Honeywell 5816 vs 5800RPS
Honeywell’s 5800RPS is a wireless recessed roller plunger transmitter. The 5800RPS is a single-zone transmitter with dimensions 1" L x 3/4" D and a 8" antenna. The 5800RPS is to be recessed in the hinged side of wood or metal door frames and requires a 3/4" diameter, 1 1/4" deep hole. Also, at least 8 " for the antenna. When installed the antenna must be fully extended and straight for best range. The 5800RPS does not use a magnet. This transmitter uses a plunger instead of a reed switch with a magnet. The 5800RPS has 1 Loop: Plunger. This is the only loop on this transmitter. The 5800RPS is supervised for check in signals and low battery supervision. The transmitter will send check in signal every 70 to 90 minutes. The 5800RPS does not support tamper feature.The 5800RPS’s operating temperatures range from 10°F to 120°F and up to 95% non-condensing humidity. The 5800RPS is not weatherproof. The 5800RPS will work with any 5800 series wireless receiver. The 5800RPS provides concealed protection for doors and is so small it almost disappears once installed. The 5800RPS is a great transmitter to use when cosmetic and discretion are a concern.
Honeywell’s 5816 is a wireless door, window transmitter and part of the 5800 door window series. The dimensions of the 5816 are 1 9/16"W x 3 1/16"H x 1 3/16"D. The 5816 uses a Honeywell 5899 magnet. The dimensions for the magnet are 1.5”L x .5”W x .25”H. The dimensions for the spacer are .12mm thick. This 5816 transmitter operates on a 7-digit serial number and a loop number that must be programmed into a wireless zone in the control panel. The 5816 transmitter has 2 loops: loops: 1 = Wired Contacts, 2 = Reed switch. Both loops are normally closed. When the 5816 senses a fault condition, it will send a fault signal to the control panel if programmed for input type RF. The 5816 will send a check in signal every 70 to 90 minutes. The unit will not send the restore signal until the physical contact is restored. Along with this check in signal the transmitters also sends the status of both loops, the tamper, and the battery.The 5816 will send a tamper signal to the control panel when the cover is removed. It will send loop 4. The unit will send the Low batt signal when battery voltage reaches 2.3V. It stops functioning at 2.0V. When the unit detects a low battery, it will send the low battery signal the next time it is sends any other signal. If the zone is programmed as input type 4, unsupervised, the panel will still see the low battery signal if it is sent with the check-in signal. Repeating transmissions is not a feature of this product. The 5816 has an operating temperature range from 32F - 120F and up to 95% non-condensing humidity. The 5816 is not weather proof. The 5816 is an excellent choice to use on a door or window and has a transmitting range of 200ft nominal. The 5816 has internal screw terminals which can be utilized to hard wire an additional zone to any wired door window contact.
