Honeywell releases wireless motion detector for outdoor sensing

MELVILLE, NY, August 10, 2009 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has released the 5800PIR-OD Wireless Outdoor Motion Detector. The newest member of Honeywell's popular 5800 Series family of wireless devices, the 5800PIR-OD is an ideal solution for outdoor sensing applications in difficult to wire locations— avoiding the costs and time required for trenching and excavating (which is usually required for traditionally wired outdoor sensing technologies). The robust, easy-to-install, battery operated sensor delivers reliable outdoor performance and provides valuable protection in commercial settings including exterior entrances, car lots, rooftops and more. It is also an excellent solution for guarding against copper theft in utility and electrical substations.

Notable features include a range adjustable to 40', immunity to both large and small animals and two passive infrared (PIR) sensors that must both be tripped in order to declare an alarm. When used with Honeywell's Total Connect digital communications solution, business professionals can be notified via e-mail or text message when the unit sees an object that triggers an alarm. The sensor is weatherproof and features a temperature range of -4º F to 122º F (-20º C to 50º C)
