Honeywell 5811 vs 5800RPS
The Honeywell 5811 is a surface mount wireless 1 zone door window transmitter. The 5811 is a very thin transmitter. At ¼” (full dimensions are 2-1/8" x 1-3/16"x 1/4") the 5811 basically blends right into the window frame or door frame which makes it a very popular choice. The 5811 is also ideal for casement and double hung windows.
The Honeywell 5800RPS is a recessed, wireless 1 zone roller plunger transmitter. With dimensions of 1" L x 3/4" D and 8" antenna, once installed the 5800RPS is almost unnoticeable. The 5800RPS is ideal for entry doors and is recessed in the hinged side of a wood or metal door frame. Installing the 5800RPS requires a user to drill a hole that is ¾” diameter and 1 ¼” deep. The antenna needs a ¼” hole, 8” and needs to be straight and fully extended for the best RF transmitting range.
The 5811 has 1 loop, normally closed built in reed switch.
The 5800RPS uses a plunger instead of a reed switch.
Both the 5811 and 5800RPS are supervised and have RF transmitting supervision and will send in a check in signal every 70-90 minutes.
The 5811 has tamper detection and will send a signal to the control panel if the case is open. Since the 5800RPS is recessed and does not have a cover, it does not have tamper detection. The 5811 also has low battery detection.
The 5811 transmitter will operate in temperatures ranging from 32 degrees F - 120 degrees F.
The 5800RPS transmitter will operate in temperatures ranging from 10 degrees F - 120 degrees F. Neither the 5811 or the 5800RPS are weatherproof.
The 5811 operates on one 3V lithium coin cell battery (CR2032) with a battery life of up to 4 years.
The 5800RPS operates on one 3V lithium coin cell battery (CR1620) with a battery life of up to 7 years.
Weather your choice is the 5811 surface mount transmitter or the 5800RPS recessed plunger transmitter, both are an excellent choice in protection.
