Honeywell 5815 vs 5819WHS

The Honeywell 5815 is a wireless 2 zone door window sensor. The 5815 provides 2 loops; loop 1 is wired terminals, loop 2 is the 2 built in reed switches which are in parallel with each other. One is located on one end, the other on the side and only 1 can be used. The 5815 is UL rated for residential burg and fire but is not UL listed for commercial burg and fire. The 5815 also has a CSFM (California State Fire Marshal) listing. The 5815 dimensions are 1-1/2"W x 3"H x 7/8"D. The RF transmitting range of the 5815 is 200 feet.

The Honeywell 5819WHS is a wireless 3 zone shock sensor, processor and transmitter. The sensor processes loop 1, built-in shock sensor, loop 2 an internal built in reed switch and loop 3, normally closed, an input for an external contact. The 5819WHS has a coverage of 10 -12 feet (5-6 foot radius). This can vary, depending on the type of window or other mounting surface to which the unit is mounted. The dimensions of the 5819WHS are 4.8"W x 1.5"H x 1"D. The 5819WHS also has an RF transmitting range of 200 feet. The 5819WHS has vibration detection by a built in Inertia shock sensor. The 5819WHS must be mounted on a vertical plane with the embossed arrow pointing upward for the shock sensor to work properly.

Both the 5815 and the 5819WHS have tamper protection and will send a signal to the control panel once the case is opened. Both devices are surface mount transmitters. The magnet on the 5815 must be within 1/2" of the reed and the 5819WHS can be .5" max magnet spacing gap. Both the 5815 and 5819WHS are supervised for check in signals if programmed as input type RF. Both transmitters operate in temperatures that range from 32 degrees F - 120 degrees F. Both also have low battery detection and will send a notification signal. The 5815 and the 5819WHS operate on one 3V lithium battery (CR123A) and should last 3-5 years.
