How Do I Program a Honeywell 5800CO Carbon Monoxide Detector?

You can program a Honeywell 5800CO Carbon Monoxide Detector by putting the panel into its wireless enrollment mode and then using the test button on the 5800CO to learn it in. The system should then auto-enroll the 5800CO sensor, and you will be able to configure the zone settings.

The Honeywell 5800CO is a wireless carbon monoxide sensor that is used for detecting potentially lethal carbon monoxide gas. It operates at 345 MHz, which makes it compatible with most Honeywell and 2GIG Systems. The actual programming process depends on the panel that is being used. However, most panels follow the same general steps.

Complete the following steps to program a Honeywell 5800CO Carbon Monoxide Detector:

1. Access wireless enrollment mode. Put your panel into its wireless enrollment mode so that you can auto-enroll the 5800CO. The steps for doing this will depend on the panel you are using. See your panel's installation manual for more information if necessary.

If you are using a Honeywell Lyric Controller or a Honeywell LYNX Touch Panel, then you will follow the same basic process. From the main screen, choose Security > More (Lynx only) > Tools > Installer Code (default 4112) > Program > Zones > Add New > Serial Number. The panel will now be in its wireless enrollment mode.

2. Enroll the sensor. Press and hold the test button on the 5800CO to send a signal transmission to the panel to auto-enroll it. When doing this, the detector must be OFF the base. In order to access the test button, you may need a small thin object such as a paper clip. Once a signal has been sent, and you receive a beep from the alarm panel, release the test button. On a Lyric or LYNX System, you will need to do this three times. The panel will likely beep after each successful transmission. You should be taken back to the previous screen after the sensor has auto-enrolled.

The recessed test button can be seen in the following diagram:


3. Configure the zone. Go through and configure the settings for the zone. This process will vary depending on the panel you are using. But the selections are similar across most panels.

The 5800CO uses Loop Number 1.

Zone Descriptors are used to name the device, and they serve as a way to identify the sensor.

The Device Type should be set as Carbon Monoxide Detector.

The Response Type should be Carbon Monoxide.

Alarm Report should be set to Yes, and Supervision should be Enabled.

Make sure to save the changes when finished.

Before exiting programming, install the 5800CO onto its mounting base.

4. Test the sensor. You should test the sensor after enrollment to make sure it was programmed correctly. Make sure to put your system on test mode with the central station before doing this. Press and hold the test button on the sensor for five full seconds. You may need a small thin object to do this. The sensor should activate, and the panel will go into alarm. Clear the alarm using your system's Master Code.
