Trinity specified Net2, Paxton’s flagship access control system to meet the client’s requirements. Net2 is a user-friendly and flexible networked access control system designed to make the management of any building incredibly simple.
A total of eight doors at the site are now controlled using Net2 software utilizing their existing VPN/WAN network connection. Due to a lack of sufficient cabling routes and limited mains supply, Trinity also opted to install Net2 PaxLock, a wireless access control unit in a door handle. The Net2 PaxLock communicates wirelessly with Net2, reporting events back to the server PC.
The flexibility and centralized administration of the Net2 software means that reception can now indicate specific time frames that a visitor’s access token is valid for. Even if a token is not returned, the auto-expiry function will prevent future access. When utilizing the door and building grouping function within the software, the the site can be split into specific areas making adding or removing access permissions simple and straightforward.
Monitoring visitor arrivals was another key requirement for the client. Trinity installed Net2 Entry to the entrance, with a Net2 Entry Monitor at reception and a second monitor located elsewhere should the receptionist be away from the desk. Pitched as the simplest door entry system available, Net2 Entry consists of just three components that auto-detect on set up; external panel, interior monitor and door controller, for a true plug and play solution.
Since Net2 was installed Ingram Micro have been extremely satisfied with the security solution allowing them to use it for effective security and building management. Jan-Adriaan DeVilliers, General Manager, at Ingram Micro says: “We found the Paxton system very easy to use and felt confident using the software in less than a day. We are now able to view and monitor who can access which areas of the site by setting specific access rules. Plus the ability to extend the system in the future is also beneficial.”
