Which System is best?

Paxton Access manufacture two types of access control system:

Paxton 1. Standalone Access Control.

This type of system may be used to control access on one or many independent doors in a building. Access is gained by using a numeric code, or PIN with a keypad, or by presenting a proximity or magstripe token, depending on which type of reader is fitted.

These ayatems are programmed at each door. If tokens need to be barred or codes changed; this action must be completed at every door on the system.

Typical applications:

  • Small Business Premises
  • Sports Clubs
  • Storage Units
  • Any Small or Medium sized Site requiring Access Control

Standalone systems are great for smaller sites with a reelatively small number of users, token management is simple and the system can be extended easily as your requirements change.

System 2:

Paxton 2. PC Based Systems.

We manufacture Net2, an advanced PC based Access Control Solution that will give you control over  who has access to your building. With Net2 you can control access on thousands of doors for up to 50,000 users. Our software allows you to manage this in a logical and intuitive way.

Net2 is one of the most economical access control systems on the market. Plus, there are no hidden costs such as per seat licences; the software may be loaded on all the PC’s in a building if required. Net2 Lite Software, which includes all the features most organisations will need, is in fact free.

Perhaps even more importantly your investment is furture proofed. Adding additional doors in your building as your need change is straightforward and cost effective. In addition, all new innovations to the system are designed to be backward compatible. Also, software upgrades are FREE!


 Net2 offers the key requirements of a PC based Access Control System:

  • Central Control
  • Flexible Access Permissions
  • Reporting

Importantly this software gives you full control over the system from your desk. Any instructions given to the software are immediately updated at all doors. Adding users, barring users and changing users’ access permissions are all done from the PC quickly and easily.

Also, if your company has several buildings, access to all of them can still be controlled from one location. Net2 will control many buildings in different locations using TCP/IP across your existing network.

Access permissons may be set individually or by department. This makes setting up different permissions for different groups of people quick and straightforward. Some areas may be restricted to only a certain group of users. Shift patterns may be set for departments and those permissons are allocated instantly when a new user card is issued.

An events screen allows viewing of ‘real time’ events as they are happening. Monitor who is where in a building, if doors have been left propped open or a door has been forced open. In addition to the ‘live’ information, reports can be easily created from the software.
