Honeywell 5816 vs 5814

The Honeywell 5816 is a wireless, 2 zone door window transmitter. The 5816 has internal screw terminals which can be utilized to hard wire an additional zone to any wired door window contact. Loop 1 is for the hardwire contacts and loop 2 is the built in reed switch, both are normally closed. Both loops can be used at the same time. Loops 1’s hard wired response time is rated for 100mS. This is the amount of time (in milliseconds) that it takes for the actual fault of a loop to get acknowledged by the alarm control panel. This is a false alarm reduction method that reduces false alarms due to quick RF spikes, intermittent connections.

The Honeywell 5814 is a wireless, 1 zone door window transmitter. Loop 1, normally closed built in reed switch.

The 5816 has a RF transmitting range up to 200 feet and will operate in temperatures ranging from 32 degrees F - 120 degrees F.

The 5814 has a RF transmitting range up to 100 feet and will operate in temperatures ranging from 32 degrees F - 120 degrees F. Adding a Honeywell 5800RP repeater will increase the transmitting range if needed.

The dimensions of the 5816 are 1 9/16"W x 3 1/16"H x 1 3/16"D.

The 5814 is ultra small with dimensions of 1 ½”W x 1 3/16”H x ⅝”D which is ideal for casement windows and small spaces.

Both the 5816 and the 5814 are supervised, have tamper detection, low battery detection and RF supervision.

The 5816 magnet spacing gap is ½” maximum if the reed switch is being used. For wood or non-magnetic surfaces, the gap is 1.36 inches. For steel and other magnetic surfaces the gap is 0.78 inches.

The 5814 has a magnet spacing gap of .5 inches.

The 5816 operates on one 3V lithium battery and the 5814 operates on one 3V coin battery, both have a battery life of 3-5 years.
