Vanderbilt ACT Enterprise: secure access control environment

Product Profile

Vanderbilt released the latest version of ACT Enterprise on 25 September at the 2018 Security Essen event.

What is it?

ACT Enterprise is the control software suite for ACTpro hardware and streamlines the installation, management, and monitoring of the ACTpro access control system. The latest ACT Enterprise features include integration with Vanderbilt’s award-winning SPC intrusion system, a rules mapping engine, and a smartphone app.

Why does it matter?

The ACT Enterprise Apple and Android compatible apps mean real-time monitoring, user management and administration from your smartphone. You can lock and unlock doors, authorise users and check who’s in and who’s out – wherever you are. The ability to integrate with SPC further highlights the depth that the new feature set brings to the product’s strength. Now on one screen you can have high-quality graphical maps showing all access and alarm points from both systems, and you can control all devices with the click of a button.

How does it work?

One of the key new features in this ACT Enterprise release is rules mapping. The rules mapping engine offers the customer an intuitive method to create rules based on access control events and Boolean logic. It does this by permitting the creation of logical relationships between system elements through a drag-and-drop interface. For the end user, this addition ensures that system interactions can be seamlessly introduced on a system-wide basis, thereby enabling a higher level of added value to be realized, both for security and business-based functionalities. 

The ACT Enterprise rules mapping engine ensures intuitive, easy-to-use I/O management for trigger detection with compatible devices. These devices are usually attached to a door or an automated electrical that closes the circuit on the I/O unit. When this circuit is closed, an alarm is sent over the network, and ACT Enterprise captures that.
