Unlocking Paxton Access Control software

Smart intuitive software is the perfect partner for your door access.  Paxton Net2 software has features such as centralised administration and site graphics, which can help you get the best out of your access control system.

Paxton Net2 offers two levels of advanced PC-based software to support your security system up to 1,000 doors and 50,000 users; Net2 Lite and Net2 Pro.

Both options are user-friendly, and offer access to advanced features such as IP camera integration and ‘Triggers and Actions’, which allows you to set rules for notifications and alerts.

But which Paxton software is right for you?

Let's compare the two systems...

Net2 Lite is the standard level of Paxton Access Control software.  Free of charge and multi-client, this solution is ideal for most sites, and comes with free upgrades.  You can integrate third party readers and biometrics, meaning your security system can be more flexible.

If you’re looking for more extra features and advanced access control, including rollcall reporting, security lockdown and occupancy management, Net2 Pro might be a better fit for you.  This version of the Paxton software also comes with the Paxton Connect App and Net2 Online (the online user interface).
