Life on the Edge: A Sensor Infographic

David Gottlieb by David Gottlieb | 01.02.2013

If you think about it, they may be the unsung heroes of any security system.  No matter how sophisticated your control panel, or how fancy your keypad, it is the sensors (those devices at the edge) that are on the front lines – and provide the real intelligence in a system. 

Check out this handy infographic on how 5800 series wireless sensors can provide security and increased safety in nearly any situation.  Use it as cheat sheet to find the right sensors on your next job!

    David, this is a great infographic highlighting many of the devices that pull together a system. I really appreciate your pointing out of the statistics in the graphic. Many people say “It will never happen to me” This shows that the numbers are real and offers ways to help decrease your chances of being part of one of those numbers. Thanks for the great imagery.

    Nicely done David. Very clear and easy to understand depiction of how versatile the Honeywell 5800 Series wireless sensors can be. I think it is very important to let potential and existing customers that a Honeywell security system can protect against much more than just burglary. Adding the full line of sensors really helps to maximize the value of your alarm monitoring service.

    I think you missed the 5853 Wireless Glassbreak Detector for interior/exterior protection.

    Honeywell often has a tendency to produce materials without considering the audience. The stats above are great, particularly when oriented toward the end-user. The part-numbers are also useful, but only to the novice installer. The end-user doesn’t give a darn about part numbers – they just want to see solutions, and perhaps aesthetic differences. As an installing business, this is a useless tool to me. Most customers are afraid of this type of technology, so giving them too much technical information (part numbers and technical jargon) is not an incentive to get them to call me for an appointment, it’s an impediment. In addition if I give this document to the end-user (or put it on my website), then they can Google these part numbers and find them on Amazon or e-Bay, and not understand the difference between *installed* equipment and not installed equipment. I expect more from you.
