Vanderbilt, a global provider of state-of-the-art security systems, announced the release of a new range of SPC Wireless devices. The range of devices include detectors, panic buttons, fobs, and a transceiver. The devices are discreet and tasteful in design with sleek and modern lines to complement the interior styles of many environments, such as retail stores and apartment buildings.

At Vanderbilt, we are pleased to announce the expansion of the SPC intrusion detection family with the release of these wireless devices. This range of products was designed in response to growing consumer IoT trends, and as a result, present a great revenue opportunity for installers in boosting their SPC portfolio offering,” states Ross Wilks, Head of Marketing Communications for Vanderbilt.

Vanderbilt’s SPC wireless devices are easy for installers to mount, pair, and configure, and they can cover over 500 metres in open space"

Cost-effective alternative

Wireless technology is coming of age, and the new Vanderbilt devices boast two-way wireless technology that delivers ease of installation without compromising on the security of a wired system.

Vanderbilt’s SPC wireless devices are easy for installers to mount, pair, and configure, and they can cover over 500 metres in open space. This is a more cost-effective alternative than having to wire an entire building with cable. The 500-metre range cuts down on install time meaning an entire building can be fitted in just a couple of hours, offering a means of reducing costs for the installer,” explains Ronan Naughton, Product Manager at Vanderbilt.

A vital feature of the release is that the devices use Energizer lithium batteries, resulting in an extended battery life of five years or more. This longevity can free up installers’ time for more urgent tasks, as they won’t have to go to site as often to keep changing out batteries. “Battery life is a key component of the SPC Wireless devices. An automatic power saving mode supports them, and in fact, the SPC Wireless smoke detector comes with a battery life of over ten years," states Naughton.

Settings for SPC Wireless are all configurable over the air, again reducing the need for time-consuming site visits

More profits from more jobs

Further delivering on the aim of aiding installers, settings for SPC Wireless are all configurable over the air, again reducing the need for time-consuming site visits.

Installs for Vanderbilt's SPC Wireless devices were designed to be hassle-free. In contrast, a wired solution can take, at a minimum, a day’s work fitting cable. By reducing time on site, Vanderbilt’s SPC Wireless can enable installers to get more work done elsewhere, essentially meaning more profits from more jobs,” concludes Naughton.

This release marks the first phase of wireless development for the award-winning SPC system. In subsequent releases due later this year, Vanderbilt will also present repeaters, bells, sirens, PIR cameras, and keypads for their wireless range to the market.
