    This is the manual for Simon alarm panel. It tells you how to activate the voice. However, you may have a short in the wiring like I seem to. How do I know I have a short? When I do anything at the alarm panel, I hear static...very slight static...very low. Also, I was just changing the battery at the alarm panel ..I thought this may bring the voice back..but now that I'm thinking about it, with the system also plugged into the wall, that shouldn't matter, huh? Well, changing the battery did make the "system status" light go out...finally. Anyway, when you open the alarm panel, the voice should come on, if not, hurry up and touch in the area where the speaker is. if the voice comes on, you have a short. Before you do any of this, call your alarm company and tell them you are changing a battery or doing a sensor test and to please put the system in "test" mode for the next 30 mins, hour or whatever time you need. False alarms are costly. I hope this helps.

Depends. Do you mean the chime? If all that is missing is the chime whenever a zone is tripped then simply press the CHIME button on the front panel. If it is lighted solid red then your chime is on and it will talk to you. If chime is off then it wont talk to you at all when a zone is tripped. Good luck.

Ge simon 2 alarm no longer beeps after battery replaced


Probably knocked off the clip on the piezo. Open the box and make sure all plugs are plugged into the circuit board.

When I plug in GE Simon 3 panel it is already armed


Is your Simon 3 new or used? The default Utility Access Code 1 or 2 (i.e. the code you use when you open up the cover) is 654321, 54321, 4321 or 321. The default Master Access Code (i.e. the code you use to arm / disarm without opening the cover) is 123456, 12345, 1234, or 123. The length of the code depends on option 54. Default is 4 digits. If it's a used one that has non-default settings, you can reset memory to factory defaults.
