SOURCE: DTIM with digial phone service

I install these types of alarms.
First, What is usuallly plugged into the cables main box? Usually it is a jack. This would run to the main phone lines in the house, and allow you to have service at alll the jacks in the house. If this was not the case, then you usually just plug your phone in directly. Either way, the tel #1/2 on the main box is the same principal as the two main lines comming in off the street with the phone company. If there is a jack, get another and a peice of 2/4 strand wire. (If you have a 8 pin bell jack let me know if not follow.) connect the red and green at the main jack to the red and green of the new jack. Plug in the DTIM and go. If it is just a plug in the phone directly then i suggest getting three jacks. plug a regular phone cable from tel 1/2 into the first jack. Then connect the red and green to the next red and green. this is the DTIM jack. Then do the same to connect a phone jack for your phone. I have installed lots of simon 3 systems but never with a DTIM> I also install alot of GE Allegro panels and they come with the DTIMs. Are you having it learn in properly? It should be group 39 on the system. At least it is on the other panels.
Good luck.

SOURCE: Using DTIM with digital phone service

It turns out that because Comcast uses VoIP, the Simon can't use it to call in reports. I ended up having to switch monitoring companies to one that specifically uses internet monitoring. The solution was to buy/install a wireless g bridge into the phone output on the alarm panel, and then connect it (wirelessly) to my home network. No major problems since then.

SOURCE: GE Simon 3 Add or Change a Sensor to my system?

You need to use an installer code to add/remove sensors. Depending on what number of digits your alarm code is set for will determine the number for the intaller code. Look in the installer manual for the code. Then follow these steps:

Open the panel.
Key in installer coe
Select Add
Select Sensor/Remote
Activate the sensor you want to add. Some sensors have a button, some have to opened to activate.
Choose sensor name and group. Groups are listed in the manual. Basically, if you want the sensor to arm when the doors arm (such as for a window sensor or door sensor) put it in group 10 or 13. If it's a smoke sensor, group 26; motion detector, group 17 and keyfob, group 01.
Press done when finished and run the test to make sure the system is reading the sensor.

You can purchase a new keyfob from a re-seller. Then reprogram your system and reprogram your fobs to the new installation. Basically it's a reinstall. That will fix you.

How do I change the phone number that my GE Simon Security System calls when the alarm is triggered?


Open the front cover, enter the installer code and "add" the new phone number in "Option 4" as the Primary phone number. "Option 5" is the secondary phone number location on the Simon 3.

I have the Simon 3 security system with one motion detector installed. I didn't set this system up but would like to add another motion detector and was wondering how hard this is to program it into the...


I don't of any system that is simpler to add a device to. The process is in the manual and is something like press "add" on the panel, follow some prompts and press a button on the rear of the motion sensor. Pretty easy if you dont have keypad phobia. Electronic version of the manual is at this location (adding a sensor starts on page 18).

I replaced back-up battery in my GE simon 3 ( 4 hrs ago), however when I perform a system status check I still get the msg "low battery".


You must unplug the transformer to the system before installing the new battery so the system recognizes that the battery is in place. Once you have installed the battery it is safe to plug the transformer back in.
