Honeywell 5800PIR RES: GC2 Programming


This explanation is designed to lay out the process of programming your Honeywell 5800PIR RES to use with a GC2 unit. Honeywell 5800PIR-RES: ...


Hi, DIYers. Sterling with Alarm Grid here. And today, we're going to show you how to program a Honeywell 5800PIR-RES Residential Wireless Motion Detector. This is the most popular Honeywell motion detector available. It's the one that's included with all the Honeywell wireless security system kits, but it is able to be paired to a 2GIG Go!Control because the Go!Control wireless receiver works on the same 345 MHz radio frequency range that a Honeywell sensor uses. So the 2GIG panel will work with 2GIG sensors and also, without needing anything else, it will work with Honeywell sensors. So we are going to show you how to go ahead and program your 5800PIR-RES to your 2GIG Go!Control. Just like with all our system programming, we can go through Security, Menu, Toolbox, or the same option is a hotkey, Go!Control. We do our installer code 1561 and we hit system configuration. Now, we are on Q1, with a 2GIG panel, if you've done Honeywell programming, this is a bit different. It's question based programming. Question number one is for your wireless sensors. The 2GIG Go!Control supports up to 48 wireless sensors and we have not yet programmed any wireless sensors to our panel. So we are on available slot number one and we are going to go ahead and choose that option by hitting the down arrow. Now we're on a sensor 1 type. Just like on a Honeywell system, this is the response type field where you are telling the system what device are we programming and how should this device respond. With a motion detector, we want it on in Away Mode, off in Stay Mode. So there's two available response types that will do that. One is 04, interior follower, and one is 10, interior with delay. If your motion looks directly at a door that's programmed with entry/exit one, which means it's a door you use when it's open when the system is armed, then you need to have interior with delay. That means this motion will not activate an alarm without an entry delay anytime it's triggered. So even if your door is not open and someone axes through your wall or breaks in through a roof or somehow gets in without violating any sensor first, then the motion won't sound the alarm right away. It would wait until the programmed entry delay period times out then you would have your alarm. So interior delay is when you have it looking directly at a door programmed with delay. However, if it's not looking directly at one of those doors, interior follower is a more secure and better option and this is the option that most wireless motions will use. Interior follower means it's going to be an instant alarm. As soon as the intruder passes in front of the motion, it will be an alarm right away. However, follower, that means if an entry/exit zone is triggered first, it will then follow the delay. So let's say this is in your living room and you enter your front door, you round a hallway, you pass through your living room to get to your keypad. If this only did a full alarm at all times with no delay, you'd have a false alarm every time you come home. With interior follower, the door opening is not triggering the device, but once you walk through the living room the panel, because it was put into delay mode by the front door, then the motion knows to follow that same delay. So you would not have an alarm as you pass through the motion to get to the keypad. Most motions get interior follower, motions that look directly at the door that's a delayed door then they don't have time to follow because the door opening is actually triggering the motion, so there's where you'd use zone type 10 or sensor 1 type 10, which is interior with delay. So we're going to go follower, and it's asking for the equipment type, which is motion. And if we hit the down arrow again, they actually want the equipment code and that's the specific model number of the device we're using. So if we scroll past the 2GIG stuff, we get to Honeywell stuff which is HW, and you can put HW PIR 5890 even though though it's a 5800PIR-RES. They haven't updated their equipment codes with some of the newer sensors. So you can do existing motion to call it more generic since it's not technically a 5890 or because this operates very similar to a 5890, you can go ahead and just choose HW PIR 5890. For me, I don't ever like to tell someone in the back end that the device is something that it's not, so I'm just going to choose existing motion detector. You hit the down arrow and now we have to enter our serial number. Serial number is on the back of the motion. If we were to pop the cover on the motion, it's on a sticker on the inside as well. We can type our serial number in or my personal preference and what I always urge our users to do is to do Shift, followed by Learn. Now we are waiting for an RF sensor transmission. I have already pulled my battery out because on the 5800PIR-RES, it's got a unique feature to preserve the battery. If the system is disarmed and the sensor is faulted, it puts the sensor to sleep for three full minutes. And it won't wake back up until that three minute period expires and then its ready to fault again. That's so you don't drain the battery as you walk throughout your house. However, because of that, it can make it kind of hard to learn it in by faulting the device, because now we're waiting. Is it sleeping? Is it not sleeping? Waiting three minutes. It takes some times. If we insert the batteries fresh as if its a brand new install, you can see this light come up and this LED will flash at you for a few seconds until it goes silent. Then the unit is actually