company’s development.

New features

Aliro offers a transparent architecture with user-friendly software and intuitive mobile applications. With its flexible operating concept, the system can be managed from virtually any Internet connected device and joining the 11 European languages already offered, Market Package 1.15 contains 4 new languages, Russian, Polish, Czech and Greek with Aliro having the capability to assign each user their own language.

Easy to configure, the software automatically detects access control units in the system and assigns them IP network addresses. The system can manage up to 512 doors, 10,000 users and 100,000 access cards

Easy configuration

Aliro uses state-of-the-art MiFare DESfire card readers, featuring an integrated OLED display which shows messages and instructions based on user credentials & language, thus allowing direct interaction with the card holder. With a light frame control, the reader enables the use of customisable colours and sequencing for different types of events. Furthermore, they can be configured for individuals or groups, using a unique code that can allow entry into areas for specific periods of time, without the requirement for an access control card. A USB connected enrolment reader allows system administrators to register new cards through a simple plug and play device.

Emergency situation management

An exciting new element of Aliro Market Package 1.15 is its roll call feature. In the event of an emergency where a building has to be evacuated, the system can be used to provide accurate information, in the form of a muster report, about who is in the building and where they are currently located. The report produces a list of all personnel identified as being in a certain building or area, giving designated individuals a roll call that can be used to check that everyone has safely evacuated a building.

By placing card readers at all evacuation assembly points, personnel can register their presence, thereby allowing safety representatives to focus attention on those on the roll call that have not registered. The Aliro mobile app can also display who is registering at a muster point using notifications. If anti-passback is in operation and a person didn't badge out correctly, their pass will be reset once they have registered.

‘The response to Aliro has been fantastic and the additional features in Market Package 1.15 make it an even more attractive proposition for those looking for a flexible and functional IP based access control solution,’ commented Matt Haynes, Global Access Sales Specialist at Vanderbilt. ‘This latest development is part of an ongoing improvement process and which will see further enhancements announced in due course.’
