Joining the premium and vandal resistant products, the Net2 Entry Audio monitor provides a cost-effective option, offering more versatility from the system. With a sleek, contemporary design, the new monitor will fit discreetly into its surroundings.

See what our UK Sales Manager, Sam Wade, had to say about our recent Paxton install:

"We recently took the decision to replace our own Access Control and Door Entry systems on our building. 

We had a few considerations to make when choosing a system, we needed something that would give us the functionality we required whilst also being compatible with our existing infrastructure. 

The existing infrastructure we had to work with was essentially a network of Cat5 cabling which in the main wired back to a central location.

We wanted to achieve a seamless integration between an access control and door entry package that offered a simple method for our staff members to enter the building and also for visitors to be welcomed in to the premises.

After making a case for numerous manufacturers within our vast portfolio, we chose the Paxton Net2 system."

Zoë our Operations Manager and Sam our UK Sales Manager recently went down to Brighton to visit one of our main suppliers, Paxton. This is what Zoë had to say about the day -

"We had a great day following our invite from Paxton to attend the factory and the new Paxton Training Centre.

We had the pleasure of Kate Dawes leading us around the factory, showing us how the UK made product is pieced together. With the new machinery and dedicated hands-on staff, it really is a sight to see. From the most popular Net2 controllers being welded with modules from machinery; the new Paxlock Pro being hand assembled, to the moulding of the readers, every part of the production really is fascinating.

After the in depth tour along with Neil, Paxton’s Production Manager, we were transported to the new Paxton Technology Centre. With its huge open plan space and dedicated training rooms, it really is worthwhile attending. We can assist in booking training sessions for you with the Paxton team if required. After meeting with the marketing team, Hannah and Lucy to name a few, and Senior Supply Chain Manager Paul, we even had time to stop off at Paxton’s dedicated Café."
