Honeywell 5808W3: L5200 Programming Smoke/Heat


Honeywell 5808W3: Honeywell L5200: Get Monitored! The 5808W3 ...


Sterling: Hi DIYers, Sterling with Alarm Grid here. And today, we're going to show you how to program a Honeywell 5808W3 wireless smoke and heat detector. We've shown you previously how to program a 5809 heat detector and how to program a 5806W3 smoke detector. The 5808W3 combines both types of protection, heat and smoke, into one device. And the beauty of this device is then that you're getting better fire detection, because if it gets too hot, if it gets above 135 degrees in the area, it'll trigger the alarm. And if the photoelectric smoke chamber detects smoke, it'll trigger the alarm. This is the most popular detector used for fire detection in homes and small businesses as you get the most protection. The stand-alone heats and the stand-alone smokes are used for areas where you may have heat when it's not a real fire or vice versa, smoke when it's not a real fire. And then of course, you would use the opposite detector to actually protect against the fire emergency. With this one, it would be used in any main area where either heat or smoke would be bad, and you'd want to know about it right away. The other thing that this device does is it can detect a pre-freeze condition. So it can also protect if the room gets too cold. And when it drops below 41 degrees, you would get your pre-freeze alert, and that can help very important environmental situations to protect against freezing pipes, which can be disastrous for a home. So you get a lot of types of protection out of this one unit. You can see the unit consists of the smoke detector head and then the mounting base with the tamper contact. This is what you use to mount to your ceiling or your wall. And then this detector snaps into place. You'll see it comes installed with this plastic dust cover, which simply protects the smoke chamber in case the house is under pre-construction or under construction where it might be kicking up dust. You don't want to get dust in this chamber, which would throw off the sensitivity of the smoke detector. So on the inside, to power the unit, we have a CR123A lithium battery, which is the same battery that we've used in a lot of the Honeywell wireless sensors that we've shown you so far. So this is a pretty commonly used battery with these Honeywell 5800 series, CR123A 3-volt lithium. It's got this little pull to connect battery tab. And when you slide that out, the positive end of the battery gets connection here, and our unit is powered up. So now that we know how the 5808W3 works, we're going to show you how to program it to your LYNX Touch L5200 system. Any programming that we're doing, we have to first go to Security, More, Tools, and type in our installer code. 4112 is the default Honeywell installer code and gets us to this screen where we can select Program. And from Program, we're in the System Programming, and we have an option for Zones. Zones is the tab that we use to program any Honeywell wireless sensor. Each device is a zone. However, we're going to highlight how some devices can use more than one zone. We're going to talk about that for the smoke and heat detection, versus the pre-freeze condition, the low temperature. So to learn in a new zone, ignoring Zone 1, which is the hard-wired zone, we hit the down arrow until we get to the next available new zone, Zone 16. We highlight it blue and click edit. And now, we're into the Zone 16 programming page. And the first thing we want to do before we select any changes here is to key in the serial number from the device. And on the 5808W3 you can see that the serial number is shown right here on this bar code sticker. You have an "A" for "Alpha" followed by the serial number 0988402. That's the particular seven-digit serial number for this device. I could key that in with the keypad here, or what might be easier is to just simply activate the device three times. On this 5808W3, we have two LEDs. This green one indicates proper functionality. The red one indicates when the sensor is in alarm condition. And then you'll notice there's a bigger hole with a plastic bridge over it. And on the other side is our test switch. So you see this hole here, and there's a metal base at the bottom. And if we stick our screwdriver down in there and press down and release, we get the panel to beep. That's activation number one. We're ready to go for activation number two. So we do the same thing, press and hold and release. Beeps twice, and you match up, and you can verify, 0988402 is the serial number displayed with the proper loop number. Loop number 1 is the loop that covers both the high heat, the 135 degree fixed heat detector, as well as the smoke detection. So if it gets too hot or if it senses smoke, both of them report on loop number 1. So to finalize and lock in the settings, we activate one more time, so press and release. And it kicks us out into this screen. So that was the auto-enrollment process to program that device. The next thing we have to select is our Device Type. Now, this is a smoke and heat detector. So I guess you could choose heat or smoke, but really, we're going to choose Smoke Detector. And once we highlight the device type, you'll notice it keys in available response type. On the smoke detectors, you have two options for response type. You have fire with verification or fire without verification. Fire and no verification, the very first time this device detects smoke it will activate the alarm. If you did fire with verification, the very first time it detects smoke, it'll set off this local sounder in this device but not activate the alarm at the panel or send any alarms through to any central station. If after a short period of time, another smoke alarm is activated at the device, then only at that point would the alarm go on to full alarm mode at the LYNX Touch. So that's a false alarm prevention method. We show you how that works on the 5806W3 programming video for the LYNX Touch L5200. I'm not going to show that here because we in fact always recommend "Fire No Verification." It's a more secure way to do the settings so that any smoke detection is instantly alerted at the central station. You can, of course, still have it set up with the central station so that we don't send the fire trucks immediately on that zone. So we can still use call verification to avoid false alarms. And that is how we prefer to do it as opposed to having the panel do the verification here, but you do have the option. So the next thing we'd want to do is name the device, all right? So you may have more than one smoke detector in the room or in the home. And instead of having to remember Zone 16 is the downstairs smoke detector, zone 17 is the upstairs smoke detector, we can simply . . . Machine: Up. Upper. Upstairs. Sterling: Simply select U, hit the down arrow until we get the word upstairs, and do Done. And now, when this zone is triggered, the panel will literally say, "Upstairs smoke detector." Alarm report is a toggle action, Yes or No. Set to No, the sounder would sound the alarm here and at the device but would not send the signal through to the central station. In our case, we do want our smoke alarms to go through to the central stationm so we're going to do Alarm Report, Yes. Chime is disabled on the smoke or heat. There's no chime action with this. That's more for doors and windows to alert you in the disarmed state if the door or window is opening. And then finally, Supervision should be set to Supervised. What that means is the panel will check and look for this device every 12 hours. If the device comes back saying, "I'm not there," or the panel doesn't see a response from the device, you would get a supervision trouble on Zone 16. And you would know that you've either installed this too far from the panel, or somehow, there's been interference in the home, preventing this device from talking back to the panel. So this supervised option will tell you in advance when you have any sensor issues. So we always recommend Supervised for any protection zones. We save those settings, and we now have our upstairs smoke detector. If we get the high heat, the 135 degrees or above, or the smoke detection, it's going to sound the alarm.
