Guest Post: Three Steps to Make Money and Provide Value with NetAXS-123

IMG_4444I have been in the security industry for 30 years in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area. During my career, I have secured many schools and churches with a variety of technologies. Recently I worked with St. Eugene School in Fox Point, Wisconsin and offered them a solution that incorporated Honeywell’s NetAXS-123. It provided my client with a cost-effective way to address their unique security concerns. And, the process occurred in just three steps.

Step One: Identify the Business’ Needs
St. Eugene School serves 200 students from preschool through eighth grade and shares building space with a Catholic parish and a funeral home. The school’s current key access system was no longer delivering the level of security school officials felt they needed, and it lacked the granular level of control and management they wanted. The school needed a cost-effective way to improve the security of its building and wanted to “beef up” the door access control quickly and easily. 

Step Two: Present the Solution
With multiple activities taking place each day throughout each of the buildings, I recommended that the school use Honeywell’s NetAXS-123 web-based access control system.  This solution provides comprehensive security, enabling personnel to maintain a macro view of building security or drill down to individual doors. NetAXS-123 can be priced per door, and with the addition of Ethernet virtual loop (EVL) technology, which enables use of a Local Area Network (LAN) to loop the panels, it eliminates the need to install panel loop wiring, therefore reducing installation and support costs. 

Step Three: Install with Ease
Existing POE (power over Ethernet) switches and cabling can be used to connect and power the NetAXS panels. You can even power a door strike from the secure and reliable network power.  This modular approach allows for staged funding of the project without sacrificing efficiency of installation. Each new downstream panel is easily connected to the gateway panel for overall value and reliability.

    Love the 123 system started using it 2 years ago at Day care center and now using it at very large distributions center and a hospital in Wheeling W.Va. very easy to wire and set up
    and still use the Vista key system that works with high end vista panels great products simple easy interface
    and now with the loopless tech in the 123 a real winner for extremely large complex jobs .

    I like your approach to calibrating the correct customer with the right product. With the verstatility and state of the art features that the Honeywell NetAXS 123 offers it’s easy to see why you chose the Honeywell solution. NetAXS 123 is as easy to install as it is to use thanks to its user friendly design. Honeywell definitely stepped up it’s game on this system and made sure they are ahead of the competition. For jobs large or small, NetAXS 123 can adapt to offer a complete security solution.

    The Honeywell NetAXS 123 system is simple and works great for our needs. The low cost is what made our decision to go with the NetAXS 123, and it is worth every dollar we spent on it.
