Question about GE Security Simon 3 Wireless Home Security System
I ordered a new SAFT 3.6 v replacement battery, and no improvement. The old sensor battery lasted 3 years. Suddenly 2 weeks ago it began to beep every six - eight hours until the Status button was pushed:
"Sensor 13 Downstairs guestroom window. Low Battery."
Sensor 14 is identical and is placed on an adjacent window. It has not reported a low battery ever. I replaced both sensors' batteries today, and now, fifteen minutes later, everything remains exactly the same. Is this likely a sensor failure, sending the wrong message to the Simon 3?
Some batteries are not tested to make sure they are sold with juice, also u need to retest the sensor after replacing the battery otherwise there is no garantee that simon isnt going to talk, but at least he tells you if its still low. id hate to find out when i got home to a empty theft reninvated home though so i appreciate the annoying things considering what im waying\\ pros vs. cons

You have to run a sensor test so the system will recoginize the new battery, open keypad cover type in your code press test till it says "sensor test" once it runs through all points press done, now reset your panel disarm code disarm

The capacitor in the sensor is faulty, you need to replace the sensor.

It should be a 6 volt, 1.3 amp hour battery. you can get them at batteries plus. best bet is to take the old one with you to the store to ensure that it fits.
