“unique feature”

Paxton launches Paxton Connect Admin app for enhanced site management

Paxton has launched a new app for managing Net2, Paxton Connect Admin.

The specialist in electronic IP access control and video door entry solutions says the app received glowing feedback from installers when it was previewed at IFSEC International and other trade shows around the world earlier in the year.

Some installers have been trialling the app for the past month too and again, Paxton reports that they were broadly impressed.

“This is a nice new application which will allow us to provide a unique feature not many providers have,” Angel Gallego of CCTV Center told Paxton.

Paxton Connect Admin, through which users can manage multiple sites remotely from a smartphone or tablet, includes four main features:

  • Open door – Open a door directly from your phone, wherever you are
  • User administration – Add, delete and edit users for easy management
  • Roll call – Quickly establish whether users are marked as safe in an emergency
  • Events and reports – Real-time updates provide live information on users’ locations

When signing into the app there is an additional level of security provided by smartphone biometric authentication.

Said Gareth O’Hara, Paxton’s chief sales officer: “The way our customers manage their site security is evolving; the ability to manage Net2 on the go is key to flexible site management. 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.

Paxton was recently named Company of the Year at the Brighton and Hove Business Awards, as well as in The Sunday Times 100 best companies to work for and, in 2017, among Europe’s fastest growing companies by the FT.
