Hello ?

Covid 19 has affected all our lives in one way or another. The government’s Covid 19 secure guidelines with Paxton’s Net 2 System incorporating NEW Occupancy Management is a solution for many workplaces and could be used almost anywhere.

Paxton one of the leading access control manufacturers who are based in Brighton, well known for their Net 2 and Net 10 systems as well as standalone systems. They have been established for over 35 years.


The Net 2 PRO software system has a new feature available in Version 6.04 and above software.

The occupancy management was designed with the use of government guidelines on Covid 19 and reducing the risk for employers. The guidelines have 8 main parts, 6 of which can be applied to access control.

1.1 Managing risk

3.1 Coming to and leaving work

3.2 Moving around buildings and sites

4 Managing visitors, customers, and contractors
