Paxton: Secure Your Site During Outages With Efficient Battery-Powered PaxLock
Paxton’s battery-run, energy-efficient door handle, PaxLock Pro, is an ideal door lock solution when power supply is limited.
Rising energy costs have been an ongoing concern for many businesses and households in the U.S. When many locks are powered and maintained by mains, the question is, how do you ensure your building is secured during shutdown?
The energy-friendly design of the door handle is explained: PaxLock Pro will enter a sleep mode when not in use, requiring minimal energy. When a person presents their token to the door, built-in capacitive sensors will wake the unit. This minimizes energy consumption, allowing longer battery life.
PaxLock Pro is designed to be compatible with any DIN standard lock for a quick and simple installation. It works as standalone or with Paxton’s access control systems Net2 and Paxton10, meaning it can be used in a broad range of applications and is futureproof as a site’s requirements change and grow.
When the power supply is unstable, the door handle is designed to store access privilege data locally. That means once an end user is registered, they can gain access to the door even when mains are out.
A bonus benefit that PaxLock Pro brings when used with Paxton10 is the license-free smart credentials.
Users can make use of their smartphone or smartwatch for free in place of traditional keys or electronic tokens to gain access to any Paxton10 door. System administrators can issue smart credentials at the touch of a button, making building management even more simple and cost-effective.
