Paxton10 Access Control & Video Management System
Paxton10, Paxton’s most powerful system yet, will launch on Feb. 1. Paxton10 combines next generation access control and video management on a single platform with FREE Bluetooth® smart credentials (Zero license fees), remote management functionality, license-free software and, for the first time - Paxton10 cameras.
The launch follows a period of in-depth research, development and engagement with installers.
“Paxton10 was designed with ultimate simplicity in mind, utilizing the latest technology to deliver powerful features, including the first ever cameras from Paxton,” said Jonathan Lach, vice president of sales at Paxton.
“Anyone who has worked with Paxton knows we take feedback very seriously. It plays such an important part in product development and has helped shape Paxton10, our most powerful, most complete system to date.”
Paxton released its first version of Paxton10 in the U.K. in September 2015, when it was installed across a variety of different sites with different needs.
“Since then we’ve been working closely with installers. We’ve incorporated their feedback and I can say that what we’ve achieved exceeds the original vision of Paxton10,” Lach said. “We’ll be offering our U.S. customers something they’ve never seen before.”
Other changes made as a result of customer feedback include compatibility with Paxton’s key systems – PaxLock Pro, wireless door handles, and Entry, our video intercom solution.
Some other exciting features include:
• Free Bluetooth® Smart Credentials (Zero license fees)
• Use of a smartphone or smartwatch as an access token
• Feature-rich video management software
• Paxton10 cameras, making system set-up simple
• Third-party IP cameras also supported
• Free iOS and Android apps to support remote site management and site access
“Our installers have told us they’re very excited about the direction we are going with Paxton10, particularly with the new technology. People really understand the need for a unified platform in the mid-market,” Lach said.
This need is based on statistics that show access control and video make up two-thirds of the security market – but only one in 10 sites integrate the two systems.
“People are becoming more demanding of their technology. They want a single point of management, rather than disparate systems, and they want to view and manage things on a hand-held device,” Lach said.
“New technology allows us to achieve these things but, as a manufacturer, we have a responsibility to make our technology as accessible and as simple as possible. We’re incredibly excited about the launch of Paxton10 in the United States and can’t wait to show customers what we’ve been working on.”
