This video shows you how to program a Honeywell 5816 resident monitor into a window using the Honeywell LYNX Touch L5210 wireless security system using a resident monitor setting. Remove the Honeywell 5816 from its packaging box, remove the front cover by depressing the tab on the contact, write down the 7 digit serial number, insert the battery, seal the cover back up.

To program: From the home screen select security, more, tools, installer code "default code is 4112", program, zones, highlight first available zone or add new, select serial number, input the serial number, loop number is 2, assign zone description, device type is window, response type is resident monitor, report yes, select chime type, supervision supervised, save, back, yes, exit to the home screen. That's how you program a Honeywell 5816 to a window using the resident monitor setting. 

The resident monitor setting is used to monitor a resident in an area deemed to be dangerous by a caregiver. The resident monitor setting does not send reports to the central alarm monitoring station or store the information in the event history. This setting is typically just used to alert the caregiver while they are home. When the resident monitor setting is activated it will announce two beeps followed by activity detected and the zone descriptor constantly for 15 seconds. The fault on the actual alarm system will clear itself after 15 seconds regardless of the zones state.

The Honeywell 5816 window contact is a two zone wireless transmitter with both built-in magnetic reed switches and wired closed circuit contact loop. It Features a standard white plastic case “a brown case is available in packs of three and included is a supervised replaceable battery.

The Honeywell 5816 contacts are one of the larger contacts that Honeywell develops aesthetically but, for overall usage the 5816 contact is a great addition to your wireless security system. The Honeywell 5816 has a large antenna, which gives you a better connection back to the Honeywell L5210 system.
