Paxton to Combine Access Control, Video Management Into Single Platform With Paxton10
Paxton says the launch of the Paxton10 platform follows a period of in-depth research, development and engagement with installers.
GREENVILLE, S.C. —Paxton announces it will launch Paxton10, what it dubs as its most powerful system yet, on Feb. 1.
Paxton10 combines next generation access control and video management on a single platform with free Bluetooth smart credentials (zero license fees), remote management functionality, license free software and, for the first time, Paxton10 cameras.
The launch follows a period of in-depth research, development and engagement with installers, according to the company.
Paxton’s Vice President of Sales Jonathan Lach says, “Paxton10 was designed with ultimate simplicity in mind, utilizing the latest technology to deliver powerful features, including the first ever cameras from Paxton. Anyone who has worked with Paxton knows we take feedback very seriously. It plays such an important part in product development and has helped shape Paxton10, our most powerful, most complete system to date.”
Paxton released its first version of Paxton10 in the U.K. in Sept. 2015, when it was installed across a variety of different sites with different needs. Lach explains, “Since then we’ve been working closely with installers. We’ve incorporated their feedback and I can say that what we’ve achieved exceeds the original vision of Paxton10, and a lot more. We’ll be offering our U.S. customers something they’ve never seen before.”
Other changes made as a result of customer feedback include compatibility with Paxton’s key systems – PaxLock Pro, wireless door handles, and Entry, the company’s video intercom solution.
Lach adds, “Our installers have told us they’re very excited about the direction we are going with Paxton10, particularly with the new technology. And people really understand the need for a unified platform in the mid-market.”
This need is based on statistics that show access control and video make up two-thirds of the security market — but only one in 10 sites integrate the two systems, according to the company.
Additional Paxton10 features include:
- Use of a smartphone or smartwatch as an access token
- Third-party IP cameras also supported
- Free iOS and Android apps to support remote site management and site access
Paxton will be showcasing Paxton10 during a series of webinars beginning this week. To learn more or sign-up, click here.
