Paxton launches Net2 update

Issue 4 2020 Access Control & Identity Management

Paxton’s networked access control software Net2 has been updated. Net2.v6.03 makes remote management and the security of sites more straightforward than ever before. With many businesses across all sectors finding ways to adapt to social change, this latest update will prove highly useful.

Net2 access control has been enhanced to support installers and end users with the next generation of remote management. Being able to access and secure a site remotely and easily is incredibly valuable for many. Installers can now manage a system via web browser using Net2Online or using the smartphone app Paxton Connect.

Paxton has developed these updates based on customer feedback, following the initial launch of Net2Online and Paxton Connect, last year. Gareth O’Hara, the chief sales officer for Paxton said: “We continue to focus our Web UI and app development by delivering the most useful aspects of our software. V6.03 delivers a number of very useful features for managing site security remotely, features which will be of much benefit for our installers and their customers during the current circumstances and in the future.”

By joining user administration, roll call and reporting, the new functionality means installers can exercise a higher level of security and flexibility over site management, when and wherever they are, at the touch of a button.

New and notable for Net2 access control:

• Lockdown – secures your site at the touch of a button and can quickly disable user access.

• Access Level Management – determines site areas users can access by creating exclusion zones.

• Advance Door Control – opens a door directly from your device wherever you are .

• Timezones – automates access to control movement of people at specific times.

• Event Filters – quickly finds specific events for site management.

Chris Birch, a key member of the Net2 development team explains: “Throughout our stringent development process, the installers we have engaged with have emphasised that the security of their empty sites is of utmost importance. We have had great feedback on the system’s ability to be able to lockdown site doors from any device, anywhere. This is proving to be an invaluable new feature for Net2. Being able to do this remotely means our customers will no longer need a member of staff manning the system at all times”.

Paxton Connect, for iOS & Android and Net2Online are accessible from any device with an Internet connection. They are free to existing users of Net2 Pro software, offering added convenience at no extra cost.
