Paxton: Net2 Entry Touch Panel
Paxton is a finalist in the 2017 Benchmark Innovation Awards with its smart addition to the Net2 Entry simple door entry solution. The Net2 Entry Touch panel adds a premium touch to its award winning door entry system.
The panel comes with a host of advanced features, including a quality 7 inch colour touch-screen and a range of customisation options to enhance the benefits for installers and integrators. Selection of a touch-screen device is often driven by a desire for enhanced aesthetics, and this has been recognised by the design team at Paxton as the unit includes no visible fixings or screws. This additionally helps to deter tampering attempts.
To ensure a high degree of security, the panel supports credential-based access. It boasts a dual frequency proximity reader, thus allowing the use of EM and HID Prox as well as Paxton and MIFARE credentials. This can also be supplemented with the use of a PIN where two-factor authentication is desired. It is also SIP compatible, making it simple to integrate with smartphones, compatible mobile devices and PCs via an appropriate app.
The 2017 iF DESIGN AWARD-winning panel has been designed in direct response to feedback from installers and integrators. It is available in three variations: flush-mount, surface-mount and rain hood.
The panel has IK7 impact protection rating, and features an easy-to-read anti-glare screen for optimal daytime viewing. Other features include dynamic search functionality.
For applications where inclusivity is essential, the Net2 Entry Touch Panel can meet all requirements. It includes a line-out for use with a T-Loop antenna for hard-of-hearing users. Audio is enhanced thanks to an advanced sound processor. Additionally, the high contrast theme of the panel makes the screen easier to read. It also remains energy-efficient, as it automatically dims when not in use.
Pitched as the simplest door entry system available, Net2 Entry consists of just three components that auto-detect on set up: an external panel, the interior monitor and the door controller, for a true plug-and-play solution. To ensure high levels of flexibility and scalability, the panel is ideal for all applications, whether using a single device in a standalone mode or supporting systems using up to 100 panels.
Gareth O’Hara, Paxton’s Chief Sales Officer, stated, ‘We released our Net2 Entry system in 2012 and have been delighted with the success of the product across all of our key markets. By combining the latest available technology and listening closely to our customers’ feedback, we continue to make improvements to what is one of our fastest growing product lines. However, the launch of our new touch panel, which combines premium features together with Paxton’s trademark simplicity at an extremely competitive price point, marks a real step change for the video door entry market.
‘The Net2 Entry Touch panel is a user-friendly solution that combines stylish design coupled with market-leading features, supported by Paxton’s industry leading technical support, a five year guarantee and a hassle-free returns service.’
Installers are invited to see the Net2 Entry Touch panel for themselves at the Paxton stand, D850 at IFSEC 2017.
