What Is the Best Honeywell Sensor for the 21iP?

The best Honeywell sensor for the 21iP depends on what kind of function is needed from the sensor. Some common types of sensors include door and window sensors, motion sensors, smoke and heat sensors and carbon monoxide sensors. Great sensor options of all types are available for the 21iP.

In order to integrate a wireless sensor with a Honeywell Vista 21iP security panel, you will need to install a Honeywell 6160RF alarm keypad with an integrated wireless receiver. This will allow you to use any Honeywell 5800 Series wireless device with your Vista 21iP panel. Alternatively, you can also use a Honeywell 5881ENH or a Honeywell 5881ENM instead of a 6160RF keypad, though you will still need a keypad to control the Vista 21iP.

For motion sensors, we recommend the Honeywell 5800PIR-RES. The 5800PIR-RES sensor uses passive infrared technology to detect motion, and it features pet-immunity to prevent pets from triggering the alarm. For commercial environments, where a larger range of motion detection is generally needed, the Honeywell 5800PIR-COM can be used instead. Alarm Grid also offers the Honeywell 5800PIR-OD for outdoor use.

An excellent choice for a door and window sensor designed to work with the Vista 21iP is the Honeywell 5800MINI. This door and window sensor offers a small and sleek design and rounded edges for an aesthetically pleasing look. Additionally, the Honeywell 5816 is available for users who need their door and window sensor to double as a wireless transmitter.

Finally, there are several fantastic life safety sensors compatible with the Vista 21iP. The Honeywell 5800COMBO is an extremely versatile sensor that offers detection for smoke, heat and carbon monoxide. This sensor makes a great addition to any Vista panel. If only smoke and heat detection is required, then the Honeywell 5808W3 sensor is an strong alternative option. Likewise, if the user only needs a sensor for the detection of carbon monoxide, a Honeywell 5800CO sensor can certainly be installed.

Finally, it is important to remember that the typical range of a Honeywell 5800 Series sensor is about 200 feet from the wireless receiver. If this range is insufficient, a Honeywell 5800RP wireless repeater can be added in order to extend this distance.
