The Honeywell 5870API is a wireless asset protection device designed to guard against theft. It easily affixes to any valuable requiring protection within a home or business, including paintings, flat screens and other electronics, family heirlooms, safes, machinery, equipment and more. The 5870API is an ideal solution for early warning notification or alarm verification. When affixed to the protected asset, the device will trigger a "detect" if an attempt is made to move or disturb the asset. The 5870API can be set to alarm after 1-3 second or 5-8 seconds of continuous movement, or to alarm when unit is tilted more than 30 degrees.
The 5870API uses patented Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) Accelerometer technology, which senses acceleration in the X and Y axis (three distinct modes).
The three modes are; 1. High security "fast-trigger" mode when an asset moves for a short travel time and minimum movement 2. Standard security mode when an asset moves for a long travel time and occasional movement detection 3. Tilt mode when an asset moves at angle intended for boxes with lids that can be opened (e.g.; jewelry or cash boxes)
The 5870API is intended for use with Honeywell alarm systems that support 5800 Series wireless devices. The transmitter is fully supervised and can send alarm, tamper, trouble and low battery conditions to the alarm control panel. LOOP 1 is for High Security (Fast Trigger) applications and should ONLY be used if the asset will NOT be subject to external vibration. Loop 2 (Standard Security mode) should be used in most cases.
What is Asset Protection?
Asset protection is a focused security solution designed to protect specific, tangible assets. Usually these assets are things that people consider valuable, have a high probability of theft or should not be tampered with. The 5870API continues to provide protection even when the panel is disarmed letting DIYer's to protect against burglary and theft at the same time.
