Westinghouse Security System
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.
Westinghouse Security System beeping
Hot is ok in an alarm box, especially inside where you see your finned heatsink and capacitors, if it beeps it might be because you have a communication problem, a weak backup battery or else. Check if you have any codes being displayed on your LCD or LED and check in the signification in your user manual if any. If you are connected to an alarm central they should be able to tell you what is the problem by connecting remotelly to your system. If not, well I need more details.!

Simon 3 "System Low Battery" after 3 years use

Then the transformer.

Double check the alignment of the sensor and magnet, the house may have settled and the alignment may have changed enough to show the fault / set the alarm off. There should be a notch or series of notches on the transmitter, make sure the magnet is centered on that. Also make sure the gap between the two is as small as you get it and still able to operate the windows (both vertically and horizontally). If all that checks out, you could have a tamper switch (GE uses a spring to hold it down) that is not getting fully depressed. or, you may have a bad transmitter. If it is the spring, you may be able to stretch it out a little to ensure good pressure on the tamper switch.

Check the outlet to ensure it :1- has power , 2- is not a switched outlet. Check your wire connections to ensure they are secure. If all of the above are good, the transformer may have shorted when disconnecting. Use a voltage meter on the transformer terminals and the AC scale, check the output of the transformer.
GE simon security system
Depends. Do you mean the chime? If all that is missing is the chime whenever a zone is tripped then simply press the CHIME button on the front panel. If it is lighted solid red then your chime is on and it will talk to you. If chime is off then it wont talk to you at all when a zone is tripped. Good luck.
