Honeywell 5811 - Wireless Thin Door Sensor and Window Sensor Reviews
Submitted on 01/06/2013 Kevin
Bought enough of these to cover every window and door in my house that is easily accessible because they are thin, wireless, and was told by AlarmGrid they have great range. They were not kidding and these things work great.
I have had no problems with any of the sensors connecting to my Lynx 5100 system, which is centrally located, in my house. They are very thin and do not create eye sores to look at and I also found they work great on double-hung windows. I simply put the receiver on the lower pane and the magnet on the upper pane and now if either of the windows is opened the alarm will trigger.

Man Honeywell finally got it right with the 5811. I've never liked how the 5816s are so boxy so I've tried almost all of the smaller sensors. Problem is those sensors dont have the same wirelss range as the 5816. It's been a struggle to decide between a sensor that looks better or one that loses its connection from time to time. Now that they have the 5811, I swapped all my sensors out to these super thin sensors and I never have wireless range issues!
