Honeywell 5800PIR-RES Frequently Asked Questions

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.

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.
Added:

Do Motion Sensors Work in the Dark?
Passive infrared motion sensors work by detecting changes in infrared energy. This allows them to work in the dark, Learn more about motion detection sensors and how they work.
Added:

How Does a Pet-Immune Motion Detector Work?
If a motion detector is pet-immune, it can be set up in a way that it will not activate because of a small animal walking by. Find out more about pet-immune motion detectors.
Added:

Does a Honeywell 5800PIR-RES Motion Light Up?
A Honeywell 5800PIR-RES Motion will light up when it is in its walk test mode. The sensor will automatically activate this mode whenever it is first powered on. In this mode, the sensor will display a red LED light upon detecting. Learn more about walk test mode on a Honeywell 5800IR-RES.
Added:

What Is the Range of My PIR Motion?
Every passive infrared (PIR) motion has its own range and field of vision. The range for one PIR motion can be considerably different from that of another. It is very important that you use a PIR motion with an appropriate range for the situation. Find out the range of your PIR motion.
Added:

Where Should I Install My Motion Detector?
There are several things you should keep in mind when choosing a location for a motion detector. The ideal location for a motion detector is in the corner of a room and away from any windows. The device should be placed 6 to 8 feet off the ground. Learn more about where to install a motion sensor.

How Do I Turn Off Alarm Reporting for a Honeywell 5800 Series Motion Sensor?
Alarm reporting for a Honeywell 5800 Series Motion Sensor can be turned off through zone programming. This will instruct the system to not send out a distress signal to the central station if an alarm event involving that sensor were to occur. Learn more about alarm reporting on a motion sensor.
Added:

How Do I Turn Off Sensor Supervision for a Honeywell 5800 Series Motion Sensor?
Sensor supervision on a 5800 Series Motion Sensor is used by an alarm system to check-in with the sensor and make sure that it is within range and communicating properly. Turning this off will have the panel not look out for any check-in signals from the sensor. Learn more about sensor supervision.
