How Do I Program the Honeywell 5800COMBO to the 2GIG GC3?

You can program the Honeywell 5800COMBO to the 2GIG GC3 by putting the GC3 Panel into its wireless enrollment mode and activating the appropriate test switch on the 5800COMBO. The device has two test switches for this purpose. One is for smoke and heat, and the other is for carbon monoxide.

The 5800COMBO will use four zones when it has been fully programmed with a 2GIG GC3. Specifically, it will have one zone each for smoke/heat, carbon monoxide, freeze and maintenance. However, the sensor will not require all four zones if you do not intend to use all of these functions. Keep in mind that the sensor should be tested after enrolling it to the GC3.

Complete the following steps to program one of the zones for a Honeywell 5800 COMBO to a 2GIG GC3:

1. Open wireless zones. Start from the main screen of the 2GIG GC3. Click the 2GIG logo in the upper-right corner. Then enter the system's Installer Code (default is 1561). Then select System Configuration, and then Wireless Zones. You will now be in the Wireless Zones menu.

2. Choose a zone. On the left side of the screen, pick an available system zone. Click on the zone to highlight it. Then press the "Edit Zone" button. This will take you to a screen where you can enroll the zone and configure its settings.

3. Program the zone. The following settings should be set for the zone:

  • Sensor Type: This will depend on what the zone is being used for. If the zone is being used for smoke/heat, choose either "(09) 24-Hour Fire" or "(16) 24-Hour Fire Verification". The difference between these options is that (16) will require the smoke detector to be activated a second time after a 30-second period before an alarm will occur. For CO detection, select "(14) 24-Hour Carbon Monoxide". For freeze detection, select "(08) 24-Hour Auxiliary Alarm". For maintenance, select "(05) Day Zone".
  • Equipment Code: The 5800COMBO is not listed within the 2GIG programming options. But you can instead choose the next best option. For smoke/heat, freeze or maintenance, select "0589 - HW Smoke 5808W3". For CO detection, pick "0692 - Existing CO Detector".
  • Serial Number: The Serial Number can be programmed through auto-enrollment. Press the Learn button in the bottom-right corner. Then activate the appropriate test button on the 5800COMBO. If you are using the zone for smoke/heat, freeze or maintenance, press and hold the Smoke Test button for one (1) to two (2) seconds. If you are programming the zone for CO detection, press and hold the CO Test button for one (1) to two (2) seconds. In order for the command to go through the batteries will need to be properly inserted into the 5800COMBO. The system should automatically recognize the Serial Number for the 5800COMBO.
  • Equipment Age: This has no affect on the performance of the sensor. Choose "New" if the device is new, or "Existing" if it was previously enrolled with a different system.
  • Loop Number: Choose Loop 1 for smoke/heat or CO detection. Choose Loop 2 for maintenance. Choose Loop 3 for freeze. Do not choose Loop 4.
  • Voice Descriptors: The Voice Descriptor serves as the name for the 5800COMBO. This is the voice that the panel will speak out when the sensor is activated. Choose something easy to remember, like "Bedroom Smoke" or "Downstairs Carbon Monoxide".
  • Sensor Reports and Supervision: Set both to "Enabled".
  • Sensor Chime. This can be "Disabled", as the system will trigger an alarm upon device activation for this sensor.

4. Save the sensor. Press the "Return to System Configuration" button at the top of the screen. Then press the back arrow on the left side of the screen. Then press "Save" to confirm all the changes. The enrollment for that zone will then be complete. Remember, you will need to do this for all four of the 5800COMBO functions in order to get maximum usage out of the device.
