5870API Wireless Asset Protection Sensor Gray
Honeywell’s 5870API is a wireless asset protection device designed to guard against theft. It easily affixes to any valuable requiring protection within a home or business, including paintings, flat screens and other electronics, family heirlooms, safes, machinery, equipment and more.
The 5870API is an ideal solution for early warning notification or alarm verification. The 5870API uses patented Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) Accelerometer technology, which senses acceleration in the X and Y axis. When affixed to the protected asset, the device will trigger a “detect” if an attempt is made to move or disturb the asset.
The 5870API is intended for use with Honeywell alarm systems that support 5800 Series wireless devices. The transmitter is fully supervised and can send alarm, tamper, trouble and low battery conditions to the alarm control panel.
What is Asset Protection?
Asset protection is a focused security solution designed to protect specific, tangible assets. Usually these assets are things that people consider valuable, have a high probability of theft or should not be tampered with. The 5870API continues to provide protection even when the panel is disarmed—letting dealers protect against burglary and theft at the same time.
Numerous applications in both the residential and commercial markets exist:
Expensive electronics - TV, home entertainment equipment
House safe/gun safe
Museums and art galleries (paintings and sculptures)
Hospitals and laboratories (medical equipment)
Colleges and schools (computers, projectors, laboratory equipment)
Construction sites (tools and building materials)
Offices (printers, copiers, computers and cash boxes)
