Brief

Vanderbilt IP access control systems have been installed at Asda stores and distribution centers across the UK. The roll-out has already covered 500 sites all of which are networked to Asda’s corporate headquarters in Leeds.

Solutions Provided

  • Asda is benefiting from Vanderbilt’s ACTpro 4000 two-door controllers that can extend to 16 doors via ACTpro door stations. In turn, up to 250 of the controllers can be networked via a PC interface. The hardware offers low bandwidth and auto-discovery for easy installation and maintenance, alongside features such as timed anti-passback and counting areas.
  • The Asda sites are also using Vanderbilt’s software platform, ACTpro Enterprise, which distinguishes between different user types such as installer, security guard or system administrator to factor out accidental system changes.
  • For example, an Asda staff member might present their MIFARE contactless smart card to a reader. ACTpro Enterprise then grants or denies access based on the user’s privileges which can be defined by seniority, job profile, time of day, and day of the week.
