Paxton Net2 Access Control integrates with Evacuation Monitoring
Paxton, the UK market leader of electronic IP access control and door entry solutions has announced the integration of its networked access control system, Net2, with Thinking Software’s evacuation monitoring solution, MUSTERD. The integration will provide a user-friendly interface to manage the safety of people in a building more easily.
The integration allows for the easy configuration of access control and real-time mustering. By staying synchronized with Net2, MUSTERD keeps a secure, resilient copy of each employee’s current location within the Net2 platform so that in the instance of a fire, or other emergency, the system knows everyone’s whereabouts. It provides real-time, dynamic lists of mustered and unsafe people during an evacuation, together with their last known whereabouts.
Paxton provides industry-leading access control systems which meet the challenges and trends of the security market. With over 30 years’ experience, the company offer engineering excellence, creating simple, yet intelligent and innovative products with simplicity designed in, ensuring they are straightforward to install, use and maintain. Net2 is the UK’s most popular access control solution, with more than 150 additional buildings being fitted out with it every week. The security system offers centralised administration and control of sites ranging from one to hundreds of doors, and thousands of users.
Thinking Software, founded in 1994, is a respected supplier of Workforce Management Solutions and related products. The company are dedicated to offering practical software design and innovative solutions to a range of sectors.
Steve Rothkopf, Thinking Software’s Managing Director, said: “When a fire-alarm sounds, words like ‘safety’ and ‘security’ suddenly take on real meaning. We’ve developed MUSTERD because we consider safety and security to be a basic human right, and believe that MUSTERD can provide them to the modern workplace.”
Gareth O’Hara, Paxton’s Sales and Marketing Director, said:
“At Paxton, we put our core values of simplicity and quality at the heart of everything we do, in order to answer the needs of the security market. It’s a pleasure to work with Thinking Software, a company who place as much importance as we do on supporting customers and developing innovative solutions.
We believe the Net2 and MUSTERD integration will accelerate the mustering process, increasing individual’s safety and peace of mind.”
