Paxton Net2 Access Control
Also known as 'PC based' or 'Networked' access control, these systems may be used to control one or many doors in a building with a common database even though it may consist of different buildings and companies. Access is gained by using a code, or PIN via keypads, by presenting a proximity card or token or by 'possesion' with hands free tokens depending on which type of reader is fitted. A PC based access control system offers the adviantage of central control of many users and companies via the network.
This means that changes made at any PC client is sent to each of the doors according to the setup. A token or PIN can be barred from all of the doors instantly if required. Another benefit of the Net2 system is it's flexible control, allowing you to grant different permissions for individuals, groups of users or companies.
Reports can also be generated to see who went where and when and can be used for muster points etc.. The system also allows for the control of additional buildings via existing LAN/WAN. These PC based systems are increasingly being used for BMS to control other services within buildings, for example intruder alarms, fire doors, lifts and lighting.
