Features & Benefits

  • Centralised device management
    Update firmware in bulk and in a few clicks. It ensures optimal performance and security of devices. Plus you can see immediately if devices are all online and check their door states.
  • Logs and notifications
    Respond more effectively to designated events thanks to instant alerts by email or in the notification channel. Get the full picture with camera logs offering snapshots surrounding chosen events.
  • Multi-company sites
    Admins may control the whole site whilst managers may be granted set privileges in their own company. This makes 2N® Access Commander an ideal solution for buildings with several companies.
  • Free mobile credentials
    Mobile access control, powered by WaveKey, is fully integrated in the software. No separate reader programming tools, no need to use a 3rd party mobile credential gateway and best of all, no charge for credentials.
  • Attendance monitoring
    2N® Access Commander offers native attendance monitoring features. Track user attendance, view reports in the software and export records to PDF or CSV.
  • Visitor credential management
    Easily onboard visitors, granting time-limited access to the areas you choose. Issue credentials remotely for self-serve access and maintain an audit trail for compliance.
  • Highly open to integration
    A REST API offers endless integration possibilities. LDAP support and custom mappings streamline workflow with user directories. CSV sync provides low level integration with simpler systems.
  • Anti-passback support
    Tighten security and enforce access policy compliance with the Anti-passback function. Record or completely ban repeat entry where credentials are re-used by another user.

"For our client, the manufacturing company AMETIC GROUP Ltd., we deployed the 2N access unit readers and the 2N® Access Commander access control system to resolve employee access to restricted areas and provide assessment of attendance records."
"Attractive design, wide integration possibilities and a reputation as a leading IP intercom manufacturer were the decisive factors why we used 2N® IP Vario for a “smart home” apartment building complex. As the customer wanted a centrally managed system for access control, 2N® Access Commander was also implemented."
"For our significant customer, we looked for such access control system that would be easy to integrate with our SW solution through open API. 2N IP access control units combined with a central management using 2N® Access Commander absolutely fulfilled our expectation."

An Intelligent Access System from 2N Is Now Protecting a School Building
The school building in Prague-Troja is used by three institutions – an elementary school, a high-school and the local municipality offices. The building was using an outdated access system that began to malfunction and it was time for a change. The first requirement was to resolve access for all three institutions, enabling separated entry points and creating individual zones and restrictions related to the time of day.

„The 2N access system ensures quality protection for our school, yet the use and administration is simple. The new video intercoms are a great help, as well as registrations using RFID cards that each student or visitor has in their wallet.“

Access Control for Casino
Located in the heart of Riga, Latvia, a new casino grew up. In order to secure the casino, a reliable access control system had to be installed. It had to cover entrances and create security zones within the establishment. Tracking an attendance of employees, user-friendliness and IP background of the system were a must. As a result, an integrator and our partner DTG chose an access control from 2N.

„We like to work with 2N, because their products and solutions are reliable and the management software is easy to operate. The fact that 2N can be integrated into Milestone and works with AXIS, is a real advantage for clients who think about such solution.“
