How do you remove the control panel on Simon 3?


There is a couple steps in removing this panel. First, unplug the unit and then locate the tab on the top of the unit, it has to be pushed down. When the tab is pushed down the first faceplate should drop down, exposing the keypad with the menu options. Second, you need to get a small flat head screwdriver and put it under the clip at the top of the panel. You can locate it by finding where your pushed the original tab down; it's right below that. Once you have your screwdriver under the small clip, push the clip up and pull the 2 faceplate towards you. Finally, after the second plate is down, unscrew/unplug the wires from the panel, unscrew the mounting panel and your done! Beware, depending on how your alarm is hooked this can cause a short to your household telephone lines causing them not to work!

The low battery alarm is sounding for both the console, AND the remote - which I do not have. The ADT people can't come out for another week. How do I silence the beeping? I turned off the status beeps...


The Simon 3 supervises the panel battery and when it's bad or the a/c has been out for a long time..will likely have to charge the battery. A problem arises where the keypad unit will not acknowledge that the battery has been recharged/replaced without you doing a basic power cycle.
Whenever this panel battery is replaced in a Simon 3 (worn out or depleted from no A/C (power-outage)) you should disconnect the A/C adapter, install the new or recharged battery properly and hear the panel tell you it's ok..."..simon ???? is OK.." and THEN plug in the A/c adapter. Assuming the panel is not damaged..it will talk when a suitable battery is installed with the A/c out. If it doesn't talk..check the battery with a test meter. Voltage over 6 volts(approx) is required to make it talk.
Of course, after a total power cycle you will have to set the clock.

Remotes(key fobs) aren't usually supervised (as they are carried away from the site) so it's unlikely it's referring to a key fob low battery. Might you be talking about a remote keypad or device in another part of the house or garage that may have low batteries..finding it and checking the batteries will clear the second part of your beeping.

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).

GE Simon 3 Add or Change a Sensor to my system?


You need to use an installer code to add/remove sensors. Depending on what number of digits your alarm code is set for will determine the number for the intaller code. Look in the installer manual for the code. Then follow these steps:

Open the panel.
Key in installer coe
Select Add
Select Sensor/Remote
Activate the sensor you want to add. Some sensors have a button, some have to opened to activate.
Choose sensor name and group. Groups are listed in the manual. Basically, if you want the sensor to arm when the doors arm (such as for a window sensor or door sensor) put it in group 10 or 13. If it's a smoke sensor, group 26; motion detector, group 17 and keyfob, group 01.
Press done when finished and run the test to make sure the system is reading the sensor.
