The Honeywell 5800WAVE is a wireless siren for a Honeywell wireless home security system. The 5800WAVE is ideal for the Honeywell LYNX security systems as the LYNX control panels do not have enough auxiliary power to power a wired siren. It is also a great addition to an already existing Honeywell wired security system as you can provide extra alarm sirens without having to run new wires throughout the home or business. The wireless siren has an audible output of 77.3 dB at a distance of ten feet (95 dB at three feet).

The 5800WAVE wireless siren module has a radio frequency (RF) receiver and an integrated transmitter. Therefore, the siren can send module status (tamper, low battery and AC loss) to the security system and can display current security system status. Three LEDs on the front of the 5800WAVE show status of the unit as well as current security system status. The green LED will indicates AC power. The yellow LED indicates that the wireless siren is currently transmitting a status signal. The red LED will light up when the security system is armed. The red LED is also used during the RF link test to show poor RF signal strength back to the wireless receiver.

The Honeywell 5800WAVE is learned into your Honeywell wireless security system using a programmable House ID. Program a House ID code into your security system and then set the 5800WAVE DIP switches to match the House ID. You should set the DIP switches before plugging in the wireless siren.

The wireless siren is powered by a normal AC wall outlet. You should choose an outlet that has both top and bottom plugs open as the 5800WAVE will cover both plugs when installed. A mounting screw should be installed through the mounting screw hole and into the actual wall outlet cover plate to hold the wireless siren in place. The 5800WAVE does have a backup battery supply to provide up to (12) hours of use during a power outage.

The wireless siren does not take up a wireless zone if you are using the 5800WAVE without supervision. Therefore, you can add as many wireless sirens as you’d like to your wireless home security system. If you do want to supervise the device for tamper, AC loss, low battery or RF signal strength, you would need to program a wireless zone for supervision using the siren’s serial number.

The SIXSIREN siren can produce sounds of up to 85 dB, which is the same as the Lyric's internal sounder as opposed to the 5800wave siren has an audible output of 77.3 dB at a distance of ten feet (95 dB at three feet). And you are correct, the SIXSIREN is easier to install.
Is the 5800WAVE louder than the SIXSIREN? If not louder, are there any other advantages for the 5800WAVE (I have a Lyric system)? It seems to me the SIXSIREN may be easiest to install for my Lyric system, but if the 5800WAVE were louder that would be important.
The Lyric ( is a Honeywell all-in-one wireless system that supports English, Spanish, French or Portuguese languages and would support all of your existing devices connected to your L5100 except for any wireless keypads or sirens (like the 5800WAVE you're working on). The Lyric also supports newer SiX Series devices as well and the SiXSIREN ( can be used as a replacement to the 5800WAVE. It supports WIFI but doesn't support phone line. However, we have a $10/month option (Self Bronze at the bottom of our sign up page that would provide you with Honeywell's Total Connect 2.0 service so you could remotely control the system from a smart phone or computer and receive text/email/push notifications from the system.
can be which is the most modern but that is communicated by wi fi and regular phone since where I live there is no cellular signal
We have the video on programming the needed 2-digit House ID code online at We also have an FAQ at that's for an L5210 but the process is the same on your L5100. I hope this information helps and please let us know if your siren works after setting this up properly.
If you have an L5100, you can't change the language but there was an L5100-LA model as well for Spanish/Portugese users. If you don't have that version now, we do offer newer systems that support alternate languages. Are you interested in upgrading your L5100 to one that supports Spanish?
you can change the language to the alarm to Spanish is in English and how the change will be modelo L5100
I'm from Puerto rico I had to order it to the United States the video was illustrative but I do not finish it and it is the problem. Their videos are very good but the siren to the panel is missing. the programming of the panel is the one that I do not find since in the video it is explained that they will put it in another video. saves where the missing part is for the Honeywell 5800WAVE: L5100 Programming

