Paxton grants access to 600

September 2018 Access Control & Identity Management, Asset Management, EAS, RFID

Located in Saint Léonard, France, SBE is one of the leading European organisations in electronic service, repair and aftersales support. With 600 employees, the group’s factories handle more than three million devices a year from across Europe, from mobile phones to digital cameras and TVs. SBE has three European technical centres, each with a call centre and several high-tech production facilities.

SBE required a flexible access control solution that would allow it to secure external access to its buildings and workshops. The existing access control system needed to be updated. Due to the substantial number of employees accessing its premises on a daily basis, SBE wanted to ensure it had a database that would keep track of the movement of people across the five buildings across three separate sites.

SBE requested the help of installation company, Domotic Opale, which recommended Net2 access control with Net2 Entry, Paxton’s video door entry system, to provide flexible visitor management and a user friendly interface.

Net2 is a simple and flexible networked access control system, designed to make the management of any site straightforward. Sébastien Choquet from Domotic Opale, said: “This is our first time installing Net2, and the installation went very smoothly. SBE needed to streamline security by setting employee access permissions to areas such as the server, workshops, stock rooms and offices. We knew the Net2 system was the right choice because, as well as access control, it offers the ability to provide them with an event log and daily report to keep track of any fraudulent entry attempts. SBE also required multi-user management, the Net2 system is now installed on four PCs for convenience.”

Net2 allows employees and site visitors to be easily added or removed from the system, access permissions can be set for the specific times in which they need to gain access. The Net2 system provides the management team at SBE with alerts when unauthorised tokens are used in an attempt to gain access to the buildings, increasing the level of security during unmanned hours.

The Net2 system, alongside Net2 Entry, has provided SBE with an increased level of security for the workshops on its sites. The Timezones feature in Net2 is used to enable specific areas to remain open during hours when workshops are in use, these zones are then automatically secured when the building is empty.

Simon Ezeque from SBE, said: “The Net2 system has provided a greater sense of security for our customers’ equipment, because it enables us to manage access permissions for individual employees and secure different zones separately; including access to the workshops, stock rooms and offices, it is the perfect solution for us.”

With plans to acquire additional premises in the near future, the scalability of Net2 presents the opportunity for simple expansion. As the business continues to grow, their Net2 system can adapt to accommodate SBE’s requirements.
