What Motion Sensors Work w/ the LYNX Touch L7000?
The Honeywell 5800 Series Motion Sensors work with the LYNX Touch L7000. These sensors operate at 345 MHz, which is the frequency supported by the system. You can easily auto-enroll these motion sensors with the panel. You will need the system's Installer Code (default 4112) to do this.
When it comes to choosing a motion detecting sensor for an L7000, you have many options available. The best one really depends on your unique needs.The standard go-to motion sensor is the Honeywell 5800PIR-RES. This a good motion sensor for residential use. It offers a modest detection area of 40 feet by 35 feet when mounted at a height between 6.5 feet and 7.5 feet. It also supports pet immunity for small animals weighing up to 80 pounds. This is a good all-around motion sensor if you just want something simple without any advanced or fancy features.
If you want a very similar motion sensor with a few extra features, the Honeywell 5800PIR is a good option. This motion sensor has the same coverage area and pet immunity features as the 5800PIR-RES. However, the 5800PIR adds a tamper cover to alert the system if someone tries to open or disable the sensor. The 5800PIR also provides a low-temperature sensor that is set up with the system by programming the device as Loop Number 3.
If you need something a little stronger, the Honeywell 5800PIR-COM is specifically designed for commercial use. Its default coverage area is 80 feet by 60 feet. But you can swap out the standard lens with the included long-range lens to achieve a coverage area of 100 feet by 20 feet. This is perfect for long, narrow areas like hallways or corridors. The sensor has three (3) programmable loops. The first two (Loop 1 & Loop 2) are for low and high motion detection sensitivity respectively. Loop 3 is for low-temperature detection. The sensor also offers a tamper cover.
If you want a Dual Tec Motion Sensor for preventing false alarms, you might consider the Honeywell 5898. A motion is considered "Dual Tec" if it uses both PIR technology and microwave technology to detect motion. This is unlike all of the other motion sensors on this list, which only use PIR technology. With the Honeywell 5898, the device will only activate if both the PIR sensor and the microwave sensor are activated. This helps prevents false alarms where a misleading source might cause just a PIR sensor or just a microwave sensor to activate. Using a Dual Tec motion sensor can be ideal for users who have been struggling with false alarms from a standard PIR motion sensor. The coverage area for the 5898 is 60 feet by 50 feet with the default lens, and 40 feet by 35 feet using the included pet immune lens. Using the pet immune lens will provide pet immunity for animals weighing up to 100 pounds.
If you need a motion sensor for outdoor use, then you will want the Honeywell 5800PIR-OD. This motion sensor features a protective exterior (IP54 rating) to keep it functioning in environments that feature heavy wind, rain, dust and sunlight. The sensor will work in environments ranging from -4° Fahrenheit to 122° Fahrenheit. The maximum coverage area is 40 feet by 40 feet. You can adjust sensitivity for the Honeywell 5800PIR-OD by increasing or decreasing the pulse count.
Finally, there is a motion detector from Optex that will work if you don't want to use a motion sensor from Honeywell. The Optex WNX-40HW will easily enroll with the L7000 System. It offers a coverage are of 40 feet by 40 feet. If you want, you can adjust this coverage area to 60 feet by 6 feet by using the optional Optex FL-60N Lens. Optex also offers a couple of others motion sensors that will work with the L7000. There is the Optex WFX-360HW, which is a ceiling-mount motion sensor with a coverage diameter of 40 feet. Finally, there is the Optex FTN-RRHW, which is an outdoor motion sensor that is more affordable and less powerful than the 5800PIR-OD.
