How Do I Learn a Honeywell 5800CO Into a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus?
You can learn a Honeywell 5800CO into a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus by putting the system into its auto-enrollment mode and then powering on the 5800CO. The Serial Number associated with the 5800CO should be displayed on the screen. Confirm the Serial Number and configure the zone to finish.
The Honeywell 5800CO is part of the Honeywell 5800 Series lineup. It is used for detecting the presence of potentially lethal carbon monoxide gas. Just like every other 5800 Series device, the 5800CO operates at 345 MHz. It only works with IQ Panel 2 Plus Systems that have the appropriate 345 MHz legacy card. The sensor does not work with the regular IQ Panel 2. It is also not commpatible with the versions of the IQ Panel 2 Plus that use the 319.5 MHz legacy card or the 433 MHz legacy card.
If you are thinking of getting a Honeywell 5800CO for use with your IQ Panel 2 Plus 345 MHz System, then the first thing you should do is make sure your system is compatible. You will want to make sure that your IQ Panel 2 Plus System has a 345 MHz legacy card installed. If your IQ Panel 2 Plus came in the following white and silver box, then it is a 345 MHz version:
You can also check using the part number. There are two part numbers associated with the 345 MHz IQ Panel 2 Plus. Part number QS9201-5208-840 is the Verizon LTE model. Part number QS9202-5208-840 is the AT&T LTE model. If the part number is different, then your IQ Panel 2 Plus most likely does not support 345 MHz sensors.
Another option for confirming panel version is to manually check the available Source options. This is found within the menu for programming a new sensor. You should see an option called "SecurityRF-345". This indicates that the system has a 345 MHz legacy card installed and active. If you do not see that source option, then your IQ Panel 2 Plus cannot support a Honeywell 5800CO.
If you want to enroll a Honeywell 5800CO with a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus with 345 MHz Legacy Card, complete the following steps:
1. Enter auto-enrollment mode. Begin from the home screen of the IQ Panel 2 Plus System. Click the small grey bar at the top of the screen. Select Settings > Advanced Settings > Installer Code (default is 1111) > Devices > Security Sensors > Auto Learn Sensor. This will put the panel into its wireless enrollment mode.
2. Power the device. When you power on the 5800CO, it will send out a signal for auto-enrollment. The IQ Panel 2 Plus should recognize this signal and give the user the option to enroll the sensor. You can power on the sensor by connecting its batteries. You will need to open up the sensor first. You can do this by pressing the sensor against its back plate and then turning the device counterclockwise to release. If you have never powered on the 5800CO before, then there should be a battery tab you can remove to conveniently connect the batteries. Otherwise, take out the existing battery to power down and then reinsert it.
3. Confirm enrollment. After powering the device, the IQ Panel 2 Plus should display a message that it has detected the signal from the 5800CO. This message should include the Serial Number for the 5800CO. Confirm that the Serial Number is correct. Then press the OK button to confirm enrollment.
4. Adjust the zone settings. You must go through and configure the zone settings as needed. The Sensor Type should be Carbon Monoxide. The Sensor Group should be 34-CO. Loop Number 1 should be selected. You should name the sensor something easy to remember, like "Basement CO" or "Living Room CO". The Source should read "SecurityRF-345". Press Add New when finished.
