Honeywell 5800MINI vs Honeywell 5819S
The Honeywell 5800MINI and the Honeywell 5819S are both wireless sensors that can be used as a door and window contact. However, the 5819S can also be used as a wireless transmitter or as a shock sensor. The 5800MINI is smaller, and it includes a magnet for use as an alarm contact.
The 5800MINI and the 5819S are both part of Honeywell's 5800 Series. This means that they can be used with any Honeywell or 2GIG Security System. Both devices can function as a door and window contact. To do this, a magnet will need to be used with the sensor. The 5800MINI already comes with a magnet. But a magnet will need to be purchased separately for the 5819S. The magnet to use with the 5819S is the Honeywell 5899.
Most people who purchase a 5819S don't do so for use as a door and window contact. Instead, the device is most commonly used as a shock sensor. This type of device is installed directly on a glass surface, such as a window or casing. If the glass is broken, the corresponding shockwaves will cause the device to activate so that an alarm can be triggered. This is different from a standard glass break, which listens for the sound of breaking glass. The 5819S can also be used as a wireless transmitter so that a hardwired sensor can communicate with a wireless system. None of these features are possible with a 5800MINI. Additionally, the 5800MINI is smaller and more compact than the 5819S.
The function of the 5819S is determined by the loop number that is programmed with the panel. The first loop is for use as a shock sensor. The second loop is for use as a door and window contact. Finally, the third loop allows the device to function as a wireless transmitter. A 5819S sensor can be programmed with a panel multiple times so that each function can be used with the system. On the other hand, the 5800MINI can only be programmed with a system as a contact.
