Paxton Aims to Help Installers Provide COVID-Secure Buildings
A new initiative includes a free webinar to show installers how to match security offerings with practical considerations on operating safely in the workplace.
GREENVILLE, S.C. — Paxton is introducing free customized learning, new products and a new guide to assist installers in helping their customers ensure their buildings are COVID-secure. The initiative is said to have been designed in line with the CDC and OSHA best practices and recommendations.
In a new webinar, Paxton will show installers how to match their security offering with practical considerations on operating safely in the workplace. The 45-minue webinar, titled “Guide to COVID-Secure Buildings With Net2,” starts June 30 and runs each Tuesday and Thursday until July 16.
Paxton says its team of researchers has been thoroughly reviewing the CDC and OSHA recommendations to ensure the most relevant, up to date information is provided in the webinar. The webinar is said to provide useful advice to help installers reach out to their customers with confidence. The session covers four key areas:
- Contactless entry & exit – hygienic access, move away from touch-based devices
- Flexible access permissions – meet social distancing guidelines, limit high traffic and apply one-way flow of movement
- Occupancy management – control and monitor people numbers in any given area and support social distancing (new in Net2 beginning in July)
- Thermal scanning – use cameras to ensure health and wellbeing in high security areas and identify people that could be at risk, quickly
The access control provider is also launching a new release for Net2, specially developed to support social distancing. The new Occupancy Management feature in Net2, along with various improvements to integration with thermal scanners, is said to give installers the best options for safe, secure access.
Due for release in July, Net2 Occupancy Management allows users to limit the number of people in any given area; either barring access or sending an email/text to the building manager when a space nears capacity. It works across multiple areas of a site and can be set to operate a one in, one out system to support social distancing measures.
Paxton has also created a digital guide for end users, which explains in easy terms what to ask their installer to make their building COVID-secure.
“As a manufacturer of technology, in partnership with installation companies we have an opportunity to positively contribute to protecting people against COVID-19,” says Gareth O’Hara, chief sales officer. “Access control plays a key role in helping ensure buildings are COVID-secure. At present, thousands of buildings across the country are implementing new measures according to CDC and OSHA recommendations.”
As business owners currently strategize how to safely transition people back to work, O’Hara says Paxton’s message to security installers is: “Please don’t wait. We want them to start becoming familiar with the guidance and Net2 solutions and support their customers in making their buildings COVID-19 secure. From the webinar, to the supporting technical information, to the new Net2 release and free customer guide, we believe they will have everything they need.”
