MAGIC dual motion detectors from Vanderbilt awarded prestigious NF, INCERT, IMQ and VdS approvals

Vanderbilt has announced that its range of MAGIC dual motion detectors has been awarded four prestigious European approvals. The popular range has gained approval in line with the latest editions of the relevant French NF standards as well as the TO-14 (INCERT) standards that are applicable in Belgium and the Netherlands, the Italian IMQ and the German VdS accreditation.

Considered one of the most important approvals in France, the NF standard confirms that products are suitable for use in applications where compliance is required by the end users of security systems and by their insurers.

Similarly, INCERT is recognised all over Belgium and the Netherlands where the markets demand high end products and systems.

IMQ is Italy’s most important certification body and a European leader in conformity assessments and laboratory testing for a diverse range of industries.

In addition, the MAGIC E-Bus device has also been approved in line with the EN50131 European Standards and also received German VdS approval.

These approvals come just 12 months after the MAGIC PDM-IXx12/T and PDM-IXx18/T dual motion detectors were launched in order to offer reliable detection of intruders and high false alarm immunity.

Their performance is based on an improved version of Vanderbilt’s Matchtec algorithm which combines passive infrared (PIR) and microwave (MW) channels to make “incredibly accurate” decisions on motion within a detection zone. The detectors perform well even under harsh conditions, such as in rooms with rapid and extreme temperature fluctuations that can create false alarms.

Within their future proof design, the intelligent processing routines used in the MAGIC dual motion detectors are said to provide “unrivalled” reliability. This is because the Matchtec algorithm analyses the relative strength of the PIR and MW signals received from a moving object to make sound decisions.

It’s possible to use multiple detectors in close proximity to each other since the algorithm reduces interference between the MW modules. As a result, they also comply with the new and significantly more demanding CE Regulations that came into force last year.

“The response to the MAGIC PDM-IXx12/T and PDM-IXx18/T dual motion detectors since they were launched last year has been phenomenal,” commented Alistair Enser, global sales director at Vanderbilt. “We’re delighted that they have now been awarded NF, INCERT, IMQ and VdS approvals. This is clearly testament to the quality of the range as these designations are only presented to products that have the highest standards of design and manufacture and offer Best in Class levels of operational performance.”

Vanderbilt’s bright blue access control solution wins prestigious Benchmark Innovation Award

Security systems developer Vanderbilt is celebrating after its bright blue access control system was recognised at the Benchmark Innovation Awards 2015. The bright blue solution received this prestigious accolade for its ability to provide an innovative, flexible and highly effective solution for delivering enhanced protection, security and business benefits.

Hosted by Risk UK’s sister publication Benchmark – a leading UK monthly journal dedicated to driving technology advancements in the security sector – the Benchmark Innovation Awards 2015 were judged by the magazine’s in-house testing team alongside a number of industry experts.

Entries were assessed on their ability to solve problems faced when designing and implementing a security solution and boost operational efficiency. Due to the level of technology development across the industry, competition was fierce and only those solutions that could offer the highest levels of innovation were successful.

bright blue is a powerful, cost-effective and easy-to-use intelligent access control system which has been specifically designed for most SME applications. Perfect for a diverse range of vertical sectors, any computer running a standard Internet browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Apple Safari can be used to access, monitor and manage the system.

In use, bright blue enables the management of up to 32 doors and 5,000 card holders without the need for a significant investment in special software. The controller is built on a Linux operating system, in turn ensuring that the system is stable and secure from external threats.

With “unrivalled” levels of user-friendliness, bright blue’s intuitive software means that no special training is required and the system can be up-and-running in a matter of minutes. It’s easy to add card holders, set up new doors and even assign personnel access to different doors based on their time schedules, security levels and job requirements.

Video may also be integrated and activated at every card swipe, allowing investigations to be performed with accuracy.

The system can be accessed at any time and anywhere and standardised reports generated. Back-up functionality ensures that data losses do not occur.

In the event of an emergency, an end user can initiate a full site lockdown via a credential or external push-button. bright blue also offers advanced features such as door monitoring and anti-passback. If an event does occur, an e-mail notification can be sent to an authorised user.

bright blue is already proving to be a popular solution within Vanderbilt’s portfolio. It has also been complemented by last year’s introduction of lite blue, an entry-level, 2-8 door access control system that uses the same Internet browser-based configuration as bright blue, offering SMEsa defined access control migration path.

“We’re delighted to have received this Benchmark Innovation Award and incredibly proud that our dedication to pushing the boundaries of technology has been recognised in this way,” commented Joe Grillo, managing director of Vanderbilt. “Since acquiring Security Products from Siemens in April this year, Vanderbilt has reinforced its position as a global leader in state-of-the-art security systems. We reinvest at least 10% of our annual revenue into new R&D programmes each year in order to further our growth and provide Best in Class solutions that offer tangible benefits to our customers and end users.”
