Access Control for a West Midlands School

Project Overview

Security has become increasingly vital in schools in order to protect students, staff and assets. A large two form entry primary school in the heart of Wednesbury in the West Midlands contracted Advanced AV to provide a reliable, scaleable and easy to use access control solution to meet their needs.

The solution needed to be centrally managed and control by the schools on-site site manager as well as being to provide audit trail reports to the schools senior leadership team (SLT)

Advanced AV met on-site with the schools site manager on a few occasions in order to get a real understanding of what they wanted to achieve in order for Advanced AV to provide them with the best and most cost effective solution.

Equipment Used

As the school wanted a centrally managed and networked solution Paxton’s Net 2 system met all the requirements and allowed for the system to be scaled up in the future with additional access doors to be added without affecting the main system or requiring any work to existing doors.

The Advanced AV team installed Paxton’s Net 2 system on a mix of double and single key doors around the site with Paxton’s Net 2 Pro software being utilised on the client’s existing on-site server.

Every door was also commissioned into the schools fire alarm system allowing the doors to be automatically released in the event of a fire alarm activation on-site.

Overall Paxton’s Net 2 system met all the schools requirements perfectly and provide a cost effective solution, so¬† important in the education sector.

    Jordan and Phil have done an amazing job on our schools access control system. From start to finish they were very professional and helpful, no question was stupid or too much for them. They left the job very neat and tidy, the overall work is outstanding. I had a small issue with not being able to program one of the doors correctly partly down to being tired and misreading the net 2 program, one quick call to Jordan and Phil and they talked me through it over the phone. Needless to say that these chaps will have all my door access control at the school site and my camera and alarm systems at my home to do. 100% recommended to anyone
