The Honeywell 5816OD is the alarm industry's first wireless outdoor sensor. You can now protect your backyard shed or barn, your detached garage, your pool gate or your perimeter fence. The 5816OD outdoor sensor provides waterproof (meets NEMA4X water protection) and weatherproof protection in any temperature (-40° to 150° F). You can mount the 5816OD wireless outdoor sensor on flat and curved surfaces. We recommend using strap ties or cable ties (not included) when installing the 5816OD on a round surface like a fence or gate post.
The Honeywell 5816OD has a wireless range of 200' nominal from your wireless home alarm system and if you have a large property you can use a Honeywell 5800RP wireless repeater to boost the range even further. The 5816OD sensor is supervised so that if it is out of range from your wireless alarm system, it will transmit a RF supervision loss signal. The 5816OD can be used as a simple wireless contact with the magnet or it can even be wired to an external contact and act as a wireless transmitter. Make sure to caulk around the rubber wire seal on the back of the sealing cover to preserve water protection.
The 5816OD wireless outdoor contact has an extra wide magnet gap to accommodate the unique requirements needed for outdoor protection. When installed on wood, vinyl or plastic the magnet can be up to 1 3/4" from the 5816OD contact and up to 1 1/2" when installed on metal. The 5816OD outdoor contact can even be painted so that it blends into the mounting surface. Make sure to only use paint that is recommended for plastic.
