The Ademco 5800MICRA wireless recessed transmitter is for those people who would like a recessed wireless transmitter that is hidden from plain site. This device also helps save against voiding the warranty on your vinyl windows because you can shallow recess it without having to drill into anything.
A lot of people like the idea of a recessed transmitter for doors, but don’t like the standard ones that Honeywell makes because it requires drilling too deep of a hole in the door jamb. This small contact is easy to install and, at a depth of .33″, you don’t have to drill a very deep hole at all to fit it into the jamb of a door or the sill of a window.
This will allow you to have a recessed contact to protect your doors and windows from intrusion and, because of the transmitters small size, you won’t have to worry about voiding the warranty of door or window that you might be installing this in.
The batteries used to operate this transmitter are 3.0V Lithium Coin Cell Battery CR1620 and, depending upon usage, can last up to 10 years. All of the Honeywell alarm systems that can use 5800 series transmitters will also let you know when the batteries are going low so that you may change them out before they go dead on you.
This is a very slim, nice looking transmitter and is perfect for installations where you don’t want any of the perimeter transmitters to be seen. You can find the data sheet on the Honeywell 5800MICRA transmitter at the link below if you’d like to read the full specifications:
