What Systems Connect w/ Honeywell 5800 Smoke Detectors?
The systems that connect with Honeywell 5800 Smoke Detectors are those that support the 345 MHz frequency. That is the wireless frequency used by Honeywell 5800 Smoke Detectors. The system must have a 345 MHz wireless receiver. The receiver may be internal, or it may be added to the panel.
Honeywell 5800 Smoke Detectors are wireless smoke detectors that communicate at 345 MHz. An alarm system must have a wireless receiver that accepts the 345 MHz frequency to support these sensors. Nearly any system that supports the 345 MHz frequency will support these sensors. Some examples of systems that support the 345 MHz frequency include the Honeywell Lyric Controller, the Honeywell LYNX Touch Panels, the Honeywell VISTA Systems (added receiver required), and the 345 MHz version of the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus. All of these systems can support Honeywell 5800 Smoke Detectors.
When looking at the lineup of Honeywell 5800 Smoke Detectors, there are only three (3) models to choose from. These are the Honeywell 5806W3, the Honeywell 5808W3, and the Honeywell 5800COMBO. The Honeywell 5806W3 features a photoelectric smoke detector, and nothing more. The 5808W3 adds heat and freeze detection, in addition to smoke detection. And the Honeywell 5800COMBO offers smoke, heat, freeze, and carbon monoxide detection in one convenient sensor.
All Honeywell 5800 Smoke Detectors can be auto-enrolled with a compatible system. This is done by putting the system into its auto-enrollment mode and then activating the test button on the device. Please note that the 5800COMBO has two (2) separate test buttons, with one being for smoke and heat testing, and the other being for CO testing. The test button you use for enrollment will depend on which function you are trying to use with the zone. On that note, it is also important to understand that each detection function (smoke/heat, low-temp, CO) will require its own zone on the system. Likewise, the 5808W3 will use two (2) zones, with one being for smoke & heat, and the other being for low-temperature detection. Since the 5806W3 only offers smoke detection, it only uses one (1) zone. If there is a feature with the 5808W3 or 5800COMBO that you do not want to use, then you can skip the programming process for that feature.
