The Intruder Alarm & CCTV Specialists

Multiple Door

A standalone door access control system solution, which uses a separate control unit for higher security. The Switch2 control unit is housed on the inside or safe side of the door. The control unit is used in conjunction with a Paxton Access reader or keypad. This provides higher security than a compact system. Switch2 is the standalone solution for external and higher security internal doors.

Multiple Door

Mint Security Systems specialise in the installation and repair of door access control systems in the Nottingham, Sheffield, Chesterfield, Mansfield and Worksop areas. We are a NSI approved installer of access control systems for businesses so all our work meets the required standards with a certificate of compliance being issued on the completion of any work.


Switch2 systems are available with a choice of PROXIMITY or CARDLOCK (magstripe) readers or TOUCHLOCK keypads. Switch2 has a larger range of compatible readers than Compact and may also be used with a combined keypad/proximity reader. Access is gained by using a code or PIN with a keypad, or by presenting a valid token to readers. Simple token management using our token packs makes administration straightforward.

Switch2 systems can be fitted to one or many doors in a building. Additional doors may be added as required.

If you are choosing a standalone system but may want to upgrade to a PC based system in the future, Switch2 is the right choice. Only the control unit would need to be replaced. Readers and other hardware are compatible with both systems.
