Fire Detection Sensors
Ademco's smoke and heat detectors install quickly and easily. Point
identification and maintenance alert capabilities make it easy to
identify the detector in alarm and simplify service and maintenance.

Field-proven wireless technology is an exciting new advance in
security that provides the most reliable, convenient and cost effective
solutions for security protection.

5808  Ademco Wireless Smoke and Heat Detector
Honeywell’s 5808W3 is a 3V lithium powered, photoelectronic smoke/heat
detector with a built-in wireless transmitter. It is intended for use with any 5800
Series Wireless Receiver/Transceiver for residential installations.

The transmitter can send alarm, tamper, maintenance (when control panels
are equipped to process maintenance signals), and battery condition
messages to the system’s receiver. Smoothing algorithms minimize nuisance
alarms by smoothing out short term spikes from dust and smoke – virtually
eliminating nuisance alarms.

Since there are no holes to drill or wires to run, you can preserve the beauty of
the building while protecting it. The 5808W3 is an ideal smoke detector for
those difficult to wire locations, applications where room aesthetics are critical,
or where hazardous materials exist.

All models also feature a restorable, built-in, fixed temperature (135°F) thermal
detector that is also capable of sensing a pre-freeze condition if the
temperature is below 41°F.


  • Improved Robust RF Field Strength
    The distance between the detector and receiver has been significantly
    increased without the need for a repeater
  • Smoothing Algorithms
    Mathematical calculations in the detector’s software that minimize
    nuisance alarms by smoothing out short term spikes from dust and
  • Smart Check
    A signal is sent to the control panel when the detector requires
    cleaning. This allows a regular, non-emergency service call to clean the
    detector before it goes into alarm.
  • Drift Compensation
    Virtually eliminates nuisance alarms from long-term dust build-up by
    automatically adjusting the detector’s sensitivity
  • Removable Detector Cover and Chamber Top
    The technician is able to quickly and easily clean the detector chamber
    without disassembling the detector head
  • Approved UL Listings for Residential and Commercial Applications
    Both residential and commercial installation requirements are met
  • Additional LED Status Indicators
    Identifying between alarm or trouble conditions is a snap with green
    and red LED status indicators. A green LED denotes a normal condition
    while the red LED indicates abnormal conditions.
  • Easy-to-install Mounting Base
    The sturdy mounting base allows the detector to be more easily
    installed on uneven surfaces (i.e. stucco). The mounting base has
    larger mounting ports, which accommodate drywall anchors for easy
    surface mounting.

Addition Features

  • Utilizes one long-life 3V lithium battery
  • Microcontroller runs on a 4.0 MHz clock
  • Horn operates at 3.3 KHz with sound pressure level of 85dBA at 10 feet
  • Built-in wireless transmitter, temporal code 3 sounder
  • Maintenance signal fully complies with the sensitivity test requirement
    specified in NFPA 72, 7-2.2 and is approved by UL
