Wireless Door Sensor and Window Sensor
The 5816 are Honeywell's most popular sensor. Slightly thicker than the 5811, this sensor's 200 foot range makes it the most affordable, reliable way to protect your home using a wireless setup.
The Honeywell 5816 is the most popular wireless door and window sensor installed today. The Honeywell 5816 is most recognizable by its distinctive ridges on the sensor cover. The 5816 sensor should be mounted on the window or door frame with the included magnet mounted on the window or door so that the transmitter's circuit board does not get rattled every time the window or door is shut. If you use the Honeywell 5816 as a window or door sensor, you should program the sensor as a loop (2). You also have the option to wire any normally closed alarm device to the wireless sensor and program it as a loop (1) to utilize the 5816 sensor as a wireless transmitter. You can even use both zones (or loops) of the Honeywell 5816 simultaneously.
A mounting plate is included with the Honeywell 5816 contact for easy mounting. You can mount the 5816 contact without the mounting plate but we recommend that you install the mounting plate to the window or door frame so that you can easily remove the 5816 window and door contact for easy maintenance.
When the cover is removed from the Honeywell 5816 sensor, a tamper alarm will be reported to the Honeywell alarm system. The 5816 window and door sensor will also report a low battery signal approximately (30) days before the included lithium battery completely dies so that you can replace the battery.
