ADT Safewatch Pro 3000 Question - replace motion (wireless)

Hello,

Thank you in advance. I have read other threads o this forum and the responses are amazing!

My mother in-law just has crown molding installed and the workman broke the eye shield of one of the wireless motion detectors (zone 12).

Company: ADT
Model: Safewatch Pro 3000

I called them to try to get a replacement and they want to send out a technician ($150 + $50 a half hour).
I mentioned that I installed my alarm (wireless thru another company GE) and they said they do not give out instructions or the codes. I then talked with a manager that said the same thing. mentioned that it would be cheaper for me to buy a new system and install it than to have the ADT technician out for a simple fix (or swap).

Questions:
1. Does anyone know if I can replace the eye shield myself (model: AP950W)?
2. Or can I replace the wireless motion with a new one and reprogram the main panel?

Thank's again for all your help!

The SW 3000 is a modified Vista 20p. This is a constant topic on this forum, and, as long as you have a 2-line alpha keypad, it's easy to swap the device out. Otherwise, the simple solution is to buy the replacement unit and swap the guts from one housing to another.

Swap

I do have the alpha keypad (Vista 20p).

1. what is the best replacement for the wireless motion AP950W?
2. What are the steps to swaping zone 12 (the new motion for the old motion)?

Thank you for your help?

The current production models are:
5890
5890PI
5894
5897-35

The standard Honeywell models work just fine, you don't need the ADT logo models.

Cool

Do you think the second company wanted to get your contract away from ADT?
You can go to ebay buy a motion used as cheap as possible and just replace the front cover. More than likely it's a 5890 or 5890PI same size units. Swap the cover. Done. No change of the unit. 5 min. fix.
