This is an odd translation. "Is she at home?", perhaps?

for "is she in?" I would translate "elle est là ?"

But what that does this sentence mean? That she is inside her house?

on the phone, you may ask to talk to someone and inquire whether that person is present there, ie at home, in the building, at the office, etc. same thing if you knock on the door, someone opens and you ask if she is present. the answer may be no, she is out at the moment".
