Figure 3. Mount Detector Across Ceiling Panel Support
DO NOT attach the detector to removable ceiling panels. Attach
the detector across panel support as shown in Figure 3.
Airborne dust particles can enter the detector. Honeywell
recommends the removal of detectors before beginning construction
or any other dust producing activity. Carbon monoxide detectors are
not to be used with detector guards unless the combination has been
evaluated and found suitable for that purpose.

Figure 4. Detector Location Diagram
This detector has a built-in tamper switch that will cause a CHECK
signal to be displayed at the console of the alarm system if it is
removed from its mounting base while the system is disarmed (alarm
occurs if system is armed). The 5800CO detector includes a tamper-
resistant feature that prevents removal from the mounting base
without the use of a tool. To engage the tamper-resistant feature, cut
the small plastic tab located on the mounting base (Figure 2), and
then install the detector. To remove the detector from the base once
it has been made tamper resistant, use a small screwdriver to
depress the square tamper release tab, located on the skirt of the
mounting base, and turn the detector counterclockwise.
TESTING THE DETECTOR
NOTE: Before testing, notify the central station that the detector
system is undergoing maintenance, in order to prevent unwanted
alarms. Testing the detector will activate an alarm and send a signal
to the panel. Also, the test function cannot be used if the detector has
a trouble or end-of-life condition.
The manufacturer cannot recommend a specific agent with which to
test the detector.
Detectors must be tested after installation and following periodic
Testing Detector Operation
This test checks the detector's sounds, LEDs, and transmitter.
A recessed test button is located on the detector housing (see
Push and hold the recessed test button for a minimum of 5
seconds. Use a small screwdriver or Allen key with maximum
diameter of 0.18 inch. The alarm panel will trigger and then the
detector will go into alarm. The sounder begins the temporal 4
pattern and the red LED blinks. The alarm panel's keypad
should display the detector's zone number in alarm. If the tool is
removed from the recessed button the sounder will shut off and
red LED stops blinking.

Testing Signal Strength
NOTE: Remove battery tab before installation.
This test should be performed before installation to determine a
strong communication path with the control panel and after
installation is complete. Also, the owner/user should test the unit's
signal strength at least weekly.
Activate the wireless system's GO/NO GO TEST mode from the
keypad (refer to the control's instruction manual).
Depress and hold the detector's TEST button. If the detector has
not previously detected a low battery condition and it is within
proper sensitivity limits, the detector should immediately
transmit an alarm signal to the control panel. The built-in horn
will start to sound about 2.5 seconds after depressing the
The wireless system's keypad should emit at least three audible
sounds when the alarm transmission is received and will display
the transmitting detector's zone number.
When the console has received the test signal, release the TEST
button. The horn will stop and a few seconds later the detector's
zone number will clear from the console display.
If the console does not respond as noted, check the polarity of
the battery and be sure it is fresh. If this is an initial
installation, try moving the detector to another location that
provides proper reception. Also be sure that the detector has
been "enrolled" by the control panel (see PROGRAMMING).
Then, repeat the test.
Turn off the system's TEST mode from the keypad (security code
Testing Programmed Loops
This test should be performed before installation to ensure that the
detector has been programmed and is operational in the system.
Activate the system's TRANSMITTER ID SNIFFER mode from
the keypad (see the control panel's instructions). All
programmed wireless zones will be displayed, one by one, on the
system keypad. Make sure the detector zone is displayed in the
sequence. (If not, recheck that the detector zone has been
With the detector mounted to the mounting base, press the
detector's TEST button. The zone associated with the detector
should disappear from the keypad on the next display cycle.
This means that the system has received a transmission from
the detector zone you programmed.
When testing is complete, enter the Installer code + the OFF
key to exit TEST mode.
When all system testing has been completed, notify the central
station that the system is back on line.
