Configure REX button to be able to permanently lock or unlock a door

Configure REX button to be able to permanently lock or unlock a door

Issue

Configure REX button to be able to permanently lock or unlock a door if pressed for a set amount of seconds.

Product Line

Environment

Security Expert Server

Cause

REX button does a momentary unlock then relatches the door. Would like to unlock or lock doors using the REX as determining factors are too dynamic to use a schedule.
