Vanderbilt Delivers Freedom of Choice Through Open-platform Design and Technology Partnerships

Parsippany, N.J., January 17, 2017 – Vanderbilt, a global leader providing state-of-the-art security systems, continues to demonstrate its commitment to delivering open systems solutions through its compliance with open standards and close collaboration with aligned technology providers. In its effort to further extend system flexibility and customer options, the company recently completed its integration with Mercury Security and is now an Authentic Mercury partner.

The integration ensures Vanderbilt devices support Mercury Security’s hardware controllers and peripheral panels, enabling end users to build best-in-class security solutions, maximize existing investments, reduce costs and extend product lifecycle. For Vanderbilt’s systems integrator partners, an open-architecture approach supports the long-term success of technology deployments, providing freedom to choose solutions that work best for a specific deployment, an end user’s needs and crucial infrastructure requirements.

As an Authentic Mercury partner, Vanderbilt will provide customers with a streamlined path to move beyond proprietary hardware to more feature-rich access control solutions. Through its close technology partnerships and support of open standards efforts such as those promoted by ONVIF, Vanderbilt affords the interconnection of its solutions and devices with other IP-enabled systems to aggregate security data. This approach allows users to improve security staff productivity, increase situational awareness and gather more security and business intelligence.

“Open solutions enable greater choice in technologies for end users, streamlines installation and maximizes product integration,” said Matt Barnette, President, Mercury Security. “Vanderbilt’s support of Mercury solutions allows more flexibility for today’s modern security leaders and systems integrators, and supports the future of the industry.”

“There is increasing demand for open and interoperable access control solutions and Vanderbilt is expanding its capabilities with solutions that are open and scalable to allow users the freedom to use existing investments and third-party devices as part of a best-in-class security solution,” said Mitchell Kane, President, Vanderbilt. “Open systems benefit the entire security marketplace and Vanderbilt is dedicated to promoting open solutions that allow stakeholders to expand systems as security needs evolve over time. Our partnership with Mercury is a significant step forward in meeting this goal.”
