There are two issues. The sensors have to use the same RF frequency and they
have to use the same communications protocol. There should be an FCC ID
number on the sensors. With it we can determine whether the Honeywell
sensors use the same frequency as RadioShack (X-10).
Honeywell uses some odd frequencies, for which it's difficult to find
off-the-shelf receivers, in some of their RF stuff. I suspect they probably
use a different frequency than RadioShack (X-10).
