Question about GE Security Simon 3 Wireless Home Security System

1 Answer

Phone problem I have a Simon 3, and it is connected to my only phone line, with nothing else in front of the telephone line. My phone service is through verizon FIOS. For some reason, I can not call my system and do remote access, it never picks up, I also can not get it to contact my cell phone if an alarm occurs, Any ideas what is going on here? It's basically a useless.

    I have a Simon 3 alarm system. I have 4 window/door sensors. I programmed my cell phone's 7 digit telephone # into the system and it worked beautifully for a couple of months and now nothing that I do makes it work again. I deleted the tel. # and then re-entered it. Telephone lines were placed direct from the control unit to the wall outlet. Cell phone charged up. Nothing helps. Pretty frustrated at this point. Thank you.

Remote Access is an option that you would have had to enter in the programming. Generally it is left out because it isn't a very good option. Who monitors your system? Is Verizon FIOS digital phone service, DSL, or what?

This is likely caused by a trouble from the service provider. It is caused by a partial short on the phone line. The service provider can usually test the line remotely when you call the trouble in. Occasionally this problem is caused by faulty equipment(phone, answer machine, modem, etc.), bad line cord, bad outlet or bad building wiring. Inside the outside telephone interface box there is a modular test jack that has a short line cord connected. Remove this line cord and connect a standard telephone to test the phone line. Make a call to your number, if the problem occurs with the phone connected to the test jack, then the problem is with the service provider. If the problem does not occur with the phone connected to the test jack then the problem is in the building wiring, outlets, line cords or devices connected. Use a process of elimination to determine where the problem is. Example: disconnect all phones and devices and line cords, make test call with one phone connected, if problem continues inspect outlets and wiring.

I have a ge simon 3. I would like to do my own monitoring by cell phone or broadband. Can I do this without using a monitoring service?


No, I'm sorry your system is made to connect with a specialized computer at a monitoring service. This computer is designed to recognize a format (language) and data transmission from your system. An ordinary pc computer does not have this capacity. However, there are several companies that make a communication device that can be programmed with 3 to 4 telephone numbers that will call and leave a voice message on your cell or other phone numbers. A knowledge of how to hook these units up to your system is recommended. One company is United Security Products (USP), models AD2001 and AD2000. The other is Visonic, model DL125C. Expect to pay about $100 to $150 for any of these units.

I cant connect to two computers at the same time


How to connect....

1- Two Computers:

# We are connect two computers together to share Internet, printer, scanner, files, and even programs

We can do it through either way:

1- Use A Crossover Cable And Two Network Cards.Two network cards are installed in two computers.Then use crossover cable to connect them.

2- Use a Phone Line and Two Special Adapters Sold as "Phone line network Kit". Two adapters are installed in two computers. Then use existing Phone line to connect them.

Connecting Two Computers Wirelessly:

1- Wi-Fi
2- Bluetooth
3- Infrared


Several types of fixtures exist for home networking:

1- Hubs
2- Switches
3- Routers


2- Computer with the internet

Before you can connect to the Internet and access the World Wide Web, you need to have certain equipment. In brief, you must have:

-A computer (preferably running an up-to-date operating system); -
-A modem and access to a telephone line or a local area network (LAN) that is in turn connected to the Internet; and connection software that will allow you to establish an account with a service provider and access the Internet


You Need:

Modem: This converts your digital computer information into analogue telephone signals. Phone Line: his may be your biggest expense after the equipment.

Internet Service Provider (ISP): ISP has a permanent connection to the Internet.

ADSL: a newly standardized transmission technology facilitating simultaneous use of normal telephone services, data transmission of 6 Mbit/s in the downstream and Basic-rate Access (BRA).

ADSL facilitates the simultaneous use of normal telephone services, ISDN, and high speed data transmission.

Another advantage of having an ADSL line is not missing calls while you're online, as both voice and data can be transferred at the same time.

Need to connect ans. machine to single line on a multi line business phone. Help!


Out of box, the AT&T 1738 is designed to operate on a single telephone line. I don't know of any device on the market today that could automatically switch it between multiple telephone lines.

Some options include (in no particular order):

1) Purchasing additional 1738s to cover the other telephone lines.

2) Some cordless telephones on the market are designed to handle 2 telephone lines. Their answering machines will cover both lines. AT&T and Panasonic offer such phones.

3) Check out AT&T's line of NoKSU small office telephone sets. The phones will handle up to 4 telephone lines and 1 model features a built in answering machine. In order for the telephones to function 100% all phones would have to be replaced with the models within the AT&T NoKSU family.

4) If this is strictly a business application, consider purchasing a true business telephone system for the office.

an easy fix is to get a dsl filter for your system and reconnect it back up to the telephone line.

DTIM with digial phone service


I install these types of alarms.
First, What is usuallly plugged into the cables main box? Usually it is a jack. This would run to the main phone lines in the house, and allow you to have service at alll the jacks in the house. If this was not the case, then you usually just plug your phone in directly. Either way, the tel #1/2 on the main box is the same principal as the two main lines comming in off the street with the phone company. If there is a jack, get another and a peice of 2/4 strand wire. (If you have a 8 pin bell jack let me know if not follow.) connect the red and green at the main jack to the red and green of the new jack. Plug in the DTIM and go. If it is just a plug in the phone directly then i suggest getting three jacks. plug a regular phone cable from tel 1/2 into the first jack. Then connect the red and green to the next red and green. this is the DTIM jack. Then do the same to connect a phone jack for your phone. I have installed lots of simon 3 systems but never with a DTIM> I also install alot of GE Allegro panels and they come with the DTIMs. Are you having it learn in properly? It should be group 39 on the system. At least it is on the other panels.
Good luck.

Download the manual. I can't remember if it is in the User's Manual or the Programming Manual but a sequence to reset the security code is detailed in one of them. Also, it soulds like the telephone line was wired through the system for full seizure. To defeat this, you will need to take it out of the phone lines at the outside telco box. How it is wired is that the alarm panel intercepts the telephone line first and then feeds the circuit back out to the main junction where the telco comes into the house.
