What Are Best Practices For Automatic Door Openers And Access Control?

Hello everyone. I've been beating my head on the wall on this one for a while. I've got multiple doors that have access control on them and also automatic door openers. In most cases I have a second wire going from the door opener back to my S2 blade and it's tied to a secondary output which is triggered on positive badge read.

My issue is that staff wants the automatic door opener to work when they go OUT the door. Ok, so, I've created an event that when someone triggers the REX, the door unlocks and then opens.

There's 2 issues with this. First, it creates a done of activity in my access feed (not a big deal, but it's annoying).

Second, and more importantly. The doors in question are in hallways. So, if anyone walks down the hallway, there by triggering the REX, the door opens all by itself (which is pretty funny to watch people's reactions when it happens. Like there's a ghost).

I was considering changing to an electrified handset, but we do have people in wheelchairs that would have problems with that. My best idea is to move the REX further away from the door and then turn it backwards and aim it IN towards the door, so the angle is much more steep and people walking near it would be 'under' it's motion zone.

So, anyone out there have experience with auto openers and going OUT and how did you handle it?
