Honeywell IS2500SN - V-Plex PIR Motion Detector Reviews
Submitted on 10/17/2019 Alarm Grid
The Honeywell IS2500SN is an excellent hardwired PIR motion sensor overall. But it is important to note that it is for V-Plex Polling Loop Panels only. This means that it can only be used with high VISTA-Series Panels, such as the VISTA-128BPT and the VISTA-250BPT. Really, any Honeywell VISTA Panel with a compatible V-Plex Polling Loop can use the sensor. For these panels, the IS2500SN really is an excellent hardwired device. It offers great performance for the compatible security systems.
As a Polling Loop sensor, the IS2500SN uses a 2-wire connection with the panel. These wires are for both data and current. Remember that a Polling Loop on an alarm panel supports both data and current. If you are comfortable working with Polling Loop Security Systems, then you will have no problem setting up the IS2500SN. And that is good news, because the sensor offers some tremendous features for a PIR motion sensor.
The coverage area for the IS2500SN is 50' by 60', which makes the sensor perfect for medium to large rooms, such as lobbies, dining halls, large offices, or even a large living room. It includes dual-slope temperature compensation for improved more accurate detection and false alarm prevention. You can even enable pet immunity for the sensor using its included pet-immune lens. However, using that lens will reduce the coverage area to 35' by 40'. You can choose from pet immunity of up to 40 lbs or up to 80 lbs.
Other great features for the Honeywell IS2500SN include four (4) sensitivity settings, a zero clearance bug guard, mirror look down, a tamper cover, and an automatic walk test mode. Bottom line, this is a great motion sensor to use for anyone with a compatible Polling Loop panel. It is robust, reliable, and supports some nice features. We give it a 5-Star Rating.
