Question about GE Security Simon 3 Wireless Home Security System

1 Answer

How do I open the system to get to the battery?

My system keeps beeping every four hours as the battery is low. (Owned the home now for 3 years.) Where is the battery located and how do I get to it? Also where can I buy a new battery? What store carries this? Home Depot?

The battery is located inside the panel.

Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the slt at the top (front) of the panel and release the catch. The panel will fold down to reveal the PCB panel, the battery and the cabling connections for hardwired sensors, telephone & 9V AC power supply.

The battery has push connectors that can be unpluged for replacement.

Replacement batteries are available from your dealer or via Online security store specializing in GE Simon products.

Beeps at 3:30 in the morning


Sounds like your system s trying to send in a timer test and It is telling you that I can't communicate. It also could be that you have a system low battery that the panelis testing every 24 hours. There may be moreinformation from the keypad to help diagnose the problem.

I have a GE Simon XT. I arm the system. When I return several hours later, the front door doesn't beep when I open it. I have to close/open it again to register. Front door is Sensor 1, Group 10. What...


Can I assume it is a wireless contact we are talking about?

1.) Low battery in tansmitter. Does your keypad display a low battery trouble? If so, ensure you put system in test before replacing battery as not to generate a tamper alarm when opening contact.

2.) Relay in transmitter is sticking. Replace wireless contact.

Sytem will beep every three hour or when we open the main door


Check batteries in patio door are in correctly and are good. I know you said you changed them all. but if batteries are in correctly and are good try taking them out again waiting 20 sec putting them back in. If they are bad or low most likely a bad sensor shorted the out. replace part.

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.

On Simon panels, the master code should default to 1234 if it's been powered down for several hours (I can't remember how long, at least four hours, possibly 12-16). So, unplug it from the wall and disconnect the system battery and leave it for the night. Power it up by plugging in the battery first and plug it into the wall. Then enter the code as 1234. It should annouce that the alarm system is disarmed. If so, your code is 1234. ;)

When removing the battery, be very careful to not break the little tab that holds it shut! Can't stress that enough.

System Low Battery Alarm


You can silence trouble beeps by arming and disarming the system or by pressing status button; however, trouble beeps resume after 4 hours if the trouble condition as not been fixed. You can turn the trouble beeps off in the programming option 40. This should be done by your security professional because any mistake you could change other parameters in the system and the system may not work correctly. Hope this helps

Simon 3 "System Low Battery" after 3 years use


I install these panels.  For the low battery message to clear you need to power the system down completely.  To do this you need to unplug the battery and also unplug the transformer plugged into an electrical outlet.  When you power the system back up, you need to first plug in the battery leads.  Then the transformer.

Simon 3: A remote window sensor downstairs creates a constant Low Battery beep/message.


it should be a 6 volt, 1.3 amp hour battery. you can get them at batteries plus. best bet is to take the old one with you to the store to ensure that it fits.
