ACTpro 1500 by Vanderbilt

Product Profile

Vanderbilt’s ACTpro 1500 PoE Ultra controllers were launched in March 2019.

What is it?

The ACTpro 1500 is a single door IP Controller and includes a dual-port Ethernet switch. The controller supports 60,000 users and includes a rich set of advanced features, including voltage monitoring and break glass monitoring. These controllers are ideal for a single door system or systems that need to grow up to 4,000 doors.

How does it work?

The PoE Ultra hardware in the controllers ensures support for all power requirements. This includes local door accessories and components such as card readers, door locks and request to exit buttons. PoE Ultra ensures that all of this is accomplished without the need for additional Power Supply Units (PSUs). Essentially, this saves the system user time and money. Moreover, as this is all powered over the Ethernet, it translates to less cabling and more convenience for installers too.

Why does it matter?

This is an important feature for installers because when a system is fast to install and more straightforward to set-up and quote, it removes the complexity from access control and allows installers to get more done, more efficiently, and in less time. This ultimately benefits their business and their bottom line.

What is the role of manufacturers in providing after sales support?

Traditionally, dealer-installers and/or integrators provide the front line of support to end user customers after a sale.
