Why Is My Wireless ADT Motion Sensor Flashing Red?
A motion sensor that is flashing red has recently been powered on. For the first 10 minutes, the device will flash red whenever motion is detected. Then the flashing will stop. This is done for testing purposes so that the motion can be placed in a good location. Learn more about motion sensors.

What Is the Difference Between 5800 Wireless Technology and Z-Wave?
Honeywell 5800 Series wireless sensors primarily consist of security and life-safety devices, while Z-Wave devices are generally for home automation purposes. Z-Wave devices can be controlled remotely using an interactive platform, such as Total Connect. This is not possible for 5800 Series devices.
