Manage multiple sites with Paxton10

Issue 3 2021 Access Control & Identity Management

The combined access control and video management system developed by Paxton recently received a new update which makes it more powerful and scalable than ever before. Thomas Faith, the Paxton10 product manager, discusses how installers and end-users can now benefit from Multi-site management functionality.

What was the inspiration behind the latest release for Paxton10?

Paxton10 is an ever-evolving system, developed through feedback from our installers and their end-users. Their wants and needs are the inspiration behind these new updates. Multi-site is a feature that has been highly anticipated by many existing and potential new Paxton10 users.


Thomas Faith.

Our overall vision will always be the driving force to continue developing the system, which is to make Paxton10 the simplest access control and video management system in the world.

So a single Paxton10 system can now work across multiple sites. Can you explain what the benefit of this is?

Multi-site management capability is applicable to many customers in the key markets that use the Paxton10 system. A lot of these businesses or organisations require the ability to extend access control across multiple locations. This could be two buildings on one site, or 100 buildings spanning multiple continents and everything in between. Now they can achieve this easily, with no complications and less expense than ever before.

Can you explain how the new Multi-site feature is setup within the Paxton10 online interface?

Traditionally, when installing access control and video surveillance across multiple sites in different locations, all buildings need to be connected via a WAN and often a VPN.With Paxton10, all you need is an Internet connection in each location and we handle the complexity.

All the installer needs to do is bind a controller from each remote site to Paxton10 using an activation code and serial number provided on the product. Then the controller becomes a local server and handles the discovery of all other Paxton10 equipment on the new site.

There is no licence to pay and it is completely backwards compatible. Meaning any Paxton10 Server already installed can be used to manage up to 100 sites and up to 1000 doors.

What does Multi-site mean for end-users?

For the end-user, Multi-site means no complication and no extra infrastructure. This makes it a cost-effective solution, as no networking experts are required to link sites together. Paxton10 Multi-site is effectively wide area networking made simple for access control and video surveillance.

If you have access to a keyboard and an Internet browser, you can achieve and maintain Multi-site with Paxton10.
