What causes my wireless device to experience radio frequency loss?

Last Updated: 11/19/2013

The most common causes radio frequency loss are signal range limitations and interference.

When a wireless receiver is outside the range of its corresponding Honeywell Control Panel, users will notice a significant frequency loss. Metal doors/windows, electronics, and wiring can sometimes interfere with a transmitted signal, which will also result in radio frequency loss. When these instances occur, the problem can often be solved by mounting the wireless sensor in a different location, away from metal doors/windows or any electronics that may generate interference. Also, make sure there is a relatively clear signal path between the wireless receiver, transmitter, and control panel. Adding a 5800RP wireless repeater is another way to buffer transmission signal strength.
