How do I test a Honeywell 5800PIR-RES motion detector?


Hey, DIYers. I’m Jorge from AlarmGrid. Today, we’re going
to be going over, how do we test the
Honeywell 5800PIR-RES? This is Honeywell’s
pet immune motion. Yes, it is a passive
infrared motion detector. And today, we’re going to be
showing you how to test it. So to start off,
this sensor here, right out of the box, as soon
as you pull the battery tab or as soon as you
insert the battery, you’re going to see– let
me go ahead and open it up. So you may not be able to see
the red light during the video, because of the studio
lights that we have. But whenever you
first get the sensor, and you install the battery
or connect the battery to it, the sensor goes into
a 10 minute test mode. Yeah, you should see a
red light come up on it. That red light will be
there for about 10 minutes. And it actually goes
into a 10 minute test. So basically , let me figure
out how to put this back on. Sorry. There we go. So it goes into
a 10 minute test. So if you guys are looking
to just test the motion, and looking at
where to mount it, you guys can either
first power it on, or you guys can just remove
and reinstall the battery. Anytime you remove and
reinstall the battery, it initiates that
10 minute test mode. You can mount it up whenever
you like, walk around the house, wave your hand in front of
it, and see if it blinks red. It blinks red every
time motion is detected. Yes. Now the motion has
a 35 by 40 coverage. And it does do up
to 80 pound pets. All right? Now there is one important
thing that you guys need to realize between
the sensor’s test mode and the system’s test mode. So right now, I actually have
this learned into the L7000. The sensor test is done
by removing the battery and reinstalling it. The system walk test is done
by you going into programming. So to do that, if you’re at the
home screen, you do security. You hit more, hit tools. Enter in your installer code. Mine is defaulted at 4112. Yours could be different. I’m going to go hit test. And I’ll do walk test. It’s going to ask
you for your code. I enter in my master code. Give me one second. OK. So sorry. Actually, I exited out of that. I must’ve pressed it
twice by accident. So I’m going to go back into
tools, programming, 4112, test, walk test. Sorry. Yeah, so what I did was I
accidentally hit it again really quick to disarm it. So now, you should see on
the top it’ll say, walk test. And it says press home to quit. What I want to do first
is this allows you to put your system into a test mode. And you can go around
opening doors, sensors without worrying about
setting off any alarms. And the system will
chime every time. So for instance,
you see this door, it chimes every single time. The motion, every
time I walk by it, it’s transmitting to the
signal that I’m setting it off. Yeah? So not only do I have the
sensor in a test mode, I also have the panel
in a test mode, which is causing it to
chime every time I wave my hand in front of it. So to exit test mode on this,
you press the home screen. And you enter in the code. One, two, three, four. You want to enter your
master code for that one. Mine is defaulted at
one, two, three, four. Again, yours could
possibly be different. So that’s one way that
you can test the motion. So you can either install
it, remove the battery, put the battery back in. It goes into a 10
minute walk test. It blinks red every single
time it detects you. You can also make sure it’s
transmitting to the panel. You can put the
panel in a walk test while this is
still in test mode. And the system will
chime every single time you cause a motion to trigger. Now one important
thing that you guys need to understand
about this motion is that after the 10
minute walk test mode, these motion detectors
now go into regular mode. And they act as normal
motion sensors would, which means that they have
a transmission lockout. What a transmission lockout is,
since these motion detectors are meant to last about
five years, again, it could be less
or more depending on how often you use it,
the transmission lockout allows the battery
to save battery life. So instead of always powering on
and consuming a lot of battery, it uses a transmission
lockout, which means that it only does one
fault per three minutes. So after the 10
minute test mode, the system will go
into regular mode. And it only faults once
every three minutes. What that means is that if it’s
in regular mode, I walk by it. It notices it. It won’t blink red. But then it goes into
like a sleep mode, let’s say, for three minutes. And then it comes back on. So this is very important
for a lot of people. Whenever you’re
testing it, if it’s out of the test mode,
the 10 minute walk test when you first
install the battery, it does have a
