The GE Interlogix Simon XTi® is a cost-effective security system that offers up to 40 zones of burglary and fire protection, and which complies with SIA False Alarm Standards. With a built-in 3.5" touch screen display touchpad and a status speaker that provides visual and voice messages for feedback, Simon XTi is well suited for houses, apartments, and condominiums. Optional cellular 3G reporting and Alarm.com features support off-premises control to arm and disarm the system, check system status, activate no-entry delay, or activate the latchkey feature.
The Simon XTi panel comes standard with 40 wireless zones, or it can be set up with 38 wireless zones and two built-in hardwired supervised burglary zones (normally-closed loop only). The built-in radio receiver works with both crystal and SAW LearnMode™ sensors. Simon XT supports convenient system operation from anywhere within the premises with the use of wireless two-way talking touch screens and/or touchpads. Optional keyfobs (two- and four-button versions) can also be used for convenient local system control. In addition to using the Simon XT as a security system, optional wireless Z-Wave® devices can be added to provide control over other functions for added convenience. These devices include Z-Wave® compatible wireless lighting control devices, wireless thermostats, wireless garage door sensors and more!
Simon XTi can send messages to the GEOARM central monitoring station using SIA or Contact ID (CID) formats. The XTi control panel can also report alarms to another land-line phone location or cell phone using voice event notification. Built-in two-way voice capability with VOX (Voice-Activated Switching) provides additional security and emergency contact with GEOARM's central station monitoring operators.
This Simon XTi security system is backed by GE Security's 2 year limited manufacturer's warranty and features a large LCD touch screen display for easy viewing in the dark. The Simon XTi all-in-one security system is compatible with GE's full range of wireless security devices. Each GE security device uses radio frequency (RF) technology to wirelessly send its alarm signals back to the Simon XTi security system. You can upgrade your Simon XTi security system with up to the (40) total wireless security devices. Please note, GEOARM includes (4) wireless devices in the base package, so make sure you do not add more than (36) additional wireless security devices to your system. Please note that every wireless device counts for one wireless zone.
The GE Simon XTi security system can send its alarm signals over a traditional phone line or by using an approved VoIP service provider. Simply plug in the Simon XTi transformer to an open wall outlet and plug in your active phone or VoIP connection to the jack on the back of the Simon XTi alarm control panel. You will need long distance service turned on for the phone line alarm communications to work with GEOARM's central station. Make sure that your Simon XTi installation location has an open phone jack and wall outlet nearby.
GEOARM also recommends installing the Simon XTi wireless security system in a location that is not near an entry/exit door such as a utility closet or a master bedroom. If the Simon XTi alarm control panel is installed at an entry/exit door, there is a risk that an intruder destroys the panel before the entry delay times out. In this instance, GEOARM's central alarm monitoring station would not receive the alarm signal since the alarm control panel and alarm communicator were destroyed. A Simon XTi wireless talking keypad (60-924-3-XT) or Simon XTi 60-924-3-XT wireless touchscreen talking keypad (60-924-RF-TS) installed at the entry/exit door would provide full system control and allow you to install the Simon XTi alarm control panel installed in a secure remote location.
