Integration of Vanderbilt SPC Intrusion System with Home and Building Automation Systems

Reuse your investment in SPC sensors and detectors to control your lights, water valves, blinds and HVAC

As a Vanderbilt integrated partner, Lundix IT has developed a portfolio of products for integration of Vanderbilt SPC intrusion system with third-party systems and products. The integration products supports both the old EDP and the new FlexC protocol and provides open API’s as REST API, Websockets, and MQTT for easy integration of Home and Building automation systems based on KNX, Z-Wave or other protocols.

Regardless you are a professional installer or a DIY user, we have the solution for you.

Help with third-party integration of SPC FlexC

Since 2013, Lundix has been developing SPC integration products and solutions and has therefore become an expert on Vanderbilt FlexC and EDP communication. In addition to our standard products, we therefore also offer customized solutions,
To simplify integration with any third-party systems, we have developed a software module, SPC Flex Gateway, that converts the Vanderbilt FlexC protocol into a REST / Websockets API. Using our API, instead of implementing the FlexC protocol from the scratch in your system, provides a very cost-effective and easy way to achieve SPC integration with any BMS or VMS system. If you prefer to implement your own FlexC communication, we can offer support and guidance in that process.

We can also help you with integration of SPC with specific protocols, e.g. Modbus, OPC UA, EnOcean, DALI or Profibus,

The alarm dashboard and control panel shown in the video is one example of what can be achieved with our FlexC integration.

You are welcome to contact us at info@lundix.se and describe your needs and requirements. We are convinced that we can find the right solution for you.

SPC Bridge – Modbus

SPC Bridge Modbus allows integration of Vanderbilt SPC intrusion system with a third-party system, e.g. a SCADA system, using the Modbus protocol. Using the SPC Bridge you are able to use events from all your SPC connected motion detectors, door/window contacts, fire detectors and alarm status for automations in the third-party system.

Main feautes:

  • SPC Bridge Modbus acts as a Modbus TCP server (only one Modbus TCP client connection is allowed at a time)
  • Provides SPC zone and area states/status to a Modbus TCP client, e.g. a SCADA system
  • Support for area and zone commands from a Modbus TCP client, e.g. arm/disarm, inhibit zone
  • SPC Panel Communication based on Vanderbilt official FlexC protocol
  • Web based Admin GUI
  • Recommended for maximum 128 zones and 16 areas. (The Modbus Register Map is designed for 256 zones and 16 areas. The recommendation is only an estimation. The actual limit depends on the use case, e.g. number of SPC events, number of motion detectors and the Modbus polling rate)
  • Recommended Modbus Client poll rate >= 2 seconds

SPC Bridge – KNX

SPC Bridge KNX allows interfacing Vanderbilt SPC intrusion system to a KNX system. Using the SPC Bridge KNX you are able to use events from all your SPC connected motion detectors, door/window contacts, fire detectors and alarm status for automations in your KNX system. SPC Bridge KNX includes a certified Weinzierl KNX interface for a reliable and approved connection to the KNX bus.

Main feautes:

  • Mirrors SPC zone and area states/status to KNX bus
  • Support for area and zone commands from KNX bus, e.g arm/disarm, inhibit zone.
  • SPC Panel Communication using FlexC (LAN)
  • Weinzierl KNX interface 332 or 312 is included
  • Communication objects configurable in KNX ETS.
  • Web based Admin GUI
  • Recommended for maximum 128 zones and 16 areas (The actual limit depends on the use case, e.g. how many motion detectors the SPC system has.)

SPC Bridge – Homey

SPC Bridge Homey integrates your Vanderbilt SPC system with your Homey Smart Home Controller. Events from the SPC system, e.g. arming, disarming, motion detected, contact open/closed, fire and burglary alarm, can be used as triggers and conditions in Homey Flows to control other equipments connected to Homey. From Homey Flows and mobile APP it is also possible to arm and disarm the SPC system.

Main feautes:

  • SPC FlexC IP communication (LAN)
  • Events from SPC system can be used as triggers and conditions in Homey Flows (scene engine)
  • Support for arming/disarming of the SPC system from Homey

SPC Bridge – Control4

SPC Bridge Control4 integrates Vanderbilt SPC system with a Control4 system. The SPC system is fully integrated in the Control4 GUI. All SPC events, e.g. arming, disarming, motion detected, contact open/closed, fire and burglary alarm, can be used as triggers and conditions in the Control4 system to control other equipments. From the Control4 scene engine system it is also possible to arm and disarm the SPC system.

Main feautes:

  • SPC FlexC IP communication (LAN)
  • Full integration of SPC in Control4 GUI (navigators)
  • Events from SPC system can be used as triggers and conditions in Control4 scene engine
  • Support for arming/disarming of the SPC system from Control4
