Vanderbilt Industries

Vanderbilt, a global provider of state-of-the-art video, access control and intrusion security systems, announced it has added more functionality to its Vanderbilt Security Management System (SMS) software through a new integration with Allegion. The integration expands the reach of Vanderbilt's SMS to secondary doors through Allegion's Von Duprin Remote Undogging (RU) and Remote Monitoring (RM) options in a variety of markets, including enterprise, K-12 and university facilities.

The Allegion Von Duprin RU option provides an electronic override of mechanical dogging for emergency facility lockdown and includes sensors for monitoring. The RM option is a sensor-only configuration for exit-only or fire-rated doors that require monitoring and increased visibility. Coupled with Vanderbilt SMS, users can now remotely monitor and lock down secondary perimeter doors with the touch of a button in the event of an emergency.

Bolstering the security of secondary doors

The integration offers even more value for customers that invest in the Vanderbilt SMS system, which allows users to manage alarms, photo ID badging, visitor management

Access control is a central concern for today's enterprises as they formulate comprehensive plans for the safety of employees, visitors and assets,” said Yong Lacy, Allegion US Category Leader, Openings. “Allegion developed the Von Duprin RU and RM options to bolster the security of not only main entrances, but also secondary doors so they can be easily locked down in the event of an incident. Additionally, remote monitoring ensures a security operator's ability to address concerns as they arise.

The integration offers even more value for customers that invest in the Vanderbilt SMS system, which allows users to manage alarms, photo ID badging, visitor management, elevator control, offline and online locks, advanced reporting and lockdowns from its single-source, easy-to-use and intuitive platform.

Ensuring higher level of situational awareness

This new integration with Allegion closes the gap that many organisations have today with regard to lockdown protection, especially in the K-12 and university market, where numerous secondary doors must be accounted for,” said Eric Widlitz, Vice President, North America Sales, Vanderbilt. “Our customers require greater control and flexibility when it comes to their access control solutions and it's critical that we're able to offer the tools and support they need to ensure higher levels of situational awareness. This integration helps strengthen our mutual product offering for end users.

Vanderbilt will showcase this integration, as well as its latest product solutions, during the upcoming Global Security Exchange (GSX) show by ASIS International in Booth #2865 Sept. 24-27, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

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...
