The Paxton Net2 integration developed by Paxton Access Ltd is a plug-in integration that combines Paxton Net2 Access Control with XProtect® software.

Paxton Net2 Access Control is an advanced PC-based access control system that can control access for up to 1000 doors and up to 50,000 users.

The plug-in integrates Paxton Net2 Access Control directly into XProtect® Smart Client and allows the user to control access and monitor video surveillance from one unified interface, eliminating the need to run two separate applications. The Paxton plug-in integration enables the user to open and close doors while simultaneously viewing video footage of the doors.

The Paxton plug-in captures critical events from the Paxton Net2 server and registers them as alarms in the XProtect Smart Client. These alarms are automatically linked to relevant video footage from corresponding cameras.

The Access Control tab of the XProtect Smart Client will display events with filters directly from Net2 Access Control. User and door information is also supplied giving the operator a high level overview of the Access Control system as a whole.

Doors and cameras can be placed upon a site graphic, giving an overview of the positioning of cameras and doors in relation to the site. The screens can be adapted to show the operator the information they are interested in and the system, by means of pop up notifications, can alert the operator as situations occur. 

Key features

  • Users can seamlessly control cameras in their surveillance system, such as starting/stopping recording, changing video frame rate and moving camera to focus on a door
  • Monitoring events are issued by the Net2 system using the Alarm Manager in XProtect Smart Client
  • Allows users to open and close doors through the map function of the XProtect Smart Client
  • User, door and event information are issued by the Net2 system using Access Control in XProtect Smart Client
  • Popup notifications configured to individual needs to display the alarms of interest
  • User management and administration from with XProtect Smart Client
