The Honeywell 5819WHS is a wireless shock sensor and transmitter. The 5819WHS features a built-in shock sensor and are intended for use only with alarm systems that support ADEMCO 5800-Series wireless devices. The built-in shock sensor is used to detect forcible attack upon the surface to which it is mounted. It is designed to protect window and door surroundings. The sensor is electrically normally closed, but, under shock conditions, goes open-circuit momentarily. The 5819 supports three unique zones, known as "loops": Loop 1 = built-in shock sensor loop, factory-wired to TB1 (normally closed)
Loop 2 = built-in magnetic reed switch in conjunction with a magnet (normally closed) Loop 3 = externally wired, closed-circuit contact loop connected to TB2
The 5819WHS/BRS also has a built-in cover tamper switch that activates when the cover is removed and sends a "check" message to the control. Typical area of coverage is 10 -12 feet (5-6 foot radius). This can vary, depending on the type of window or other mounting surface to which the unit is mounted. For proper functionality, the shock processor must be mounted with the embossed arrow pointed up (towards the ceiling). It is not acceptable to mount the 5819WHS on a horizontal plane. It MUST be mounted on a vertical plane.
