Help with wireless window security alarm

2 months ago, I got the exterior of my house painted. While painting, the workers pulled up the windows. Since then the security alarm stopped working. I cannot set it back. The keypad keeps saying the zones are not ready. Is there anyway to troubleshoot this? Your help is appreciated.

    Thanks for the reply. I have a wireless security alarm which has a small piece and a big piece that goes on a window. Tried replacing a battery. Didn't work. No wires on the window. Don't know what made them to not work. Please help.

"Zone not ready" indicates the windows sensors are not seeing the magnet piece to indicate the window is closed. Are your sensors built into the window jams or are they external wires you can see?

If you have external wires, look for broken wires or broken/missing magnetic bars.

Did the painters paint the window jams? If so, they may have painted over a sensor, though paint usually does not affect the functionality of a magnetic sensor.

Look for the broken wires or broken/missing magnets.

Also - you should be able to bypass the window zones and set the alarm. Instructions for bypassing a zone should be on the alarm head or available online.

    What is the manufacturer and model of the wireless alarm? The wireless sensor may need to be "re-joined" to the system.

    Underwriters Laboratories Inc. is not a manufacturer. They are an independent trusted source across the globe for product compliance. They make sure you won't be harmed by any physical or electrical problems with a product.

    The manufacturer and model of the equipment should be listed near the UL label.

Have ADT 3000 series alarm system - would like to set it to max


adt sw3000 panel does not support max button on key pad. best solution would be to have ADT tech reprogram Zones so windows are perimeter zones(instant when armed away or stay) and motions interior follower (instant when no perimeter zone was triggered first). doors stay exit/entry.

We just moved into a house and it has an alarm system that has westinghouse on it. There are sensors on every door and window down stairs. We have no idea how to turn it on and get it set up.


Call an alarm company like ADT. If they can use it they will. it will require some minor reprogramming and they will check all sensors, if the use it. 1-800-ADT-ASAP.

Low Battery warning on Simon 3 even when I changed it out


temperature affects batteries. if the batteries on the window sensors have been in use for some time it is probably time to change them. Alarm batteries are only expected to last 3 to 5 years with moderate use. If you have close neighbors or live in an apartment complex then false reads could be a factor.

Problem arming all sensors on ge simon security


I have yet to test it but I think I've figured it out... I spoke to the place I bought the alarm from and he stated that for both the door/windows & motion to arm, you have to leave the house (or activate an exit door) or the alarm thinks you are still in the house. Since the motion is instant on, this prevents you from accidentally setting off the alarm if you armed it and never left.

So what if you want to arm both and stay inside? There is an option called Unvacted premises (in the Timers menu). It's on by default and makes the alarm behave as described above. Set this option to off and you should be able to set both and not leave the house.
