Paxton Door Entry: Best security system on the market? 

Door entry systems are a tried and tested way of enhancing security on any site, be it an office building, school, public building or a residential home. By allowing you to quickly recognize and identify visitors, door entry systems add an extra layer of security and give both staff and property owners reassurance that only authorized persons are entering the building. 

As one of the leading UK security manufacturers, Paxton provides high-level door entry systems that can be installed with numerous features and integrations to heighten security levels and make life easier for whoever is managing the system on-site.  

Read this short blog on Paxton door entry solutions to find out more about the incredible door entry systems that are available in today’s market, all of which can be installed and configured by the trustworthy security experts at Eclipse (IP).  


Door entry systems: What are they and how do they work? 

A door entry system’s primary purpose is to control access to and from a building or restricted zone. If a visitor wishes to gain access to your area, they will first need to press a buzzer or call button to request access. The property owner or relevant security personnel will be able to quickly recognize the visitor, either through a voice call or through video, depending on the door entry system that has been installed. They can they either grant access or keep the door locked.  

The most basic example of a door entry system is a buzzer system in a multi-tenant residential area; however, door entry systems can be far more advanced than this if needed by integrating network access control, CCTV systems, touch ID or token systems.  

When it comes to Paxton door entry systems, there are three main components that make up the system: 

  • External panel 
  • Door control unit 
  • Internal monitor.

Paxton access control systems


Combining door entry systems of access control  

Door entry systems are often known as access control systems; however, we see access control as a more encompassing system that covers the full site security.  

If you feel like a single door entry system is too basic for your needs you could easily scale the system and combine it with Paxton’s advanced access control options to create a robust security system that could easily handle security for sites with 1000+ employees.  

Networked access control systems allow site owners to manage multiple entry points all from one convenient location. These systems can be used in a number of ways, such as: 

  • Keypad systems  
  • Token systems 
  • Video or audio entry  

The benefits of a full access control system installed across a large site are: 

  • Easily create multiple levels of security so that certain areas are restricted to high-level access, whereas other areas are available for all employees 
  • Keep full online records of comings and goings on your site 
  • Easily schedule specific access times and dates 
  • Simple to make quick changes and updates should employees leave or new personnel start 
  • With a token system you can track the movements of individual employees, leading to a better understanding of employee lateness and overall site time keeping 
  • Integrate CCTY systems for better overall security  
  • Manage your security systems remotely
