Honeywell 5800MICRA: L5200 Programming


Honeywell 5800MICRA: Honeywell L5200: Get Monitored! The ...


Hi DIY-ers. Sterling with AlarmGrid here. Today we're going to show you how to program a Honeywell 5800MICRA Wireless Recessed Transmitter. This 5800MICRA can be used both in a window or a door. It says that it's designed for the vinyl windows just because it's got a very thin depth, so you don't have to drill very far when you're installing in to your window frame or your door frame, but it doesn't mean it can't be used in a door. This unit consists of three pieces. You have your contact, you have your circuit board, your battery connector, and then this red length here is your antenna, it's your wireless antenna for the device. It's got a little end cap here so that once the battery is installed it holds it into place. And then it has the corresponding magnet which, when the door or the window is closed, would be in line with the contact, keeping the zone happy and the sensor ready to go. And as soon as the door opens, it would activate the zone. If the system is disarmed, that would trigger a fault indication for whichever zone is programmed, and if the system is armed, obviously that would be a full alarm. So, before we go ahead and program the sensor, we need to use the included battery, which is a Panasonic CR1620, it's a little coin cell three volt lithium battery, and it installs inside the sensor. So, pull back the end cap and you can see there's a plus or positive indication on this contact here, and all you do is you, battery facing up, positive up, you slide it into place. There's no snapping into place. If you continue to slide, it'll come out the left side, so just keep it nice and centered in the middle and then you slide down your end cap and snap it into place so that the battery won't fall out, you know, if the door is getting slammed, or the window is getting slammed. This piece would get drilled and inserted into the frame, not into the moving door or window, into the frame, and then this magnet can either just affix to the moving door or window. Let's say it's a window that slides up, you would mount that into the bottom edge of the window, this would go down in the frame, when the window opens it faults, when it comes down in line, it's back to ready. Same idea on a door frame, you would have this piece opposite side to the hinge, and then this magnet would go on the door. You may have to inlay this into the door so it sits flush in the door and doesn't keep the door from closing. But this type of sensor is great for when you want to recess the contact so you will not see it when the door is closed. Obviously a surface mount contact that goes on the outside of the door or the window would be a little bit easier installation, but then you see the contact when you're in the house. So when decor is important, the recessed contacts are a good option. We have the 5818MNL, as a recessed door and a window, and then we have the 5800MICRA door and window sensor. So, now that we know how the unit works, we can show you how to program it. First thing we do always is from the home screen, is we hit security, followed by more and tools. 4112 is our default installer code. We hit program and now we're in the system programming screen. Oops. System programming indicated by the system programming horizontal bar up at the top. To program our sensor, we go into zones and we scroll down until we get the next available zone indicated by the word new. New just means it's an open zone ready to take some programming. So, we go to zone 12 and we hit edit. Now we're in the zone 12 programming page, and we're ready to enroll this sensor. Just like with all Honeywell 5800 series sensors, there is a serial number indicated on the sticker for the device. You can see it says alpha 0488468. Ignoring the A for alpha, the seven digit serial number is what you would use to enroll this sensor to the panel, and what we can do is either type it in, or as we've shown you on most of our programming videos it's easier to just auto enroll the sensor by activating it three times. Now, on this 5800MICRA, you can see that this is an oval shape, the magnet is also an oval shape. Typically, with your door and window contacts, as long as the magnet is in line with the sensor, you're good to go. What's important on the surface mounts is that you're putting the magnet on the correct side where the read switch is. With this device, the read switch is actually going horizontal in line with these indicators on the device, and therefore, you just want to make sure that when you fix these to the door and the frame that you're not mismatching. You want the oval to be horizontal together, instead of one being vertical and one being horizontal, because then you won't get accurate faulting and restoring of the zone. So now that we have them in line, they're both the horizontal oval location, we just bring them together, that would be the door closed, and to activate the sensor, we would open our door. There's activation number one, the sensor's pulled away from the magnet and we hear the panel beep. We close the door again, and then we open. Now we get the double beep, along with the serial number, which we can see matches the serial number on the device. We get the loop number one, which is the accurate loop number when programming this sensor. So if you're going to type it in, you would always want to make sure we're selecting loop number one. With the auto enrollment process, another advantage of auto enrolling is that it auto-detects the proper loop, so you really can't make a mistake in that case. Finally, we close the door and reopen it a third time and now, the sensor, all of the settings that we just selected, are input onto the zone programming page. We have the serial number and the loop number, and we're ready to set up the rest of the parameters for this particular sensor. So we choose next device type, and you have some options preselected by Honeywell in here, and you would choose door or window. In this case, we're going to put it in a window, so we select window. We're going to put it in our living room, so instead of just having it say zone 12 window and having to remember that's the living room window, we can go into zone descriptor one... Alarm: Laundry. Sterling: ...hit L for the L words, oops, clear that out. Alarm: Laundry. Library. Sterling: Hit I. Now we go to the LI words, and then V. Alarm: Living. Sterling: Now we have living. We could be done there, but one more down arrow... Alarm: Living room. Sterling: ...will take you to the next available word in the LIV section, and living room is how we want it to read out. So living room window is what would be displayed and spoken when this device is activated. We have perimeter response type, and perimeter means instant alarm. If the system is armed and the window is opened, the alarm goes off right away, no delay. There may be times where you want a delay on a window, but I would say 90 percent or more of the time when you're setting up a window, you want perimeter response type, so we're going to leave that perimeter selected. And the last three questions we look at is alarm report yes or no. In this case, our system is monitored, and when this zone is activated we want the full siren to go off and we want the signal to send through to the central station. So that means alarm report yes. Chime is disabled, so if the window opened, the panel would fault, but it wouldn't beep at you or speak the word of the zone. In this case, we like that feature, we want it to chime, so if we highlight it, or select it, it will scroll through. There are numerous chime tones that you can choose, so you can kind of scroll through and choose whichever one you like best. We're going to leave it on the standard chime, which is beep beep beep, and we're good there. And then finally, supervision. Any sensor that's set to be supervised, the panel will check every 12 hours and see if it sees the device. If the device says I'm here and the panel gets that back, the panel's happy and it moves on to the next zone. Any zone that is not seen during that supervision check, you would get a trouble on the particular zone, and you would know that you either have a range issue or an interference issue or somehow the sensor's been damaged so that the panel's not seeing it any more. So we always want to have it supervised so you would know in advance if you ever had a problem with your sensor. So, now that we have all our selections as we would like them, we save it to lock it in. If we just hit the back arrow, we would have lost all that work. So, saving it locks it into zone 12. We can always jump back into zone 12 by clicking edit again, but in this case we're good to go. So we exit to the home screen and always before we install our sensor, we want to make sure that the programming we just did works. So, again, we put the magnet in line with the device, simulating the door being closed, and when we open the door... Alarm: Living room window. Sterling: can see that two things have happened. It displays not ready to arm, we have lost our ability to arm away or arm stay. That's so that you don't accidentally arm the system with a door or a window left wide open, and beyond that, we have this visual indicator of which particular zone was activated. So fault number 12, or fault on zone 12, living room window, is what's displayed and then we can see visually that, okay, we have to go close our window before we arm our system. Beyond that, you heard that when it first opened, the panel actually spoke the name of the zone. Alarm: Living room window. Sterling: That speaking of the name of the zone is because we have voice and chime selected to be on. All right, so if you had those off, it might not speak, you might have just heard the beep beep beep or if you didn't even have chime on, nothing would have happened. But in that case, we've accurately programmed our 5800MICRA Wireless Recessed Transmitter and we know that it works.
