7 ACT Takeaways
1. Simple plug and play
We recognise that Access Control should not be difficult or time-consuming to install and use, and Vanderbilt has developed the ACT products around this thinking with a modular design philosophy. With its modular architecture and automatic device detection, ACT is simple to install and maintain, regardless of your access control experience.
2. Card Cloning and Hacking Prevention
The card reader is the single most vulnerable point in your entire physical office security setup. 90% of all access control cards in the industry today are easily copied and cloned on the internet. ACTpro secures your business by using the latest DESfire ™ EV1/EV2 cards and readers and Open Source Data Protection (OSDP) protocols to ensure that your cards cannot be cloned and your readers cannot be spoofed.
3. IP at the door
ACT ensures installation time is kept to a minimum, You simply use one IP address and connect the controller to the network. To offer a flexible approach you can also use an RS485 structure.
4. Intuitive usage
With simplified processes, and an intuitive “point and click” interface, both users and installers have the opportunity to utilise the benefits of ACT with minimum training or technical support. A good example of this is the rules mapping engine that enables advanced configurations of various system inputs and outputs through an intuitive, user-friendly interface.
5. Software based on trusted technology
With a proven approach, ACT utilises a single license from setup, that enables simple and efficient programming of system functions and updates.
6. ACT, making access control simple and innovative
ACT was created with an intuitive handling philosophy in mind and is a user-friendly system that has the ability to provide direct messaging on OLED displays at the door (where Vanderbilt Mifare OLED display readers are installed).
To ensure ACT is easy to quote, easy to sell and easy to install both door controllers with or without onboard PSUs are available.
ACT is fully customisable should you need it to be. If customisation is not required, door controllers are pre-configured out of the box, to ensure you have an operational system in the fastest time possible.
7. Manage on the go
Our Apple and Android compatible apps mean real-time monitoring, user management and administration from your smartphone. You can enable and disable alarms, lock and unlock doors, authorise users and check who’s in and who’s out – wherever you are. Security has never been more convenient, and you’ve never been more in control.
