Question about GE Security Simon 3 Wireless Home Security System

3 Answers

Phone communication failure

Our Simon 3 is hooked up via phone line to our monitoring company that does internal testing every morning at 2:30am...since it is now mandatory to dial our area code along with 7 digit phone #, our alarm has been beeping at that time everytime with a status telling us the we have phone communication failure...area code was programed in with tech telling us that your system will only accept the area code on one of the 2 phone #'s that is being dialed to the alarm company, which still gives us the same problem...is there a fix for this?

    Wow, I am happy to hear that someone else has this same problem. I intend to call the security company for the third time and tell them that they either fix the system free of charge or disconnect it. I'm tired of waking up on the 16th of the month at 1:15 in the morning. I'll let you know if I find out anything.

Yes all good security companies monitor over 800 lines. ask them to program your system to one of there 800 numbers and that should be the end of it.

Pick up your house phone and dial the number that you send your signals to. Listen for the error message from the phone company. If you hear a fax machine tone then its trying to communicate.Make sure you have long distance carrier.If you here the fax machine tone then you may have other programming errors..

Hi,
I have been following your case for a while now and start to think that you should switch to another alarm company, I mean if they can't fix such a simple problem with a tech (!?!?) to me, as an alarm installer, it is unacceptable!, in Canada we had the same problem and did the change and life went on..sorry for my typo mistakes it is because i have a french accident (i am from Quebec, Canada).

Thanks,

SOURCE: non stop trouble beeping every 30 on my simon 3 security system

Two separate problems: Sensor failure and phone communication failure. Most likely, you've not been hooked up to a phone for a while but the system didn't know until it tried to transmit to the monitoring center that you removed a cover on a sensor.

I can tell you how to turn off the panel beeps, "beeps" not only includes the trouble beeps that are driving you crazy, but also the beeps letting you know it's counting down, either when you've just armed it or when you come home right before the alarm sounds.

Open the cover and enter your code using the red numbered buttons inside there. It doesn't beep when you press buttons, so press them well. When you've done it right, it will tell you to choose from the Start Menu. Choose "DELETE". Then, from the Main Menu, choose "OPTION #". Then press DONE. You have now turned off beeps. You haven't fixed anything and that sensor still isn't working but it's not beeping to get your attention now. Press SYSTEM STATUS two times to hear it tell you what's going on.

To turn beeps on again, open cover, enter code and choose ADD > OPTION # > DONE.

Changed battery on simon 3 monitor but now phone line is down


If, as you say, you just changed the battery and had no phones right afterward it's likely that you accidentally loosened the phone jack inside the back of the panel(accessible when unit is opened to change the battery). Remove and then re-insert the phone-jack clip, usually on a wide flat cable, and carefully tuck/fold the wires in the hollow area so no pressure is on the phone jack & wire;recheck phones.

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.

Clarence,

If the problem is the Communication Failure, try to reprogram the Home Security System. The codes that you need are indicated in the user's manual. If reprogramming the Simon would not resolve the problem, try to get the master code from the manufacturer.

Reprogramming the device should resolves the issue.

Todd, when you trip the system does it seize the phone line. (meaning does it cut off the plone line to your house phones.) if not you have a wiring problem. also security systems are designed to talk to the monitoring stations reciever on standard pots(annalog) phone lines, not on a dsl line with out a dsl filter. not over voip lines,. you may want to see if your monitoring station can connect to your system remotly. any good security company should be able to do this for you. if they cant you may want to look for a new company.
