SOURCE: System Low Battery

Response 1 is correct. If you plugged the transformer into an outlet before connecting the battery the system wont see the battery and give you that error. Should be a simple fix however. Unplug the battery and then the transformer, then reverse the process. Plug in the battery and your Simon should power up, then plug in the transformer. If this doesn't help then you should replace the battery. Did you buy the system from a dealer and have it professionally installed or did you do-it-yourself? If it was professionally installed have your technician come back out to diagnose/replace the battery if needed. Good Luck.

SOURCE: Simon 3 "System Low Battery" after 3 years use

I have the same Security System the same problem, with the 2 beeps every couple of hours .
The Control Center called and said the battery on the door connector was low and that was the cause of the beeps not the entire system, I replaced with 2 triple A batteries and no more beeps.

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.

How to open a 2087d Honeywell safe if you lost the battery backup


Honeywell no longer sells the battery back up! I made my own by putting 4 AA Batteries in a series, found a USB cable that matches the plug on the safe door and cut the USB end off the wire. Strip the two wires Red and Black and put the red on the positive side and black on negative side plug it into the safe and put the combo in then turn the handle and open the safe. You can make a battery by going to an electronic store and tell them what you are looking for or if you have a toy at home that has 4 AA batteries you can wire it into that Temporarily open your safe and give the toy back to your kids. LOL

How to reset my pass word on my Samsung Security Video System SDH-B74041


For nearly all Samsung Security DVRs, the default password is 4321. If it hasn't been changed since setup, then you can just use that to access the DVR. The default password is included in the reset procedures for completeness. If you have changed your password or access code for your Samsung Security DVR since it was setup, or if you changed it during the initial setup, use that password in place of the default password. The password will be the latest password that was set on the DVR. If no password has ever been set, then it will be the default.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #1
  1. Reset the unit to factory by pressing both [MODE] and [PTZ] button for 5 seconds
  2. Then enter the 4321.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #2
  1. Reset the unit to factory by pressing both [MODE] and [CH2] button for 5 seconds
  2. Then enter the 4321.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #3 This reset will work on Android based DVRs only. All steps are performed on the device itself.
  1. Turn the device Off
    Wait 2 minutes
    Press and hold the following buttons
    • POWER,
    • HOME
    • VOLUME UP
  2. The unit should power on. Once it does, you can release power.
  3. Use the volume UP and Down buttons to select "Wipe/Factory Reset" from the recovery menu.
  4. Activate the reset using the HOME button.
    When the DVR goes through it's setup again, it will be at factory defaults. The password will be 4321.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #4 This reset will work on SDR models. It may also work on other models.
  1. With just the cameras showing, press the following in quick succession using the remote:
    • Freeze
    • Alarm
    • Freeze
    • Alarm
    • Freeze
    • Menu
    • Enter
  2. Make sure you press them quickly, one after the other. If it doesn't work the first time, try doing it several times. It can take many tries to get the timing right. If/when it works, you should get a screen that gives you the option to reset.
Samsung Security DVR Reset Procedure #5 This reset will work on SDR models where procedure #4 failed. It may also work on other models.
  1. Press the DVR Button to place the system in DVR Mode
  2. Press:
    • Freeze
    • View
    • Return
As with Procedure #4, you may need to press Freeze, View, and Return in in quick succession a few times to get it to work. The timing can be tricky.
These reset procedures cover many Samsung Security DVRs, but not all. I will add reset procedures to this article as they become available to me. By design, Security DVRs are made to be secure, and not all of them can be reset by the consumer. If you have an urgent need related to your Samsung Security DVR, you should contact Samsung directly at their support page Samsung Support, or by calling: 877-349-3149. For less urgent matters, you can email them directly at Email Samsung Support. Support is available 7 days a week, 9:00 am - 9:00 pm EST.

Gone are the days when heavy chains used to fetter the main iron doors working as an extra security for the house. Times have changed and so have our security trends. The traditional iron gate designs still hold ground for many though, but with certain modifications.
