Paxton Access Control – The Advantages

Paxton Access Control – The Advantages

Access control systems offer building managers a high degree of security, flexibility, and, above all else, control. And the Paxton Net2 systems are no exception.

Offering a high degree of simplicity and ease of use, this particular control system grows with the business, with extensive scalability options and features that meet your needs now and in the future.

With the ability to manage hundreds of doors and thousands of users centrally, administrators ultimately have the highest level of access, allowing you to manage all individual and group access rights, tailoring these to specific levels of authority throughout the business, monitoring activity and the flow of people in and out of the business, instant reporting to support decision-making, alerts for security breaches, and so much more.

But what is Paxton Net 2?

The Paxton access control system is IP-based and supports you in maximising your current infrastructure, allowing you to develop and build a collaboration between your sites/buildings that you can manage from one central location.

Using VPN or WAN you can now monitor and manage these sites individually with ease, meeting the specific requirements of each building without applying a `one size fits all` approach.

The Paxton systems are incredibly versatile, easy to use, and 100% effective.

Benefits of Paxton Access Control

Excellent reporting features – for management purposes, this system allows you to pull all relevant reports, providing you and your teams with the information you need instantly. Now you can make the most informed decisions and monitor activity throughout the entire building.

Flexibility – the flexible hardware and software design of Paxton Net2, in turn, provides you with a great deal of flexibility. For example, you can integrate other internal security systems such as fire and intruder alarms and CCTV with this system. The systems are also compatible with video intercoms, and wireless door handles. Ultimately, the Paxton access control works around your requirements.

Manage multiple sites remotely – If you’re looking to upgrade to a more remote solution, the Net 2 pro software can offer you just that, a remote solution that allows you to remain in complete control wherever you are, using any device. By downloading a free app, you are instantly provided with a high level of functionality.

Real-time information – now you can view live events, set doors to lock and unlock when required, open doors remotely, protect your site in an emergency, and monitor activity in real-time.

Free software updates – one of the many access control system benefits is that you will receive free software updates for life with Paxton. This means you will always have the most up-to-date features and functionalities.

No longer a need for keys – when multiple staff members require keys, more and more problems can arise. From staff losing keys to keys going missing or snapping, left in places they really shouldn’t be, staff not returning keys after they left the business – the list is endless. So instead, the main advantage of Paxton Access Control is that the system provides you with pin codes, electronic fobs, or key cards, providing you with instant access to the areas you are authorised to enter.

Less Expensive – believe it or not, access control systems can be less costly than continuously needing to get keys cut. In addition, if someone leaves the business, or you need to change access restrictions, you can easily do this by disabling the Paxton software, a much cheaper alternative to changing all the locks!

Increased security – with Net 2, you’re in complete control of who comes in and out of your organisation, enabling and disabling access depending on zones and an individual’s level of authority. To support and increase security, you can even monitor the movement of staff members, providing you with complete peace of mind that everyone has access to the areas they should. You will also be informed of security breaches, for example, if someone attempts to force entry, via email or text alerts.

Movement is more fluid – when you opt for the Paxton proximity reader, you no longer have to panic if your hands are full when approaching a closed-door because as soon as the reader detects you are within a certain radius, the door will automatically open. This is also particularly beneficial if you’re looking to improve disabled access throughout a building.

Quick and easy installation – Paxton software can be installed on any computer or laptop, allowing you to fully manage your entire access control system from the comfort of your desk. You can assign access, monitor movement, enable, disable key cards, and much more.
