Why Choose Landline?
The Telguard Analogue door entry system was our first telephone based solution, launched back in 1992. Having obtained full BABT approval in this year, our units were the first to be authorised for official connection into BT's exchanges.
The Landline version of our system requires a dedicated analogue telephone line connected into the panel. This allows the system to make a telephone call through to either a landline or mobile phone number when the relevant property button is pressed. You then simply answer the call as normal, speak to the visitor, then allow access by pressing a command on your telephone keypad. Easy! This means you can allow access to your property from anywhere in the world, without the visitor knowing you're not at home.
From an installation perspective, Landline technology makes remote entrances far more accessible, as cable restrictions are virtually eradicated. Power, telephone line and a connection to the operating equipment is all that's needed to have a complete access control solution.
Our Landline units also have the ability to plug into a PBX/PABX system. Providing you have an analogue extension of the phone system, with the ability to generate DTMF tones, then the Telguard can sit as an extension. This means there are no additional running costs or call charges, unless the Telguard rings an external number. If your system is digital, you can request an ATA (analogue terminal adaptor) from the phone system provider which can convert the line to analogue (please check with your provider for compatibility).
Landline technology provides reliability and flexibility, which is synonymous with the Telguard brand. This simple method of communication is still a popular choice of platform in our industry today.
