Mobile Act ID makes it easy to issue new credentials, grant and restrict access, and manage all credentials. There are no separate subscriptions or fees with Mobile Act ID.

All of Vanderbilt's systems give you complete control over the security of your building with the recent introduction of Mobile Act ID, a cloud-based, zero-touch credential option that allows administrators to easily control access and authenticate users via the cloud. The credential seamlessly integrates with all of Vanderbilt's access control platforms. There are no extra subscriptions required or additional fees. Mobile Act ID allows users to quickly issue new credentials and to grant and restrict access to facilities.
The company's security management system integrates your facility's access control technologies with your digital video and alarm monitoring systems, allowing you to manage all of your security from a single platform. Fire and intrusion alarms (made by Vanderbilt) can also be connected to the system.
