IFSEC Global Host COVID-Secure with Net2 Webinar

20th November 2020 – Brighton


Over the summer Paxton developed COVID-secure updates for their flagship access control system Net2, as well as a no-nonsense webinar based on the UK Government Guidelines- ‘working safely during the coronavirus’.  This 30-minute webinar was well received by Paxton installers, with over 2000 attendees. Paxton later made the webinar available on-demand in September this year.

The webinar has now been updated with new information to highlight the latest features to be added to the access control system. This coincides with the completion of Paxton’s series of COVID-secure solutions for Net2.
Paxton have partnered with IFSEC Global who are currently hosting the latest version of the webinar on their website, until the 19th of December 2020. It will also remain available on Paxton’s website and online training platform to help support their installers to create COVID-secure systems.


Subjects covered in the webinar include:

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

 Flexible access permissions – meet social distancing guidelines by limiting access to high traffic areas and implementing a one-way flow of movement

• Occupancy management – assign visitors and staff to designated areas as well as monitor people numbers with alerts to support social distancing

• Thermal scanning – use 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

Paxton have also published a vast library of COVID-resources for installers on their website, along with new Net2 tutorials to help implement the innovative updates. These are a great starting point for installers to get to grips with how access control can help minimise risk on site during the pandemic.
