In this video, Jorge shows users how they can find the Serial Number for a Honeywell 5800PIR-RES Motion Sensor. The Serial Number is used for having the system recognize the sensor. It can be manually entered into the programming field, or you can auto-enroll the sensor to have it appear on its own.

Every wireless sensor has a Serial Number. This piece of information is very important, as it tells the panel where the signal should be coming from. If the Serial Number is not provided or is entered incorrectly, then the sensor cannot be used with the security system. That is why finding the Serial Number for the 5800PIR-RES Motion Sensor is extremely important.

If you need to quickly locate the Serial Number, the easier option is usually to just check the white sticker on the back of the sensor. The white sticker will display a bar code along with a seven-digit number. The first three digits will be separated by a dash. This seven-digit code is the Serial Number. One way to learn-in the sensor is to enter this seven-digit code into the Serial Number field of zone programming. You do not need to enter the dash. However, you must be very careful to ensure that the code is entered correctly.

However, most users will find the Serial Number by auto-enrolling the sensor. This process will work even if the original white sticker has been previously removed. Auto-enrolling the sensor is recommended, as it will prevent the user from making a mistake when entering the Serial Number. Auto-enrollment also confirms to the user that the system is recognizing the sensor successfully.

Once you have put the panel into its wireless enrollment mode, fault the sensor by waving your hand in front of it while it is powered on. Repeat this process a second time. The panel should beep twice, and the Serial Number will appear on the screen. Faulting the sensor a third time will auto-enroll the device.


Hey, DIYers. I'm George from Alarm Grid. Today, we're going to be going over how to find the serial number on a 5800PIR-RES. So first of all, just to start off, the 5800PIR is a passive infrared motion detector that has pet immunity capabilities. So this is actually, the range of this is 35-by-40 feet. It transmits at a 345 megahertz frequency, which means Honeywell systems and 2GIG systems, the GC2, GC3 both work with these alarm systems. So any wireless Honeywell system, even if you have a wired Honeywell system that has a wireless receiver will work with this and so will 2GIG. Now, the serial number, if you guys are looking at getting the serial number in order to program it in, there's two ways of doing it. The first way is by looking at the sticker that's on the back, and I'm going to get a zoom in of this in a second here. And then, just in case this sticker ever falls off, just remember, there's also, give me just one moment here. Let me open it up. There is also a second sticker on the inside. Yeah. It's going to be the same sticker that's on the back plate. But yeah, there's another sticker that's on the inside as well. And again, if you guys do happen to lose both stickers. If they just become undone or anything like that, then that's where the second way of finding the serial number is going to come in handy. The second way is to actually enroll it into your panel using the Auto Learn feature. You can't manually type in the serial number because you won't have it. So you're just going to do the Auto Enroll feature. To do that, I'm going to be actually demonstrating it on the L7000. So the first thing we need to do is get into programming mode. I'm going to go ahead and-- this is the arming screen. If I go to the home screen, you're going to see these three options. You're going to want to hit Security. Then, on the bottom right-hand corner, hit More and that brings up the Tools icon. I'm going to hit Tools. And it's going to ask me for a code. You need to enter in the installer code. My default is 4112, all right? Default installer codes for Honeywell systems are 4112. Now, yours may be different if you or your monitoring company has changed it. So make sure you use the correct code accordingly. If you used the correct code, it will take you to this screen right here, the programming screen. I hit Program. I'm going to go to Zones. I hit Edit-- or I'm sorry. I had Add New. And then once I'm in this screen, I'm going to go to Serial Number. Once I'm in this Serial Number screen, I have now put the panel into a learning mode. So I'm going to go ahead and plug in the battery to my Motion. I'm going to close the cover. Now just a little tip for whenever you guys are closing the covers-- try to do the top first. As soon as that's locked into place, swing it down, and it locks into place. All right. Now, the Auto Learn feature, we actually have to trip the motion. So what that means is I'm just going to place the motion down here. And once the motion detects me three times, you're going to-- every time that the motion detects me, the L7000 will give a beep, beep, beep, confirmation, and it will slowly start adding in and auto learning the sensor. So it's going to first acknowledge you. Then it's going to learn in the serial number. And then it's going to give you the loop number, and it's going to back you out to the main programming screen. So let me just see here if I can get this motion to trip. So right now, it's in a red blinking mode. For the first, I think, it's-- yeah, for the first 10 minutes after the-- and as you see, the L7000 is noticing me. So is the Motion. But this motion is going to have-- that red blinking light is going to be on for 10 minutes. As soon as you plug in the battery, it goes into a 10-minute test mode or walk test, which is beneficial for you guys who are installing it. If you guys remove the battery and add it back in, the light's going to blink anytime it detects you. So if you guys are walking around the house, making sure that it's covering all the areas, just remove the battery and plug it back in, and it'll go into a 10-minute walk test mode. Now, as you saw, as I put it there, and as I was moving, it was detecting my motion. So it actually went ahead and entered in all the information into the L7000, just like I said it would. And if you look at the serial number on there, it should match up with the serial number there. 0809042. Yeah. So those serial numbers match up, and that was the Auto Learn feature.
