09 Apr Paxton upgrades access control platform for multi-site security management
Paxton’s combined video management and access control platform, Paxton10, has received another update that now allows administrators to manage multiple sites, spanning cities, countries and even continents.
Paxton10 is the newest and most powerful access control system developed by the international security manufacturer is now available to selected markets in Europe, the US and South Africa.
By utilising Paxton10 Cloud Services, it is now possible for up to 100 sites to be managed by a single Paxton10 server. To connect the sites via the user-friendly web-based software, an activation code is used to simply identify a Paxton10 controller at the destination, and the system does the rest. The Multi-site feature in Paxton10 can be set up in minutes with minimal technical knowledge. It does not need a VPN, or any additional infrastructure.
Even with the introduction of multi-site, a single Paxton10 system can still support up to 1000 doors and 1000 cameras. Site administrators can add up to 50,000 users, with no additional license fees. This makes the access control system cost effective and is continuously scalable at the touch of a button using Paxton’s cleverly designed software.
Thomas Faith, senior product manager for Paxton10 explains: “The most impressive thing about Multi-site is its pure simplicity. Straightforward maintenance and setup have been our goal throughout its development.”
“Networking and achieving connectivity between sites can be notoriously complicated as there is a myriad of technology to navigate. With Multi-site, this is all in the background. What the installer or user sees is completely hassle-free as we really have made the usability intuitive and seamless.”
