This video shows you how to program a Honeywell 5816 wireless Door/Window contact into the Honeywell LYNX Touch L5210 wireless security system using a hardwired door contact programmed with an entry exit 2 delay. Remove the Honeywell 5816 from its packaging box, remove the front cover by depressing the tab on the contact, hard wire the external contact as shown, write down the 7 digit serial number, insert the battery, seal the cover back up.

To program: From the home screen select security, more, tools, installer code "default code is 4112", program, zones, highlight first available zone or add new, select serial number, input the serial number, loop number is 1, assign zone description, device type is door, response type is entry exit 2, report yes, select chime type, supervision supervised, save, back, yes, exit to the home screen. That's how you program a Honeywell 5816 to a door using the entry exit 2 setting. 

The Honeywell 5816 contact has a special feature which allows you to hard wire one contact into the external contact terminal of the wireless contact. This works great if you have garage style doors that require a special contact. In this particular video we are programming the contact to have an entry delay 2 with a default delay of 60 seconds. This will allow ample time to enter the home or business to disarm the system before it goes into an alarm. 
The Honeywell 5816 Door/Window contact is a two zone wireless transmitter with both built-in magnetic reed switches and wired closed circuit contact loop. It features a standard white plastic case “a brown case is available in packs of three 5816BR” and included is a supervised replaceable CR123 battery.

The Honeywell 5816 contact's are one of the larger contacts that Honeywell develops aesthetically but, for overall usage the 5816 contact is a great addition to your wireless security system. The Honeywell 5816 has a large antenna, which gives you a better connection back to the Honeywell L5210 system.

A additional feature that the Honeywell 5816 has is its ability to carry one hardwired contact. This application is perfect for garage doors needing an overhead garage door contact. All you have to do is hard wire the overhead garage door contact to the provided terminals inside the 5816 wireless Door/Window contact, program the contact as a loop one instead of loop 2.
