What is the Honeywell SiXCOMBO?

The Honeywell SiXCOMBO is a wireless combination smoke, heat, and CO detector for use with the Honeywell Lyric Alarm System. It uses 128-bit AES encryption, and it offers one-go-all-go functionality. The sensor has test buttons on the front, and its internal sounder is rated at 85 dB.

The Honeywell SiXCOMBO is a life-safety sensor that offers smoke detection, heat detection, and carbon monoxide (CO) detection all in one convenient device. Fewer devices means more space on the wall or the ceiling, which can be very important for some users. Just keep in mind that even though the SiXCOMBO is one single device, it will use a different zone for each detection function you want to enable. If you enable smoke, heat, and CO detection, then the device will take up three (3) wireless zones on the Lyric System.

There are some useful features that really help the Honeywell SiXCOMBO stand-out. As a member of the Honeywell SiX Series Sensor Lineup, the Honeywell SiXCOMBO offers 128-bit AES encryption and a wireless communication range of roughly 300 nominal feet. It also supports one-go-all-go functionality. This means that if the SiXCOMBO is activated, then all of the other SiXCOMBO and SiXSMOKE device on the network with the feature enabled will also begin sounding. Remember that the internal sounder is 85 dB, so spreading the sound out with multiple devices activate can be important for alerting building occupants.

After enrolling the SiXCOMBO, you will then need to test the device. Make sure to put your system on test mode with the central station before doing this. The sensor has two (2) test buttons. One is for Smoke/Heat, and the other is for CO. By pressing one of these buttons, the sensor will transmit a Fire Alarm or a CO Alarm signal to the panel, and the panel will go into alarm mode. Keep in mind that this only tests the sensor's ability to transmit signals. If you want to test actual smoke detection, heat detection, or CO detection, then additional equipment is needed. Canned smoke can test for smoke detection. A hair dryer on its max setting can test for heat detection. And canned CO gas can test for CO detection. Again, put your system on test mode before you attempt to test any function of the SiXCOMBO. The sensor must be tested at least once (1) per year to receive and maintain an updated Certificate of Alarm (CoA).
