Residential Telephone Entry (Nickel Finish; Linear RE-1-N)
Linear’s RE-1 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 die-cast keypad keys have bright, easy-toread
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-1 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-1 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 visitor’s call.
If the resident is using the telephone at the time a visitor calls, the
RE-1 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.
Programmable call forwarding allows the RE-1 to dial any selected
telephone number when a visitor presses the CALL button. For
example, with call forwarding enabled, the RE-1 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 remote telephone.
For installations where multiple residences exist inside the same
controlled opening (such as a guest house or granny fl at) three
alternate calling numbers can be programmed. The alternate
numbers can be called by entering a short code at the keypad.
The resident can issue control commands from the local telephones
without a call from a visitor. By dialing a specifi c series of digits, the
resident can control either of the two relays. The resident can also
initiate voice communications with the entry system.
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-1.
Up to 24 sets of block coded MegaCode® transmitters (up to
100 transmitters total) can be used to gain access through the
RE-1’s built-in radio receiver. Each transmitter can be individually
suspended or re-activated. One facility code can be programmed
to identify each block of transmitters. Programming of individual
(non-block coded) transmitters is not supported by the RE-1.
The RE-1 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 specifi c 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
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-1 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 one minute 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-1’s built-in modem.
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 steps make programming
easy. Without a computer, the RE-1 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-1 This MGT detects and transmits obstacle events to the RE-1
receiver. Obstacle signals from an MGT transmitter will activate
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. Four activation options are available for Relay #2.
A built-in voice synthesizer sounds voice prompts through the
speaker, local and remote telephones.
