Wireless Indoor Asset Protection Sensor (5870API) Dealer Benefits of Using Asset Protection

What is Asset Protection?

Asset protection is a focused security solution to protect specific tangible assets. Usually these assets are things that people consider valuable, have a probability of theft or should not be tampered with.

What is the 5870API?

Honeywell’s 5870API is a wireless asset protection sensor designed to guard against burglary and theft. It affixes to any valuable requiring protection within a home or business, including paintings, flat screen TVs and other electronics, family heirlooms, office equipment and more. The 5870API is an ideal solution for early warning notification or alarm verification.

How does the 5870API Work?

The 5870API uses patented Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) Accelerometer technology, which senses acceleration in the X and Y axis. When affixed to the protected asset, the device will trigger a “detect” if an attempt is made to move or disturb the asset. The 5870API is intended for use with Honeywell alarm systems that support 5800 Series wireless devices. The transmitter is fully supervised and can send alarm, tamper, trouble and low battery conditions to the alarm control panel.

While the alarm industry has historically introduced solutions for burglary prevention, asset protection is the first solution for theft prevention that enhances the current burglary protection in place. This one device now adds value to the entire system and protects against burglary and—more importantly—theft!

Peace of Mind (“my stuff is protected”)

In a recent survey of consumers it was found that a top reason for owning/purchasing a home security system was that customers were concerned with protecting their possessions. The 5870API offers an additional layer of protection which can be programmed to always be “on” even when the panel is disarmed. It is a great way for people to protect their “stuff.”

New Opportunities

Wireless Indoor Asset Protection Sensor (5870API)
This product is exciting because it breaks down barriers and allows you to tackle new markets and attract new customers. By selling the concept of motionbased asset protection, you can offer your customers protection of their valuables in a way no traditional security system has done before.

Problem Solver

Until now, many dealers walked away from protecting assets within a home or business due to the extensive material cost and labor associated with it. The 5870API is the ideal solution for those difficult-to-wire jobs that require protection or where a current solution does not exist today.

Quick and Easy Installation

Simply pull the battery tab to enroll the transmitter, peel the adhesive backing tape and secure the 5870API to the asset. It’s that easy. Two attractive housings in your choice of white or dark gray are available to blend with the asset and décor.

Verification is a Growing Need

Many areas of the country/world are now requiring alarm verification before the authorities are sent. Asset protection can fulfill the requirement of two events or two sensors being activated, reducing false dispatches and saving fines for your customer.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Why Should I Offer Asset Protection?
Federal Bureau of Investigation
• Burglary is defined as: The offender has no legal right to be in the house. • Theft is defined as: The offender has a legal right to be in the house (such as a housekeeper, delivery person or guest). • One in ten homes experience theft each year Source: FBI website www.FBI.org FBI statistics were for 2007 Burglary occurs when someone breaks into your house when you are not home. Theft occurs when someone you invite into your home such as a housekeeper, delivery person or contractor steals (or attempts to steal) something. Asset protection is the first solution for theft prevention and also enhances the current burglary protection you offer.

What Kinds of Assets Can I Protect?
You can protect virtually anything that your customer values that should not move from its location or be tampered with. Many people have a connection with their possessions that far exceeds the insurance replacement value. They want to protect priceless items such as coin or stamp collections or family heirlooms that have been handed down from generation to generation.

Dealers have identified a number of assets that they have been asked to protect but have not had an easy solution; such as a sculpture or painting in a museum or art gallery. These are just a few of the many assets in the commercial market that make for excellent sales potential.

How Does it Work?
The 5870API uses Honeywell’s Patented MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) accelerometer technology. MEMS is the integration of mechanical elements, such as levers and actuators, and electronics on a common silicon chip. The chip we incorporate in the 5870API uses an accelerometer to detect movement. The accelerometer is the foundation of the asset sensor and can detect movement in both the X and Y axis. When the 5870API is affixed to the protected asset, the device will trigger a “detect” if an attempt is made to move or disturb the asset.

Where Should it Be Mounted?
The device should be mounted in an inconspicuous place on the asset away from public view. Mount the sensor on a stable area on the asset away from vibration. Try to avoid mounting near speakers, fans or motors.

Is it Easy to Install/Enroll?
Simply pull the battery tab to enroll the transmitter, peel the adhesive backing tape and secure the 5870API to the asset in the desired location. Because the mode of operation is controlled by the loop that is enrolled you can remotely change the level of security (via the downloader) if the security needs change.

Can it Be Used on Existing Wireless Installs?
Yes. The 5870API is a great opportunity to upsell to existing customers and should be offered on new installs as well.

What Mode of Operation Should I Use?
The mode of operation that is selected (loop) is based on the asset the sensor is affixed to and the level of security that is desired. In most cases Standard Security Mode (Loop 2) should be selected.
