The Honeywell 5869 is a hold-up switch/transmitter for a finger-operated RF transmitting device. It is typically mounted under a counter or money draw for inconspicuous operation. When the transmitter is activated, it emits an RF signal to the receiver. The security system control panel sends a burglary alarm to the central station when a RF signal is received from an enrolled Hold-Up Switch/Transmitter. Once activated, the 5869 Hold-Up Switch/Transmitter can only be reset by the reset key.
Before mounting the 5869 permanently, perform Go/No Go tests to verify adequate transmitter signal strength at desired mounting location. The 5869 Hold-Up Switch/Transmitter
should be programmed as a 24-hour silent zone type. The 5869 also incorporates tamper switches that are activated when the cover is removed, or if the unit is forcibly removed from its installation location.
