What features should I look for in a door entry system?
For February’s blog we caught up with Richard Burbidge, our AV Director, to find out why he recommends the Paxton Net2 Door Entry System for our SMBs.
Hi Richard! So, what drives your passion for a good door entry system?
Door entry systems aren’t the whizziest piece of kit around but they’re important as they aid building security and make our lives easier.
I see. And what’s the best thing about the Paxton Net2 Door Entry System?
What’s great about the Net2 Entry is that it is a plug and play solution that comes with a range of panel options and is suitable for a wide variety of sites.
So, what are the basics when buying a door entry system?
Anything that is placed externally is going to take a bit of battering from the weather so a robust external panel is essential. And this one comes with a rain hood for extra protection if wanted.
What if I already have a door entry system that I want to upgrade?
The great thing about Paxton’s Net2 Door Entry System is that it can be retrofitted to an existing panel replacing the existing back box.
And is there additional functionality if my office has areas of restricted visibility?
Should you have areas of restricted visibility a secondary IP camera can also be installed and integrated with the Net2 Entry system to allow extra security. This provides flexibility with the option to switch between the two cameras on the Net2 Entry Monitor.
So, how do I operate it?
A visitor initiates a video call via the bell button on the external panel. Visitor access can be granted via the Net2 Entry monitor, which features an intuitive touchscreen user interface.
Is there a hands-free mode for our receptionist to use?
The internal monitor can be used via either the handset for private calls or in hands-free mode.
And how can a visitor get access?
When connected to Net2, access to the building can be gained by using a PIN, Code or a pass.
Is there any other feature you want to mention?
It has a low light sensitivity camera for day and night use and it has IP and PoE technology for easy expansion.
And the whole thing is attractive to look at – which is always nice!
