GE 60-652-95 Carbon Monoxide Detector

Hi, so I recently bought a carbon monoxide detector for my home and I followed all the directions and for some reason when I press the TEST/RESET button it supposed to have a continuous tone but the carbon monoxide alarm is beeping intermittently and the red and green lights are flashing. Is it because I have it plugged into a power strip? The power strip is mounted on the wall. Is my CO alarm malfunctioning?

The power strip should have no impact.

According to the manual, in test mode you will get 4 beeps, 5 second pause, and then 4 beeps again.

Green flashing is normal power mode.

The red will flash with the beeps in test mode.

Are you using this with an alarm panel?

Well it continuously beeps when I press TEST/RESET. The sound should be a Continuous 85 dBA & 10 ft. Yes, I am using this with my GE Simon 2 security system. I have done a sensor test on it. It passed the minimum transmission beeps witch is 8.

I have already contacted GE Interlogix about this problem.

Based on your description, the test mode is functioning as designed:

The Manual that you provided does not match the co detector that I have

Try this manual instead (you must have gotten someone's "new old stock" if you have this model): http://www.alarmhow.net/manuals/UTC/...e%20Sensor.pdf

Bear in mind, that these units may be fairly old (CO detectors have about a 6 year life span).

Yep, that's the one. So what's the latest compatible co detector that can be used with my Simon panel?

Ok, also any newer GE interlogix sensors will work with older GE security systems?

For the most part. They haven't made any significant changes in the wireless protocol in a long time.

I saw some co detectors that said it only works with the Simon XT V 1.4 and higher. Does this mean that they will not work with the Simon 2 or 3 panels?

The data sheet from the link above only references "Simon" without specifying any models or versions (which it does do with reference to the Concord system): https://s3.amazonaws.com/static.inte...atasht-web.pdf
