Honeywell 5800C2W Hardwired/Wireless Converter

The Honeywell 5800C2W is a hardwired to wireless converter that you can use to convert any hardiwred zone into a zone that can be used with any Honeywell wireless enabled system such as the Lynx series. This takes some of the hassle out of changing alarm systems if you currently have an all hardwired system. Most people dread changing over to an all wireless system because they have to replace every single hardwired device with a wireless version. Using the 5800C2W converters will save you time, money and materials allowing an installer to switch over wired devices to this convenient converter and not having to spend a premium on replacement wireless devices

Not only can you convert simple wired switches but you can also run powered devices like PIR motion detectors from this converter as well because of the included power transformer. This also has the ability to use a standard system backup battery just in case the electricity goes down.

With the press of a single button you can calibrate this device to configure to the new wireless system. The 5800C2W will send out a signal and automatically learn which zones are free on the wireless alarm main panel.

Set-up is a three step process:

  1. Mount and wire the module
  2. Calibrate/activate the module zones
  3. Enroll the module's wireless zones into the control panel
We have had quite a few people asking how to save a little money on a hardwired takeover and we've found the answer for you.
