Detex Timed-Bypass Exit Alarm

The EAX-3500 by Detex of New Braunfels, Texas, combines the features of an exit alarm and a door-prop alarm in a wall-mounted unit that cannot be turned off. Its bypass mode allows only a pre-selected amount of time before the alarm sounds, according to the company.

Designed exclusively for restaurant kitchen doors, users can select the appropriate time for most kitchen door functions, ranging from five to 40 minutes, using the main store key rather than a key that fits only the alarm. The time is indicated on an LED light bar that indicates armed status and bypass time. At a glance, employees and delivery personnel can see how many minutes are remaining before the alarm sounds.

Powered by a low-voltage transformer, the 100dB alarm also has a rechargeable backup battery. With tamper-resistant housing and circuits, the EAX-3500 is built to prevent employees from defeating the alarm.
