What Kind of Battery Goes In My Honeywell 5834-4?
The kind of battery that goes in your Honeywell 5834-4 is a 3-volt lithium coin cell battery. An example of this is the Honeywell CR2032. This type of battery will provide power for your Honeywell 5834-4 Keyfob for about 3 to 5 years. When the battery is low, it can be easily replaced.
With its incredibly slim design, the Honeywell CR2032 coin cell battery is perfect for sleek and compact devices like the 5834-4 Keyfob. The CR2032 is able to withstand temperatures ranging from -22 to 185 degrees Fahrenheit. This means that there is never any danger in carrying your keyfob and its battery with you at all times.
As the battery inside the 5834-4 begins losing voltage, the system may not respond as effectively as before. Once the voltage inside the battery falls below 2.3 volts, a few alerts will begin to occur. The most visible is a notice on the security panel stating that the zones associated with the keyfob buttons are experiencing a low battery. This message will be displayed whenever a signal is sent from the keyfob to the system by pressing any button on the 5834-4.
Additionally, a low battery will also be indicated by the fact that the LED light on the 5834-4 will no longer flash when a button is pressed. Normally, the device would display a red LED light when a signal is being sent in high-security mode, and a green LED light would indicate that a signal is being sent in standard mode. If you notice that no light is being displayed, then a low battery is the most likely cause.
Once the battery is low, it is very easy to replace. The process involves using a small Phillips head screwdriver to remove the back cover from the device. Then the old battery can be popped out using a small flat-head screwdriver. A new battery can then be slid into place, and the back cover can be reapplied. When inserting the new battery, be sure the + indicator is facing up.
