Paxton announces upgrade to Net2 and Entertech biometric integration

April 21, 2015 - 

Access control solutions firm Paxton announced it has upgraded the integration of its networked access control system Net2 with Entertech, the official operating partner of Suprema Inc.

The announcement comes just a few months after Paxton first integrated Suprema’s biometric technology into Paxton Net2 software, which centralizes administration and control of sites ranging from one to hundreds of doors, and thousands of users.

Entertech’s BioConnect for Net2 allows users to seamlessly connect Suprema biometric readers and Paxton’s Net2 access control platform, enabling them to add biometrics to Net2 and provide a user-friendly interface.

Instead of managing badge records in two different systems (Net2 for access control and another for the biometric templates), BioConnect seamlessly integrates biometrics into the Net2 access control solution.

BioConnect achieves this integration via a simple enrollment window where users and badge records can be viewed and biometric templates can be added.

Frequent upgrades to Entertech BioConnect ensures the system keeps up with changing business requirements, with new functions and features released as they become available.

The upgrade features a number of improvements, including a setup assistant that allows users to automatically install and configure the SQL Server/database to work with BioConnect and connect to the Net2 system, a re-designed user interface with an improved layout, and new device management features offering simplified device control including firmware updates and network configuration.

“We are constantly listening to the needs of the security market and are committed to developing our products with the aim of delivering solutions our customers are asking for,” said Gareth O’Hara, managing director at Paxton GmbH. “The integration of Suprema biometric readers and Net2 access control has produced a leading solution for our customers. The simplicity of Entertech Systems’ BioConnect integrates well with our high quality, straightforward systems. The upgrades to the system combined with ease of use of the product means that the Suprema and Paxton system is an attractive proposition for a wide range of installers.”
