How To Replace Temperature Sensor Battery


The Temperature Sensor takes a single CR-2032 Lithium 3V battery and has a life expectancy of up to 5 years depending on placement and usage.

To change your Temperature Sensor battery, remove it from its bracket to expose the battery compartment. Then replace the battery and slide the sensor back into place.

If your sensor is still offline after replacing the battery, skip to the section below for troubleshooting steps.

Is your Temperature Sensor still offline after replacing the battery?

If the sensor does not come back online after changing the battery, it’s possible that your sensor has been offline for too long. The best step would be to remove the sensor from the SimpliSafe® Mobile App and then add it back to your system.

  1. Open the SimpliSafe® Mobile App on your phone or tablet

  2. Choose My System from the bottom navigation bar

  3. Select Device Settings

  4. Tap on the sensor you wish to remove

  5. Choose ‘Remove Device’

Once you have removed your sensor, you can add it back using our Installation Guide.
