Honeywell releases wireless motion detector for outdoor installations

MELVILLE, NY, February 9, 2009 – Honeywell today announced the release of 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. It avoids 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 Honeywell dealers with an excellent way to increase recurring monthly revenue (RMR) when used with Honeywell's Total Connect digital communications solutions.

The 5800PIR-OD provides valuable property protection in both residential and commercial settings, including driveways, pool areas, boats, trailers, sheds and more. In commercial settings, the 5800PIR-OD can guard against copper theft in utility and electrical substations. It can protect building exterior entrances, car lots, rooftops and more.

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, homeowners or business owners can be notified via e-mail or text message when the unit sees an object that triggers an alarm. The sensor is weatherproof and also features a temperature range of -4ÅŸ F to 122ÅŸ F (-20ÅŸ C to 50ÅŸ C)
