Honeywell 5809SS Heat Detector Installation Instructions
Heat Detector –
The Honeywell 5809SS
Rise Heat Detector is a wireless
device used with alarm systems that support Honeywell’s 5800 series
combines a rate-
of-rise sensor and a fixed temperature
sensor in one device. The rate-
of-rise sensor detects a rapid rise in
temperature and signals an alarm if the rise is 15
C) or more
per minute. Fires typically cause a rapid rise in temperature in the
surrounding area. The fixed temperature sensor will signal an alarm
when the ambient temperature rises above 135

Heat detectors should be used for property protection. Reliance
should not be placed solely on heat detectors for life safety. When
life safety is i
nvolved, smoke detectors MUST also be used.
Detectors MUST NOT be painted.

Install the Battery
If the 5809SS
is already mounted, remove the detector assembly by
-clockwise and withdraw it from the mounting base.
OT touch the metal disc.
Remove the old battery and wait 30 seconds.
Install or replace battery with a Duracell DL123A, Panasonic CR123A
or HUIDERUI CR123A
: Constant exposure to high or low temperature or high humidity
may reduce battery life.
Program the Detector
The detector’s serial number is located inside the detector.
This number must be enrolled in the control panel. Refer to the
control panel’s installation guide for details.
Remove the detector assembly by twisting counter
withdraw it from the mounting base. DO NOT touch the metal disc.
Install the battery (if not already installed).
Enter the control panel’s programming mode. When programming
this device, program the following:
pe = 3 (Supervised RF)
Loop number = 1
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.
Test the detector after enrolling into the system. Refer to the

ounting 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 w
ill 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.

Activate the control panel’s test mode.
Press and release the RF TEST button on the sensor’s PC board.

Exit the control panel’s test mode.
MOUNT THE DETECTOR
The detector’s mounting base has a var
iety of holes to accommodate
securing it to; a wall, ceiling, 4” junction box, or a 3
–1/4” octagon box.
Use at least two mounting holes.
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.
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

with the proper operation and limitations of the alarm system and its components parts. Recommendations must be included for
a specific program
of frequent testing (at least weekly) to ensure the system’s proper operation at all times.
