Linear Debuts New 7” e3 Entry Access Control Solution at InfoComm 2018

Furthering its commitment to modernize telephone entry and access control for commercial businesses, Nortek Security & Control (NSC) today debuted the new Linear® 7” e3 Entry System to the AV market. Equipped with a large touchscreen and keypad, the new offering is now on display at InfoComm 2018 in the Las Vegas Convention Center in Booth #C2612. 

“The browser-based Linear e3 Entry System is designed for a new generation of customers and end-users who want modern telephone entry and cutting-edge physical access control systems for multi-dwelling/tenant buildings and gated communities,” John LaFond, VP of Integrated Systems for NSC said. “The new Linear 7” e3 Entry simplifies the end-user experience with a touch screen and full query keyboard, which minimize the number of steps. Installers save time with an easy-to-install solution that’s equipped with an intuitive installation wizard and one common database and programming interface to configure.”

Linear® e3’s new 7” weatherproof product features a larger touchscreen display with a self-adjusting sensor, making it easy-to-read both during the day and at night, as well as in rain, sleet and snow. The display is paired with a stainless-steel keypad featuring recessed illuminated blue keys, and a polycarbonate home key with white illuminated backlighting.

Equipped with a motion sensor, ambient light sensor, and optional HD IP camera, the new offering includes a built-in postal lock and 3-point locking mechanism for added security. For noise reduction and voice clarity, the 7” e3 Entry also features digital signal processing.

For added durability, the product’s new faceplate is engineered with Linear ArmorTech™ polycarbonate and stainless steel. Polycarbonate makes it light and easy to install for dealers, optimizing the RF transmission while also providing esthetically pleasing design and added durability against force and harsh weather elements.

“Access control systems are not always fully leveraging the technological innovations of today,” LaFond said. “The Linear access control solutions change the game with intuitive systems that modernize the experience for commercial end-users. Our goal at Nortek Security & Control is to exceed our customer’s expectations with products that defy the norm, and the new 7” e3 Entry is a great example.”