on. This is called the Power On Stabilization Period. And it's kind of stabilizing the PIR, Passive Infrared Technology, on the inside of the sensor. Once it's done with that sequence by faulting or waving our hand in front of the motion, we should be able to auto learn the serial number into the zone. So we are just going to wait for this period to time out. I believe it is about a minute where we have to wait here. Now that the LED has stopped, the next fault, just me moving very slightly, triggered it. We can see 0463852. When doing auto enrollment on a system that has other sensors in the house, it is very important that we verify that this number is the same as this number. If someone in the house went to go open a door, they could jump in ahead of the motion and program a different serial number and we would have an issue because now we think its programmed, but it's not. As long as we know we're the right serial number, we know that it's this device, and this device only that we're programming. We are faulting it as I move it that is why you keep seeing these transmissions received. Every single time, we are seeing the same serial number that means no one else in the house is tripping anything and the motion should be good. So if we hit OK here, we are back to the sub-question for entering the serial number and we can advance by hitting the down arrow. Once we hit the down arrow, it's asking, "Is this a brand new motion or is this an existing motion?" You can see here, we have screw holes for mounting. This device has been used on a prior installation because we had this LYNX Touch panel before we had this Go!Control, so we are going to go ahead and choose that it is an existing device. That goes to your monitoring company so that they know, is this a device they sold you or is it a device that you had previous, helps them when troubleshooting the device. It's always good to let them know the right status of the device there. Now we have loop number. Any motion detector that's a 5800PIR-RES should be programmed as loop number one. And if we hit the down arrow, we have a dial delay. And this would tell the system to hold alarm transmissions from this device for the preset dial delay period until that period times out, then it sends the alarm to the Central Station. We always recommend disabling this device so that alarms from this device go to the Central Station right away. Hit the down arrow and we are on the Construct RF sensor 1 voice descriptor. This is our living room motion. So to do that, we are going to go ahead and hit Insert, living off of our voice descriptor sheet, which is the available words in the 2GIG Go!Control library. We can go ahead and see that living is 133 and then hit Insert. Room is 187. Insert again. Motion detector is 147. You can continue to put up to a total of five words. If two words are showing in one highlighted slot, that's only counting for one word so we could still give it two more descriptors, but we only have one motion in the living room so this descriptor is as good as we need it to be. We hit the down arrow to lock it in. This is on the back of your Quick Programming Guide that comes with the 2GIG Go!Control and we also have this information on our website So now we are asked will this sensor report. Report references Central Station monitoring. Do we want this device to go to the Central Station? Typically if its a protection zone, yes, you want it to be enabled if your monitoring so that alarms from the motion will go to your Central Station for monitoring purposes. Finally supervision. Always when using wireless protection zones you want to have it supervised. That will make sure that low battery or range issues from the motion will be reported by the panel so that you know in advance that you have to change the battery or relocate a sensor or make a change to your environment so that you have a good wireless transmission between your sensor and your panel. Hit the down arrow to lock that in. Chime is the next question. We don't normally recommend doing chime on a motion especially with the battery saver feature, that chime wouldn't even work really well. Without the battery saver feature or even with it, you're just going to hear annoying chimes as you walk throughout your house so that's why we don't normally recommend chime on a motion. If you hit the down arrow, we are on our summary screen. We can verify that all the programming we did is right. We have an interior follower so the motion is turned off automatically in stay mode and active in away mode. It is a motion detector. It's an existing motion detector with a serial number and a loop number of number one. Our dial delay is disabled so that alarms go through to the Central Station right away. We have our good voice descriptor, living room motion detector. And if we hit the down arrow again, we can see we've enabled monitoring reporting. We have an enabled low battery and supervision or range supervision. And finally we have disabled chime. If we hit skip and end and then exit, we have locked in our 5800PIR-RES programming to our 2GIG Go!Control. The panel goes dark because it reboots anytime you make programming changes, save them and exit. After a few seconds, we are going to hear "Disarm, ready to arm." And after a few more seconds, we are going to see our screen and assuming we are still in the walk test period, which is 10 minutes after you first put the battery in, when we wave our hand in front of it, we can see the guy in the house and we can see living room motion detector open. And that would let us know, "Okay, you are not going to be able to arm it until the motion stops." Now we know we have properly programmed our Honeywell 5800PIR-RES to our 2GIG Go!Control.
