Why is my Honeywell 5800C2W showing an orange light?
The 5800C2W is a powered device with its own backup battery, which allows you to convert up to 9 hardwired zones into 5800 series wireless zones on a compatible Honeywell alarm panel. It has 4 separate LED’s which indicate various conditions.
LED color is subjective, what I see as an orange LED, you may see as yellow, and a third person might call amber. In this case, the orange/yellow/amber LED on the 5800C2W indicates a low battery condition. When the unit’s battery voltage drops to between 11.2VDC and 9.6VDC, a low battery message is sent to the control panel and the orange/yellow/amber LED (#3) comes on. If the battery voltage drops to 9.5VDC or below, the battery is disconnected. The battery will not connect again until AC is restored and it can begin charging again.
Note: The first battery test occurs 1 hour after power up. To quickly verify a good backup battery, unplug the power supply then power back up; the system will perform a battery test within 1 minute.
