I replaced the battery on my GE Simon Security System with a new battery yesterday 27 hours ago and still get the low system battery alarm. I upnplugged the transformer disconnected the batterty and reconnected battery and plugged the transformer in and still get the alarm. This alarm going off every 4 hours and the middle of the night is terrible. Help


Did you run sensor test(drop down cover enter you code pess test button then done button. let run 5 min. close cover press status button If that fixes great. If not, you need multi meter. remove battery put metter on leeds coming off panel. You should see voltage there at least equal to the battery. If not then you may see the the red wire for battery has a lump in it about 1" long that is a fuse. remove wire from panel and meter for resistance/continuity/ohms what ever you want to call it. if there is no resistance or an open ckt then replace that wire.if you see resistance in wire then you have a bad panel.

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.

I have a GE Simon Security System with a GE Simon 3- X10 Line Carrier Transformer that powers a siren. Since the X10 transformer was installed, I constantly get sensor 'failures.' Although the panel status shows a failure, the alarm will still sound if that sensor is opened, so we think it is a false failure. My home also has an X10 system that controls several outside lights from a master panel. The security company that installed the system has been unable to solve this problem. So far, they have replaced all the sensors that have 'failed' (several times) and also replaced the panel itself. This did not stop the problem. Is the the problem due to some type of interferance in the wiring because there is X10 wiring in the home? Can you help me? Where do we go from here other than to replace the X10 transformer with a regular transformer, which means we will not have a siren in the basement. Thank you!


X10 is a signal format transmitted over the power lines, there is no special X10 wiring in the house as such. The siren and your outside lights are X10 receivers which are sent a signal from the X10 transformer connected to the alarm panel. The alarm panel sends the codes which are transmitted as X10 to the X10 external devices. Most houses now days have at least two 120 volt feeds coming into the main power panel, this provides the 240 volt required for electric stoves and dryers. Because of the two separate feeds split at the panel, the 60 cycles is usually out of phase with each other. To get X10 to work and stay in phase on each side of the panel you need to have wired a passive coupler across both 120 volt inputs. This coupler keeps both 120 inputs in phase with each other and provides a clear X10 transmit across the house wiring.

Ge simon I cannot get our ge simon system disarmed. It has six beeps every 30 sec.

The owner of this system is no longer with us. Could you please help me?


You can disconnect the power and the batteries. The manul should tell you how to open it up and see where the batter is. You just need to unplug it.

SCC-343P Security camera cant get video out


I would check the iris on the camera, if it's all the way open, then it's probably not the fault of the camera. What are you using to view the image? Rob

Are parts still available for my fireplace Dormont Model #20 Model #1637N series (1/2" O.D. 3/8: I.D.)?


It is dirty burners. The repairman should have known that and had no reason to bring up the issue of parts unless he either does not know his business or he is dishonest. Either get yourself a burner brush from Home Depot and do it yourself or get somebody else to do it, but not that guy.

GE Simon Security System - help!!


The default for option 10 is 30 seconds and option 11 is 60 seconds. It sounds like option 10 is turned off because when turned off the entry delay is set to 005 seconds. All entries must be 3 digits. You ca set option 10 and 11 from 005-254 seconds. Hope this helps
