Honeywell 5800COMBO Frequently Asked Questions

What's the Best Place to Install a Smoke Detector?
When choosing a location for a smoke detector, there are some things to remember. For example, it should be placed away from any vents or ducts that might affect its performance. It should also be at least 10 feet away from any kitchen appliances. Learn more about where to place a smoke detector.

Honeywell 5800COMBO vs Honeywell 5809
The 5800COMBO and the 5809 are both wireless fire sensors from Honeywell. The 5809 is for heat detection only, while the 5800COMBO is used for heat, smoke and carbon monoxide detection. Both sensors will interface with the same alarm systems. Learn more about these life-safety sensors.
Added:

Will a Smoke Detector Detect Heat?
Not all smoke detectors are designed to detect the presence of high heat. These sensors will only detect high heat if that is a specific function of the device. Otherwise, a smoke detector will only detect smoke, and nothing more. Learn more about smoke detectors and their functionality.

What Does the Maintenance Feature Do On a 5800COMBO, 5808W3 & 5806W3?
On Honeywell Smokes, the maintenance feature is used to let the user know when they need to clean the device. By cleaning the device regularly and performing proper maintenance, you can ensure that your smoke detector functions properly for many years. Learn more about these Honeywell Smokes.
Added:

Conventional vs Monitored Smoke Detectors
Both conventional smoke detectors and monitored smoke detectors are life-safety devices that activate upon detecting smoke. But only a monitored smoke detector can contact a central station for help. A conventional smoke detector is just a noise-making device. Learn more about smoke detectors.

Where in My Home Should I Put Carbon Monoxide Detectors?
You should have at least one CO detector on each floor of your home. Some common locations for CO detectors include near bedrooms and near attached garages. The devices should be placed 5 feet off the ground and away from direct sunlight or moisture. Learn more about where to place CO detectors.
Added:

Where Should I Install a Carbon Monoxide Detector?
There are some simple guidelines to follow when deciding where to install a CO detector. Depending on the size of the building, you may need to install more than one. Typically, there should be at least one CO detector on each floor of the building. Learn more about where to install a CO detector.

Honeywell 5800COMBO vs 5808W3
The 5800COMBO and the 5808W3 are both life-safety devices from Honeywell. They communicate at the same frequency, and they are compatible with the same alarm systems. However, the 5800COMBO offers carbon monoxide detection, while the 5808W3 does not. Learn more about these two devices.
Added:

Honeywell 5800COMBO vs 5806W3
The 5800COMBO and the 5806W3 are two life-safety devices. Both are from the Honeywell 5800 Series, and both communicate at a frequency of 345 MHz. However, the 5800COMBO provides smoke, heat and CO detection, while the 5806W3 only provides smoke detection. Learn more about these two sensors.
Added:

How Do I Change the Battery in the 5800COMBO?
The 5800COMBO is powered by four CR123A lithium batteries. To change these batteries, start by removing the device from its back plate. Then replace the old batteries with four new ones. Then reapply the device to the back plate. Learn more about replacing the batteries in a Honeywell 5800COMBO.
