Hi.

The battery is located inside the Simon. Use a flat screwdriver to remove the panel.

Here an online manual.See page 23.

Connect the battery BEFORE connecting the power transformer.

Regards.

System says low battery ... how do I open it to replace batteries...very confusing!


There are two tabs (and possibly a screw) on the top of the Simon XT panel. Remove srew (if installed) and press the two tabs, pulling forward. Front part of panel is hinged and will rock forward. Battery is located behind front half. It is a 6 volt 1.2 Amp Hour lead acid battery.
You must completely downpower the Simon XT (wall plug in and battery) then replace with new battery first, then reconnect wall power. Close the front panel and snap it closedand replace the screw (if it was installed).You will need to set the time on the panel, following the instructions in the users manual.

You need a new battery. 6VDC 1.2AH. The GSM module runs directly off the battery and it is no longer getting a full charge.

I replaced back-up battery in my GE simon 3 ( 4 hrs ago), however when I perform a system status check I still get the msg "low battery".


You must unplug the transformer to the system before installing the new battery so the system recognizes that the battery is in place. Once you have installed the battery it is safe to plug the transformer back in.

Read the battery voltage with the system on but with the ac power disconnected. I always suspect the battery from experience. Battery needs to be replaced every few years normally(but can vary).

How do I open the system to get to the battery?


The battery is located inside the panel.

Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the slt at the top (front) of the panel and release the catch. The panel will fold down to reveal the PCB panel, the battery and the cabling connections for hardwired sensors, telephone & 9V AC power supply.

The battery has push connectors that can be unpluged for replacement.

Replacement batteries are available from your dealer or via Online security store specializing in GE Simon products.
