How do I turn system beeps off for sirens

I have a GE Simon 3 and I have turned off the system beeps for the panel siren but I still get system beeps on the internal and external sirens.
This means everytime I arm the alarm the entire neighbourhood hears it, not to mention wakes them up and everyone else in my house.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

My problem started when the electricity went off so now everytime I open the door the siren goes off. I don't have a manual so how can I get this to turn off.

Get the front cover open by pushing the tab at the top of the panel down while pulling on it. When the cover is down enter the 4 digit master code using the red numbered keys. On the left you will fine a small menu that list different "options". You want to turn "option 1 off." To turn off option 1: Hit the delete key then the option button one time for option one finally push the bigger button in the left bottom corner. I think it's labeled enter or something to that effect. You can listen to the prompting of the panel to know exactly which one to push. After that close the front flap and no more beeping will happen. You will still get the siren in the event of an alarm but trouble conditions and entry exit beeps will be no more. I hope that helps!

Wire nuts are ok if the siren is indoors. Gel filled connectors are better if you are mounting the siren outside because they keep the connection from corroding. The resistor needs to go between the two wires you are hooking up. The color of the wires you will are are generally red and black. If your siren has a yellow wire, you can use it instead of the red to get constant siren instead of the "whoop, whoop, whoop" sound that sirens usually make. Putting the resistor at the siren will make sure that it is supervised. That means that if someone cuts the wire going to the siren, it will alert you at the panel. If you put the resistor at the panel, nothing will happen if the wire is cut.

hook up red and black wires. Red wires to HW1&2 DC Out Terminal. 1 Black wire to HW1 and 1 Black wire to HW2. Resistor 47 Ohm resistor not needed unless siren supervision is turned on as an option. If needed , should go at the speaker, across red and black wires.

I have a GE Simon Security System with a GE Simon 3- X10 Line Carrier Transformer that powers a siren. Since the X10 transformer was installed, I constantly get sensor 'failures.' Although the panel...


X10 is a signal format transmitted over the power lines, there is no special X10 wiring in the house as such. The siren and your outside lights are X10 receivers which are sent a signal from the X10 transformer connected to the alarm panel. The alarm panel sends the codes which are transmitted as X10 to the X10 external devices. Most houses now days have at least two 120 volt feeds coming into the main power panel, this provides the 240 volt required for electric stoves and dryers. Because of the two separate feeds split at the panel, the 60 cycles is usually out of phase with each other. To get X10 to work and stay in phase on each side of the panel you need to have wired a passive coupler across both 120 volt inputs. This coupler keeps both 120 inputs in phase with each other and provides a clear X10 transmit across the house wiring.

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

It might not hurt to try the "Microsoft Solution" and reboot the system. First disconnect the AC power then disconnect the battery. Wait 1 minute then reconnect the battery and reconnect the AC power.See ifyou can arm and disarm the system. Then reconnect the siren and try again to arm and disarm the panel. If the keypads beep it can usually give you an error code that will help you pinpoint the problem.

The alarm doesn't sound when the alarm is tripped


This can be caused by either a blown siren power fuse on the motherboard or a blown voice coil in your siren. It would be best to have someone with an electronic background check this with a volt/ohm meter. If voltage is present at the siren during an alarm but there isn't any sound then you will need to replace the siren. On the other hand if no voltage is measured then you need to find and replace the fuse that sends voltage out from the motherboard to the siren.

Siren does not sound when alarm is tripped, is this something I can correct myself or do I need a tech to come out?


You either have a blown fuse for the siren output or the siren's voice coil is blown. If you are able to open the control panel (they are normally locked) check for fuses on the motherboard (main circuit board) and have them checked. If you have a continuity or meter that measures resistance remove each fuse, check and replace as needed. If the siren's voice coil is blown you will need to replace it with a new one. Some systems use a speaker and some use a siren. Both are different and you will need to determine this first before relpacing.

What resistor is required?


If the resistor is used on a detection circuit, any standard 1/4 watt resistor will work fine. The function of such resistors are to be placed at the end of the line (most distant part of the detection circuit) and the purpose is simply to prevent a undetected short path in the line from going undetected. Such a circuit allows for the detection circuit (also called a loop) to activate both on a short or open in the circuit.
