Residential Telephone Entry System
The Model RE-1N Residential Telephone Entry System is designed for
residential or light commercial access control applications. The
speakerphone, keypad, radio receiver, and optional video camera are
housed in a rugged enclosure that can be mounted to a pedestal or bolted
directly to a wall. The diecast keypad keys have bright, easy-to-read
graphics and are lit with an overhead light. The two operation buttons;
CALL and HELP, are machined for heavy-duty reliability.
Arriving visitors will approach the unit and place a call to the
residence by pressing the CALL button. The RE-1N will acquire the
residence's local telephone line and generate distinctive rings to the
house telephones. The resident, knowing that the distinctive ring is
originating from the access area, can answer any house telephone and
converse with the visitor. If the resident decides to grant access to
the visitor, they can activate either output relay in the RE-1N by
pressing a key on the telephone's keypad. If the resident decides not to
grant access, hanging up or pressing a key will disconnect the
If the resident is using the telephone at the time a visitor calls, the
RE-1N will sound beeps on the telephone line to announce that a visitor
is calling. The resident can press a key on the telephone to place the
outside caller on hold and communicate with the visitor. After granting
or denying access to the visitor, the outside caller will be
re-connected to the resident.
call forwarding allows the RE-1N to dial any selected telephone number
when a visitor presses the CALL button. For example, with call
forwarding enabled, the RE-1N could dial a cell phone to contact the
resident while outside or away from the residence. The resident will be
able to communicate with the visitor and grant or deny access from the
installations where multiple residences exist inside the same controlled
opening (such as a guest house or granny flat) three alternate calling
numbers can be programmed. The alternate numbers can be called by
entering a short code at the keypad.
resident can issue control commands from the local telephones without a
call from a visitor. By dialing a specific series of digits, the
resident can control either of the two relays. The resident an also

to 100 entry codes, from 1 to 6 digits in length, can be programmed.
Each entry code can activate either, or both, of the relay outputs.
Linear’s Model AM-KP keypad can be used as a secondary remote keypad for
Up to 24 sets of block coded MegaCode® transmitters (up to 100
transmitters total) can be used to gain access through the RE-1N's
built-in radio receiver. Each transmitter can be individually suspended
or re-activated. Four facility codes can be programmed to identify each
block of transmitters. Programming of individual (non-block coded)
transmitters is not supported by the RE-1N.
The RE-1N contains an internal clock and calendar. Seven programmable
time zones allow setting time periods to schedule system functions. Each
time zone can be active or inactive on certain days. Keypad entry
codes, wireless transmitters, automatic access control, call forwarding,
and the Do Not Disturb feature can each be set to only be active during
a specific time zone period. Up to ten holiday days can be programmed.
Each of the seven time zones can be set to be active or inactive during a
The SENSE/INHIBIT input
can be used two ways. If programmed for door sense, a switch on the
door detects forced entry or door ajar situations. If programmed for
inhibit, the input can be wired to a service switch or automatic timer
that will disable the Relay #1 when required.
OPEN REQUEST input can be wired to an exit loop detector or exit photo
beam to allow automatic exit activation. An emergency access keyswitch
can be mounted in the RE-1 case to allow keyed entry for authorized
feature allows the option of preventing the use of the same code or the
same transmitter again before the programmed time elapses. The keypad
lockout feature discourages tampering by disabling the keypad for three
minutes after a programmable number of incorrect entry codes has been
entered at the keypad.
An access log of up
to 450 events is stored in the unit's memory. System activity is logged
as it occurs with the date and time of the event. The access log data
can be retrieved locally or remotely with a computer through the RE-1N's
Local & Remote Programming:
system's built-in programming software can be accessed on-site or
off-site using a computer with any Internet browser. The software's
graphic display of each of the programming step makes programming easy.
Without a computer, the RE-1N can be programmed with its main keypad,
from any local telephone connected to the same line, or by calling from
any remote telephone.
The EEPROM memory retains all entry codes, transmitter information, and programming, even without power.
Linear's Model MGT safety edge transmitter is compatible with the
RE-1N. This MGT detects and transmits obstacle events to the RE-1N
receiver. Obstacle signals from an MGT transmitter will activate Relay
Relay #2 can be programmed for alarm shunt to bypass an alarm loop during entry, or alarm trigger to cause an alarm during forced entry. Five other activation options are available for Relay #2.
