Honeywell 5800 Series wireless door and window sensors come in variable sizes and mounting types. The best 5800 sensor for your L3000 depends upon your specific needs.
The Honeywell 5816 is a surface-mounted sensor that has 2 loops. Users can wire a normally closed contact to the sensor's terminals and program it to Loop 1. Loop 2 is also normally closed and monitors the internal reed switch, using a magnet next to the 5816. The dimensions are. 3-1/16" H x 1-9/16" W x 1-3/16" D
The Honeywell 5800MINI is a single zone surface mount sensor with dimensions 1"W x 2.2"H x 0.25"D and the magnet is 0.25"W x 0.25"D x 1"H
The Honeywell 5820L is a surface mount sensor with dimensions of 3"H x .5"W x .8"D. Users find these dimensions perfect for double hung windows.
The Honeywell 5815 is also a 2 zone door/window transmitter like the 5816 except the dimensions are 1-1/2"W x 3"H x 7/8"D (Shown here with no magnet.)
The Honeywell 5814 is an ultra small sensor with dimensions of 1-1/2" H x 1-3/16" W x 5/8" D. The 5814 is ideal for casement windows and hard to reach areas.
Unlike surface-mounted sensors, recessed sensors are hidden inside the window and frame so that they are barely seen. However, they require users to drill a hole in the frame of their window.
The Honeywell 5818MNL features a tapered cylinder and requires a 3/4 inch drill hole and a 3 inch deep frame. The dimensions are 3/4" Diameter, 3" Long; Magnet: 3/8" Diameter, 1/2" Long.
The Honeywell 5800MICRA is the smallest wireless recessed sensor with dimensions of 0.750" diameter; Wire Antenna: 11" x 0.050. Users will need to drill a ¾ inch hole to install this sensor. The 5800MICRA is perfect for vinyl windows.
