Converting Hardwired Installs to Wireless Sales

Have you ever wanted to upgrade an existing customer’s hardwired system to a LYNX to offer them lifestyle benefits such as lighting, lock and thermostat control? In the past, this would mean you would have to spend a lot of time and money to provide the right solution for your business and your customers.

5800C2WWe just released a new product called the 5800C2W that provides an easy and cost-effective solution. The 5800C2W lets you retrofit existing 12-volt security systems by converting wired sensors to Honeywell 5800 Series wireless. It saves on installation costs, time and materials since there is no need to replace wired devices with individual transmitters.

Save Time on your Next Install with the Calibration Feature
The calibration feature on the 5800C2W solves a frustrating problem for installers. When converting hardwire to wireless zones, the first thing you need to do is find all the resistors. Many times resistors can be in the walls or buried in the window frame. Tried digging those out? Talk about labor! The 5800C2W has a one button calibration. Press it and forget about resistor issues.  It will automatically calibrate the value from 2k to 9k. Now that’s a labor saver!
