Description

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.

The walls may have material that are interfering with the signal as 50 feet shouldn't be too far for a sensor. You could try a repeater or re-positioning the panel (or sensor) and doing some further testing. If you go with the 5800RP (https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/honeywell-5800rp ) just make sure you get the K10145WH transformer to power it (https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/honeywell-k10145wh ).
Thanks Sterling, but I've tried everything and the RF signal just won't go past the front door and out to the gate. It works perfectly in my hand, but not on the porch outside near the gate...even with the front door open. The signal just can't go past about 50' and the 4 walls. Could my unit be defective or is it likely the 4 interior walls diminishing the signal? Tim
At that distance, it should work reliably I would think. Are you sure you have it programmed properly? If so, does it work reliably when it's removed from the wooden gate and you have the sensor and magnet in your hand?
My 5816OD is installed on a wooden gate about 20' from my front door, which is 70' from the back of my house where my Lynx 7000 is located. Walls and doors are all wood/plaster construction and the line of sight from my Lynx to the 58160D requires the signal to pass through four (4) walls and the front door. My front door sensor (5800RPS) works fine, but the 5816OD frequently will not trigger when tested outside the front door. Do I need a repeater for only 90'? The specs say 200'.
These Honeywell RF sensors are designed to work with Honeywell wireless alarm systems so they won't work for your application unless you plan to install a security system in the home.
Thanks for the quick reply. We are hoping to install an indicator at the back door to show if all gates are closed. The purpose is to let anyone inside know if it's safe to let the dog out into the fenced area any time he wants out. So a chime or text alert will not help. Any other ideas how the 5816OD could help us?
Unfortunately the 5816OD does not speak directly to an LED sensor like that. The door contact will report back to your alarm panel which can be setup to chime and voice announce which gate is opened. You can also setup text/email alerts based on gate openings if desired.
I just installed a fence around my back yard. It has four gates, three of which are out of sight from the back door. If I install one of these sensors on each gate, can I get a simple red/green light indicator to mount above my back door with which the sensors will communicate to indicate whether all gates are closed?
Ah yes, I know exactly what you are talking about. I'm glad to hear it's all working for you now. Please keep in mind we also offer alarm.com monitoring services through our no-contract plans available online at https://www.alarmgrid.com/monitoring in case you are interested in switching to us.
Hey Sterling, alarm.com had my plan on a 'basic' monitoring service where activity on senors could not trigger phone notifications below a 5 minute range (only when a sensor was open > 5 minutes). I could never figure out how to send notifications the moment a sensor was triggered (ie. the moment a door was opened). I asked alarm.com why (via their help request) and they said that my service plan was not set up this way, but that they would "allow it" on my account? Funny thing though, one of the selling points from the installer/re-seller was this exact feature of "instantaneous" monitoring of sensors. In any case they did their magic on their end and all of a sudden I was able to set up notification alarms on their website (triggering "instantaneous" notifications on my phone). This was all tested with a door/window DW10 sensor. Whenever I opened this sensor, I was able to get phone notifications without triggering a police dispatch alarm (both when my system was in alarm stay and alarm away mode). I also set it up so that it would state the name of the sensor when the sensor activity was triggered. My end goal is to use the 5816OD on my back yard gate door and get notified via my phone and via the go control panel voice whenever the door is opened/closed. thanks again!
We're glad to have helped. What was the extra bit of support alarm.com provided?
Frank (and Sterling), Just wanted to return and say thanks for the help. I have not purchased the 5816OD (though eventually I will), but I definitely tried your suggestion on setup, but with a DW10 sensor (cheaper way to try this). It took some extra customer support from alarm.com, but it all works as I had originally hoped [a little slow with notifications to my phone sometimes, but not a big deal]. Thanks you both!
I see Frank already answered you so please test it and let us know if you need any further assistance.
Yes. When the gate is opened it will report a fault but will never trigger an alarm. You will have to setup the customized sensor open alert on alarm.com after you have programmed this way.
Thanks for the info Frank. Can I am assume that I would program the 5816OD sensor to function exactly like any indoor door sensor, BUT change ONLY the zone type to be type 23 vs type 01 (in other words all other programming settings stay the same)? Would that accomplish getting notifications to my phone (via alarm.com sensor notifications) and yet not trigger any alarms (ie police dispatching)? Thanks again and happy holidays!
Wow, very quick response. Thank you Sterling. Would the correct setting to modify be the "RF sensor reports" option on the Go Control panel program settings, and set it to "(0) disabled" (Not report to central station) ? I am assuming that disabling this option still triggers "alarms" to alarm.com and subsequently notifications to your phone's app? Thanks again and happy holidays!
Yes you can. You will want to set the zone to zone type 23 - No Response. You can setup a chime on it for local alerts. Then make sure you have this zone enabled for sensor open and/or sensor left open alerts...
Yes, you should be able to setup a zone to alert you on an opening right away without it having to go through to your central station.
I have a 2gig go control system (monitored through central security group ... viewed/setup through alarm.com)... I was wondering can I use the Honeywell 5816OD sensor to trigger notifications (to my phone via alarm.com app) when my back yard gate door is opened. I do not want it to trigger an alarm, but I would like to get notified if someone has opened it. I have setup up notifications on sensors when they are left open, but in this scenario I prefer to get notified immediately. I have several webcams I can kick off to see whats going on at that point. Any idea?
