Question about GE Security Simon 3 Wireless Home Security System

1 Answer

Cant reset alarm

I have a Simon XT.
While I was setting it up and testing it, I triggered an alarm in the kitchen, which is a PIR sensor in SN 4 position. Now there is permanently an alarm status associated with SN 4 when I hit the STATUS button.
I tried hitting STATUS and then the DISARM buttons, as it says in the manual for clearing an alarm status, but it won't clear. I also tried hitting STATUS and then entering the master code, but that just performs a subdisarm.
If I move the sensor to a new SN position, I can get a STATUS OK when I press the STATUS button, but as soon as I move the sensor back to SN 4, the alarm status comes back.
Basically, it seems to me that SN 4 is now useless. How do I reset it? I don't want to have to abandon a sensor position every time it's had an alarm.

thanks

john

Did you try powering dow the system for 30 seconds then powering it back up. if that does not work i would default the system and start over. sometimes security system control get a spike when your are programing or there just in the idle mode and infor mation get pushed to an unprogramable address on the micro processor and the only way to ourge it is to do a hard reset by defaulting the system.

Note: The default master code is 1-2-3-4 when the security system is shipped from the factory. You should change your code after your system is installed. See Code options on page 26.

If you have already changed the default master code, press the numbers in for the correct code and press enter.

Barring a faulty system the correct code and then 'enter' should sub-disarm or disarm.

LINTECK LS400 WONT DISARM


You have most likely "bought a duffer" I have 30 years experience with alarms.

!. Remove the internal battery, power down the panel.
2. leave "dead" for 10 minutes.
3. reinstate the power, Mains first then refit battery (Make sure terminals are correct for each wire)
4. Retest.

If the above does not work give Lynteck a call on

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.
