Try learming the sensor in by removing the back and actavation the tamper switch of the unit. also make sure that the unit is not already learned into the unit and if all else falil default the panel and start over.

Change battery to 998pi sensor


I'm sure you found out by now, based on the age of this question, but just in case, that the 998PI is hardwired and does not have a battery of its own.

User manual for fl09sbk light


It appears this device is rate 10 amps at 230 volts = 2300 watts.
Use at least #14 wire and 15 amp breaker.
Connect wire at connection point on light.
Unit appears to have a transformer, and might make humming sound.
There is override located somewhere on unit. Possibly as a button on the motion sensor

If infrared motion detector requires separate wiring connection, then use following wiring illustration:

Motion sensor will probably have 2 settings.
1st setting for sensitivity, so it will not activate when cat walks up driveway.
2nd setting for time duration, selectable from 30 seconds to 7 minutes

I have a Bravo 3P pet immune PIR and it says on the connector that the contacts are normally closed. Unfortunately they are normally open. Is there something that I am missing? Even the specs on the...


To work properly, this unit has to have normally closed loop circuit. With power applied, and no motion in its sight, should measure 000 ohms (plus any resistor value in series). When activated..the contact should show infinite resistance(open).
You are only missing something if you're testing it with you in the the motion area.

Trash it otherwise.

Hi! Just had ADT install security system and it is a Simon XT. Door units, motion sensors and control unit are in house. They also put a motion sensor in garage, which is detached. My understanding is...


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

How can I disconnect the motion sensor from the GE Simon 3 Wireless Home Security System?


Your wireless motion detector has been "learned" or programmed into your system. It may be difficult to remove it without a knowledge of how to de-program and you'll also need an installation program manual. A much simpler alternative is to mask off the lens portion of the motion detector. If you are able to open the case cut a small piece of cardboard or heavy stock art paper and place it in between the motion's circuit board and the lens assembly. Once reassembled this will block the detector from seeing motion. If you can't figure out how to open the case another way is to take a piece of cardboard and tape it over the lens face on the outside. Hope this helps.

I have the Simon 3 security system with one motion detector installed. I didn't set this system up but would like to add another motion detector and was wondering how hard this is to program it into the...


I don't of any system that is simpler to add a device to. The process is in the manual and is something like press "add" on the panel, follow some prompts and press a button on the rear of the motion sensor. Pretty easy if you dont have keypad phobia. Electronic version of the manual is at this location (adding a sensor starts on page 18).

How do i set my simon 3 motion detector?


You have to put the motion in sensor group 17. You will see this list near the back of the thick installation manual that came with your Simon. Also, when installing the motion, when it asks you to trip the button on the sensor, all you have to do is take the back off of the motion. You will hear a beep. Replace the back, and continue!
