Honeywell 5811 vs 5819

The Honeywell 5811 is a supervised, surface mount wireless single zone door window transmitter. Loop 1, normally closed built-in reed switch. Whereas the 5819 is a supervised, surface mount wireless three zone shock processor and transmitter. Loop 1 is normally closed for external shock sensor, loop 2 had a built-in reed switch and loop 3 is normally closed contacts. The 5819 connects to inertia type shock detectors which are mounted externally to transmitter case and connects to TB1, loop 1.

The 5811 is a very popular wireless sensor due to it’s sleek design and dimensions of 2-⅛”W x 1-3/16”H x ¼”D. The 5819 has dimensions of 4.8”W x 1.5”H x 1”D.

The 5811 has an RF transmitting range of 150 feet and the 5819 has an RF transmitting range of 200 feet.

Both the 5811 and the 5819 can operate in temperatures that range from 32 degrees F to 120 degrees F.

Both transmitters have tamper protection and will send a tamper signal to the control panel when the cover is removed, It will send loop 4.

The magnet spacing gap on the 5811 is 0.75" max and for the 5819 is .5" max.

Both the 5811 and 5819 transmitters will send a check in signal every 70 to 90 minutes for RF supervision and if the transmitters detect a low battery, it will send the low battery signal the next time it is sends any other signal.

The 5811 operates on one 3V lithium coin cell battery (CR2032) and has a battery life expectancy up to four years.

The 5819 operates on one 3V, 1300mAH lithium battery only (CR123A) and has a battery life expectancy of 3 - 5 years. If shock loop is not being used then it must be strapped out, if not it will extremely shorten battery life.
