Honeywell SiXCOMBO - Wireless Smoke, Heat and CO Detector Reviews
Submitted on 05/18/2020 Alarm Grid
The Honeywell SiXCOMBO is a combination smoke, heat, and carbon monoxide sensor designed for use with the Honeywell Lyric Alarm System. This is a fantastic combination sensor that is recommended for any Lyric owner looking to achieve fire and CO detection in one single device. This is a very versatile and effective life-safety sensor, and it can certainly make a great addition to your Lyric System. That is why it receives 5 Stars from Alarm Grid.
There are many things we like about the Honeywell SiXCOMBO. For one, it combines both a smoke and heat detector and a CO detector into one convenient device. This way, you will not need to have two separate devices on your wall or ceiling for smoke and CO detection. The Honeywell SiXCOMBO is one-go-all-go, and other SiXCOMBO and SiXSMOKE devices on the same system will also begin sounding once one is activated. The sensor allows for easy auto-enrollment using the SiX Programming feature. The sensor has its own built-in 85 dB sounder for alerting building occupants. It uses 128-bit AES encryption for enhanced wireless security. We also like the fact that the SiXCOMBO has a great build quality.
There are some downsides for the SiXCOMBO that should be considered as well. The sensor will need separate zones for each function (smoke, heat, and CO detection). If you want full functionality for the device, one zone will not be sufficient. Since the SiXCOMBO is a CO detector, it only has a limited product life. In this case, it must be replaced after ten (10) years of use. And like any wireless sensor, you will need to replace the battery on a periodic basis. But overall, these downsides are relatively minor, and they do not stop us from giving the SiXCOMBO a perfect 5 Star rating.
Good: Multiple Functions, One-Go-All-Go, Auto-Enrollment, 85 dB Sounder, Encryption, Great Build Quality
Bad: Requires Individual Zone for Each Function, Limited Product Life, Requires Battery Replacements
Bottom Line: 5 Stars
