Request to Exit (REX) is a setup used to grant free exit, meaning the user will not need to use a credential.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Your system REX ports will work in conjunction with your system motion sensors. These are different from Push to Exit buttons which are connected directly to the door for safety reasons.
REX Switch - Door Unlock Behavior
Access control systems have REX switches for each door. When this REX switch is activated, it suppresses the "door force alarm" and by default unlocks the doors for the pre-configured number seconds set by the system administrator.
In many cases, a motion sensor device is mounted on top of the door and attached to the system's REX. When a person come close enough to the door while leaving the space, the sensor will automatically trigger the REX to unlock the door.
In some cases you may want to control this default behavior. Perhaps you
don't want to unlock the door automatically but only suppress the "door force alarm." With Sequr, you can do this! Follow the steps below to manually control your system's REX behavior:
- Click on the 'Hardware' tab in your Sequr web portal. Find the door for which you would like to apply the rule and click the 'Edit' button.
2. Go to the REX section and uncheck the box.
3. Press the "Save" button to save the changes to your system.
REX - How to Adjust Your REX Seconds
You can also adjust the seconds for your system's REX behavior. When REX door unlock behavior in enabled, it will keep the door unlocked for the specified number of seconds. When it's disabled, it establishes the time allowed between REX and a manual door open without causing a forced door alarm.
