5 reasons you need Paxton Access Control

There are many companies that design and manufacture access control systems, however, after over 20 years in the business of providing security systems to businesses throughout the North West, we have yet to find a range of products as versatile, easy to use and effective as the ones produced by Paxton. It is for this reason that we are approved installers of Paxton Access Control systems.

If you’re unsure whether a Paxton Access Control system is right for your business, we have provided a helpful list of the 5 major benefits of having such a system.

1. No need for keys.

One of the main benefits of having an electronically control access system is that it eliminates the need for multiple members of staff to have their own keys. Instead, staff are given PIN codes, electronic FOBs or key cards, which they can use to enter the areas they are authorised to do so.

Not only is this cheaper than getting keys cut for individual members of staff, but it also means that if a key is lost, stolen or falls into the wrong hands, there is no need to change the locks – the PIN, FOB or access card can simply be disabled using Paxton’s software.

2. Intelligent Security

Paxton Access Control systems such as Net2 are controlled electronically with easy-to-use software. This can be used to control who in your organisation has access to which zones, enable and disable PINs and cards, and even monitor the movements of individual staff members within your premises. This intelligent software puts you in control, providing you with peace of mind when it comes to the security of your premises.

3. Hands free access if you need it

In certain situations it can be cumbersome and downright inconvenient to have to get your keys out every time you need to gain access to an area of your business. Paxton’s state-of-the-art proximity readers will give you access as soon as they detect that you are within a certain radius of the reader. This is especially beneficial for applications such as hospitals, warehouses and offices, as can also improve disabled access.

4. Take control from the comfort of your desk

Paxton’s innovative software is simple to use and can be installed on almost any desktop computer or laptop. Once installed, it allows you to have control over your entire access control system from the comfort of your desk. It puts you in control, allowing you to assign access zones, give and restrict access to individuals, monitor movement, enable and disable key cards, and access a whole host of other features depending on the specific system you have purchased.

5. Be alerted of security breaches, wherever you are

Paxton Access Control systems can be set up so that they inform you of security breaches such as someone trying to force entry through a door or trying to access a restricted area. These alerts can be sent via email or straight to your phone in the form of a text message, enabling you to stay informed wherever you are.

These are just 5 of the many benefits of having a Paxton Access Control system. If you would like more information about installing an access control system, or require information about upgrading or maintaining an existing system, get in touch with us today and we’ll be happy to help.
