Visual Command Center Integrates with Vanderbilt Industries Physical Access Control System

Consolidated view enables users to focus on alarms without losing sight of the bigger picture 

Lansing, MI and Parsippany, NJ, October 23, 2014—IDV Solutions, LLC and Vanderbilt Industries today announced that the companies have formed a technical partnership and completed an integration of Vanderbilt’s SMS physical access control system (PACS) with IDV Solutions’ Visual Command Center® enterprise risk visualization (ERV) platform.

Using a combination of the two technologies, security operations teams can visualize alarms for events like doors propped open, windows forced, or unauthorized entry attempts. Visual Command Center provides context for alarms, showing the building location, nearby assets, and surrounding events; such as current and forecast weather, natural disasters, terrorist threats or the release of hazardous materials.

Visual Command Center provides security operations teams with a single enterprise platform for risk awareness and response which visualizes a company’s assets—such as buildings, employee locations, corporate events and supply routes—along with events that may threaten those assets on an interactive map and timeline. When Visual Command Center detects a potential threat near an asset or employee location, it automatically alerts operators, who can use powerful visualization, filtering, and query tools to assess the threat, and then proactively mitigate risk.

Vanderbilt Industries is a global leader in creating state-of-the-art security systems. The company innovates access control technology by designing, manufacturing and distributing systems that make environments safe, secure and easy to maintain. Vanderbilt’s products range from single-user systems so simple that they can be installed in one day to highly customized applications that fit the unique requirements of leading multi-national corporations.

“Connecting Visual Command Center to a Vanderbilt Industries PACS will give users real-time alerts and the tools needed to assess threats, without having to switch between applications during an emergency,” said Ian Clemens, Chief Technical Officer and co-founder, IDV Solutions. “This provides security teams a consolidated view of everything that’s happening, supporting them as they take action to protect people and facilities.”

“With our many enterprise-level clients, integration to Visual Command Center is a critical component in managing the security ecosystem,” said Mitchell Kane, Vanderbilt President. “Partnering with IDV enables us to offer an additional level of functionality and ease of use that complex organizations seek.”
