Paxton has brought new additions to their Net2 access control product line, helping installers make their customers’ buildings more COVID-secure. The latest version of Net2 – v6.04, is now ready for installers to download. It features Net2 Occupancy Management which allows organizations to limit the number of people in any given area; either barring access or sending an email or text to the building manager when a space nears capacity. It works across multiple areas of a site and can be set to operate a one in, one out system to support social distancing measures. In addition to this update, installers who want to use thermal scanning to help limit the spread of the virus can do so with three new thermal scan integrations.

Adam Stroud, Paxton CEO says: "We understand the important part that access control plays in managing the flow of people around a building in order to support a hygienic environment. In addition, controlling the density of people in any given area is a valuable tool to help businesses of all types to become COVID-secure."

Occupancy Management with Net2 v6.04:

  • Ensures users maintain a safe social distance by setting and controlling the maximum number of people in any given area.
  • Gives real-time visual reports to see live occupancy levels in a clear, web-based visual report from smartphone, tablet, PC or widescreen wall display.
  • Allows for dynamic control of entry permissions, allowing users to set alerts and prevent user access when maximum capacity is neared or reached.

Paxton has also tested a range of thermal scan hardware and the company’s free, 45 minute webinars will take installers through what is available and how to apply the solutions.
