Honeywell 5800PIR-RES Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Walk Test?
You should perform a Walk Test after installing a new motion sensor to make sure it responds properly and won't cause false alarms. Learn about Walk Tests and how they work.

Will a Honeywell 5800PIR Motion Activate an Audible Alarm?
In most cases, a Honeywell 5800PIR Motion Detector will cause an audible alarm if it is activated. This is dependent upon sensor and system settings. Learn about the 5800PIR.
Added:

Does the 5800PIR-RES Have a Camera or is it Just a Motion Detector?
The 5800PIR-RES is strictly a motion sensor, and it does not have a built-in camera. It will alert the security system upon detecting motion. Learn about the 5800PIR-RES.

Do Pets Set Off Motion Detectors?
A pet should not set off a motion detector if the device offers pet immunity and has been mounted properly. Find out how to prevent your pets from setting off motion sensors.
Added:

What is a PIR Motion Sensor?
Passive infrared (PIR) technology is the most common method for detecting motion. This involves looking for changes in infrared energy. Learn about PIR motion sensors.
Added:

Do Cats Set Off Motion Detectors?
Animals can activate motions if they are able to get in their direct field of view. This is usually the result of a poor installation. Learn more about pet-immune motion sensors.

How Do You Delete a Honeywell Wireless Device?
First, enter zone programming. Next, set the zone type to "Not Used". Finally, confirm you want to delete the zone. Learn how to delete a wireless device from the system.
Added:

Do Alarm Motion Sensors Work Through Glass?
Motion sensors detect changes in infrared (IR) energy. This cannot be done through modern glass, so motion sensors do not sense through glass. Learn more about PIR motion sensors.
Added:

Do Motion Detectors Work Through Windows?
Motion sensors are usually unable to detect motion through glass. The infrared energy needed to activate a motion won't easily pass through glass. Learn more about motion sensors.
