The 5811PK10 is a 10-pack of Honeywell 5811 wireless door/window contacts. The 5811 is Honeywell's slimmest and most popular wireless sensor. The narrow, 1/4 inch profile makes this contact blend in with almost any door or window. The tiny magnet makes it possible to install these in tighter areas such as double hung windows. For being so compact, the 5811 does not sacrifice wireless range or battery life. The 5811 can operate up to 200 feet away from a compatible 5800 series Honeywell wireless receiver. The battery life is approximately 4 years depending on usage.

For those building out a new alarm system, the 5811PK10 is a great way to bundle savings and protect all your doors and windows. You can still setup secondary forms of intrusion protection in the form of motion detectors and glass breaks. However installing contacts on doors and windows is still very important.

The 5811 will communicate directly with any Honeywell wireless receiver with a VISTA panel and works with the LYNX Plus, LYNX Touch series (L5210 and L7000) and Lyric Controller. For those who own a 2GIG alarm system, the Go!Control panels including the recently released GC3 systems also support the 5811. The battery life and reliability of Honeywell wireless sensors are unmatched. This pack of contacts offers an affordable way to protect the perimeter of your home or business.

The Honeywell 5811PK10 is a ten (10) sensor pack of Honeywell 5811 Door and window Sensors. These sensors are smaller than their 5816 counterparts, while still retaining most of the features. The product has been discontinued by Alarm Grid, as the Honeywell 5811 is no longer readily available. However, the sensors will still work great if you happen to have any around. We are big fans of the Honeywell 5811, and we like the 10-pack if you really need a large number of these sensors. As a result, we give the Honeywell 5811PK10 a 5 Star rating.

There are many things to like about the Honeywell 5811PK10 and its Honeywell 5811 Sensors. The 5811 is a thin sensor, with just a quarter-inch profile. The makes it almost vanish when placed on a white background. The sensor has a roughly 200 foot range, which makes it suitable for most homes. Keep in mind though that large metal objects and other obstacles can reduce range. We also like the fact that the sensor is easy to program and install. This makes it a good option for DIY users. The sensor is compatible with nearly all 345 MHz security systems.

However, there are some downsides regarding the Honeywell 5811PK10. For one, it is discontinued, so you will be unlikely to find a new pack anywhere. The 5811 has been replaced by the Honeywell 5800MINI, which is an even smaller sensor. Like any wireless sensor, the Honeywell 5811 relies on a battery, and the battery must be replaced about every four (4) years. The sensor uses a CR2032 coin battery, and that could mean a trip to the pharmacy to pick one up if you are not prepared.

Overall, we really like the Honeywell 5811PK10, and it gets 5 Stars.

Good: Thin Profile, 200 Foot Range, Easy to Program & Install, Compatible w/ Many Systems

Bad: Discontinued, Smaller Sensors Available, Battery Must be Replaced Every Four Years

Bottom Line: 5 Stars
