Linear Residential Telephone Entry System | Linear RE-2SS |
||Linear RE-2 Nickel or RE-2 Stainless Steel
The Model RE-2N Residential Telephone Entry System is designed for residential or
light commercial access control applications. The speakerphone, keypad, radio
receiver, and optional color video camera are housed in a rugged enclosure that can
be mounted to a pedestal, bolted directly to a wall, or mounted recessed in a wall with
the optional trim ring. The die-cast keypad keys have bright, easy-to-read graphics
and are lit with overhead lights. The two operation buttons; CALL and HELP, are
machined for heavy-duty reliability.

Linear RE-2 Telephone Entry System
Linear Residential Telephone Entry systems are an unparalleled marriage of style and technology
— products that both make a strong statement and perform an essential function.
In terms of design, the RE-2 is unlike any other residential entry product on the market. Uniquely styled and available in a
choice of powder coated nickel or stainless steel
— they have all the characteristics of a high-end, architectural-grade, custom-designed system.
Simple, striking, and trend-setting, the RE-2 do more for home owners than provide a means for screening visitors and
granting access to their residence. They convey a subtle statement of affluence. They send a message to guests arriving
at the gate that they have come to a place of importance.
Functionally, the RE-2 brings the cutting edge of access technology to residential entry applications. They are the epitome
of access control merged with convenience, from their full complement of voice response capabilities to their built-in
receiver, auxiliary control functions, and optional closed-circuit television monitoring feature. Linear at the gate says it all.
And has it all.
Arriving visitors will approach the unit and place a call to the residence by pressing the CALL button. The RE-2N 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-2N 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-2N 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
Programmable call forwarding allows the RE-2N to dial any selected telephone number when a visitor presses the CALL
button. For example, with call forwarding enabled, the RE-2N 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
For 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
The 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 initiate voice communications with the entry
Up 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 the RE-2N.
Up to 24 sets of block coded MegaCode® transmitters (up to 100 transmitters total) can be used to gain access through
the RE-2N’s built-in radio receiver. Each transmitter can be individually suspended or re-activated. One facility codes can
be programmed to identify each block of transmitters. Programming of individual (non-block coded) transmitters is not
supported by the RE-2N.
The RE-2N 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 holiday.
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.
The 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-2N case to allow keyed entry for authorized personnel.
The "anti-passback" 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-2N’s built-in
Local & Remote Programming:
The 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-2N
can be programmed with its main keypad, from any local telephone connected to the same line, or by calling from any
The EEPROM memory retains all entry codes, transmitter information, and programming, even without power.
Linear Model MGT safety edge transmitter is compatible with the RE-2N. This MGT detects and transmits obstacle events
to the RE-2N receiver. Obstacle signals from an MGT transmitter will activate Relay #2.
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.
A built-in voice synthesizer sounds voice prompts through the speaker, local and remote telephones.
