UK-based electronic IP access control and video door entry solutions manufacturer, Paxton, has announced the launch of its new app for managing Net2, Paxton Connect Admin.
Available on iOS and Android, the app has already been previewed at a variety of shows across the globe, including IFSEC International, Securex South Africa and ISC West where it reportedly received fantastic feedback from installers.
In terms of the technology itself, the manufacturer describes its app as providing easy and flexible site management for Net2 System Engineers and Operators.
Paxton Connect Admin has also received positive feedback from the manufacturer’s user community, being described as highly recommended from the Paxton installers which have been trialling the app for the past month.
The app contains several important features in one smart user interface and enables users to manage multiple sites remotely from a smartphone.
Its key features include Open Door – the ability to open a door directly from a phone, wherever the user is; User Administration – the ability to add, delete and edit users for easy management; Roll Call – which allows people to quickly establish whether users are marked as safe in an emergency; Events and Reports – which is a tool that delivers real-time updates for live information on users’ locations.
Going into more detail, Open Door shows users which doors then have access to and gives visual feedback with a green flash for opened doors and red for denied.
User Administration allows users to manage anti-passback, intruder alarm and lockdown user rights as well as add and edit images of users and add tokens to users via access denied events.
With Roll Call, it is possible to see users’ last known positions, call users via the app and view a users’ image as stored within Net2.
Finally, the reporting included within Events and Reports sees default Net2 reports appear within the app, while users can also view live Net2 events and dynamically search events and reports. The reports default to the last 365 days.
“The way our customers manage their site security is evolving; the ability to manage Net2 on the go is key to flexible site management,’ said Gareth O’Hara, Paxton’s Chief Sales Officer.
“We have responded to customer feedback and designed Paxton Connect Admin to provide the features needed for simple site management available to use wherever our customers are.”
The app is available to download now from both the App Store and Google Play. When signing into the app there is an additional level of security provided by smartphone biometric authentication.
