If you're in the market for a new wireless repeater for your Honeywell System, you might want to consider our certified refurbished Honeywell 5800RP. Our refurbished model will work just as well as a brand-new Honeywell 5800RP Wireless Repeater, but it is available at a lower price.
Our certified refurbished products are shipped directly to the Alarm Grid headquarters from the manufacturer. The equipment is thoroughly cleaned, and any defects are restored to ensure that the product operates like brand-new. We guarantee that any certified refurbished product from us will work just as well as the brand-new equivalent. For more information on our certified refurbished offerings, please check out this prior blog post.
If you aren't familiar with the Honeywell 5800RP, it is a wireless repeater that works with Honeywell 5800 Sensors. Normally, these sensors only have a maximum range of 200 nominal feet. But the 5800RP will take the signals sent out from these sensors and send them out a second time. This will increase the maximum possible wireless range to 400 nominal feet.
Wireless repeaters like the Honeywell 5800RP are great for situations where you need a little bit of extra range for your sensors to communicate properly. They can also help your sensors overcome obstacles that may disrupt communication, such as thick walls and large metal appliances. For best results, try playing the 5800RP in a location directly in-between the panel and the sensor.
The Honeywell 5800RP is a plug-and-play device, and you do not need to enroll it with the panel for it to work. It will begin repeating 345 MHz signals from Honeywell 5800 Series Sensors as soon as it is powered on. However, you can still enroll it with your panel for supervision purposes. This will require one wireless zone on your panel.
Please note that the Honeywell 5800RP does not include a transformer for providing power. This applies to both the brand-new model and our certified refurbished offering. The transformer you will want to purchase separately is called the Honeywell 300-07753 AC Transformer. You will also need a wire to connect the transformer. We recommend using the Honeywell LT-Cable for this job. The Honeywell K0257 Backup Battery does come included with the 5800RP, and that should last about three (3) to five (5) years with typical usage.
Also note that the Honeywell 5800RP can only repeat 345 MHz signal from Honeywell 5800 Sensors. It cannot repeat 345 MHz signals from 2GIG 345 MHz Sensors. Alarm Grid offers the 2GIG Repeater, which can repeat signals from both Honeywell 5800 Sensors and 2GIG 345 MHz Sensors. But only the Honeywell 5800RP can repeat signals from bi-directional Honeywell 5800 Series devices. These include the Honeywell 5828 Keypad and the Honeywell 5800WAVE Siren.
Finally, it is not possible to use multiple Honeywell 5800RP units to repeat signals an indefinite number of times. Each Honeywell 5800 Series Sensor can have its signal repeated only once. But you can have two distinct 5800RP modules on separate sides of your panel to repeat signals coming from both directions. Keep this in mind if you intend on using the Honeywell 5800RP.
