The sensor comes apart. Separate the two pieces and you'll find the battery. Change it out for a new 3.6 Volt battery and voila!

First, make sure you have the correct replacement battery. Go ahead and get a Lithium CR123A battery. These are rather expensive at retail, so do yourself a favor and get as many as you need at an online source such as Amazon. These sensors require one battery. The DSC glass break sensors in our home required two. Our glass break sensor went out within a week of the motion sensor, so I just replaced all of them. YMMV.

Second, determine which way the sensor is housed in the, uh, housing. The "bottom" will have a small tab with a circle in the middle, like the picture below.

As you can see from my incredimazing MS Paint skillz, use your knuckles to gently tap the sensor away from the tab. It should pop right off. This can be annoying if you don't have lightning speed and cat-like reflexes to prevent it from falling behind the entertainment center.

Once the sensor is removed from the housing, push the battery cover off of the battery compartment. Remove the old battery, and install the replacement in the same direction. Put the cover back on, and then align the sensor in the housing until it is flush with the bottom part of the housing. Remember to recycle the old battery if at all possible. Good luck!

I replaced the batteries in the motion sensor and now it appears that I need to learn how to adjust the timing. Is there a manual for the 270 (I think this is the one from the picture)?

u may have to reset the sensor....turn power off .....then remove batteries.....wait 5 min....then turn on power....then replace batteries ......do not move the sensor and wait 1.5 minutes...

My sensor no longer works. It use to turn on the porch light when someone entered the carporch. How do I open the sensor so that I can put new batteries in it? I know that it uses AAA batteries.


Manual for this sensor is not available.
In the Zenith I have installed The motion sensor battery slot was h at the back side of the sensor, you had to remove the sensor from the wall sliding it on one side to access the battery. It mounted two AA batteries, not AAA.

One of my sensor stopped communicating w/ the panel (sensor failure), how do I reprogrammed my sensor so the panel will communicate w/ it?


You either have a bad battery in the transmitter or a bad transmitter. If you replace the battery and it fixes the problem you are fine. If the battery doesn't fix the problem you will need to replace the transmitter.

You need to delete the sensor from the system (The problem is most likely the spring tamper on the cover. Try streching the spring a little bit and that might fix it.

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.

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.
