Paxton Net2 Software is an integral element of Paxton’s Access Control Systems. Without it, you wouldn’t be able to bind or command any of Paxton’s security solutions. Net2 offers centralised administration and control of sites using its cutting edge system. In just a few clicks, you can quickly tailor access privileges to groups or individuals with ease.

This easy-to-use, yet intuitive piece of software is designed to run on a PC. Specifically, one running Windows 8, Windows 7 or a Windows Vista operating system. Its simple interface also feels instinctively familiar for any Windows user. Paxton Net2 software comes in two unique versions: Lite and Pro.

Paxton Net2 Lite Software

This is ideal for the vast majority of sites and comes free of charge with Paxton access control systems. The Net2 Lite allows you to manage access privileges and report users. With it, you can set unlimited client logins (for free) and install basic intruder alarms and CCTV. It has an easy-to-use modular design that keeps simplicity in mind. The software is developed to adapt to expansive or reductive measures. This means that scalability is not an issue for Paxton’s access control systems.


Net2 Lite Software supports:

1. Custom Days
Create bespoke time periods for special events for differing levels of security

2. Live Events
Watch events unfold in real time or review historical events

3. Open Door Function
Paxton Net2 Software allows you to remotely open individual doors from your PC

4. Multiple Operator Levels
Unlimited users can manage a system with varying levels of security access

5. Reporting

8. Triggers & Actions

9. Turnstile Mode

10. Unlimited Client Workstations
Paxton doesn’t restrict the number of users who can access its free software.

11. User Image Verification
Enables an operator to visually identity a user attempting to gain access.
