How to program the Honeywell 5818MNL wireless Door/Window contact into the Honeywell L5200 wireless security system? Take the Honeywell 5818MNL wireless contact and with a small flat-head screwdriver remove the battery cover, insert the battery accordingly, gather the 7 digit serial number, and seal up the Honeywell 5818MNL wireless contact. Locate your Honeywell LYNX Touch L5200 wireless security system and from the home screen select security, more, tools, enter installer code "default is 4112, program, zones, highlight an available zone or add new, highlight serial number, enter in 7 digit serial number, done, loop number 1, zone description, device type door, response type you can set to any of the offered response types, report yes, select chime type, supervision supervised, save, back, yes go to the home screen and call GEOARM Security to make sure that you have programmed your Honeywell 5818MNL correctly.  

The Honeywell 5818MNL wireless Door/Window contact is a magnetic contact sensor that provides concealed protection for doors or windows. With its tapered design and at nearly half the size of standard transmitters, the Honeywell 5818MNL is another example of how Honeywell's wireless technology is constantly evolving to meet customer needs.

The Honeywell 5818MNL should not be installed in metal doors or windows that are located at long distance from the actual RF receiver. Metal will drastically cut the signal down to almost zero and not allow the panel to communicate with the Honeywell 5818MNL contact. You will notice this if your alarm system gives you an RF trouble. If you are receiving the RF signal trouble make sure you take a look at your contacts to see if they have been installed in this manner.

If you are still receiving this RF signal trouble and the contact is not mounted in metal you may also want to take a look at the overall distance from the panel to the Honeywell 5818MNL wireless contact. Typically they state that contacts can have a range of 200 feet. With the Honeywell 5818MNL wireless contact being a smaller contact we would lean along the lines of 150. Keep in mind that dry wall, wood and other materials can also hinder the signal strength of the contacts back to the panel. Every time a contact signal has to go through for example dry wall that will cut the signal down by 30 percent. If your contacts are out of range you may need to add the Honeywell 5800RP wireless signal repeater. The 5800RP can extend the signal reach by 150 feet.
 The Honeywell LYNX Touch L5200 wireless security system has been discontinued by Honeywell and will no longer produce these alarm panels. The L5200 has been replaced by the Honeywell L5210 wireless security system the link to the new system has been placed below.
