Vanderbilt’s SPC Connect 3.0 focuses on greater visibility for security professionals

Vanderbilt, the provider of state-of-the-art security systems, has just released the latest version of SPC Connect, the remotely managed, cloud-based intrusion detection solution. This latest version, 3.0, includes an entirely reworked user interface and focuses on more intuitive user operations.

“With this release, we believe that the evolution of SPC Connect has reached a new level,” said product manager Alexander Scheffold. “One of Vanderbilt’s targets is to provide state-of-the-art intrusion systems to our customers with a wide range of advantages. In our view, SPC Connect 3.0 ticks all of these boxes.”

Through this release, collected information is now visible to the installer and enables them to have an overview of the installed SPC systems out in the field. Dashboard widgets like a geographical site map with status information from individual panels or a multi-site Status widget showing the overall status information from all connected SPC panels enhancing the usability and the decision-making workflow from installers.

A new centralised operations menu allows installers to more intuitively navigate a specific operation much quicker.

“SPC Connect 3.0 has a completely reworked user interface that allows installers to gain a faster overview of the installed SPC base,” said Ross Wilks, head of Vanderbilt’s marketing communications. “Through our research and received customer feedback, we’ve learned from our customer-base that greater visibility of their installed SPC systems is a priority for them.”

Greater visibility for end users’ installers includes an intuitive operations menu with all available operations on different levels, such as site level, multi-site level and company administrator level.

“This release was designed to be a customer-first experience,” said Scheffold. “The dashboard now contains interactive widgets that allow installers to create customised views. For example, they can quickly and clearly see the information they personally want most to execute your daily needs more efficiently.”

Scheffold summarised: “In addition, SPC Connect 3.0 comes with a new installer manual. This approach means that the existing static, manual approach will be enhanced with an embedded FAQ functionality. This will allow the installer to find an explanation for a feature, or how to perform a specific action much quicker on behalf of the end user organisation.”
