As with the web-based systems this system boasts intuitive, user-friendly software, event reporting and centralized control of privileges.
Standalone access solutions
When less stringent security is required, like low-risk internal doors, for example, standalone access systems are the way to go. Paxton’s Compact Range is a perfect solution with benefits like:
1. Integrated control units and readers
2. Simple token management
4. Proximity, mag-stripe or keypads
For small to medium sites, that require high security, standalone systems, like Paxton’s Switch2, are perfect.
Systems like the Switch2 have the usual features and benefits, like scalability, separate control units and readers, simple token management and proximity – magstripe or keypads. However, the Switch2 is optimized for external applications with the control unit installed in a tamper-proof manner due to its high security requirements.
