Honeywell 5800RPS - Wireless Recessed Door Sensor Reviews
Submitted on 09/17/2019 Alarm Grid
The Honeywell 5800RPS is an outstanding wireless recessed door sensor for 345 MHz security systems. It has a roller plunger switch that won't get caught on the door. This allows it to be used with excellent reliability. And since this is a plunger switch, you only need to drill a hole into the frame. This recessed plunger switch door sensor works very well, which is why we give it a 5 Star Rating.
The way that the Honeywell 5800RPS works is quite simple. You drill an appropriately sized hole into your door frame and then insert the senor into the hole. When the door closes, the rolling plunger switch will be pressed inward. Opening the door will allow the plunger switch to pop up, and the sensor will transmit a signal to the system to let it know that the door is opened. Of course, you must also remember to enroll the sensor with the system! This sensor works great with most Honeywell Systems and 2GIG Systems.
Recessed plunger switch sensors are less common than traditional door contacts that use a sensor and magnet. But sensors like the Honeywell 5800RPS still have an important place in the industry. They are out of view when the door is closed, which leads to a more aesthetically pleasing installation. And they are generally very easy to use. You just have to make sure that the door is close enough to its frame when closed so that the plunger switch is properly pressed down. You will also want to avoid using the Honeywell 5800RPS in windows, as rain could result in a leak.
Overall, our technicians are very pleased with the performance of the Honeywell 5800RPS. We generally recommend it to anyone wanting a recessed plunger sensor with a compatible 345 MHz system. This is truly a great sensor from Honeywell, and we give it 5 Stars.
