Telephone Entry System

Tele Entry is a short for telephone entry. Tele entry system is part of access control system which uses a dedicated phone line and allows a resident in a gated community to open the gate using a a personal code, or allowing opening the gates remotely for visitors at the gate, by using a land line phone or a cell phone.

The Telephone entry system includes a telephone system (inside the Tele-Entry case), connected to a landline. A visitor can select a resident from the Tele Entry display screen and initiate a telephone call to the selected resident. The selected resident may answer the phone, press a digit (typically 9) and cause the gate to open.


Tele-Entry System

A Telephone-Entry system may also include a card reader allowing a resident to place his proximity fob or card next to the reader and open the gate.

In addition, a Tele Entry system normally comes with a keypad, allowing a resident or a visitor to punch a code and open the gate.

A more sophisticated system may also have a receiver allowing residents with dedicated transmitters to open the gate remotely.

A Tele- Entry system is only one component of a complete access control system. If you would like to view more access control terms, please visit our Access Control Glossary page.
