Vanderbilt’s ACT PoE Ultra controllers support all power requirements

Product Profile

The PoE Ultra hardware in Vanderbilt’s ACT 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.

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.

The new PoE Ultra feature, alongside the ACT access control software’s existing integration with Vanderbilt’s award-winning SPC intrusion system, a rules mapping engine, and a smartphone app, simply adds to this concept.

Vanderbilt’s core aim has always been to put customers first. We believe PoE Ultra controller has a firm grip on this mantra, as it plays to pain points of both system users and installers. As we continue to develop and evolve new generations of security products, our focus will remain on striving to be a partner that is flexible to customer requirements and adaptable to meet the ever-changing needs of the market.

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. Because integrators assemble and provide the “solution” – often using products from multiple manufacturers – they are most familiar with the total system and can troubleshoot any problems. However, manufacturers may be better equipped to deal with specific problems after a sale and also to provide a variety of resources to end-users. It’s a delic...
