GE Simon XT Wireless ShatterPro Glass Break Sensor(NX488)
« on: March 09, 2012, 06:06:42 PM »
I recently purchased a few wireless glass break sensors(nx-488) to my Simon XT. I have added the sensors to my panel in group 13, but i

am having trouble testing the glass break sensors. I have GE approved ShatterPro glass break Tester, but I cannot trip it for the life of

me.  It seems like the tester is just to test the range or coverage. When i set the Simon XT in "sensor test", i try to trip the glass break

sensors with the tester, which mimics the sound of glass breaking, but nothing happened. I try to clap my hands together to trip it,

nothing happens. I used other glass break testers, but nothing happens. I see no beeping or "packets" coming from the panel. I starting

to feel like these glass break sensors is not working. I really need to know that i can rely on these glass break sensors. My question is

how do i trip it or test it for reliability?

Wrong group setting, not 13, it may be 24 or 25, I cant think off the top of my head
