Islington on the Green

Entry Premium Monitor with Net2 Provides Sleek and
Simple Access Management for Central London Apartments

Islington on the Green is a residential complex consisting of 70 modern, high specification apartments. Based in the heart of Islington, these properties boast all the benefits of a central Islington location, whilst maintaining the security of a private development with concierge.


Islington on the Green required an access control solution that would be simple to use, and could enable the Concierge and residents to grant access to visitors from the reception, and their individual apartments, respectively.

The General Manager of Islington on the Green, Rohn Thurman, worked with MAS Systems to ensure that the new access control system would meet their requirements. MAS Systems, based in East Sussex, specialise in electrical, security, CCTV and fire alarm installations within London and the South East. Neil Matthews, Fire and Security Systems Manager at MAS Systems, recommended Entry, Paxton’s video door entry solution, combined with Net2 to meet his clients’ requirements.


Paxton’s Entry system is so simple to install. With the introduction of the new premium monitor and touch panel, and the ease of operation for the residents and staff, Entry was the clear choice for Islington on the Green.

Net2 is a user friendly and flexible networked access control system, designed to make the management of any site straightforward. When used with =Entry, the solution provides a secure access management system that is easily used by all residents and building staff. Neil says: “I’ve worked with Paxton products for more years than I can count, I know Net2 inside and out. With the release of the Entry Premium monitor and Touch panel, I knew this would be the ideal solution for Islington on the Green.”

The new Net2 system electronically controls the main entrance to the building, as well as the private entrances to each of the 70 apartments. Islington on the Green are one of the first sites in the UK to benefit from the Entry Premium monitor, the latest addition to Paxton’s door entry range. The monitor has a smart, slim design to match the building’s modern interior, and incorporates a high quality digital camera for two-way communication with the Entry Touch panel fitted at the main entrance.

The Concierge at Reception can use the monitor to visually identify visitors to the building before granting access. The new monitor also enables them to divert calls to the relevant apartment where residents can permit access to visitors following two-way video communication, with the Entry Touch panel, or audio verification.


The Net2 system, together with premium Entry products, has provided Islington on the Green with a secure, high-end, access control solution, that gives residents the ability to grant or deny access to visitors, and gain access themselves with a simple token.

Rohn Thurman, General Manager, says: “The software is really easy to use, the Entry system is simple, and it does what we need it to, enabling the Concierge and residents to see who is calling, before buzzing people into the building. The new premium monitor also allows us to call the residents directly, saving us a trip up the stairs if we need to speak to them!”

The Net2 and Entry system provide a scalable solution, offering the opportunity to expand and secure any new sites in the same development complex, from the same centrally managed system.
