Deeply Discounted Access Control (Vanderbilt)

By Brian Rhodes, Published Sep 22, 2014, 12:00am EDT (Info+)

Lower cost cameras are increasingly the norm, but access control systems have not seen as much price drop.

Now, a new line aims to deliver deep discounts off traditional access control pricing.

Two years ago, IR sold off BrightBlue. Now, the company behind it is introducing a new line, Lite Blue.

In this note, we examine Vanderbilt Industries Lite Blue platform [link no longer available], its features, limitations and pricing, comparing it to Interlogix and Honeywell offerings.
