AE-2000: Commercial Telephone Entry System with Access Control

The AE-2000 has been replaced with the AE2000Plus.

The Model AE-2000 Commercial Telephone Entry System with Access Control is designed for use as a primary access control device for gated communities, parking garages, office buildings, apartments, dormitories, hotels/motels, commercial buildings and recreational facilities.

Housed in a locked, rugged stainless steel faced enclosure, the AE-2000 features a lighted keypad with bright, easy-to-read graphics, a large backlit display with programmable welcome message, a built-in microphone, speaker, and provision for an optional color CCTV camera. The cabinet is monitored with a magnetic tamper switch.

The four relay output channels can be programmed to control electric door strikes, magnetic locks, door & gate operators, or barrier gates.

The system utilizes hands-free, full duplex telephone communications between visitors and residents for granting access. Complete access control event logging, access time restriction, access location restriction, and administration functions are also available to manage the installation.

The AE-2000 is network ready. Multiple units can be interconnected on a 3-wire RS-485 network.

Two Wiegand inputs are available for connection of 26, 30, or 31-bit Wiegand devices (card readers, etc.). Three sets of PBUS inputs are available for connection to Linear’s line of remote accessories.

Installation and programming are made easy by Linear’s AccessBase2000 software.
