Honeywell’s 5806W3 is a 3V battery operated, photoelectronic smoke detector
with a built-in wireless transmitter. It facilitates fire verification for false
alarm reduction requirements by ANSI/SIA CP-01standards and is intended for use
with any of Honeywell’s 5800 Series wireless receiver/transceivers for
residential installations. The 5881ENHC or 5883H receivers are required for
The transmitter can send alarm, tamper, maintenance (when control panels are
equipped to process maintenance signals) and battery condition messages to the
system’s receiver. The maintenance signal fully complies with the sensitivity
test requirement specified in NFPA 72, 7-2.2 and is UL approved.
The 5806W3 incorporates a state-of-the-art optical sensing chamber and
advanced microprocessor. It also helps eliminate nuisance alarms and virtually
eliminates non-billable service calls and fines resulting from false alarms. The
microprocessor allows the detector to automatically maintain proper operation at
factory calibrated detection levels, even when sensitivity is altered due to the
presence of contaminants settling into the unit’s smoke chamber. A removable
detector cover and chamber top allows the technician to quickly and easily clean
the detector chamber without disassembling the detector head.
Since there are no holes to drill or wires to run, installers can preserve
the beauty of the protected premise while protecting it. The 5806W3 is an ideal
smoke detector for difficult to wire locations, applications where room
aesthetics are critical or where hazardous materials exist.
