New webinar launched today – our definitive guide to COVID-secure buildings to help Britain get back to work safely

By Gareth O’Hara, Chief Sales Officer

Today we’re launching our definitive guide to COVID-secure buildings to get Britain back to work safely, we hope you will join us.

Last month, the UK government released brand new guidelines – ‘Working safely during COVID-19’. These guidelines detail the steps various types of businesses must take in order to open up safely, and ensure their building is COVID-secure to protect employees and visitors. After some in-depth research into the guidelines, we made the decision to introduce something new to UK installers – free bespoke learning, a new COVID-19 specific Net2 feature and a brand-new guide to help you help your customers ensure their buildings are COVID-secure. We have designed everything specifically in line with the new government guidelines.

From today, in our new 45-minute webinar we will show you how to match your security offering with the ‘practical considerations of how to operate safely in the workplace’.

On top of this, we are also launching a new release for Net2, specially developed to support social distancing.

Like many installers right now, we recognise we have an important role to play in helping companies across the country update their buildings and reopen their businesses safely and securely to support the economy. As a UK manufacturer with over 35 years expertise in securing buildings, the route for Paxton is always through educating our trusted network of security installers to deliver genuine solutions for the real world. We know webinars work – they are a quick and easy way of sharing information, with nearly 2700 of you joining us for our last session in April & May.

The way we see it, as a manufacturer of technology, in partnership with our installers, we have an opportunity to positively contribute to protecting people against COVID-19. Access Control has a key role in helping ensure buildings are COVID-secure. At present, thousands of buildings across the country have to implement new measures to comply with the UK government guidelines. Right now business owners are working out how to safely transition people back to work. Our message to you, our security installers is simple: Please do not wait. We want you to start to become familiar with the guidance and Net2 solutions to support your customers in making their buildings COVID-19 secure. From the webinar, the supporting technical information to the new Net2 release and free customer guide, we believe you will have everything they need.

Since the new guidelines were released by the UK government in May 2020, our team of researchers have been thoroughly reviewing all the content to ensure we only share the most relevant, up to date information. The result is a webinar packed full of useful advice to help you reach out to customers with confidence. The session covers 4 key areas:

  • Contactless entry & exit – hygienic access, move away from touch-based devices, specifically referenced in government guidelines
  • Flexible access permissions – meet social distancing guidelines, limit high traffic & apply one-way flow of movement
  • NEW in Net2 from JULY 2020: Occupancy management – control and monitor people numbers in any given area and support social distancing
  • Thermal scanning – use cameras to ensure health & wellbeing in high security areas and identify people that could be at risk, quickly

 

As I mentioned earlier, part of the new plan is to introduce a new Occupancy Management feature in Net2 and some improvements to integration with thermal scanners to provide the best options for safe, secure access. Due for release in July 2020, Net2 Occupancy Management allows you to limit the number of people in any given area; either barring access or sending an email/text to the building manager when a space nears capacity. It works across multiple areas of a site and can be set to operate a one in, one out system to support social distancing measures.

But don’t just take it from me. Adam Stroud, Paxton CEO says: “We understand the important part that access control has to play in managing the flow of people around a building in order to support a hygienic environment. In addition, controlling the density of people in any given area is a valuable tool to help businesses of all types to become ‘COVID-secure’. Net2 is the best selling access control system in the UK and so we have developed the new Occupancy Management feature to meet this specific need. For new and existing Net2 customers we hope that this new functionality helps the efforts that we are all making to observe social distancing and keep people safe.”

Lastly, we have created a useful digital guide for end-users (FREE for all attendees) which explains in easy terms what to ask for to make their building COVID-secure. There’s also a handy series of technical application notes on each solution offered.

We know it’s a strange time and we genuinely want to help. There’s a lot of information for businesses to digest to make buildings safe and we hope we have broken it down into a digestible format so people can get started with confidence. Our new COVID-secure with Net2 customer guide should help anyone, even if they have no knowledge of access control so far.

Paxton’s new webinar, the Definitive Guide to COVID-secure Buildings with Net2 starts today and runs for the next month at 11am and 3pm, daily.

Paxton Raise the Standard With Latest Door Entry Monitor

Brighton – 12 May 2020

Paxton has added to their video entry product line by launching their next generation standard monitor – the Entry Standard monitor. Ideal for these changing times, there is no need to greet visitors in person at the door, the new monitor allows you to view guests via video before granting or denying access. This versatile product works as part of Paxton’s wider door entry system, Entry.

Developed in response to customer feedback, the new standard monitor offers a feature-rich and cost-effective solution for a range of applications – from schools and hospitals to offices and residential buildings. Like other Paxton products, this monitor is engineered with a focus on simplicity and ease-of-use.

The monitor includes advanced audio quality, full-duplex voice communication and a clear user interface on a 4.3” capacitive touch screen, making it the ideal choice for any building. Its simple user interface with call and event log can be easily personalised with 14 different theme designs and its smart new call snapshot feature enables you to see missed calls, so you never miss a visitor again.

Steve Rowlands, Global Product Manager, said: “The second-generation Entry Standard monitor blends contemporary aesthetics with high quality materials and clean user interface. It has been designed to fit into any environment. The monitor features a glass covered capacitive touch screen and high quality front facing speaker with a high contract screen ensuring the monitor is always easy to read”.

The whole Entry video system consists of 3 components that auto-detect on set up: external panel, interior monitor and door control unit. This monitor is a real plug and play solution that can be used with a range of panel options – standard, premium and vandal resistant, making the whole system flexible for a wide variety of sites. The standard monitor completes Paxton’s entry range, joining the Entry Premium Monitor, ideal for high-end sites and the recent Entry Audio Monitor, for sites where only audio verification is required.

Paxton’s door entry system is fully compatible with Paxton’s critically acclaimed Net2 networked access control system, which has just received a future proof update, Net2.v6.03, as well as Paxton10 – the new unified access control and video management solution. The monitor also works as part of a standalone solution and comes with Paxton’s industry leading five-year warranty.

When integrating video door entry with Paxton’s Net2 access control system, the standard monitor features action buttons giving customers an additional layer of control with functionality, like opening additional doors on the system or unlocking external gates.

New and notable in the Entry Standard monitor:

  • Smart, simple call and event log
  • 14 themed designs for end user customisation
  • Clear user interface on a 4.3” capacitive touch screen
  • High quality audio with front facing speaker
  • Full-duplex voice communication
  • Additional functionality with the unlocking of multiple system doors and external gates
  • Quick and easy to install, either to a wall or desk with or without a handset
  • Fully compatible with Paxton’s Paxton10 and Net2 systems or as part of standalone door entry solution

The Entry Standard monitor is now available to purchase from Paxton’s approved distributors.

The UK security manufacturer are also running free webinars and online training to support installers and end users so they maximise the potential functionality of Paxton products.
