Multi-site made simple with Paxton10

Issue 2 2021 Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection, Products

Paxton’s combined video management and access control platform, Paxton10, has received another update. The system now allows administrators to manage multiple sites, spanning cities, countries and even continents.

Paxton10 first launched in the UK in 2019 and is now available to Paxton customers in Ireland, France, Germany, Scandinavia, South Africa, Benelux and the U.S. One Paxton installer and the managing director of Seen Services, Bradley Lucas, said of Paxton10: “Due to its simple out-of-the-box installation process, this is our go-to access control solution. The system can be managed with ease from anywhere. Our engineers love using it, as do our clients.”

Paxton has been developing and updating Paxton10 based on real-time feedback from installers and end-users. This is to maximise the system’s future potential for expanding businesses with multiple sites, and public spaces such as school clusters or healthcare trusts.

With the latest software release, it is now possible for up to 100 sites to be managed by a single Paxton10 server. To connect the sites via the user-friendly web-based software, installers or end-users simply identify a Paxton10 controller at their destination site via an activation code, and the system does the rest. The Multi-site feature in Paxton10 can be set up in minutes with minimal technical knowledge. It does not need a VPN, additional licence nor any additional infrastructure.

Even with the introduction of Multi-site, a single Paxton10 system can still support up to 1000  doors and 1000 cameras. Site administrators can add up to 50 000 users, with no additional licence fees. This makes the system cost-effective and is continuously scalable at the touch of a button.

Thomas Faith, senior product manager for Paxton10 explains: “The most impressive thing about Multi-site is its pure simplicity. Straightforward maintenance and setup have been our goal throughout its development.

“Networking and achieving connectivity between sites can be notoriously complicated as there is a myriad of technology to navigate. With Multi-site, this is all in the background. What the installer or user sees is completely hassle-free as we really have made the usability intuitive and seamless.”