transmission lockout. So if you’re waving your
hand in front of it, it blinked red once. And then you try it
again 30 seconds later, it’s not working. That’s because it’s
in a sleep mode, and you need to give it up to
three minutes to try it again. This is especially important if
you guys are actually testing it by arming the system. So for instance, right
now, I’m going to go ahead, and I have it here. I believe it’s still in a
10 minute walk test mode, so it’s going to do that. Now one important thing. Let me put this
back down actually. It’s going to keep
faulting, because it’s still in a 10 minute walk test. Something important when
you guys arm the system, keep in mind,
motions are usually active when you arm
the system away. Yeah? Now these systems, they
have an auto stay feature. What a lot of people do,
they’ll arm the system. They’ll wait in front of their
panel until it’s done arming. And then they’ll test it. What you guys don’t realize
is that since auto stay is enabled, because you didn’t
open up an entry, exit door, the system knows that
nobody left the house, so it automatically goes
into an armed state. So it’s very important
when testing this out, that you guys make sure it
actually says armed away. So whenever you
guys do an arm away and you guys are testing
it for inside the house, make sure that you
guys do an arm away. Enter in your code. Open up an entry, exit door. That way, the system goes
into an arm away mode. And then you can
test the motion. I’ll show you guys right now. Right? So I’m going to do an arm away. I’m going to use my master
code, one, two, three, four. Gives me 45 seconds
to exit the house. Now I’m not going to open
up my entry, exit door, because I want you guys
to see what’s going to happen when I don’t do that. It is going to go
into an armed state. So it’s going to
go 30 seconds more. And you guys, again, it’s going
to go into an armed state. This is very important
for those of you who are testing this at
home by arming the system. Yeah? So 10, nine, eight, seven,
six, five, three seconds left. Here we go. And you’ll see at top,
it says, armed state. Armed state, it knows
nobody is at the house. Or I’m sorry. It knows that there’s
still people in the home. So by default, an
armed state usually disables all the motions. There is another feature
called armed night state, where you can do an armed
state, you can actually select certain motions to be
armed during an armed state. This could be used if you
live in a multiple floor home. And let’s say that
nobody’s supposed to be downstairs
during sleeping hours. Somebody walks past that motion
that motion will be active since it’s in an armed night
state and it will set it off but that’s a different feature. Yeah, so we have an armed state. I’m going to go ahead
and do a disarm. Enter my master code. Now let’s do the arm away. Again, this time, we’re
going to open and close an entry exit door. And then I close it back up. Now if the system read that
open and close, which it should, because I have it programmed
in, the system now should go into an armed away. I’m just going to do it
one more time just in case. OK, so it did read it. As you saw there, it was
about at 10, 20 seconds. When I opened the door and
closed it back up again, it restarted it back
to the top, 45 seconds. So now, it’s going to go into
an armed away, which now, we can test that motion. And since I have the motion
set to interior follower, as soon as that motion
detects my hand or my body, you’re going to start seeing
the system’s going to go into an alarm state right away. I’m going to get it disarmed
for you guys though. So let’s give it a
couple of moments. And again, as long as my sensor
is in the 10 minute test mode, or if it’s not in the
transmission lock out, I think it’s been
passed the 10 minutes, I haven’t triggered
it or anything, so it should work right away. We’ll find out right now. [ALARM BEEP] There we go. Yes, so I disarmed it one time. I had the motion
facing the wall. When I flipped it around,
it noticed my body, and it caused the
automatic alarm. And you’ll see it
says, alarm cancelled. Remember when you
do get an alarm, you have to disarm twice. Good. So again, remember guys,
there’s multiple ways to test that motion. You can remove and
reinstall the battery. Puts it into a 10
minute walk test. You can put the panel
in a walk test mode while the sensor
is in a test mode, and you can hear
the panel chime. If you already have
it programmed in, you’ve had it for
a while, you want to make sure the sensor is
working, do an armed way. Open up an entry, exit door. Close it. Give it up to three
minutes, especially if the motion detected you. Remember there’s a
transmission lock out. And yeah, that’s pretty much
how you test a 2800PIR-RES. If you guys do
