How Many Zones are on a Honeywell Receiver?

The number of zones on a Honeywell Receiver varies between different devices. Some of these devices support an unlimited number of wireless zones, and the user will only be restricted by the number of wireless zones on the panel. Other modules can only facilitate a finite number of zones.

Wireless receivers are commonly split into two categories. These are standard wireless receivers and wireless transceivers. Standard wireless receivers can only receive signals, and they will only work with one-way communication devices. Wireless transceivers can both send and receive signals. This allows them to work with bi-directional devices. Some examples of Honeywell devices that require the use of a transceiver include the Honeywell 5800WAVE Siren and the Honeywell 5828 Wireless Keypad.

Honeywell offers both standalone wireless receiver and wireless transceiver modules. These standalone devices are commonly used with alarm systems that do not have built-in wireless receivers. For example, the Honeywell VISTA Series Panels are hardwired systems that do not come with wireless receivers. If a user wants to use wireless sensors with one of these systems, they must add a separate wireless receiver module.

The Honeywell Wireless Systems typically include a built-in wireless receiver for supporting wireless sensors right out of the box. This built-in module is usually a wireless transceiver so that two-way communication devices can be used. Keep in mind that there is only a finite number of zones that the wireless panel can support. Each wireless sensor will typically use one wireless zone. However, there are sensors the use a greater number of zones.

Honeywell generally uses wireless receivers that accept sensors that operate at the 345 MHz frequency, which includes all of the Honeywell 5800 Series Sensors. Unless otherwise stated, these are the sensors you should use with a Honeywell Receiver. Keep in mind that the standard range for Honeywell 5800 Series Sensors is 200 nominal feet. However, this range can be reduced due to the presence of obstacles like walls and large metal objects.

Below is a list of standalone Honeywell Wireless Receivers and Transceivers, as well as Honeywell Alarm Systems that have built-in wireless transceivers for supporting wireless devices. This will tell you how many wireless zones each module or system will support.
