New Net2 tutorial series available

Issue 2 2021 News

Paxton has produced a new series of Net2 tutorials to support installers with the latest features in its access control software. The short informative videos provide guidance on how to make buildings COVID-secure with Net2.

The unprecedented nature of the coronavirus has led many businesses and building developers around the world to consider how people can move safely around their sites, maintain social distance and ensure their business remains economically productive in the months ahead. In what seems to now be the new normal, varying degrees of social restrictions are likely to remain in place across many countries.

Gareth O’Hara, the chief sales officer for Paxton, explains: “We recognise the role that access control has to play in making buildings safer and limiting the spread of the coronavirus. As a technology company, we wanted to provide a solution that addresses the problems posed by the pandemic and help people to safely return to work.”

Since the start of the pandemic, Paxton has introduced several updates to its flagship access control system, Net2. To roll out these updates quickly and efficiently, as well as provide simple and useful information for its installers and end users, Paxton has produced five easy-to-digest tutorial videos, each of which showcases the new features and the potential to reduce contamination among users on site.

Contactless access control – hygienic access via touchless entry and exit points, moving away from touch-based devices, specifically referenced in UK government guidelines.

Flexible access permissions – meet social distancing guidelines, limit access to high traffic areas and implement a one-way flow of movement.

Occupancy management – assign visitors and staff to designated areas and monitor people numbers with alerts to further support social distancing.

Thermal scanning – use thermal cameras to support health and wellbeing in high-security areas and identify people that could be at risk.

Checkpoint control – set designated checkpoints in specific areas of a building where users must be validated before they can access other areas.

Alongside the software updates and tutorials, Paxton’s on-demand webinar is also available to help new and existing installers to identify how access control can help make their specific sites secure and in line with current government guidance.
