You can silence trouble beeps by arming and disarming the system or by pressing status button; however, trouble beeps resume after 4 hours if the trouble condition as not been fixed. You can turn the trouble beeps off in the programming option 40. This should be done by your security professional because any mistake you could change other parameters in the system and the system may not work correctly. Hope this helps

You can take out a little fuse that is in tha red cable of the battery. That is what the people of SafeMart told me and it worked.

Are you referring to the main backup battary in the unit or one of the sensor batteries? My solution for the sensor battery "low" alarm was to delete that sensor until I got a replacement battery.

Make sure you put the black to black red to red it doesn't matter what order but if you do it backwards then you'll have to guy buy some small fuses. GIve it about 12-24 hours and it should clear from the keypad.

Two nights ago, there was a major power surge in my area and lots of appliances were knocked out. The alarm box AC transformer burnt out. I replaced it but the alarm system, every half hour or so keeps...


It's possible the power surge damaged the panel as well. Disconnect the battery and wait for the AC Loss. You'll get a Low Battery on the keypad. Enter your code + off to silence the beeping. If the panel is damaged, it will shut off and back on when you would normally get the AC Loss. Good Luck.

Our keypad for our alarm will not stop beeping. When I hit the status button it says CPU low batt.


Your alarm system has two power sources, a power transformer that is plugged into an electrical outlet and a backup battery that is located within the control panel box. If the battery is over five years old you will need to replace it. Open the box and you you will see the battery with a set of wires attached to it. Pull the wires off of the battery and take it to a local battery warehouse supply store. They will match it up with a new one. Plug the new battery into the system and your system should restore itself back to normal.

The system battery was low and I replaced it. The system status continues to say that the battery is low.


The new battery may not be fully charges, need to wait a while.
Also try this enter your code + off, again enter your code + off.
If this dosen't work, remove your battery and power down your system.
Wait about 30 seconds, plig in your battery first and then power up your alarm system. You may have to adjust the time.

Let me know.

Low Battery warning on Simon 3 even when I changed it out


temperature affects batteries. if the batteries on the window sensors have been in use for some time it is probably time to change them. Alarm batteries are only expected to last 3 to 5 years with moderate use. If you have close neighbors or live in an apartment complex then false reads could be a factor.

Simon 3 "System Low Battery" after 3 years use


I install these panels.  For the low battery message to clear you need to power the system down completely.  To do this you need to unplug the battery and also unplug the transformer plugged into an electrical outlet.  When you power the system back up, you need to first plug in the battery leads.  Then the transformer.
