Modernised with the latest access control

Issue 4 2021 Commercial (Industry)

The Corsham Street building in London, United Kingdom, has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment and modernisation. As spaces within the building are leased to a variety of businesses, there are a number of different entry and access group requirements.

The new solution was installed by Seen Services, who completely removed the old system, replacing it with Paxton10, which combines video management with access control in a single platform.

Paxton10 offers an intuitive web-based user interface and can be installed with Paxton’s own camera range or can integrate with many leading IP cameras. Paxton’s free Paxton Key app also means that users with a smartphone or smartwatch can use Bluetooth virtual tokens in place of keyfobs or access cards, which are free to issue with Paxton10.

Additionally, the integration of Paxton’s simple door entry system allows an improved experience for visitors to the building. The touch screen entry panels were chosen for this project to enable companies in residence to display digital logos and facilitate video conversations with their visitors before granting access, using the internal monitors.

John Watts, director of RJM Projects & Design, who refurbished and assists to manage the building said: “We were impressed with the demo from Seen Services of the Paxton10 system. We looked at other systems, but it is a cut above the rest. The smart credentials and easy remote management of the system is what really won us over.”
