Sean Kim, 2N - An Axis Company

According to Sean, the 2N product range includes SIP intercoms, IP access control, SIP audio, lift systems and GSM gateways. Many in the electronic security industry will recognise 2N’s bright orange 2N IP Safety intercom stations but Sean says there’s much more in the 2N product stable.

“We are the only company that has an IP69k and an IK10-rated intercom range and we have comprehensive integrations to VMS, SIP, IP phones, access control solutions and home automation systems,” Sean said.

According to Sean, a key element of 2N’s integration capability is the Open platform (ONVIF, SIP, HTTP command) non-proprietary solution and working closely to its wide range of vendor partners.

“These include Milestone, Genetec, Avigilon, Digifort and Exacqvision in the VMS market, while in the SIP IP phone market we work with Cisco, TIPT (Telstra IP Telephony, cloud-based), Avaya and Siemens” he said.

“When it comes to home automation, we work with Control4, Savant, Crestron, Leviton, while in the area of access control, we support any access controller with Wiegand output.”

Sean said he was delighted to be onboard with 2N and was looking forward to the challenges of assisting distributors expand the local business.

Axis acquired 2N on May 2016 – the full name of the company is 2N – An Axis Company – and direct distributors in Australia are Alloys, Anixter and Hills.

“2N has well-established sales channels through electricians and telecom installers, as well as lift manufacturers, which serve as a complement to Axis’ present global sales channels – at the same time 2N and its customers benefit from Axis’ strong market position and R&D resources,” said Peter Lindström, vice president new business at Axis Communications.
