The Honeywell 5898 is a wireless DUAL TEC® motion detector that uses both passive infrared (PIR) and K-band microwave detection technologies together at the same time to improve detection and reduce false alarms. The 5898 motion detector also offers pet immunity up to (100) pounds making it a very unique and valuable wireless sensor. While the dual technology motion detector is a more advanced device, it still blends nicely with the other Honeywell 5800PIR series motion detectors to keep a nice consistent look within your home or business.
The 5898 wireless motion detector is DUAL TEC meaning it uses (2) technologies to detect motion. The first technology is the same PIR technology used in most motion detectors that sense a change in infrared energy. The K-band microwave technology detects motion by using a Doppler effect. Motion detection by only one of the technologies will not trigger an actual alarm. The (2) technologies must both detect motion before the 5898 will send an alarm signal to your wireless home alarm system. The default detection range of the 5898 motion detector is 50' x 60'. When using the included pet immune lens, the detection range is reduced to 35' x 40'.
The 5898 wireless motion detector automatically tests its microwave technology at least once every hour. If the microwave supervision fails, the 5898 will operate as a PIR motion detector only and the LED will light up red to signal the trouble. As soon as the motion detector has its first PIR activation during the microwave failure, it will stop sending RF signals to the wireless alarm control panel. If the faulty microwave condition exceeds the control panel's RF supervision time, the system will generate a RF supervision trouble. If the microwave sensor does not restore on its own, you should remove and then reinstall the battery to solve the problem. If the 5898 is still showing a trouble, you will need to replace the wireless motion detector.
The 5898 DUAL TEC motion detector can also detect either abnormally low or high temperatures. Using dip switch (2), you can set the motion detector to pick up temperatures below 45° or above 95° F. You must program a separate wireless zone (loop 3) within your wireless alarm system's zone programming to utilize the temperature detection feature.
