The Honeywell 5822T is a wireless, tilt sensor designed to protect garage overhead doors and basement tilt windows. When programmed to loop 3, the tilt sensor is most commonly used for protecting an overhead door. The unit should be mounted on the interior side of the overhead door with the arrow facing up, ideally on the upper panel. When the sensor is in a vertical position (perpendicular to the ground) it reports the zone as closed and when it turns horizontally (parallel to the ground) it reports as opened. Mounting it on the upper panel triggers a fault for partially open doors. When programmed to loop 1, the tilt sensor will transmit faults based on a wired normally-closed (NC) contact. There is a pair of screw terminals inside the tamper cover where the connections must be landed.
Garages and warehouse spaces can vary in terms of temperature. The 5822T is designed to function in temperatures ranging from 0 -113F degrees. If the space drops below 32F Degrees, we recommend mounting the sensor with screws because the adhesive tape may fail at these temperatures.
When using this device with a Honeywell LYNX Touch L5100 Rev. 6 or newer model (L5200, L5210 and L7000), there is specialized programming on zones 45/46-48. The Lyric Controller also supports these special features except the zones are slotted from 127 to 130. These zones are designed for garage overhead doors being protected with a 5822T or a 5816 door/window sensor. Essentially, the 'garage door' device type and 'garage' response type are designed to allow 'venting' and automatically map this zone to the entry delay period of 'Entry/Exit 2.' Venting is a terminology that describes the ability for an end user to arm the alarm system when a zone is open or 'vented.' Then when that zone is closed it becomes a protected zone. There is no time limit on the closure.
Mapping the zone to entry/exit 2 allows you to set a longer entry delay for the garage door in contrast to the other entry doors. This way the end user has more time to pull into the garage and disarm the system. Keep in mind, all of the features are only available on the Lynx Touch and Lyric panels. The tilt sensor will still protect a garage door for other compatible alarm systems, just does not include these specialized features.
The Honeywell 5877 wireless garage door relay offers a way to control the garage door. In tandem with the tilt sensor the 5877GDPK offers both control and status. They can purchased individually or together in the form of the Honeywell GDCK.
