GE Wireless Home Security Systems

When you’re making an informed decision about a wireless home security system, GE home security systems should be on your list to check out.

Full Disclosure

Let me say right up front that I’m not a GE rep nor do I represent any home security system supplier. I do not make any money buying or selling GE products. I’m a homeowner — probably just like you — who wants to figure out what sorts of products GE offers. I want to know the names that they’re sold under and all the features and benefits. After that, I can make an informed decision about the best solution for me and my family.

Now, in choosing a home security system, it may be that you will have no choice — you’ll need to go wireless. Perhaps your home is not well suited to running hardwiring, or you want a system that you can install yourself quickly and easily. GE wireless home security systems are available to help you achieve that goal.

One very popular choice is the GE Simon 3 Wireless Home Security System.

Features

This system has an advanced technology in a simple console design. It is smaller and more attractive than a lot of units that came before it. And it’s made by General Electric, so you can’t go wrong there.

The GE Simon 3 wireless home security system is a self-contained unit made up of (but not limited to):

  • Lighting control center with a keypad
  • Control unit
  • Sounder or siren

It is also expandable, using a complete selection of add-on devices that give you a lot of useful functionality.

Benefits

For example, if your kids are old enough to come and go to and from school by themselves, the GE wireless home security system has a latchkey feature which allows you to check, remotely, whether your children have arrived home at the appropriate time.

Another benefit of the GE Simon 3 wireless home security system comes in the way it handles a home intrusion. If an intrusion occurs (or any other problem is identified by one of the sensors), the system can dial up to three different phone numbers. Not only that — once you pick up the call, the system will actually talk to you with a synthesized voice and explain the problem. This gives you the option of making a decision about what to do next — including disarming and controlling the system over the phone. Or, if you have one of the wireless remotes that is available, you can use the remote control to disarm the system.

The GE Simon 3 wireless home security system can even be programmed to call your security monitoring company as well (including a backup number just in case).

Some other features of the GE Simon 3 wireless home security system include:

  • The ability to monitor up to 24 zones wirelessly (including the capability to make two of these hardwired).
  • It supports a two-way radio frequency talking touchpad as well as a hand-held radio frequency touchpad and keychain touchpad.
  • When you are programming the GE Simon 3 wireless home security system, it will use voice cues that support fast and simple programming.
  • It contains a 24 hour backup battery
  • …and much more.

And best of all, perhaps, is that the system is simple enough for you to do-it-yourself.

The GE Simon 3 wireless home security system is widely available for purchase online or at your local home improvement center or home electronics superstore. Prices start at right around $200 and some systems will even throw in a year’s worth of alarm monitoring — for free.

Conclusion

Again, I am not a GE representative, nor do I make any money by recommending their products. I’m just saying that GE offers a complete line of excellent home security system products that you should consider when making an informed decision about the safety and security of your family and/or business.
