Honeywell's 5898 Wireless K-Band DUAL TEC Motion Sensor provides superior detection and reduces the risk of false alarms.
Brand: Honeywell Intrusion
Part Number: 5898

Availability: In stock




Honeywell's 5898 Wireless K-Band DUAL TEC Motion Sensor provides superior detection and reduces the risk of false alarms. The combination of PIR and K-Band microwave technologies enable the sensors to distinguish between real intruders and other environmental conditions by "confirming" each other within a defined area of protection. The sleek, compact design makes it ideal for applications where aesthetics and discretion are critical. PIR sensitivity and temperature sensing can be enabled via local programming or from the central station. Installation is easy, with no jumpers, switches or disassembly, fewer mounting restrictions and an automatic walk test mode that turns on the LED for ten minutes - saving installers one trip up the ladder for each sensor. The Honeywell 5898 blends perfectly with Honeywell's 5800 Series family of sensors to create a seamless look in any residential or commercial environment.

Honeywell Dual Tech PIR Features

  • Advanced DualCore Signal Processing
    DualCore signal processing analyzes PIR and microwave signals through the 5898 microcontroller. DualCore processing supports a multitude of advanced functions, including concurrent diagnostics, digital fluorescent light interference filter, adaptive baselines and bidirectional temperature compensation.
  • K-Band Microwave Technology
    K-Band microwave technology delivers sharp detection without holes or weak spots. The custom-made source offers pattern shaping to fill the protected area with a broad, balloon-shape that matches the PIR pattern. It also offers pattern containment to reduce the penetration of microwave energy through walls.
  • Faster and Easier to Install
    Specific features that contribute to this benefit include:
    - Automatic walk test
    - Flashlight walk test
    - Remotely programmable sensitivity
    - Circuit board does not need to be removed to install on wall
    - Ceiling and wall mounting brackets help to easily direct the pattern where needed
    - No mounting height adjustments
    - 7'-9' mounting height means fewer restrictions than current offerings
    - Easy opening case
    - Covered circuit board reduces risk of installer initiated damage
  • Fewer Service Calls
    Incorrect installation of equipment or changing requirements at the site (e.g., new pets) are no longer a problem with:
    - Automatic walk test mode turns on the walk test LED for ten minutes. Walk test mode can also be triggered with a flashlight.
    - Remotely programmable sensitivity
    - Longer battery life
    - End-user replaceable batteries
    - Black bug guard means 15% fewer false alarms due to bright lights directed into the PIR
    - UV protected lenses
  • Same Family Look
    Dealers can install one family look whether they use hardwired, V-Plex(R) or wireless in order to complete the job. In addition, if the dealers need to mix and match sensing technologies, the look of the installation is consistent.
  • Decreased Liability
    Self-test-alerts end-user and central station if the motion detector stops functioning
  • Hot or Cold Temperature Alert
    - (< 45deg. F) warns when temperatures are approaching the freezing point
    - (> 95deg. F) warns when temperatures are rising too high
  • Commercial Dealer -Additional Benefits
    - New longer range patterns allow more wireless options
    - Colder operation down to -4º F (-20º C) for use in unheated areas
    - High or low temperature detection
    - Look down option provides increased security right below the detector
    - Back tamper switch-required for commercial certificated installations
