|Cast Housing Means
Linears's residential telephone security system is the first to utilize cast
stainless steel for its inherent strength and striking appearance. This housing can take
hits from both Mother Nature and vandals and maintain its functional integrity and
good looks. As an alternative to this stainless housing with a polished finish, the RE-1
also comes in cast zinc with a powder coated nickel finish. White down lighting that is
both dramatic and practical is provided by an extremely long-life white LED source. The
use of surface mount technology (SMT) for all electronic components minimizes the effects
of interference from electro static discharge and protects against damage from lightning
Control Functions Beyond The Gate
Both systems have two built in general purpose relays for maximum system
functionality. One can be used for the control relay and the other for a myriad of
auxiliary control functions, including activation of safety edge reverse, external
lighting, or alarm shunting.
Megacode Inside. Telephone Entry With Wireless!
The RE-1 and RE-2 are the only telephone entry systems presently
available offering a built in wireless receiver as standard equipment. But this is not
just any wireless receiver. It's the MegaCode radio by Linear, the people who pioneered
radio frequency based security and access control. The famous MegaCode unit allows the use
of handheld, visor clip, and keychain transmitters (the industry's largest selection) to
achieve additional remote control over gates and garage door openers. Its code selection
from over one million factory-set possibilities that cannot be changed in the field
assures the highest protection against code theft and duplication.
Voice Prompts. User Friendly, Owner Friendly.
Synthesized voice capabilities are built into the system to provide
instructions for system users/owners, and to provide prompts for visitors, making the
system extremely easy to operate. The voice response system also provides confirmation
during remote programming via touch-tone telephone and local programming.
Versatile Telephone Integration.
The system can call up to three pre-programmed off-site numbers; it can generate
call waiting tones;
|and it can call forward via time
zone or resident command. For on-premises communications, the systems have a number of
valuable integration options. For a property with multiple entrances, guest houses, or
separate apartments, any of these locations can be called, because up to seven systems can
share the same telephone line and provide communication functions. In addition, a separate
INTERCOM mode allows connection to a PBX telephone system or a separate residential
intercom system via just a pair of wires.
Yet Simple Programming.
Ease of installation is very much a part of the system concept.
Providers can use a standard web browser to program the unit, thus eliminating the need
for special software. Programming can also be accomplished from the keypad or via a
touch-tone telephone. User programming is equally easy. For example, time zone programming
is provided to determine the time and/or day residents are active. Options are also
provided to lock out prank calls in the middle of the night, and to lock or open doors and
gates as needed.
Optional Video Camera. The Ultimate Caller ID.
Each system can be
field upgraded with a closed circuit television package that greatly
enhances the capability of the system. The RE-1 supports a Model
CCM-RE1 color camera, the RE-2 supports the Model CCM-2A
color camera. Each miniature camera installs neatly inside the system with a covered lens
window for camera protection and to provide an unobtrusive, non-intimidating appearance.
More Options For A Full-Featured System.
The unique cast housing of the system has provisions for the
integration of a Knox lock for applications requiring a means for emergency access onto
the property. This feature eliminates the need for an unsightly separate lock box, thus
preserving the RE-1and RE-2's outstanding aeshtetics.For residences with a second drive entrance, a service entrance, or additional vehicle
gates or walk gates, auxiliary keypads are available to provide entrance control. These
keypads, part of Linear's access control product line, are also valuable when there is a
need to have a keypad code to exit the property.
|Finally, driveway sensing can be
provided for with a loop detector to trigger the system to announce a vehicle at the gate
or to activate a relay to provide more light at the gate.
More Than Single-Dwelling Capacity.
The RE-1 and RE-2 are not limited to residential applications. With
their capacity for 100 entry codes and their ability to support up to 100 transmitters it
is ideal for sites such as employee parking lots and commercial parking garages. Premises
entry can be via keypad as well as transmitter. System activity may be monitored and
logged (450 event capacity) for retrieval via computer.
Control Access and communications from
any telephone, even off-site.
Granting access and controlling the gate operator
is as easy as dialiing the telephone. Both access relays can be individually contolled
using a TouchTone telephone. If the access gate needs to be opened, without a call from a
visitor, any telephone in the house can be used to open the gate by keying in a five digit
code pattern. The telephone codes can be used to latch or release either of the access
relays. If an unexpected visitor arrives, or is seen at the entry area with the system's
optional camera, a code from any on-site telephone can activate the system's 2-way audio
communication circuitry. This is an outstanding feature allowing remote monitoring and
speaking to the entry system area with the unit's high-gain microphone and speaker.
Off-site, anywhere in the world, a telephone can be used to control the access relays. The
system uses a programmable 6-digit password to authorize access for the remote
telephone control functions.
No one home? Forward the call for
forwarding feature allows a visitor to contact the resident at a programmed telephone
number instead of through the on-site telephones. The feature can be set to be active
during a selected time (set with the system's seven unique time zone schedules) or at all
times. The telephone number programmed can contain an extention number and an optional
time delay before dialing the extension. The call forwarding feature an also be set to
call the on-site telephones first, then if there's no answer, place a call to the
programmed forwarding telephone number. During the forwarded call, the access relays can
be controlled simply by using the telephone's keypad.
