Honeywell 5808W3 Frequently Asked Questions

Honeywell 5808W3 vs Honeywell 5809
The 5808W3 and the 5809 are both life-safety sensors from Honeywell. Both devices are used to alert the user to the presence of a fire. However, the 5808W3 is both a heat and smoke sensor, while the 5809 is for heat sensing only. Learn more about these two Honeywell life-safety devices.

Does a 5800COMBO Do Low-Temp & Freeze Detection Like the 5808W3?
The 5800COMBO offers a low-temperature and freeze detection function that works in the same way as the low-temperature detection function on the 5808W3. This is done by setting the device to loop number 3 within zone programming. Learn more about the 5800COMBO and its programmable functions.

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.
Added:

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.
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.

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.

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.
