Honeywell Introduces New Temperature and Flood Detection Sensor

Designed to be integrated with Honeywell alarm systems, wireless device adds home condition monitoring to security


SYOSSET, N.Y. -- Honeywell has released the 5821 Wireless Temperature Sensor and Flood Detector. The unique device is the industry's only wireless product to help protect against the damages caused by temperature fluctuations and flood conditions-providing dealers with increased sales opportunities while greatly minimizing the risks that can result from these occurrences.

The versatile wireless device can be configured to operate as either a standalone temperature sensor and/or a remote temperature sensor or flood detector.

  • Flood detection (with Honeywell's 470PB External Water Probe) ideal for a wide range of applications; including bathrooms, laundry rooms and basements
  • Up to a 10-year battery life, which reduces maintenance cost
  • Capable of monitoring cold (45 degrees F) temperature and flood detection simultaneously
  • Compatible with Honeywell's 5800 Series Wireless products