Hi Jose, Did you purchase it from us?
the module arrived. but I have a problem, it was connected to the Honeywell L5100 and programmed. but it does not sound if I move the sensor the panel sounds but the 5800WAVE. It does not emit any sound I think it came defective. do you have any support that could be just light two luses of the three all the time 1. green permanently on 2. turn on and off when connecting to the current 3. red color permanently on the equipment is new the 5800wave
It sounds like you were having a tamper trouble, not a low battery trouble. Well I am happy you got things figured out!
thank you for the assistance. I was able to remedy the issue by moving the tamper switch. Apparently if it is just slightly lower than the sensor, it causes a low battery alarm.
Let it charge for 24 hours. It does not come fully charged out of the box sometimes.
I just installed the 5800 Wave with the supervision option for tampering alarm. I get the notification that the alarm is low battery. This is a new 5800 Wave. Is this simply because the unit needs to charge overnight or should I get a replacement? Thank you
Thank you so much. Learned my lesson Buy from AlarmGrid from now on (the least I can do for your invaluable help)
As far as I know, there is no 5883, so I imagine they are sending you the appropriate 5883H. Also, Honeywell does not talk to or work directly with end users so you need to go through your seller for troubleshooting and warranty replacement. Because of this, it's important to purchase your Honeywell alarm equipment from a reputable seller. We offer all of the Honeywell security products on our site if you want to ever purchase something from us.
It was an eBay vendor. As a DIYer there is NO ONE at Honeywell to contact about questions or warranty issues..... My question still is: Is the Ademco 5883 same as the 5883H, thus compatible with the 5800WAVE? Thank you for YOUR support of this complicated system.
Who did you buy it from? They should certainly honor the Honeywell 2-year equipment warranty if it was bad out of the box.
Of course I did removed the 2 to install the one! The 5883H is DOA! No LEDs with 2 different harnesses (error 100) Also as the ONLY other board in the Vista 20P, just in case of power requirements. It will be replaced with the Ademco 5883. HOPE it is the SAME as the 5883H? THEY tell me it is!???
Did you remove the wiring to the 5881ENH and 5800TM? You can only have one wireless receiver connected to a VISTA-20P so if you did not, that would be why you are getting that error.
Well, the 5883H arrived. I installed it and now I have CHECK 100 RF RECEIVER Also NONE of the 5883H LEDs light up Is the new board DOA?
Yes, I agree the language in the guide is not nearly as clear as it should be but swapping out your receiver and 5800TM to a 5883H would be an easy fix.
Thanks Sterling for the speedy response. It is not clear at ALL (on page 1) that the combined board (5883H) WILL make it sound, while the separate ones (5881ENH with 5800TM) will NOT! Thanks for your wisdom, I will replace them with the 5883H right away.
The 5800WAVE is not compatible with the separate receiver / transceiver setup you are using (the 5881ENH and 5800TM). It is only compatible with an integrated receiver/transceiver such as the 6150RF or 6160RF (both keypads with an integrated receiver/transceiver) or the 5883H. You can read confirmation of this limitation on page 1 of the 5800WAVE installation guide -
5800WAVE NOT sounding! Vista 20P with 5881ENH & 5800TM House code correct (*24 and 5800WAVE DIP switches) Properly installed Zone 09, ZT 05, Input type 03, Loop 1, SN correctly transmitted NO tamper installed/required Fully charged backup battery NOTE: Red LED OFF while Disarmed NOT sounding when alarm goes off Any suggestions please?
No, it is only designed for indoor use.
Is the 5800WAVE waterproof for us outdoors ?
Happy to help and please do keep us updated if it continues to happen.
I agree it seems unlikely to have another in proximity and to have only had it go for a second or two. If it happens again I'll probably change the house code to rule it out. Was hoping you might have another idea or seen it before. Thanks for being so responsive!
It's possible another Honeywell wireless system in range of the siren, set to the same House ID, could trigger your siren but then it would have gone off for longer than a short time. Also, I would think it's unlikely for you to have another panel in range of your siren. You could try switching the House ID code in your system and on the DIP switches of the 5800WAVE to rule out this possibility.
It's the only thing in our bedroom that would make that kind of noise and it was pretty darn loud. The only thing I can think of is that something on the same frequency triggered it... But I have no idea how/why it would actually happen.
No, we haven't ever heard of that happening. Are you sure it was the 5800WAVE that made the noise?
Yes, it is a continuous siren sound like the LYNX Touch panels.
@sterling Have you ever seen this siren randomly go off for just one warble? We had it happen the other night and have no indication as to why.
Hi does this siren sounded? Is it the same as the Lynx panel with a continuous sound?
You just have to program a House ID code in field *24 and then set the DIP switches on the 5800WAVE to match that House ID code. There is no "enroll siren" mode. Once the dip switches match the House ID of the panel, the 5800WAVE should sound the alarm once the LYNX Plus is in alarm mode.
I would like to know how I can add a wireless siren to my system since I don't see the enroll siren mode on the lynx's plus
We look forward to working with you.
Okay, thank you for all your help. Will be registering with your alarm services soon I hope. Thanks
The green LED goes off when it's unplugged. There is no light to indicate AC loss but if you have the maintenance zone programmed, it would report as a Low Battery trouble. You may want to read through the installation guide - for more detailed info on the LEDs and maintenance zone.
My understanding is when it loses power or is unplugged that a light on the siren comes on or blinked indicating that. At least that's what I remember last time I unplugged it. Do I remember that incorrectly? Thank you.
It sounds like you simply unplugged the siren which caused the low battery alert. That's exactly how it's supposed to work so I'm not sure why you'd think there is a bigger issue at hand.
We were rearranging the room for guests and I noticed a light other than the green was on. (Fail to remember which, maybe yellow.) I unplugged it to move it to another outlet and it completely powered off. This is plugged into a décor outlet, so I don't have the magnet on it since it leans a bit. Since I have décor everywhere, it's not a simple process to move the siren when needed. I know the siren works as I didn't shut one door on time the other day and the siren went off. Makes me wonder if there is a bigger issue at hand.
What made you think the battery was low in the first place? If you have the siren maintenance zone programmed, it will report AC loss and low battery events as Low Battery troubles. Therefore, you may have just had a power outage and not a real low battery event.
Thanks. The battery was factory labeled 11/13, so one would think it would still be good. There was a surface charge on the battery when I pulled it out. When I put it back together the red light stayed on. I unplugged it and back in again and only the green stayed on. So it thinks the battery is charged, but maybe there is a bigger issue. Since it uses the same battery as the 5100, maybe I'll order the SHA for the 5100 and put that battery in the WAVE to see if that fixed the issue. Thanks.
No, they should last longer than that. The replacement is the same battery that the LYNX Touch panels use. There are three versions depending on the run time you need. They are all available at
My backup battery failed after less than a year, is that typical of these? What is the part number for replacement? Thank you.
