How do I activate the batteries in my SimpliSafe sensors?
Does your Keypad look like the one pictured to the left? Then you're in the right place! You've got the Gen 3 SimpliSafe system.

You will need to activate batteries for each component before using your system. To activate batteries, simply pull on and remove the white protective strip from each component. This strip will be located on the back of all the components, except for the water sensor and base station. The water sensor does not have a battery tab. The base station’s battery tab should be sticking out of the bottom of the base station.
