Honeywell 5816: Program to a Honeywell L5100 Security System


Hi, DIY’ers. This is sterling
from Alarm Grid, and today we’re
going to show you how to program a Honeywell
wireless 5816 door and window sensor. The 5816 is the
most popular contact that Honeywell sells for their
5800 series wireless range. And it was the sensor that
comes in the L5100PK kit, which is a very popular LYNX
Touch security system kit. So the 5815 is made up of
a contact and a magnet. Two pieces. There’s an internal read
switch inside of that contact that works with the magnet
to protect openings. So doors, windows,
cabinets, things like that, you can protect
if it’s going to be opened. Door opens, magnet pulls
away, sensor will activate, and alarm will trip. So we’re going to show you
today how to learn in your 5816 to your L5100 LYNX Touch
wireless alarm control panel. So from the home screen,
what we’re going to do is press More, then
Tools, then we’re going to enter our
installer code. Our panel still has
default 4 1 1 2. Then you hit Program. And whenever you’re adding
any sensor, you go into zones. So that’s the screen
we’re going to be using. So zones. And you can see we already
have some sensors learned in. So we’re going to scroll down. And zone one is
the hardwired zone, so we always skip that
zone, unless we’re dealing with hardwired sensors. So we’re going to scroll down
to an available new zone. We’re going to go with 14. Highlight the zone. Toggles blue. Click Edit. And we are now on our
zone programming screen. You can see at the top
it shows you the zone that you’re working on, Zone 14. And there’s a few different
fields on this screen that we have to set up. The first thing we want to do
is enroll the serial number. So on the 5816, there
is a barcode sticker. It starts with A for
alpha, and then there’s a seven-digit number. This seven-digit
number is the number that we need to
program into the panel. So what we do is we click
in the serial number. We have a keypad. We can either type
in this number, or to make it even easier, you
can use the auto enroll mode. What you do is, once you’re in
this screen with the keypad, you can put the magnet
up to the sensor. Make sure it’s on the side
with the two hashmarks where the read switch is. That one first
beep, move it away. A second time, you
can see that it’s now input the serial number. The same number from the
sticker: 0 1 1 8 8 7 0. And it learned it in
with loop number two. And then the last
time we pull it away, it actually hard codes
those in and takes you back to the zone screen to
finish the programming. So it makes it a
little bit easier instead of having to type it in. Maybe if you already
have something installed from an old system, you can
just open an close your door three times to get it
learned into your panel without having to worry about
getting the serial number. So now that we have
those values in, the next thing you want
to do is name your zone. So instead of just
having the panel tell you that zone 14 was
tripped, you can know that this is our
sliding glass door. So you would go zone
description one, toggle in. You have a keypad here. And this is a library
of available words. So you can’t just start
typing whatever word you want. You actually choose
a letter, and it will scroll through available
choices for that letter. So we want sliding, so we hit S. S. And then we use the down arrow. Second. Second floor. Sensor. We’re scrolling through all
of the available S words. Service. Seven. 17. 70. And you can see
we’re in the Se’s. We can cheat and
skip ahead and hit L. Sliding. And it will skip right over
to an Sl word, which happens to be sliding, which we want. So we click Done. And zone descriptor two. This is the second word
we want to name it. So we’re going to do glass. So we hit G. Gallery. And again, we can
scroll through. Garage. Or we can just hit an L. Glass. Take us to the first
Gl word, which happens to be glass, which we want. We hit Done. And we have sliding glass. Now the next thing we
want to do is Device Type. So this is where you
tell the system what is the sensor I’m working with. Is it a door sensor, a
window sensor, or a motion? And when you choose the
sensor that it is, and we’re choosing door, not only will
it speak this as a third word– so it’ll be sliding glass
door, which is what we want. But more importantly than that,
by choosing the device type, when we go into the
response type option, it will limit the
response types. So instead of giving you every
different zone response type available, it cuts the list down
to the available zone responses for a door sensor,
which typically is Entry Exit 1 or Perimeter. Entry Exit 1 will
give you a delay so that when you
come to the door, you’ll have x amount of
seconds, typically 30, to get to the keypad
and turn it off before a siren
actually goes off. So you would use
that for all doors that you use when
the system is armed– front door, garage door, so on. If this is a back
sliding glass door, where the system will never– where you’re never going to use
that door when the system is armed– you choose Perimeter. When you choose Perimeter,
there’s no delay. If this zone was tripped, an
alarm will go off right away. So we’ve got our serial number,
our loop number, our zone description, our response type. And the last three options
are alarm report, chime, and supervision. Alarm report says,
do I want this to go to a central
station, yes or no? So if your system is
monitored, then you want to have that as a yes. Chime will let you
know that any time, even when the system
is off, that you open the sensor, the
panel will beep and say, sliding glass door. So you’ll know that
the door was open. So we’d like to have that
one on for doors and windows. And then supervised
is, will the system look to make sure that
it sees this sensor and that it’s not out of range? So you always want to
have that on as well. So this is all good. We click Save. It is now learned in as zone 14. And if we back out
to the home screen, making sure we say yes
when the panel asks us if we want to allow installer
to reenter programming, we go back to the home screen. So now that we
have it learned in, we’re going to demonstrate
that the sensor is working. Simply simulate a door opening. The panel faults. It shows fault 14,
sliding glass door. And it didn’t speak
it, which it can, because we have our
voice feature off. So if we restore it, goes
back to Ready To Arm. You can actually go to Settings,
turn the voice on, save it. And now when we open it, [BEEP, BEEP, BEEP] Sliding glass door. The panel says the
three words that we’ve got programmed in there. Panel’s happy. We’re happy. Zone is happy. So that is how you program a
Honeywell wireless 5816 door contact. If you have any questions

  1. Thank you. If you use the wired contacts as well, do you program that as an additional zone type 1, or is it the same zone, but gets reported as type 1?

    Thanks

    Thanks

  3. i have this switch, but for me to install it needs to be installed on the door and the magnet on the door frame. or can i use the loop 1? if so how can i used it? can you make a video explaining it? Thanks
     

  4. I have the 5816 door/window sensor and it works great, easy to setup. However, I'm trying to use a zwave door/window sensor from fibaro and it never register under the zone section. I manage to enrol the sensor though

  5. I bought a preowned home with this alarm and it says report failure on the screen and sometimes it beeps every few seconds until i play around and press a bunch of buttons. I have read that it means it cant connect to the phone line. What do i do if I dont want it to connect to the phone line?
