Favorite Request-to-Exit (RTE) Manufacturers 2018

By: Brian Rhodes, Published on Sep 19, 2018

Request To Exit devices like motion sensors and lock releasing push-buttons are a part of almost every access install, but who makes the equipment integrators most prefer? Big brands like (alphabetically) Assa, Bosch, Honeywell and Tyco are common choices but who is the favorite?

RTE devices address the problem of exiting since The Codes Behind Access Control often mandate egress with 'no special effort' or additional steps like scanning badges. To maintain compliance, devices like RTE REX (motion sensors), 'Push to Exit' push-buttons, glassbreak sensors, and even pressure-sensitive pads are used to automatically drop power to maglocks and electronic latches, strikes, and bolts when users approach exit doors from the inside.

148 integrators told us who their favorite RTE manufacturer was and why. We detail the top 5 finishers and share dozens of integrator comments on why they chose what they did.
