Islington on the Green - Net2 Entry provides simple access control for central London apartments.

“Paxton’s Net2 Entry system is a real plug-and-play solution, which we feel is its biggest selling point. It’s so simple to install, and the ease of operation made it the best choice for Islington on the Green.”

Neil Matthews, Fire and Security Systems Manager - MAS Systems

Islington on the Green is a residential complex consisting of 70 modern, high specification apartments. Based in the heart of Islington, these properties boast all the benefits of an unbeatable central Islington location, whilst maintaining the security of a private development with concierge.

 

Requirement

Islington on the Green required an update to their existing access control solution, that had ceased to function. They also required an improved access management system that would be simple to use, and could enable the concierge and residents to grant access to visitors from the Reception, and their individual apartments, respectively.

The General Manager of Islington on the Green, Ashley Proctor, approached MAS Systems to specify a new system, having previously worked with the company on a large hospitality establishment.

MAS Systems, based in East Sussex, specialise in electrical, security, CCTV and fire alarm installations within London and the South East of England. Neil Matthews, Fire and Security Systems Manager, recommended Paxton’s Net2 Entry system, combined with the Net2 software, to meet his clients’ requirements.

Solution

Net2 is a user friendly and flexible networked access control system, designed to make the management of any site straightforward. Neil says: “I’ve worked with Paxton products for more years than I can count, I know Net2 inside and out. Their technical support is always great, which is why I thought Paxton’s Net2 range would offer the ideal solution.”

The new Net2 system electronically controls the main entrance to the building, as well as the private entrances to each of the 70 apartments. With the Net2 Entry monitors, residents can permit access to visitors following visual or audio verification. The concierge can easily program new access tokens for residents on site, and cancel them from the system should any be lost or stolen, significantly increasing the level of security compared to a standard lock and key system.

Net2 system can be administered from one central PC, with external IT management able to monitor and maintain the system remotely via the network.

Result

The Net2 system, with Net2 Entry, has provided Islington on the Green with a secure access control solution, that gives their residents the ability to grant, or deny, access to visitors, and gain access themselves with a simple token.

Ashley Proctor, General Manager, says: “The software is really easy to use, the Net2 Entry system is simple, and it does what we need it to: enabling the concierge to visually verify visitors, and residents to buzz people into the building.”

With potential plans to refit the adjacent Islington on the Green Theatre, the Net2 system also provides the opportunity to expand and secure the new site, included in the same development complex, from the same centrally managed system.
