Alarm goes off went armed as well as strobe won't go into armed mode

We are about to go out of town for the weekend and I armed Simon, the alarm went off and the strobe light was on. so i pushed disarm and the code and it stopped. I ran the sensor test and it said that there was smoke in master bedroom and smoke in the den. We don't smoke and nothing is on fire. It is a very large house and we have a lot of sensors. How can I make sure the alarm will be ready for our trip? Please Help Oh and how do you trip a sensor?

Smoke sensors will trip if dust accumulates in them. Get a can of compressed air like they sell for cleaning the vents in computers and try blowing the dust out. That should reset your sensors, If not you could disable the fire sensors for your trip and get it serviced when you return.

Can the Simon xt be programed so that when you enter the stay mode there is not exit delay beeps?


There is always the exit delay, however, you can arm it silently and with no entry delay. To arm silently, press Door and windows, press silent.
To arm without entry delay, press doors and windows twice. Press silent if also wanting no beeps.

After I arm my Simon 3,the siren goes off. like the alarm has been tripped and nothing has been opened. What should I try?


When you push the status button after the alarm system has triggered, what message does it give you. That should tell you what is triggering.

Have ADT 3000 series alarm system - would like to set it to max


adt sw3000 panel does not support max button on key pad. best solution would be to have ADT tech reprogram Zones so windows are perimeter zones(instant when armed away or stay) and motions interior follower (instant when no perimeter zone was triggered first). doors stay exit/entry.

Problem arming all sensors on ge simon security


I have yet to test it but I think I've figured it out... I spoke to the place I bought the alarm from and he stated that for both the door/windows & motion to arm, you have to leave the house (or activate an exit door) or the alarm thinks you are still in the house. Since the motion is instant on, this prevents you from accidentally setting off the alarm if you armed it and never left.

So what if you want to arm both and stay inside? There is an option called Unvacted premises (in the Timers menu). It's on by default and makes the alarm behave as described above. Set this option to off and you should be able to set both and not leave the house.
