Question about First Alert PIR720R 360 Hands-Free Light Socket with Motion Sensor

1 Answer

My landline rings only once after which it goes to fax tone. If you pick up in that ring or else you will hear the fax tone. Even the caller hears a fax tone. I DO NOT have a fax in my house or ever used this number for fax. Please help. I have tried everything. Called the ATT company people- they said they is no problem from their end. Tried removing all phones from 2 jacks I have in the house. The problem comes back. Please HELP. Thanks.

I have a IQ America doorbell with 5 chimes and 5 tunes and the bell only plays a sorta gong which cannot even be heard How do I fix this problem so that it plays a chime/tune?


We had a similar problem with a wired doorbell. There is a diode in the doorbell itself that causes the chime to ring fully. If the diode is backwards, you get just a small tone and can only hear the full chime if you hold the button down. If this sounds like your problem, open up the doorbell at the button end (or have an electrician do it) and reverse the diode.

Wiring


There are 3 wires on this siren. Red, Black, and Yellow. The red and black wires will give you the normal sound you hear from a siren. If you hook up the black and yellow, it will give you a continuous long tone. Normally, you hook up the black to Bell - and and the red to Bell +.

Hello, I just purchased a GE SImon XT system with two motion detectors and a smoke/temperature increase detector. I live in a very small house and don't need more. Everything is hooked up and works...


Clarence,

If the problem is the Communication Failure, try to reprogram the Home Security System. The codes that you need are indicated in the user's manual. If reprogramming the Simon would not resolve the problem, try to get the master code from the manufacturer.

Reprogramming the device should resolves the issue.

Problem about remote access by phone or cell phone


You have the right info are you using the master code?

How to gain access to the Control Panel:
1. Call the panel and let the phone ring twice then hang up.
2. Wait at least 10 seconds and call the panel again. You may wait up to 40 seconds
before calling again.
3. The panel should answer on the first ring. You won’t hear any prompt when the
system answers.
4. Press the * button on your telephone and you will hear system activated.
At this point you may perform the actions listed in the following table of phone commands.
CODE refers to the master and access codes programmed into your system.

also contact your installation company to see if this feature is enabled.

I have two door chimes with the same frequemcy, but different codes. I need to place the chimes in different rooms as I am hard of hearing. How do I match both codes so that they ring at the same time when...


You need to change the pin configuration in both the remote buttons to match each other, (as well as the bell unit) just make sure they match on both bell units. Also, since one works just use that configuration and change the button pin configuration that does not work to the button that does on the other button unit.

What is the option for cell phone activation of the system


Sorry. There is no option for cell phones. The unit requires what little voltage that comes over the red & green wires to use it. (It's the voltage that makes your normal phone ring before you pick it up, otherwise there is no voltage in a phone line). So without a regular phone line, it's not going to do what you want.

Phone communication failure


Hi,
I have been following your case for a while now and start to think that you should switch to another alarm company, I mean if they can't fix such a simple problem with a tech (!?!?) to me, as an alarm installer, it is unacceptable!, in Canada we had the same problem and did the change and life went on..sorry for my typo mistakes it is because i have a french accident (i am from Quebec, Canada).

Thanks,
