How Do I Install the Honeywell 5806W3?

You can install the Honeywell 5806W3 by first selecting an appropriate location. Once you have chosen a spot, secure the mounting plate to the wall or ceiling using the provided screws and wall anchors. Finally, attach the device to the mounting plate. Make sure that it clicks into place.


Complete the following steps to install a Honeywell 5806W3 Smoke Detector:

1. Select a location. Before attempting to install a 5806W3, you should determine a good location for the device. It should be placed in an easily accessible that allows it to successfully alert others to the presence of a fire. Since smoke rises, we strongly advise placing smoke detectors high up on the wall or on the ceiling. They should also be placed away from any air vents, ducts or kitchen appliances that may interfere with its normal function.

Also keep in mind that there should ideally be at least one smoke detector on each floor of a building. Some recommended locations include inside bedrooms, hallways, living rooms, dens and near stairwells. Some places that are less ideal for smoke detectors include bathrooms, cabinets and other covered areas. Remember that there should be no objects blocking the device, and it must always be within range of the alarm system.

Please consult this FAQ for more information on choosing a location for a smoke detector.

2. Secure the mounting plate. Hold the mounting plate up against the wall or ceiling in the spot where you ultimately want to place the 5806W3. Use a writing device to mark the locations of the holes that will be drilled for the wall anchors and screws. When drilling the holes, make sure to accommodate for both the wall anchors and screws. With the holes drilled, the mounting plate can then be secured to the wall or ceiling using the included screws and wall anchors.

3. Secure the device. Hold the 5806W3 Smoke Detector against the mounting plate. Align it with the mounting plate, and turn it clockwise to lock it into place. The device will "click" to confirm that it has been secured to the mounting plate.
