Question about GE Security Simon 3 Wireless Home Security System

Can't add sensor

I've got a Simon 3. I open the panel, punch in my code, press add and once I press sensor, it says "option not available." Ok, start over. Open panel, try to punch in dealer code, nothing works. 123,1234,12345, 123456, 654321, 65432, 6543, 654 all do not work. How can I access the programming menu to add a new sensor? The installation manual doesn't say anything.

First you need to have the installer code. Open the fromt panel of thealarm and enter in "4-3-2-1" (Default installer code) If it accepts this number then you can begin to program the doors and windows. If you don't knowtheinstaller code you mayneed to default the system and reprogram everything. If you contact meIcan walk you through the processor.

I have ge simon 3 - Purchased ion micra -g wireless window and door compatible sensors. Didn't come with how to add sensor. Wants me to push button on sensor; where is that button


I'm having the same problem on a used Simon. I think the button is inside the wireless transmitter. It has a spring attached to it. Just press on the spring to send wireless signals to the panel. My problem is I press on the spring and the panel does not receive the signal, even with a $20 fresh Lithium Ion battery from Radio Shack.

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).

How do i program a keychain and the smoke dector


to program any new sensors first you must access the installer menu by opening the front cover and using the red buttons typing in the installers code,(4321) is the default code. once that is done press the add button, then the sensor/remote button, then trip sensor(keyfob by pressing both the lock and unlock buttons together until the system beeps) or (removing the smoke detector from the base until it beeps). Once the sensor has been learned it will say keychain remote, press the sensor/remote button repeatedly until it says the correct location, then press done. then enter group code 01 for the keyfob and 26 for the smoke detector. then done.

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.
