Honeywell 5819 vs 5819WHS
The Honeywell 5819 and 5819WHS are both multi-functional wireless devices that integrate shock sensors and door/window contacts. These sensors are capable of 3 discrete zones that will be mapped to different loops using the same serial number. Each device designate Loop 2 to the internal reed switch that can be used with a 5899 magnet which is NOT included. This can be used to protect a door, window or even a secured cabinet or safe. Loops 1 and 3 have similar purposes with slightly different integrated technologies. Loop 1 is designed for shock detection and Loop 3 for a wired normally closed contact.
Loop 1 on the 5819 has a shock processor on board but requires a normally closed wired shock sensor. A shock sensor like the ASC-SS1 needs to be wired to the TB1 terminals inside the tamper cover. Many consumers are surprised to find that the shock sensor is not included which is why Honeywell came out with the 5819WHS.
The 5819WHS has an integrated shock sensor built into the device and is allocated to loop 1. By programming loop 1 with this device you will need no other parts for shock detection. This makes the 5819WHS a better unit since all of the tech is integrated into the sensor itself.
Lastly, loop 3 is used for a normally closed contact on both devices. This zone can be used to hard wire something like the Honeywell 945t mini surface mount contact or any other NC contact.
