Healthcare buildings need to offer a safe and positive environment for both their employees and visitors and patients using their facilities. Additionally, they have numerous assets that need to be protected from misuse, theft or damage.

  • Limit public access to certain areas
  • Higher security for sensitive areas
  • Emergency lockdown

Customer feedback

Despite the huge number of staff, Net2 is still simple because the software is very intuitive. It is so easy to set up individual groups and different access levels for each group.

How Paxton helps secure healthcare facilities

Managing your building

Access control allows people to move freely about a building, whilst also allowing specific areas to be managed with higher security. For example, operating theatres or the pharmacy. Additional management benefits include:

  • Timesheet – use readers to capture when employees clock in or out to help with payroll
  • Card designer – add a photo and information to cards to enable the system administrator to visually confirm the identity of user
  • Door entry – allows you to communicate with your visitor before granting them access to your building
  • Site graphics – import 2D images of your facility to give a clear visual of door open or alarm status for security personnel

Setting access rights

Depending on which solution you choose, access permissions can be managed from a PC or locally at each door. Either way, our solutions can help you manage your site with a range of access permissions.

  • Wireless door handles –  a great way to quickly secure a single or multiple doors such as storage cupboards or pharmacies
  • Temporary access– provide day patients with a token that has a time restriction if they forget to return their token
  • Emergency lockdown – secure a site at the touch of a button in the event of an emergency

Automated security settings

Automation allows you to run your building efficiently, gaining more from your system than just a security solution by making it easier to associate an action to an individual, or a group of people.

  • Roll call – can also be automatically generated in the event of a fire alarm to identify who is safe in the event the building needs to be evacuated
  • Triggers and actions– administrators can easily create rules based on events in their system. For example, if a door is forced open you can receive an email notification instantly with any associated CCTV footage

Integrating the system

Integrating with other systems can make your building more streamlined and secure.

  • Intruder alarm – control your intruder and access systems as one across different areas of your building and minimise false alarms
  • Fire alarm – program your fire doors to automatically open in the event of an emergency
  • CCTV – link footage to specific access events in our software
  • Lift control – utilising I/O boards the system can be configured to control access into lifts and to individual floors
