Paxton Unveils New Touchscreen Monitor, Wireless Door Handle
Both the Entry Standard monitor and PaxLock Pro–Latch work with Paxton’s Net2 networked access control system.
GREENVILLE, S.C. — Paxton Access has launched the latest additions to its range of wireless access control solutions and video intercom product line.
First up is the Entry Standard monitor, which the company describes as a versatile monitor that offers a feature-rich and cost-effective solution for a range of applications — from schools and hospitals to offices and apartments.
The monitor features full-duplex voice communication and a 4.3” capacitive touchscreen. It can also be quickly and easily installed either on a wall or desk mounted with or without a handset, according to the company.
The user interface with call and event log can be personalized with 14 different theme designs. A smart new call snapshot feature enables users to see missed calls.
The whole Entry video intercom system consists of three components that auto-detect on set up; external panel, interior monitor and door control unit.
Paxton says the monitor is a real plug-and-play solution that can be used with a range of panel options — standard, premium and vandal resistant — making the whole system flexible for a wide variety of sites.
The Entry video intercom system is fully compatible with Paxton’s Net2 networked access control system, as well as functional as a standalone solution. It comes with Paxton’s five-year warranty.
“The second-generation Entry Standard monitor blends contemporary aesthetics with high quality materials and clean user interface. Designed to fit into any environment with a variety of different themes, it allows the user to personalize the monitor to suit their tastes,” says Jeremy Allison, Paxton’s senior product manager. “The monitor features a glass covered capacitive touch screen and high-quality front facing speaker. Designed with simplicity in mind for both the installer and system user, there is no programming required.”
Next is the PaxLock Pro-Latch, a smart lockset designed for quick and easy installation to secure internal doors.
Available in black or white with an Eclipse or Galaxy handle, the PaxLock Pro-Latch is suitable for use on internal doors and a range of premises, according to the company. It is well-suited for education and healthcare facilities, as well as commercial premises like corporate offices, warehouses and retail outlets.
PaxLock Pro–Latch is UL-294 rated and can be installed either standalone, without a network or as part of Net2, Paxton’s flagship networked access control system.
The smart lockset goes into sleep mode when not in use in order to preserve battery life. Users can monitor events and battery status online, with alerts via email and SMS for added convenience and to ensure doors are always secure.
“The PaxLock Pro-Latch comes in direct response to customer feedback. It’s a highly robust product, with reliable construction, performance and operation. We can guarantee a quality product, built to last,” says Allison. “It can be used with a networked Net2 access control system for additional reporting features and centralized management. It is a great option for installers and integrators and we are already hearing some very positive feedback from the market. We always strive to meet our customers’ expectations and believe we have done that with this product.”
