Honeywell 5806W3: L5200 Programming


Honeywell 5806W3: Honeywell L5200: Get Monitored! They ...


Sterling: Hi DIYers, Sterling with Alarm Grid here. Today, we're going to show you how to program a Honeywell 5806W3 wireless smoke detector to a Honeywell LYNX Touch L5200 system. We showed you earlier a 5809 heat detector; and that only protects for heat, not smoke detection. This on the other hand only does smoke and no heat detection, so different applications require different devices. If you had a room where it got very hot, above 135 degrees which would activate our heat detector, we would want to use a smoke detector only so that if there was a real fire causing smoke, then it would activate with the smoke detector. This unit consists of a back plate with a tamper contact which mounts to the ceiling or to the wall. And then it has the smoke detector head which comes installed with a dust cover. This is just the plastic cover which says, "Remove before operation." It comes installed that way in case the house is pre-construction and you're going to be kicking up dust as you construct the home. It won't allow any dust inside the chamber with this cover snapped on. Very critical that you remove this before ever using it because this would prevent any smoke from getting into the sensing chamber. This is a photoelectric smoke detector. On the inside, we have a CR123A, 3 volt lithium battery. It comes with a battery tab which prevents contact from the positive side of the battery. To power the unit, we simply remove the pole to connect, and the battery is live, the sensor has power now. To enroll this device, just like with all Honeywell sensors, there is a seven digit serial number on this unit. The sticker looks slightly different but it still has the same convention. We have A for alpha, followed by a seven-digit number under our bar code. So that is our serial number that we use to program the device. To program on the LYNX Touch, we have to go 'Security' from the home screen, 'More', 'Tools', 'Enter installer code'. We have our panel still set with the default installer code which is 4112. You saw me typed that in. And now we have the option to select 'Program'. As soon as we hit 'Program', it goes from green at the top to the 'System Programming' in yellow indicating that we are now into the panel's programming options. We have a lot of selections up and down. What we want is 'Zones'. That allows us to program a new zone. Every wireless device with the LYNX Touch is typically its own zone. This panel supports up to 64 zones and then goes into some key five zones. And we just want to select our next available zone that we have which happens to be 'Zone 15' and we click 'Edit'. Now that we're in here, the first thing we want to do for zone 15 programming is to enroll our serial number. On the device on the head we have some LEDs. This flashes green periodically to indicate that it's working. In alarm mode, it would highlight with a red LED to indicate that this device was triggered. We have this hole with a plastic bridge over it. And on the opposite side of the chamber, we have another hole and on the base of that hole is an actual test button. And that's the button we want to use to enroll the sensor. So we can either key in this serial number, 0644669, or we can activate the device three times. I always prefer to auto-enroll it because it indicates that the sensor is working and prevents any user error when typing in the number. So if we press and hold down on the switch and let go, it beeps to indicate the sensor was activated. We do that a second time, now we have our serial number which we can verify, 0644669. It landed in properly. You can see it set it to loop number one, which is the proper loop when programming a 5806W3. And one final activation takes us back up to the top level, zone 15 programming page, and we're able to then set up the rest of the parameters for this zone. Basically, we want to choose 'Device Type'. When we did our heat sensor, we chose 'Heat Sensor'. When we do our smoke detector, pretty obvious, we use 'Smoke detector'. On the heats, we only had one available response type. That's the next thing we want to choose when we're setting up our life safety devices. So on the smoke detection, we have two options; Fire no verification, Fire with verification. We normally recommend 'no verification'. This has nothing to do with phone calls from the central station. A lot of people assume verification means they're going to call me before they send the fire trucks, no verification means they would send the fire trucks immediately. That's not what this programming is doing. This programming has nothing to do with how the central station will respond to your particular smoke detector. That's something you would talk to your alarm company about, how do you want them to respond to your zone. And of course they can set it up so they dispatch immediately or call and verify first depending on your property. So what this is really asking is how will the system respond to activations from this device. If we do no