AE-2: Telephone Entry System

Linear’s Telephone Entry combines telephone entry with full-featured access control, including keyless entry and panic functions. It is extremely easy to operate, making it ideal for a wide range of applications, including apartments, condominiums, dormitories, office buildings, and gated communities. It offers security, convenience, and handicapped access.

As a telephone entry system, it provides full duplex telephone communications through hands-free operation, and controls four openings via touch-tone telephone. It is supplied in a rugged, stainless steel, surface mount housing that will withstand years in the toughest environments.

Remarkable ease of operation is made possible by a highly visible keypad and large display, which presents visitors with a scrolling directory of up to 3,500 occupants (residents or employees) by name and code. When a code is entered on the keypad, a two-way voice link is established so the occupant can identify the visitor and grant access. Occupants gain entry using a special transmitter by keyless entry.

Numerous programming options allow the installer to customize Telephone Entry for virtually any application. System choices include selection of a one-to-four digit directory code, 40 different display messages, talk time duration, and extended talk time for select individuals.
