Vanderbilt is pleased to announce a new partnership with Dutch-based company, Logitime International. Logitime provides a complete and integrated solution for access control, time and attendance, and shop floor data collection. The Vanderbilt partnership centers around the integration of Vanderbilt’s VR40 OSDP Readers with Logitime’s Time and Attendance (T&A), Access Control, and Shop Floor Data Collection software solution. Logitime’s T&A software Logitime solutions' primary function is to deliver a fully customisable and interactive access control product to their customers. As such, Vanderbilt’s VR40 Readers, which are supported by OSDP, fit perfectly into this customer-first model. Using Logitime as a solution, the company in question was able to customise their access control Logitime’s T&A software is designed to be a fully integrated program. This enables Logitime to provide a tailored solution for each unique customer. An applied example of this is how Logitime’s software solved a business’ office car park problems. The car park was located near a commercial shopping center. Often employees would use the car park on their time off to go shopping. This led to employees who were scheduled to work, not being able to find parking due to the limited places available in the parking lot. Vanderbilt’s VR40 Readers Using Logitime as a solution, the company in question was able to customise their access control. Access to the parking lot was granted using the T&A work schedules instead of fixed access profiles. An incidental change of shift, an irregular shift pattern, or planned absences like holidays had a direct effect on the access control rights. Vanderbilt’s VR40 Readers fit into this mix by complementing Logitime’s goal of being interactive and customisable. This is because the VR40 Readers come with a display screen that allows Logitime to integrate and customise the messaging being displayed to their intended audiences on a customer-by-customer basis. Suitable for highly technological environments Speaking on the integration, Alexandre Prinsen, Senior Consultant at Logitime, explains: “At Logitime, our interactive technology is a crucial component for us. Therefore, being able to work with Vanderbilt’s VR40 OSDP Readers and customise our messaging in their display screens is, of course, an excellent match for us. Using the VR40 Readers, Logitime’s software can deny access to un-credentialed users “With our software solutions, we’re always thinking about solutions, and we want to be focused on being a customer-first company. You can calculate anything in our software and the VR40 Readers are a great gateway to communicate these customizable messages to the end user within one-tenth of a second. “The Vanderbilt VR Readers are very suitable for highly technological environments that need or want the feedback within their access control systems. We can even use them as T&A readers,” Prinsen concludes. High-risk security zone For example, take a high-risk security zone. If using the VR40 Readers, Logitime’s software can deny access to un-credentialed users and explain to them the reason why through the VR40 display screen with messages such as, “High-security zone – safety training needs renewal,” or “Credential needs to be validated - not allowed into high-risk area.” This is just one example of the endless applications possible. Multiple access control functionalities require interactive feedback such as: “Maximum pin code attempts,” “Anti-pass back,” “Security guards random search required,” “Maximum amount of people allowed in the area,” “Remote access granted,” etc.VR40 readers have three indicator LEDs and a multi-tone buzzer for audio verification" OLED display to simplify installation Commenting on the partnership from Vanderbilt was Nick Pegtol, Country Manager for Benelux at the company. “As well as being attractive and robust, Vanderbilt's VR40 OSDP Readers introduce dynamic features and an OLED display to simplify installation and in-service functionality. “Our VR40 readers have three indicator LEDs and a multi-tone buzzer for audio verification. A multi-colour light frame enforces access status information. This can be configured to follow the indicator LEDs or any number of different options. Display brilliance is set automatically by an inbuilt light sensor. “Aesthetics aside, one of the key features of our VR40 Readers is the inclusion of the highly secure OSDP (Open Supervised Device Protocol) to help combat people hacking communications. OSDP ensures that sniffing devices cannot be installed behind the reader or along the communications path, which we also believe strongly aligns with Logitime’s goal of producing customer-orientated solutions,” Pegtol summarises.
