Overriding the timeout interval on specific terminals

We have our iSeries interactive job time-out interval set low for security purposes. However, the interval is too low for our shop floor data collection terminals. How can we override the time-out interval on a terminal by terminal basis?
To override, or make the time-out different for different terminals, you'll have to write a program that monitors the message queue specified in the QINACTMSGQ system value and take the appropriate action based on the job that sent the message. If you don't want to write this yourself, there are vendor solutions that provide this function.
