What Sets the Linear® Entry Pro Access Control System Apart?

The EntryPro telephone entry and access system is a part of the Linear® commercial access control line. The EntryPro series offers three models to meet the secure access needs of gated and multi-tenant residential communities: our 7-inch touchscreen model and two 4.3-inch display models. We’ve outlined below the many features and benefits that make our latest EntryPro telephone entry systems a win-win for both end-users and dealers in any commercial installation.

Dealer Benefits

Some key elements that sets the new Linear EntryPro Telephone Entry apart are, that it is both a telephone entry system and a feature-rich expandable access control system all in one. Incorporating the leading features of our commercial access control system within the EntryPro allows to be utilized in a wider range of applications. This separates it from many competing Telephone Entry systems which either connect to an existing access control or be left as a standalone separately managed disparate system. The EntryPro provides flexible, affordable options, with unparalleled performance and expandability. Your commercial customers will be thrilled to have a LAN/WAN browser-based multi-door access control and telephone entry in an all-in-one solution. With cutting-edge hardware and three different models to manage single or multi-door buildings, the possibilities are endless for commercial access control dealers.
