Remove the mounting plate (on the back) and press the button, or trip the tamper.

How to reset/fix an indoor motion detector?


Depends on the model of the detector, but wireless motions are not supposed to light up; if they light up they have been put into test mode, either by opening the tamper switch, removing and reinserting the battery, or by positioning an internal jumper to the test position. If the motion is a 5890(PI), remove the batteries and short the empty battery sockets for about 30 seconds to reset the low battery circuit, then reinsert the batteries and close the cover, making sure the tamper switch is properly closed. Other motions don't need this reset procedure, but do need all tamper switches closed. Ensure no one is moving near the motion and reset the keypad by entering your code plus Off (just like coming home). If everything is right and all other devices closed the ready light should come on.

I have a Bravo 3P pet immune PIR and it says on the connector that the contacts are normally closed. Unfortunately they are normally open. Is there something that I am missing? Even the specs on the...


To work properly, this unit has to have normally closed loop circuit. With power applied, and no motion in its sight, should measure 000 ohms (plus any resistor value in series). When activated..the contact should show infinite resistance(open).
You are only missing something if you're testing it with you in the the motion area.

Trash it otherwise.

I am trying wire a motion Senior its has 3 wires coming out the back red white black


To connect a separate motion detector to a light fixture (and assuming the fixture uses incandescent or the newer twisted florescent light bulbs), the RED wire from the detector is attached to the black ("hot") wire from the fixture; the WHITE wire from the detector is attached to the white wire from the power source; the BLACK wire from the detector is attached to the black ("hot") wire from the power source. Sometimes the white and black wires from the power source are mixed up, reversed. So it is best to check to determine which wire is actually "hot" (shows voltage in a meter between the wire and the ground wire or the metal box the power wires come from). In general, a colored wire (often black) in the power source, if wired properly according to accepted custom, will be "hot" and 120v in US. The white wire in the power source is called the "neutral" and should be neutral with the ground wire and/or the metal box. If there is another colored wire in the power source (often red) and if it is not taped with some black tape (to indicate it is really a black wire), then it too may be a 120v. hot wire, but it may also be an 120v. hot wire that is 120v opposite the other 120v wire. That is, one 120v wire is 120v+ and the other is 120v- The difference in voltage between these 120v wires + and - is, hence, 220v. If you see multiple colored wires, it is also a good idea to check the voltage between them to know if you are dealing with a power source that entails 220v. In short, you want to know what you are doing, obviously for personal safety, but also to accomplish what you want... to properly connect the motion detector.

How can I disconnect the motion sensor from the GE Simon 3 Wireless Home Security System?


Your wireless motion detector has been "learned" or programmed into your system. It may be difficult to remove it without a knowledge of how to de-program and you'll also need an installation program manual. A much simpler alternative is to mask off the lens portion of the motion detector. If you are able to open the case cut a small piece of cardboard or heavy stock art paper and place it in between the motion's circuit board and the lens assembly. Once reassembled this will block the detector from seeing motion. If you can't figure out how to open the case another way is to take a piece of cardboard and tape it over the lens face on the outside. Hope this helps.

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).

How do i set my simon 3 motion detector?


You have to put the motion in sensor group 17. You will see this list near the back of the thick installation manual that came with your Simon. Also, when installing the motion, when it asks you to trip the button on the sensor, all you have to do is take the back off of the motion. You will hear a beep. Replace the back, and continue!
