Honeywell’s 5816 and 5800MICRA have a lot of the same functions, yet are completely different. The main differences: the 5816 is a surface mounted transmitter. The 5816 has internal screw terminals which can be utilized to hard wire an additional zone to any wired door/window contact, while the 5800MICRA is recessed. Both are excellent choices for window / door transmitters.
