The Honeywell 5819 is a combination wireless shock processor, wireless window and door sensor and wireless transmitter all in one convenient wireless sensor. The 5819 has (3) distinct loops and each one must be programmed as an individual wireless zone within your Honeywell wireless alarm system's zone programming. The first zone is designed for a normally closed wired shock sensor loop, the second zone is for the internal reed switch and the third zone is meant for a normally closed wired contact loop. Therefore, you can use a single 5819 wireless transmitter to protect multiple types of break-ins.

You should use inertia type wired shock sensors (not included) to utilize the first loop (or zone.) The wired shock sensor must be connected to the transmitter's TB1 terminals and then mounted on the pane of glass to be protected. You could then also orient a magnet (not included) next to the transmitter on the side of the internal reed switch to protect the same glass from opening or shattering. Finally, you could also attach a normally closed wired contact loop to the transmitter's TB2 terminals to use the 5819 as a simple wireless transmitter to send alarm signals back to your Honeywell wireless home alarm system. The Honeywell 5819 can provide (3) types of protection with one wireless transmitter.

We recommend using one of the following inertia type wired shock detectors along with the 5819 wireless shock processor: Honeywell - 11WH or 11BR, IEI - 776, Ultrak - VS-2 or D4, Sentrol - GS611 or GS610, or Litton - SP3237. If you have a different model of wired shock detector, as long as it runs on less than 3VDC, it should be compatible with the Honeywell 5819 wireless shock processor.

The 5819 wireless transmitter has a nominal wireless range of 200' back to the wireless alarm system and is powered by a 3V lithium battery. The battery should last 3-5 years before needing to be replaced. However, if you are not using the shock sensor loop, it should be strapped out or else the battery life will be much less than 3-5 years.


Nope, the sensor you will want to use is the 5870API:
I need to add a wireless sensor in with my gun bags so the sensor will alarm when the bag is moved. Will this work?
Yes, if you have a 6160RF, your system has a wireless receiver you'd need to add a wireless glass break or shock sensor. The 5819 offers more options as it can wire into external shock sensors or door sensors in addition to being used as a shock processor and transmitter on its own. The 5800SS1 is a shock processor and transmitter in one device but doesn't offer the other external contact/shock options. Finally, the 5853 and SiXGB are actual glass break detectors (tripping when the frequency of broken glass is triggered as opposed to vibrations like the shock sensors) and we usually do recommend glass breaks over shock sensors to avoid false alarms. The SiXGB only works with the all-in-one Lyric systems though so you should try the 5853.
Thanks Sterling for your reply. Yes, I have the 6160RF keypad. Is that what you are asking?
Do you have an existing wireless receiver attached to your system now?
I have a Vista 20p panel and am looking to add some additional sensors. What is the difference between the 5819 and the 5800SS1. I could put either of them on the glass on the door. My scenario is a single door with glass on it in a small room. There is already a recessed door sensor but am looking to add some glass break protection. Would the 5853 or SIXGB make more sense?
The 5819 only supports one inertia style shock sensor per loop 1 input. Not because of the size of the glass, but because of how rapidly these type devices fault and restore. This is why it takes a special type of processor to support shock sensors in the first place.
Can I put 2 11WH sensors onto a single 5819? I've got a basement slider (with the 2 horizontal windows) that slide left or right. Just small pieces of glass (say 18"x20")
