Honeywell’s 5870API is a wireless asset protection device designed to guard
against theft. It easily affixes to any valuable requiring protection within a
home or business, including paintings, flat screens and other electronics,
family heirlooms, safes, machinery, equipment and more.
The 5870API is an ideal solution for early warning notification or alarm
verification. The 5870API uses patented Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS)
Accelerometer technology, which senses acceleration in the X and Y axis. When
affixed to the protected asset, the device will trigger a “detect” if an attempt
is made to move or disturb the asset.
The 5870API is intended for use with Honeywell alarm systems that support
5800 Series wireless devices. The transmitter is fully supervised and can send
alarm, tamper, trouble and low battery conditions to the alarm control panel.
What is Asset Protection?
Asset protection is a focused
security solution designed to protect specific, tangible assets. Usually these
assets are things that people consider valuable, have a high probability of
theft or should not be tampered with. The 5870API continues to provide
protection even when the panel is disarmed—letting dealers protect against
burglary and theft at the same time.
