The Honeywell 5800PIR-RES is a wireless pet immune motion detector that is ideal for residential applications. As a member of the new 5800PIR series wireless motion detectors, the 5800PIR-RES is easier to install and less likely to trigger false alarms than older model Honeywell wireless motion detectors.
When the 5800PIR-RES motion detector is first powered up, it will enter warm up mode for approximately (45) seconds. The red LED will blink once per second during warm up mode. Afterwards, the 5800PIR-RES automatically enters the user friendly walk test mode. As you move around the room, the 5800PIR-RES's red LED will light up indicating detection. You can use this walk test mode to ensure you are mounting the wireless motion detector in the best possible location for maximum detection. The walk test mode will automatically turn off after (10) minutes making installation quick and easy.
The detection range of the 5800PIR-RES wireless motion detector is 35' x 40'. It will not detect pets up to a maximum total weight of (80) pounds. If you have cats or small dogs, we recommend installing the 5800PIR-RES so that there is no furniture within 6' of the motion detector to ensure pet immunity. Do not aim the motion detector at stairways or furniture that can be climbed on by animals.
We recommend installing the 5800PIR-RES wireless motion detector between 6.5' and 7.5' for optimal detection. If you mount the 5800PIR-RES on a metal surface, the wireless range will be reduced.
Optional swivel mount and ceiling mount brackets make for the easiest installation of the 5800PIR-RES wireless motion detector. However, for pet immune installations, you should mount the 5800PIR-RES flat on the wall. The optional mounting brackets eliminate the effectiveness of the pet immune feature.
The 5800PIR-RES wireless pet immune motion detector includes a user replaceable battery. The battery should last approximately (7) years under normal circumstances. There is no tamper feature on the 5800PIR-RES which makes changing the battery easiest for the do-it-yourself user as the motion detector will not trigger any alarms when you open its cover.
