My interior motion sensors go off about the same time each night and once I turn off the alarm and reset the system they do not go off any more. What could cause this?

SOURCE: Sensor alarm notice on GE Simon 3 system

Most likely it is remembering a alarm at that station. If you enter your alarm code following the "status", it will clear it. (That's how mine works)

SOURCE: Motion sensor disarms itself

the system is set up to bypass the motion if a door hasnt been opened during the exit delay. you can either open and close a door everytime you arm the system or if you have access to the installer you can delete option 52 and that will fix your problem

SOURCE: Hi! Just had ADT install security system and

My understanding is that GE does not produce a wireless interior siren any longer. So if yo want to get a siren in the garage a wire will have to be run from the Simon 3 to the location in the garage where you would like to place the siren. PS ADT will not run wires to a detached garage. GL

Why is the alarm going off at random times through the night?!


You must have a defective intrusion sensor in the system.

How to set & cancel theft deterrent system or how to set & cancel security...


Theft deterrent system (on some models)

Theft deterrent system is designed to deter vehicle theft. The system flashes the turn signal lights and turns on the interior light or the signal lights only (depending on the model), and sounds security horn and vehicle horn when it detects abnormalities such as follows:

• Any door or hood is forcibly opened.
• The batter terminal is disconnected and then reconnected
• The system control is disconnected and then reconnected.
• Abnormal impact is detected when the impact sensor function is on.

The system flashes the turn signal lights and turns the interior light or the signal lights only (depending on the model), and sounds security horn and vehicle horn if someone attempts to damage or break into your car.

Setting the system

You can set the system with or without the impact sensor function. For details, see "Canceling the impact sensor" below.

1. Turn the ignition key to "LOCK" and remove it.
2. Have all passengers get out of the vehicle
3. Push the lock (set) switch on the wireless remote control key once. At this time, the turn signal lights flashes once and the security indicator light comes on.

The system is set after 30 seconds. At this time, the security indicator light start flashing slowly.

Once the system is set, you cannot start the engine until you cancel the system.

The system will not be set in the following cases.

• When any of the door is open; security horn sounds for 1 second, close the door and set the system again.
• When the hood is open; close the hood securely.

Canceling the Impact Sensor

The impact sensor can be cancelled to prevent false alarms from being triggered incase of the following conditions:

• When parked in the noisy area
• The vehicle body or glass is subjected to a strong impact from the (such as in highly pressurized car wash).
• When transporting by a car carrier or ferry.

To cancel the impact sensor;

1. Lock the door by pushing the lock (set) switch on the wireless remote control key once, and turn signal light flash once
2. Then push the lock (set) switch twice within 5 seconds. At this time, the turn signal flash 5 times to indicate the impact sensor function is disable.

The impact sensor is deactivated as long as the system remained armed.

Canceling the system

The system will be cancelled by the following two ways:

• Turn the ignition key from "LOCK" to "ON" position.
• Unlock any of the doors by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch

If the turn signal lights flash 3 times, the system has been alarmed. Check to see if there is any abnormality with your vehicle.

If any of the doors is not opened within 30 seconds, all doors will be automatically locked and the system will be set.

When the system is set

Activating the system; When the system detects abnormalities such as follows, it flashes the turn signal lights and turns on the interior light or the turn lights only (depending on the model) and sounds the security horn and vehicle horn of 30 seconds.

• Unlocking any door without using wireless control
• Any door or hood is forcibly opened.
• The battery terminal is disconnected and then reconnected.
• The system control assembly is disconnected and then reconnected
• Abnormal impact is detected when the impact sensor function is on.

Reactivating the alarm;

Once set, the system automatically resets the alarm after the alarm stops.

The alarm will activate again under the same circumstances described in "Activating the system".

Stopping the Alarm

The alarm will be stopped by the following two ways;

• Turn the ignition key from the "LOCK" to "ON" position.
• Unlock any of the doors by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch.

The system can be cancelled by these ways at the same time.

If the battery becomes discharged due to the vehicle being unused, for a long time etc., when the battery is recharged or replaced, the system will activate the alarm. If this happens, immediately unlock any of the doors by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch, and the alarm will stop.

Testing the system

1. Set the system
2. Insert a wireless remote control key into the key hole on the driver's door handle, and unlock the door.
3. Open the door, and an alarm will sound.
4. Stop the alarm by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch.
5. Repeat this operation for the front passenger's door.

Good luck.

Why do my alarm keep coming on when the car is locked


Common problems are the interior motion sensor and the hood switch. Try disabling the interior sensor by pressing the lock button on the key twice and see if it helps.

I have an ADT security system, the DCS alarm panel lcd5501z panel bypass motion sensors will not reset. The door and window sensors work fine when the alarm is set. but the interior motion sensors stay...


I would power down the main cabinet for 1 min. And unplug the battery in the cabinet. Most of the time this cabinet ( panel ) is located in a closet and contains the main brains of the system. Sometimes there is also a reset on the motion but when used, it can put the motion in test mode. You can also check the batteries in the motion ( if its wireless) The first thing I would do is power down everything and disconnect the battery. This resets and works 90% of the time. You might need the key to get into the box.

I have a MOD 600 alarm, installed about 9 years ago. Every time I pass a sensor the alarm makes three beeps. How do I stop it?


Hello. This is a normal response to the motions detector while people are active within the home.
The alarm is a semi active mode that is the motions detector will beep, if a door is open there could be active voice alarm or beeping from Central alarm within the home. The same will happen if a window is opened, beep,beep,beep.



In this mode it lets the home owner while in his/her home that the alarm is on and it will let you know when the doors, windows or floor pressure sensor is activated.



There another mode for the alarm system that is if you have pets. It can be activated that only things that are inactive is the motion and pressure sensors. They beep but will not execute the full alarm system.



The there is full alarm system activation where every sensor is operational----full Alarm On....



Now, if you don't like the beeping, then you can turn the alarm system off while you or your husband is in the home. But it will not notify you if the door, window, motion, pressure sensor are activated. I hope this help you. GB....stewbison

Button inside middle of the doors?


The red button you are describing turns off the interior motion detector when you arm your anti-theft system. For example if you were to leave a pet in the car, it would turn off the interior motion detector. I don't recommend that you leave a pet in the car in hot weather or cold. But that is the function of that button. Also if you were to stay in the car and arm the anti-theft alarm it would keep you from setting off the detector that monitors motion inside the car. I don't know why you would want to arm the anti-theft alarm when you are inside the car, but you could if you wanted to. The next time you lock or unlock the car the interior motion detector will automatically be reactivated. Each time I use the remote to lock all the doors the alarm system is activated. I am not an expert, I have only had my 1998 Audi a4 2.8 for a week, so I am just learning about the car. Hope this helps. Vidar

Manufacturerscar alarm


My alarm is triggered when I leave the windows down a bit. There's a motion sensor for the interior of the car (I think it's thermal), so when a breeze blows cool outside air through the car's hot interior, it triggers. The interior sensor can be turned off by pressing the button just behind the driver's door and in front of the rear door. Try turning that off and see if it makes a difference. Post a comment with the results.
