Question about GE Security Simon 3 Wireless Home Security System
Just received my new Ge Simon XT and the siren (13-950) should have come with a 4.7k resistor. I want to buy one but turns out I dont know what watt I need, can you help?
The 4.7k ohm resistor (1/4 watt is fine) is only needed if you want the siren to be supervised (i.e., the alarm to go off if someone cuts the wires). If the siren is inside your premises (i.e., in the house or the garage) and therefore unlikely to be attacked, you don't need the resistor. (Hardware supervision is disabled by default on the Simon XT, so if you do wire the resistor, it won't do you any good unless you enable hardware supervision in System Configuration.)

If the resistor is used on a detection circuit, any standard 1/4 watt resistor will work fine. The function of such resistors are to be placed at the end of the line (most distant part of the detection circuit) and the purpose is simply to prevent a undetected short path in the line from going undetected. Such a circuit allows for the detection circuit (also called a loop) to activate both on a short or open in the circuit.
