One year on

It’s been a busy twelve months for Paxton, the UK market leader of electronic IP access control and door entry solutions. A key focus has been placed on enhancing company culture, in line with the growth of the business, as well as the continued expansion of its product portfolio.

Net2 Entry Premium Monitor

The company has listened to installer feedback and increased its premium product options. The Net2 Entry Premium Monitor launched in April, this is the latest addition to its award-winning door entry system.

The new interior monitor provides a greater personalised experience together with an elegant aesthetic design. The smart, slim monitor, with simple user interface, includes a quality glass touch screen and 25 background themes making it ideal for a range of applications. This includes high-end residential, commercial buildings and healthcare sites.

The monitor has a host of new features including a concierge function, offering simple visitor and site management. This enables users who are busy or away to divert the monitor to reception, and if the caller is missed, enhanced call administration provides a video snapshot and event log of visitors.

Additional features include a high quality digital camera enabling two-way communication between users or the concierge, and a line-out for use with a T-Loop antenna for users with hearing aids.

The monitor is available in two variations, with or without a handset. A desktop stand is also available, making the monitor adaptable for various environments.

Gareth O’Hara, Paxton’s Chief Sales Officer says: “Following the successful release of the Net2 Entry Touch Panel last year we wanted to further increase the premium product options for our installers. 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. The elegant design and personalised experience provided by the Premium Monitor perfectly compliments our Net2 Entry range.

“As with all Paxton products this user-friendly solution is supported by our industry leading technical support, 5-year guarantee and a hassle free returns service.”

Paxton Technology Centre

November 2017 saw Paxton open the doors to its new state-of-the-art centre for technology and innovation, alongside its current UK head office in Brighton. The 29,000-sq. ft. Paxton Technology Centre is now home to the company’s product Research and Development departments.

The building was designed to create a dynamic and collaborative working environment and the open plan working space creates the perfect setting to support hundreds of decisions being made every day, to progress the company towards further global expansion and the diversification of its extensive product range.

It includes a new training suite which hosts the company’s free, installer training sessions.  Last year Paxton trained over 7000 installers across the globe on its range of security systems and the company has an ambitious target to increase this number in 2018.


Shortly after the opening of the technology centre, the company announced the launch of its scholarship programme.

This long-term initiative is designed to ensure that Paxton can secure the bright-minds needed for its continued success and prosperity. It offered the opportunity for students studying engineering and product design related courses at the University of Brighton to win one of three scholarship places each worth £10,000 plus a 3-month paid work placement with the company starting July 2018.

From those that applied, 16 students were invited to an assessment day, where they undertook a series of practical tasks and interviews. Following this, the successful three students were then selected.

Paxton hope the Scholarship will mean more than financial help for the students involved. It will provide industry experience, without having to take a year out from studying, which is invaluable to the students. It will also highlight the diverse range of roles available within the security industry and the opportunities offered within a growing and exciting business sector.

Sunday Times 100 Best Companies

2018 started on a high with Paxton named as one of the UK’s top employers with its 49th placed ranking in The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work for list.  The annual survey run by the ‘Best Companies’ organisation, recognises organisations and managers who genuinely value and respect their employees. The company was the only security manufacturer that made it onto the prestigious list.
