How Do I Set Dip Switches on a 5883H Wireless Receiver?
The Honeywell 5883H Wireless Transceiver needs to be programmed with one device address for its wireless receiver (addresses 1-7) and one for its wireless transmitter (addresses 27-30). The device addresses that are selected will need to be programmed using the Honeywell alarm system.
When setting the dip switches, an "up" position will set a switch to on, while a "down" position will set a switch to off. There are seven dip switches on a 5883H, and they will be set based largely based upon the transmitter address and the receiver address. To set the dip switches, simply place each switch in the appropriate position.
If you are not using bi-directional devices, which require a transmitter module, do not program the transmitter's device address into the control panel. Also, make sure that dip switch 6 is set to off (down position) if you are not using any of these devices.
Follow the chart below to set the dip switches with the Honeywell 5883H wireless transceiver:
|1||Check/deactivate high-security keys|
|Device Address Settings|
|5||Reserved - must be OFF|
|6||ON = enable transmitter (if using 5800TM compatible devices)
Note: If using more than one 5883H in a system, enable the transmitter in only one 5883H.
OFF = disable transmitter
|7||Not used; leave in OFF position|
|8||Used when removing RF keypads; otherwise leave OFF|
*Note: An address of 0 will set the transmitter or receiver to a non-address.
