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.

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 visitor's call.
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 resident.
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 remote telephone.
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 keypad.
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 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-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.
