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.
