Honeywell 5806W3 vs Honeywell 5809
The 5806W3 and the 5809 are both life-safety sensors from Honeywell. They are both used to alert any building occupants to the presence of a fire, and they will work with the same panels. However, the 5806W3 is a smoke sensor, while the 5809 is a heat sensor. Learn more about these two devices.

How Does a Fire Detector Work?
There are two primary methods for detecting a fire. These are through either smoke detection and heat detection. For that reason, a "fire detector" is more commonly referred to as a "smoke detector" or a "heat detector". There are also combo smoke and heat sensors. Learn more about these devices.

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.
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.

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.
