You do not have to use a monitoring company. Put your own cell phone number in option 05 (no need for pauses unless you are calling an office with extensions). The system calls your cell phone to notify you of any alarm. Also, you can you your cell phone to control the system remotely. I recommend to bring always with you (in your wallet) a copy of the page of the manual that contains all the commands you can use from your mobile phone. I hope this helps.

I don't know anything about the GSM system you've mentioned, but if it connects to the phone terminals then the system can probably be programmed to page you rather than calling an alarm company. There is an entire section in the program guide for alarm paging. However, be advised that you're rolling the dice with security if it's your intention to monitor the system yourself...if the security of your home is important to you I recommend that you have it monitored by a UL certified monitoring center.
Get the front cover open by pushing the tab at the top of the panel down while pulling on it. When the cover is down enter the 4 digit master code using the red numbered keys. On the left you will fine a small menu that list different "options". You want to turn "option 1 off." To turn off option 1: Hit the delete key then the option button one time for option one finally push the bigger button in the left bottom corner. I think it's labeled enter or something to that effect. You can listen to the prompting of the panel to know exactly which one to push. After that close the front flap and no more beeping will happen. You will still get the siren in the event of an alarm but trouble conditions and entry exit beeps will be no more. I hope that helps!
FC means failure to communicate, call your monitoring company to test your systems communication. If your system uses or used your phone line call on a cell phone so you don't get cut off when you system tries to call to monitoring company. gl
If you attempt to disconnect the battery the alarm will go off and you may not be able to reset it. there is a specic code to be set before any maintenance can be done. These codes are all different otherwise there would be no security! Any alarm company would be willing to change your battery and if its a monitored alarm they might also want to take on your monitoring. Call an alarm or security company in your area for assistance
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.
Hi, You need to get the ''installer code'' from your alarm company in order to go into the programming of your system and do the change...and of course the programming manual, please be advised hat if you make any change to your system and something goes wrong your alarm company could charge you in order to fix the problem. Legally, IF you bought the system, you are entitled to get the installer code, the alarm company can't even think to argue about that!.
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).
It turns out that because Comcast uses VoIP, the Simon can't use it to call in reports. I ended up having to switch monitoring companies to one that specifically uses internet monitoring. The solution was to buy/install a wireless g bridge into the phone output on the alarm panel, and then connect it (wirelessly) to my home network. No major problems since then.
