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.

Simon XT "system low battery"


IT might be testing ok, but you need to load test it. It could be the charging circuit but in most cases the battery will show a surface charge that is ok for a short period of time.

System says low battery ... how do I open it to replace batteries...very confusing!


There are two tabs (and possibly a screw) on the top of the Simon XT panel. Remove srew (if installed) and press the two tabs, pulling forward. Front part of panel is hinged and will rock forward. Battery is located behind front half. It is a 6 volt 1.2 Amp Hour lead acid battery.
You must completely downpower the Simon XT (wall plug in and battery) then replace with new battery first, then reconnect wall power. Close the front panel and snap it closedand replace the screw (if it was installed).You will need to set the time on the panel, following the instructions in the users manual.

I have a GE Simon XT. I arm the system. When I return several hours later, the front door doesn't beep when I open it. I have to close/open it again to register. Front door is Sensor 1, Group 10. What...


Can I assume it is a wireless contact we are talking about?

1.) Low battery in tansmitter. Does your keypad display a low battery trouble? If so, ensure you put system in test before replacing battery as not to generate a tamper alarm when opening contact.

2.) Relay in transmitter is sticking. Replace wireless contact.

How do I change the battery in the GE Simon XT panel?


If your system is monitored call the central station first and tell them you are working on it. Then push down on release tab in top center to fold down the front face. Nest step is to use a small flat blade screw driver to push in and release the tab again in the top center and the unit will fold down towards you, hold on to it and you will see the battery compartment. Follow the red and black wires to the battery. Some units have a plastic lid over the battery that requires you to remove to small phillips screws to remove battery.
