One of the best brands for door access control in the world, Paxton Access is known for its simple, easy to install systems for both networked and standalone doors.

Networked Door Access Control

When you have multiple doors to manage, you need to connect individual doors to centralized software which will help you administer and manage all the doors from one place. That is one of the main advantages of having networked access control.

What does Paxton offer?

The networked system from Paxton provides

  • central control through Net 2 software, and
  • individual door access control via Paxton Net 2 controllers

The door controllers have to be connected to an online networked access control system or administration PC using an RJ45 plug into a standard TCP/IP Ethernet network. Any programming and access control function configured on the central PC is applied to each controller in the system.

However, each controller in the network works independently making its own decisions and storing event logs in case the server is shut. The Networked/IP, access control system, creates event reporting and flexible control for multiple doors.

Standalone Door Access System

What if you want a simple door access control without networking and central management set up? Paxton has a solution for you – standalone door access system.

A standalone door access system from Paxton can be configured in two way,

  • One or two Compact readers units wired directly onto a door panel to control access to the door or
  • Connected to a Switch 2 Controller (standalone access control from Paxton)

A standalone one door access system does not have the provision of using third party cards and credentials. The main disadvantage of a standalone system is that it does not offer monitoring and event reports; it merely works as an entry access solution for the door.

Did you know?

The Paxton Compact reader or keypad used in a standalone solution can only be used offline and has no provision for connecting to a PC or Server. Switch 2 cannot be connected or networked with another switch 2.

What is Switch2

A great solution for small sites, Switch2 is a simple, flexible standalone access control system. Suitable for external doors, it doesn’t require connection to a PC and comprises a control unit and a reader.

Why do you need Switch 2?

Being a standalone system, Switch2 requires no PC network, allowing you to install it on only those doors that you wish to. It also allows easy and quick addition of user tokens with the enrolment card that is supplied with the system. The administration is straightforward and can be done in a matter of minutes.
