Vanderbilt SPC Connect mobile app for monitoring, managing and maintaining SPC Panels remotely

Product Profile

Security Products from Vanderbilt (formerly known as Siemens Security Products) has released a new and updated version of its popular SPCanywhere app, which enables users of intruder detection installations based on the versatile SPC range to monitor and control their systems. The company has also now made the app available for use on Android devices as well as on devices that run Apple’s iOS operating system.

The Android version of SPCanywhere can be found on Google Play, while the iOS version is in the Apple App Store. Both versions are free, and both are available to download immediately.

With SPCanywhere running on an Android or Apple phone or tablet, users can monitor up to four SPC installations via an attractive and intuitive graphical interface. SPCanywhere provides an overview of the system area status as well as the status of all zones and door controls.

A convenient map view mode is provided that use icons to clearly show the positions of detectors and verification cameras. By tapping on the appropriate icon, SPCanywhere users can control doors, areas and zones, and can even display realtime images from IP cameras connected to their SPC installation.

A valuable new feature that has been added to the latest iOS version of SPCanywhere and is also available in the Android version is the ability to add multiple layers to the map, making it even faster and easier to confirm the status of the installation. In addition, the iOS version has now been optimised for use on the larger screen of the iPhone 5.

A particularly valuable feature of SPCanywhere in business applications is that it allows the whole installation to be set and unset remotely. This means that, if the authorised person cannot be present in the workplace at the start of the working day, they can remotely unset the system. Similarly, at the end of the day, if they are not on the premises, they can remotely set the system.

A comprehensive log screen is also provided by SPCanywhere, which allows users to access a detailed record of all significant events relating to their installation, including not only alarm activations but also power failures and other system incidents.

SPCanywhere for Android is compatible with phones and tablets running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) or higher, while the iOS version requires iOS 5 or higher and works with iPad 2 or later, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS.
