Gareth O’Hara, Paxton’s chief sales officer, says: “The way our customers manage their site security is evolving; the ability to manage Net2 on the go is key to flexible site management. We have responded to customer feedback and designed Paxton Connect Admin to provide the features needed for simple site management available to use wherever our customers are.”
