The Honeywell 5800SS1 is a wireless shock sensor used to protect a window or glass door. We recommend using the shock sensor instead of the Honeywell 5853 glass break detector in rooms with weird acoustics like kitchens, bathrooms or skylights. Each pane of glass that you are protecting will require its own wireless shock sensor. The shock sensor will cover the following glass types: plate, laminate, wired, sealed insulated, coated and tempered, up to 1/4" thick.
The installation of 5800SS1 wireless shock sensor is extremely easy. The sensor should be mounted 1" from the corner edge of the glass frame for optimal detection. You should first test the range of the 5800SS1 back to your wireless alarm system using the Go/No Go test. The RF transmitting range of the device is 200' nominal. If the sensor is showing good signal strength, then you need to verify detection by holding the device up to the glass and tapping the opposite corner (up to 10' away) with a screwdriver handle. The wireless alarm system will let you know if the Honeywell 5800SS1 is working properly in that position. Assuming it is, clean the glass with water and isopropyl alcohol and once the glass is dry, remove the adhesive backing tape and press the 5800SS1 firmly onto the glass pane. Test operation a final time after installation is complete to ensure the wireless shock sensor will work as expected.
The Honeywell 5800SS1 is powered by (1) lithium CR2 battery. You should get (10) years of battery life from the sensor under normal conditions. Once the 5800SS1 is reporting a low battery signal to your wireless home alarm system, you will need to replace the battery. You should use a screwdriver to carefully pry off the sensor's cover. Once you have installed a fresh battery, simply replace the sensor cover to continue protection.
