Can a Honeywell 5800pir-res be mounted at 7 feet?
The Honeywell 5800PIR-RES is supposed to be mounted at a height between 7.5 feet and 8 feet. However, the real test for this sensor can be performed in the walk test mode. So, in a case where one wants to mount the sensor at only 7 feet, below the recommended height, hold the sensor at that height, and solicit some help to perform a walk test wherein you can see how much of the room gets coverage at that height.
See the following video for an example of how to mount it and the video just below that which outlines what a walk-test is and how to perform it.
