The Honeywell 5808W3 is a wireless heat and smoke detector. The 5808W3 utilizes a photoelectric smoke chamber for smoke protection as well as a temperature sensor that can detect high temperatures (135° F) and low temperatures (41° F).

When the 5808W3 wireless heat and smoke detector is first powered up, the red and green LEDs will blink simultaneously once every (5) seconds for approximately (20) seconds. After the power-up sequence is over, the smoke detector's green LED will blink once every (10) seconds to indicate normal functionality. If the detector needs to be cleaned or replaced, the red LED will blink once every (5) seconds. When an alarm is triggered by the presence of smoke, the red LED blinks once per second. When an alarm is triggered by a thermal condition (greater than 135° F temperature) the red LED blinks every (4) seconds. If a freeze condition is detected (less than 41° F), the red LED will blink once every (10) seconds. Finally, if a low battery condition is detected, the red LED blinks once every (45) seconds until you are able to replace the battery.

The Honeywell 5808W3 has a built-in sounder (85 dBa @ 10') that will be triggered by a smoke or thermal alarm. The built-in sounder and the security system's siren will both use temporal pulse sounding to indicate a smoke or fire emergency. You will be able to differentiate between a burglary alarm and a fire alarm because the fire alarm will pulse 3 times then pause while the burglar alarm will be a more steady siren. Smoke and heat detection will be turned on by default once you program the 5808W3 to your wireless security system. If you want to use the optional low temperature detection, you must program a separate wireless zone using loop 3.

You can use the test button located on the smoke detector head next to the red and green LEDs, to test the 5808W3. If you press and hold the test switch for (5) seconds an alarm will be sent to the security system. The test switch can also be used to silence the piezoelectric horn for (5) minutes during an alarm condition.


Feel better with this connected via Total Connect

While I haven't and hope to never actually have this go off, just the fact that this smoke/heat detector integrates into the alarm system and can generate an alarm and alerts via Total Connect in the event it did happen brings me a little peace of mind.

In addition to the smoke/heat detector this sensor also has a freeze detector as well that could alert us if the temperature gets too cold, and help prevent freezing pipes or anything else that goes along with extreme cold here in the Midwest during the winter months. Setup is quick and easy and you just need to program each of these features (fire/smoke, maintenance (batteries), and freeze warning)in as separate zones.

great fire alarms

my husband put in a security system and i made him add these fire alarms too. now i kno that if our house catches fire well b safe.

Thanks for your replies guys! This is a big selling point for me for these wireless detectors that I don't see clearly stated in the Honeywell brochures.
Hi Ben, If you have this connected to an alarm system, you can certainly cancel the alarm from the system's keypad. Of course, if the sensor has so much smoke in its chamber that it's still in alarm mode after you clear it, it may go off again. That would be a reason to use a heat detector ( ) in the kitchen instead.
That is exactly correct. If you have a false alarm with this smoke you can simply step over to the panel and disarm the system twice. This will clear the false alarm, disable the audible siren and clear the faulted zone from the system.
It is difficult to disarm your typical run-of-the-mill smoke detector. If it is alarming due to a smoking oven or burned food, it means scrambling up a foot-ladder and pull the battery, then remember to replace it when the smoke has cleared. Is this situation improved at all with this or any supervised wireless smoke detector? If it is alarming and I want to quiet it, can I simply clear the alarm on the panel, or doesn't it work this way? Thanks!
