Setting access rights

Depending on the solution you pick, access permissions can be managed remotely from a smart device or browser, from a PC or locally at each door. Paxton solutions can help you manage your site with a range of access permissions.

  • New user registration
  • Multiple user groups
  • Emergency lockdown
  • Door entry

Automated security settings

Automation enables you to run your building efficiently, gaining more from your system than just a security solution.

  • Auto expiration dates – indicate the time period that a user’s access is valid.
  • Roll call – set your system to generate an automatic roll call report when the fire alarm goes off.
  • Energy-saving readers – help keep costs down by switching off lights, air conditioning & electrical equipment when the room is empty or school's closed.

Paxton & InVentry Integration Overview

InVentry's integration with Paxton means that businesses can populate their Paxton system and users directly through InVentry. Meanwhile, schools with an MIS are only required to enter information once for it to be automatically added to both systems.

This not only simplifies the new user process for your admin staff but also reduces workload when removing them. Their Paxton access will be instantly disabled after their data's deleted from InVentry.

The integration of Paxton and InVentry also enables you to trigger door releases via an InVentry card reader with a single swipe, and you can assign temporary door access cards to visitors or those pre-booked on InVentry.

Access Invitations

Access Invitations are an exciting newly released InVentry feature for Paxton integrations. This allows customers to pre-book visitors through the InVentry system as normal, however, the new Access Invitation also includes a link to open the site’s Paxton door or barrier upon arrival. You can also set timing restrictions on each invitation in-line with when a visitor's due to arrive and leave; to further ensure your site's security!

  • Sign into InVentry via your Paxton reader
  • Trigger door releases via an InVentry card reader
  • Populate your Paxton system directly through InVentry
  • Assign temporary door access cards to pre-booked visitors
  • Automatically disable Paxton access when a user is disabled or removed from InVentry
