  • Can you test just one sensor?? 

  • Thank you for contacting SafeMart. Please see the below steps to test the Freeze and Water Sensors

    Freeze Sensor / Water Sensor

    • Follow the steps above to put the panel in "Sensor Test" mode
    • Take the cover off the "Freeze Sensor / Water Sensor"
    • Press and hold the plastic tab marked "Press to Program" for at least one second.
    • You will then hear the Simon XTi go through a series of beeps.
    • You can then check how many packets were sent to the panel from the "Freeze Sensor / Water Sensor"
  • Can you provide instructions for testing freeze and flood sensors too?
