Our History

Real Time Networks was founded in 1989 selling business timekeeping and key security products. Over the next 24 years it released a steady progression of new security products that incorporated the latest developments in electronic control and wireless sensing technologies.

Then in 2013, through a joint venture with a UK-based partner, it released a pair of real-time location management solutions for keys and personnel. The success of these products spurred the company to invest in developing further new integrated security solutions.


In 2016 development began on an integrated middleware platform with an accompanying management portal, mobile app, and smart access terminal. This would become RTNHub, the center of Real Time Networks’ forthcoming suite of solutions.

In 2018 the company officially rebranded itself as Real Time Networks to reflect the wider scope of its services and its vision for the future. It still sells reliable key control products, but now as part of an expanded portfolio of tightly-integrated security solutions that will drive business through the next generation.
