Dealers’ Go-To Solution 

The Linear AE-100 telephone entry system is the last tele-entry product out of the fan-favorite AE series mold. The AE series became well-known throughout the industry because it meets the needs that the commercial access market demands. This includes delivering an intuitive, easy-to-use system for consumers packed with proven technology and programming capabilities that make for a smooth and hassle-free installation for professionals. Maintaining the system is a simple task as well; professional installers and dealers have the ability to program the directory and entry codes locally using the keypad or remotely with a touch tone telephone.

One of the many benefits dealers continue to experience from this system is that it can be used in any commercial installation. Some examples include, utilizing the system in a lobby of a multi-dwelling unit (MDU) such as an apartment complex or outside of an office building or gated community.
