Honeywell 5809FXT - Installation Instructions
5809FXT Wireless Heat Detector – Installation Instructions
The Honeywell 5809 Heat Detector is a wireless device used with
alarm systems that support Honeywell’s 5800 series devices.
The fixed temperature sensor will signal an alarm when the ambient
temperature rises above 135
The 5809 will be permanently damaged if stored,
shipped, or installed in environments where the temperature exceeds
C). If the metal disc is detached, the detector has
C) and must be replaced.
Heat detectors should be used for property protection. Reliance
should not be placed solely on heat detectors for life safety. When
life safety is involved, smoke detectors MUST also be used.
Detectors MUST NOT be painted.
It is not recommended to install at a site where the ambient
temperature exceeds 100
Unit is for dry, indoor use only.
If the fixed temperature sensor activates, the detector must be
When the battery voltage drops below a threshold, a low battery signal is
sent to the control panel.
The 5809 includes a tamper switch. If removed from its mounting base, a
trouble signal is sent to the control panel.
Detectors should never be relocated without the advice or assistance of
the alarm service company.
Replace the battery when the system reports a low battery condition.

Install the Battery
1. If the 5809 is already mounted, remove the detector assembly by
twisting counter-clockwise and withdraw it from the mounting base.
DO NOT touch the metal disc.
2. Remove the old battery and wait 30 seconds.
3. Install or replace battery with a Duracell DL123, DL123A, or
Program the Detector
The detector’s serial number is located on the product carton,
and inside the detector. This number must be enrolled in the control
panel. Refer to the control panel’s installation guide for details.
1. Remove the detector assembly by twisting counter-clockwise and
withdraw it from the mounting base. DO NOT touch the metal disc.
2. Install the battery (if not already installed).
3. Enter the control panel’s programming mode. When programming
this device, program the following:
Input Type = 3 (Supervised RF)
Loop number = 1
4. To enable the control panel to capture the detector’s serial number,
when prompted force the detector to transmit by momentarily
depressing the RF TEST button. Alternately, you can manually enter
the detector’s serial number.
5. Test the detector after enrolling into the system. Refer to the Testing
Select a Location and Mount the Detector
SELECT A LOCATION
Refer to the “Specifications” topic for maximum spacing requirements.
Avoid mounting the detector near heat generating devices (e.g.,
ovens, heat vents, furnaces, boilers).
Wall Mounting – Mount the detector 4” to 6” from the ceiling.
Ceiling Mounting – Mount the detector at least 4” from any wall.
Ensure the ceiling temperature will not exceed 100
Verify a good RF transmission path from the selected mounting
location before mounting. Test the detector first before mounting.
Testing The Detector
This test should be performed to verify a good RF transmission path
before mounting the detector at the intended location, and again after
the installation is complete.
The heat sensor is intended for a one time use. If the
metal disc on the detector detaches, the detector must be replaced.
1. Activate the control panel’s test mode.
2. Press and release the RF TEST button on the sensor’s PC board.
3. Verify the system’s keypads beep and the detector’s serial number is
4. Exit the control panel’s test mode.
MOUNT THE DETECTOR
The detector’s mounting base has a variety of holes to accommodate
securing it to; a wall, ceiling, 4” junction box, or a 3–1/4” octagon box.
1. Use at least two mounting holes.
2. When securing to wallboard, in addition to the mounting holes, ensure
to also use a screw in the Anti-Twist mounting hole. This will prevent
the base plate from coming loose when untwisting the sensor.
3. Secure the sensor to the mounting base by aligning the sensor’s index
tabs to the index tab recesses on the mounting base. While pushing
in, turn the sensor clockwise until it locks. DO NOT touch the metal
TO THE INSTALLER
Regular maintenance and inspection (at least annually) by the installer and frequent testing by the user are vital to continuou
s satisfactory operation
of any alarm system.
The installer should assume the responsibility of developing and offering a regular maintenance program to the user as well as
acquainting the user
with the proper operation and limitations of the alarm system and its components parts. Recommendations must be included for a
of frequent testing (at least weekly) to ensure the system’s proper operation at all times.
FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION STATEMENT
The user shall not make any changes or modifications to the equipment unless authorized by the Installation Instructions or
User's Manual. Unauthorized changes or modifications could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.
FCC / IC STATEMENT
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules, and RSS 210 of IC. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference.
(2) This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
Cet appareil est conforme à la partie 15 des règles de la FCC & de RSS 210 des Industries Canada. Son fonctionnement est
soumis aux conditions suivantes: (1) Cet appareil ne doit pas causer d' interférences nuisibles. (2) Cet appareil doit accepter
toute interférence reçue y compris les interférences causant une réception indésirable.
For Limitations of the entire alarm system, refer to the control panel’s installation guide.