Vanderbilt, the global provider of state-of-the-art security systems, has announced that the award-winning SPC system has been accredited to the NF A2P Cyber-RTC cybersecurity standard from the CNPP. The SPC intrusion system was tested by CNPP to ensure that it meets the latest needs for cybersecurity. This is part of Vanderbilt’s continuous endeavour and commitment to work with approval bodies to ensure both the best-in-class security and the confidence that your security system is secure. Security for remote monitoring transmissions Using the FlexC protocol to communicate with AES256-CBC encryption, the communications between SPC and other system are secure and protected"By certifying our SPC intrusion ranges on the latest CNPP NFA2P at Cyber Type 2 and 3 repositories, Vanderbilt provides all its customers with high-level security for all remote monitoring transmissions, as well as for cloud applications such as our service SPC Connect to combine user-friendliness, availability, and security,” says Hervé Houy, Vanderbilt Country Manager for France. SPC, an IP-ready intrusion alarm system, has been designed with communications and security at its core. Using the FlexC protocol to communicate with AES256-CBC encryption, the communications between SPC and other system are secure and protected. This communication also allows for flexibility using the SPC user models. Secured data and communications The rights and permissions of users protect the user and the system from malicious attacks. Customers can use the system with confidence whether they are on-site or using the SPC Connect to enable cloud services. Their data is secure, and communications are protected. Vanderbilt has been working with CNPP for many years to ensure the quality of intrusion products for the French market Vanderbilt has been working with CNPP for many years to ensure the quality of intrusion products for the French market. This innovative step by the approval body to have a defined standard for cyber is a clear indication of the path of security systems. As the cloud becomes an element of security, we move forward with confidence in working with partners like CNPP and ANSSI. "The market is flushed with cybersecurity standards, but the NF cybersecurity standard from CNPP is the first specifically developed for intrusion alarm systems. It is a great way to benchmark and improve our SPC intrusion systems,” concludes Nick Pegtol, Vanderbilt’s Country Manager for Benelux, Greece and Cyprus.
Vanderbilt, a global provider of state-of-the-art security systems, announced further integration capabilities within their SPC intrusion system. Vanderbilt’s SPC now integrates with Dutch company Triplence Technologies’ Aperium box. This has been established through Vanderbilt’s bespoke communications protocol, FlexC. 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. FlexC is a multipath, multi-redundant, highly encrypted communications protocol that allows secure monitoring and control of IP communication paths. The Aperium box can use the IP camera Video Content Analytics (VCA) events as an alarm triggers Central Monitoring Station Triplence Technologies’ Aperium box provides a secure network between a customer’s IP devices and a Central Monitoring Station (CMS). The Achilles’ heel of many IP video systems is that they are great for internal use, but can provide a security risk when opened to the internet. The Aperium box sits in between the IP devices and an authorised receiving end and offers fast, low-bandwidth snapshot images, and high-resolution video streams when necessary for an extensive range of IP cameras. The Aperium box can also use the IP camera Video Content Analytics (VCA) events as an alarm triggers. When integrated with Vanderbilt’s SPC intrusion panel, it allows for combining intrusion alarm events with VCA verification and combining non-alarm events like Access Denied, Door Forced, and System Armed/Disarmed. Along with a series of snapshot images, this makes the job of the CMS operator more comfortable and increases the standard of security for end-users. Another positive benefit from this integration is that through the Aperium box, SPC can now be combined with a more significant number of IP cameras of various brands, as well as other major brands of network video recorders. The video content analysis tools found in today’s modern IP cameras can now be an integral part of a secure intrusion alarm system Secure intrusion alarm system “Triplence developed a solution that benefits all parties in our industry: the CMS, the installer, and the end user, by providing a unique combination of Vanderbilt’s SPC intrusion alarm system and a comprehensive range of third-party IP camera solutions. The video content analysis tools found in today’s modern IP cameras can now be an integral part of a secure intrusion alarm system. This is something that has been talked about for years but not seen so far,” states Nick Pegtol, Benelux Sales Manager at Vanderbilt. “Both Vanderbilt and Triplence value state-of-the-art IP architecture and end-to-end encryption. Having smart video analytics (VCA) as an elemental part of their security solution, together we created an unparalled interconnection to the security industry” concludes Angelo Peeters, Commercial Director at Triplence Technologies.
