NEW! VCredential: Vanderbilt's cloud-based credential management platform

Bluetooth Low Energy Technology

In the era of the smartphone, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is transforming the future of access control. This removes the need for a physical card or tag and replaces it with a secure Bluetooth credential that communicates with the reader to grant or deny access.

Speaking on the release of this latest addition to Vanderbilt’s vast access control portfolio, Ross Wilks, Head of Marketing Communications at the company, stated:

"Vanderbilt’s BLE readers remove the need for a physical credential and replace it with a virtual credential for smartphone devices that will provide customers with a far smoother user experience. Importantly, when it comes to putting customers at the front and center of what we do at Vanderbilt, these mobile credentials are time and cost-effective alternatives to managing physical credentials. This will allow Vanderbilt customers to save not only time, but also money too." More product reviews from our experts available here >> 

Vanderbilt’s Bluetooth readers aim to give a unique user experience with four identification modes for easy management. These are “ Shake to Go”, “Show to Go”, “Manual Button Mode”, and “Hands Free Mode”. They are also IP65 water-resistant with waterproof electronics, and easy to install and use with enrolment software in ACT Enterprise.


VCredential is a cloud-based credential management platform that offers users the ability to create and manage Bluetooth credentials independent of the access control platform. Now, through VCredential, all Vanderbilt systems, including ACTpro, OMNIS, ACT365, SPC, as well as multiple third-party partner systems, support BLE readers and accessories. Read more on how VCredential works >>
