Your Resources to Create a COVID-Secure Building with Net2 Access Control

The knock-on effects of the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way that we work and the environments we work in. To make this transition as easy as possible we have created a range of resources to help you and your customers.

Our solutions can help you meet CDC and OSHA guidelines. Controlling access electronically means your customers can easily comply with these guidelines, and meet the standards for social distancing, hygiene, health and wellbeing.

We are proud to be a finalist in the Lockdown Hero of the Year category at the Fire & Security Excellence Awards. This is a new award, in recognition of the help and support companies have been providing their customers.
