SPC Connect latest feature developments demonstrate Vanderbilt’s agility

Vanderbilt, a global leader providing state-of-the-art security systems, announced today the release of SPC Connect 2.4 to its SPC product portfolio. SPC Connect is a hosted cloud-based solution designed specifically for installers to monitor, manage, and maintain SPC panels remotely from any location.

The release indicates a significant development pace by the company as it comes just four months after the last feature set of SPC Connect updates in April 2017. The latest features include push notifications, local user management, and alarm verification.

“SPC Connect is designed to enhance the installer’s ability to configure their systems remotely and, with user management enhancements, SPC Connect speeds up the process of adding and configuring users. It means that the system administrator can now quickly configure users to have access to their SPC system, while simultaneously saving them time and money,” explains John O’Donnell, Product Manager at Vanderbilt.

The new push notifications for IOS devices ensure SPC Connect users are informed of new information related to their SPC system, even when the app is closed. The system also includes new local user management features, facilitating the ability to add new accounts through the server, import lists of multiple users, and automatically register multiple accounts at any given time, simplifying the user experience.

“SPC is one of the best intrusion detection solutions on the market for system user requirements. The speed and delivery of these latest features to market are proof of our commitment to providing customers with a stable and established security system that offers whole market scalability and future-proof guarantee,” concludes O’Donnell.
