by Brianna Crandall — May 8, 2017 — Paxton, the U.K.-based provider of electronic Internet protocol (IP) access control and door entry solutions, recently announced the launch of the Net2 Entry Touch panel, the latest addition to its award-winning door entry system.

The new panel comes with a host of premium features, including a quality 7-inch color touchscreen and personalization options, making it suitable for more sites than ever before. Ideal for a range of applications, including commercial buildings, leisure facilities and hotels, the advanced functionality and intuitive operation of Net2 Entry Touch means installers can now offer their customers a premium security option as part of the Net2 Entry range.

The new panel is designed to be straightforward to navigate and comes with a host of premium features, including a quality 7-inch color touchscreen and personalization options.

The product’s stylish design plus excellent build quality has recently seen it awarded a prestigious design award, the 2017 iF DESIGN AWARD in the Building Technology category. This global award program recognizes excellence in design across a variety of product categories.

Designed in direct response to installer feedback, the new touch panel is available in three variations, flush-mount, surface-mount and rain hood. The panel has an IK7 impact protection rating with an easy to read anti-glare screen for optimal daytime viewing. The new user interface is simple and straightforward to navigate, offering dynamic search functionality alongside customizable branding options.

Additional features also include a line-out for use with a T-Loop antenna for users with hearing aids and an advanced sound processor for clearer sound quality in busy, high traffic areas, plus a high-contrast theme to make the screen easy to read.

Pitched as the simplest door entry system available, Net2 Entry consists of just three components that auto-detect on set up; external panel, interior monitor and door controller, for a true plug-and-play solution.

Gareth O’Hara, Paxton’s chief sales officer, says:

We released our Net2 Entry system in 2012 and have been delighted with the success of the product across all of our key markets. By combining the latest available technology and listening closely to our customers’ feedback we continue to make improvements to what is one of our fastest growing product lines. However, the launch of our new touch panel which combines premium features together with Paxton’s trademark simplicity, at an extremely competitive price point, marks a real step change for the video door entry market.

The Net2 Entry Touch panel is a user-friendly solution that combines stylish design coupled with high-quality features but still supported by Paxton’s industry leading technical support, five-year guarantee and a hassle-free returns service.
