The Honeywell SIXCT is the first fully encrypted, bi-directional wireless door/window contact. Designed for the release of the Lyric Controller, the SiX series sensors communicate using 2.4GHz WIFI signal and offer 128-bit AES encryption for increased protection against RF jamming and hacking. Traditionally the 5800 series sensors were limited to 200 nominal feet for maximum RF range. The SIXCT offers up to 300 feet of wireless range back to the Lyric and in some cases even more!

Similar to the 5816, the SIXCT offers two functions. There is a built-in reed switch for wireless protection and a pair of screw terminals inside the device designed to integrate a wired contact. You can setup two separate zones or choose just one. The most common application is the fully wireless option. The reed switch inside the sensor uses the included magnet to protect a single door or window wirelessly. There is a maximum spacing gap of one inch between magnet and reed switch. This means when the door/window is closed the magnet must be within this distance. You can also hard wire a Normally Closed (NC) contact to the SIXCT. This can offer the ability to integrate overhead garage door contacts, steel door contacts and more.

Traditionally these functions were mapped to loop numbers (i.e. loop 2 on the 5816 used the reed switch and magnet), but now they are labeled by function on the Lyric. Instead of loop designations it is now called "service." The wireless function should be mapped to "Reed Switch." The wired contact should be programmed to "Terminal Block." If these functions are set improperly the zone will not work properly and result in all sorts of issues. First troubleshooting step with faulty zones is this setting.

The SIXCT is powered by a 3VDC CR123 battery (one included) and optimized to last five years on a single battery with typical use. The supervision on this sensor includes tamper alerts, low battery and even RF signal strength. The SIX series line is the first to offer up to date battery levels and RF signal at the alarm panel and Alarmnet for your alarm company. The SIXCT also has its own software that can be updated in the form of a firmware update as new technology develops.

All in all, the SIXCT combines the dynamic features of the 5816 in terms of functionality and reliability with the future-proof developments of Honeywell's SiX Series technology. Forget about worrying about your wireless alarm system being hacked. The SIXCT is a compact solution to a growing concern around wireless alarm system hacking. Forget the wires and jump into the future without sacrificing your security and "peace of mind."


No, there is no outdoor rated SiX Series sensor at this time but you could use the 5816OD ( ) as the 5800 Series sensors are compatible with the Lyric systems as well.
Is there an outdoor rated version of this sensor?
Do you mean with the Lyric System? The SiXGB and the 5853 would both work.
Are there any glass break sensors that will work with this system?
Currently we're waiting on the release of the SiXSMOKE but there hasn't been any other announced updates or changes to the Lyric panel or other SiX devices coming that we've heard about. They will be releasing a non-touch screen version of the Lyric they are calling the Lyric Gateway.
Like redesigning their products just as they are doing with the sensors. Like are any physical changes coming to the keypad/control panel or any other product in the Lyric suite?
What do you mean by product revisions?
Thanks. Was there mention of any other product revisions?
The smaller SiX sensors were just mentioned way back when we were first doing the training for the Lyric beta program. We haven't heard any updates since then so we don't expect a smaller SiX contact out for awhile but we will certainly be posting about them once we have more information. As for the question on the smokes, as the wireless SiXSMOKEs are interconnected (when one goes off, they all go off), they should meet the building code even if the code is written to say you need to use wired smokes. Fire Marshalls in FL are extremely strict and even they have been approving these smokes once it's been explained to them how they work.
Hi...I've been really interested in the Lyric Security System but haven't found a dealer in St. Louis. Still learning about the system and this is the first I've seen about new smaller sensors. Is there a source for this news? Are there any other product revisions coming soon? Think they'd ever offer a hardwired smoke sensor? They're required by code in St. Louis and I imagine that's the case in most cities.
No, we haven't heard anything about newer SiX Series devices as of yet.
Any updates on the new smaller sensors?
That is correct. We are still anxiously awaiting word on when the smaller SiX contacts will be made available.
I assume we don't yet have an idea when the smaller SIX sensors will be available? I went ahead and ordered the 5811s since these are so large. But I would prefer to the have the encryption.
