Vanderbilt, a provider of state-of-the-art security systems, has announced the release of a Milestone plugin for SPC intrusion system.

Cloud-enhanced intrusion detection

SPC protects businesses, properties, and assets for users who want an intrusion detection system that offers versatile operation and comprehensive alarm management functionality. Using cloud services, end-user apps, and a dedicated software suite, SPC is at the forefront of modern intrusion detection. The SPC Milestone plugin allows users to trigger off events and control SPC systems from within the Milestone system. When installed, the plugin allows for a 30-day trial for up to two panels and will allow the display of areas, zones, doors and outputs from the Milestone Map interface.

FlexC-enabled security communication

The plugin uses FlexC to communicate with the panel, and when a license is purchased from Vanderbilt, it will support up to 20 SPC systems. The license also provides customers with one year support and availability to updates. The plugin is compatible with SPC 3.6.6, 3.7.1, and 3.8. The plugin is aimed at improving the customer experience by providing a bi-directional communication strategy with the enhancement of a powerful surveillance solution. In line with the mantra of customer first, the SPC Milestone plugin features options such as filters for event transmissions, remote interaction based on customizable command profile, while ATS/ATP logs offer transparent transmission.

Security alarm management

The instant and remote access to any potential alarm helps save a huge amount of time for those involved in maintaining the system. For example, through the plugin, when an alarm is generated, the icon on your monitoring screen will go red, cameras can be triggered, and the Milestone client can display the relevant information. By right-clicking the icon, you can check the status of the alarm and a further right-click action will restore the alarm and switch the icon back to green. The deep integration means that when the system is configured the information is automatically imported into Milestone where names of areas, zones and doors appear allowing for a smooth configuration experience.

At Vanderbilt, we are proud to be a platform that supports an integrated environment and we aim to deliver a solution that will provide Milestone and Vanderbilt’s mutual customers with the tools they need to deliver the best solutions for their customers,” says John O’Donnell, Product Manager at Vanderbilt Industries.