verification, the very first time that this device detects smoke in the chamber, it's going to set up the full alarm for a fire alarm. If we chose 'With verification', it ignores the first trip and only if there's a second trip shortly thereafter will it actually activate the alarm. So let's say this is in our kitchen. We would normally not recommend putting this in the kitchen. In fact, the heat detector is a great place for a kitchen because where you might have smoke when it's not a real fire, then the heat is better. But if we did put this in our kitchen and we're going to have smoke sometimes when it's not a real fire, the 'with verification' might be a good idea. If we get a little bit of smoke when we're cooking and we see this thing activate but it doesn't heat the full alarm, we can fan it out and make sure that the smoke doesn't stay inside the chamber. As long as it doesn't activate again, we've eliminated possible false alarm. Again, we normally recommend 'Fire no verification' because when it is smoke detection and life safety, we air on the side of caution and we air on the side of security versus false alarm detection, and this will give you a better indication of immediately when it detects smoke. if you know you're going to have issues with false alarm, or you know you've had issues with false alarm, you could also do 'Fire with verification'. I'm going to highlight that option just to show you how it works once we back out of the zone programming. In this case, we're going to assume we're going to be putting it in our kitchen that's why we're doing verification. Panel: Kitchen. Sterling: If we hit the 'K', the first available word in the library for 'K' happens to be kitchen. So we select 'Done', and we now have kitchen smoke detector. When this device is activated, the panel will speak those two words, "Kitchen smoke detector." So 'Alarm Report' is the next question that we answer. "Alarm report" yes or no. Yes means send the alarm to the central station, no says sound the alarm locally at the house but not sent through to the central station. We always want it to be yes. We want our device to be protected, our systems monitored, we want response when this goes off. Chime, you do not need a chime on a smoke or heat so you're going to leave that off. And then finally, 'Supervision'. That means that the panel will check and make sure that it sees this device every 12 hours. It will look for the serial number. If the serial number device checks back and says, "I'm here," the panel is happy. If for any reason it doesn't see this device, it could be too far from the panel, it could be some sort of interference in the house preventing the wireless range out to the device. Or if this device somehow was destroyed, you would get a supervision trouble and you would have an early indication that you have to address whatever issue is going on with the device so that it works when you need it. Now that we've selected all that, we save our parameters, locks it in, and we have our Zone 15 kitchen smoke detector. We exit to the home screen and we're ready to test our device. We're going to test to make sure that the sensor was properly programmed and we're also going to use this test as a way to show you what 'Fire with verification' does versus 'Fire without verification'. Again, without verification, activating the device sets off the panel. With verification the very first trigger is ignored, the second trigger would activate the panel into full alarm mode. This flashing green LED that you can see is just indicating proper power to the unit and that it will work when expected. So that's what these LEDs mean. This red light will light up once we activate. So on the device, you can see the chamber and you can see this hole with the plastic bridge over it and on the opposite side is our test button. So that is the button we want to press and hold to activate our sensor. So here we go, press and hold. We can see the red light is lighting up and the local sounder for the 5806W3 should go off. Press and hold, and there it goes. You can see that the 5806 device was sounding the alarm but the panel is not. The panel is ignoring this very first trigger. Now we let go, and if there was still smoke in the chamber, we press and hold again, that sets off the alarm. Panel: Disarmed, ready to arm. Check zone. Sterling: We've now cancelled our alarm but we can see that there is a fire alarm in the kitchen on Zone 15. So the very first activation triggered the local sounder, did not trigger the panel. The second subsequent trip shortly thereafter actually activated the alarm. So that's fire with verification. It helps avoid false alarms. Again, we normally recommend just to make it no verification and then we use the verification phone calls with the central station so that we can call the home and find out if it's a real false alarm or not and obviously only send the fire trucks when needed. Panel: Disarmed, ready to arm. Sterling: We wanted to show you how that 'Fire with verification' works so now you know those are the two ways to program a 5806W3.
