Wireless Thin Door Sensor and Window Sensor
This wafer-thin sensor is a discreet, reliable way to protect any home. For those concerned with the aesthetics of their security system, the 5811 is unobtrusive. Its 150 foot RF range is slightly less than its more bulky counterpart the 5816, but it works at a distance that is far enough for use in almost any home.
Honeywell's 5811 is the most discreet wireless door and window sensor available. When installed on a door or window frame, the Honeywell 5811 wireless thin window or door sensor is nearly invisible. The 5811 sensor protects a single opening from intrusion and when programmed to a Honeywell alarm control panel will use (1) wireless zone. We recommend installing the wireless sensor on the door or window frame and the included magnet on the actual door or window. The magnet needs to be installed next to the 5811 sensor along the side that has the (2) magnet alignment locator tabs and can be no further than 3/4" from the 5811 door sensor or window sensor. Use the included double sided tape for easy do-it-yourself installation. Mounting hardware is also included if you would like to make it a more professional installation.
The Honeywell 5811 wireless door and window contact from Honeywell has a wireless RF transmitting range of 150' nominal. If the 5811 contact is too far away from your Honeywell wireless alarm control panel or wireless receiver, it will report an RF supervision loss error. You would then need to add a Honeywell 5800RP wireless repeater or relocate the 5811 window and door contact. Sometimes a few inches can make a big difference when testing the transmitter's wireless range.
The Honeywell 5811 door sensor's battery is included and provides (4) years of battery life. When the 5811 transmitter's battery is running low, it will trigger a low battery signal to the Honeywell alarm control panel so that you know to replace the battery of your wireless door sensor or window sensor. Alarm Grid's central station will also call you to notify you that your Honeywell 5811 sensor has a low battery if you are signed up for alarm monitoring services. If you are signed up for Alarm Grid's AlarmNet alarm monitoring service with Total Connect service, this low battery message can be sent out as a direct email and/or text message.
