Why is my 5800 series sensor losing RF supervision?
An RF supervision loss occurs when your Honeywell wireless receiver does not receive an RF check-in signal from one or more of your Honeywell 5800 Series wireless devices for greater than (12) hours. The system generates the loss of RF supervision, typically designated by a 'Check nn' condition where 'nn' is the (2) digit zone number of the wireless device experiencing the loss of RF supervision, so that you know which Honeywell 5800 Series wireless devices are not being seen by your wireless security system.
If the RF supervision trouble comes after a low battery signal, the wireless sensor most likely turned off after its battery fully drained. Replacing the battery within the Honeywell 5800 Series wireless device and power cycling your Honeywell wireless security system will clear the RF supervision trouble.
The more common reason for a loss of RF supervision is an environmental factor that is interfering with the wireless signal between your Honeywell wireless receiver and your 5800 Series wireless device. Any kind of metal between your wireless receiver and your wireless sensor will oftentimes cause an RF supervision loss. Avoid installing your Honeywell 5800 wireless device on metal doors or windows. As it is often hard to know what materials are within your home's walls, testing your wireless devices regularly is always recommended. Moving a Honeywell 5800 Series wireless device a few inches up or down or left or right can make a huge difference when troubleshooting an RF supervision loss.
If you are experiencing frequent RF supervision problems, you can try adding a Honeywell 5800RP wireless repeater between your wireless receiver and the devices causing the RF supervision issues. The 5800RP repeater boosts the wireless signal and extends the wireless range of your Honeywell wireless security system.
