This video will show you how to program a Honeywell 5811 wireless door/window contact delay while manually learning the serial number into the Honeywell LYNX Plus L3000 wireless security system. To do this remove the Honeywell 5811 from its box, open the 5811, remove the battery tab activating power, write down the serial number of the 5811. Now from the Honeywell L3000 keypad enter 4112, 800, *56, select available zone, *, 01 instant, *, c10 report code, *, 3 rf, *, loop 1, enter 7 digit serial number, *, verify serial number, *, change zone description if needed, *, 00 * 99 to exit out of programming. Once you have completed the programming of the Honeywell 5811 contact GEOARM Security so that we can test to make sure your sensor has been programmed correctly. 

Honeywell's 5811 thin Door/Window contact transmitter effectively disappears when installed next to standard door/window transmitters. It is ideal for casement and double-hung windows. The Honeywell 5811 provides a single zone of protection, and installs easily on doors or windows with the included mounting hardware or double-sided adhesive tape. Internalized to the contact there is a case tamper switch. This is in place so in the event someone is in your home and decides to attempt to vandalize or deactivate the sensor you will be notified. The battery used on the Honeywell 5811 thin door contact is a 3v ion lithium battery. You can expect a battery life between 3-5 years depending on usage of the device.

The Honeywell 5811 sensor has been given a range of 200 feet but, with this being a thinner contact we would lean along the lines of 75 feet. Keep in mind that dry wall, wood and other materials can also hinder the signal strength of the contacts back to the panel. Every time a contact signal has to go through for example dry wall that will cut the signal down by 30%. If your contacts are out of range you may need to add the Honeywell 5800RP wireless signal repeater which can extend the signal reach by 150 feet.
