Interlogix Simon XT Installation Guide - Dual-Path LTE
The Dual-Path LTE Module for Simon XT, XTi, XTi-5 and XTi-5i enables wireless reporting of all alarms and other
system events from the Interlogix Simon control panel over a wireless (cellular) network. In addition to the primary
cellular connection, Ethernet broadband can be added as a secondary communication path as back-up in the event of
an outage. The module can be used as the primary communication path for all alarm signaling, or as a backup to a
telephone line connection to the central monitoring station. The wireless alarm signaling and routing service is operated
by Alarm.com.
The Dual-Path LTE module also features integrated support for Alarm.com’s emPower™ solution with built-in Z-Wave
capabilities and for Alarm.com’s Image Sensor when the Image Sensor daughterboard is added. Two-way voice over
LTE is supported on module firmware versions 185 and above.
The module interfaces with the Simon XT, XTi, XTi-5 and XTi-5i panels, fits into a special compartment inside the panel,
and is powered by the control panel and panel battery.

OK
.
5.
Tap
Interactive Services
.
6.
Tap
Module Status
.

With either panel, module LED L4 blinks to indicate signal strength. For more information, see
LED details
.

An installation location with a sustained signal level of two or more bars is recommended.

Do not exceed the panel total output power when using panel power for the LTE Module, hardwired sensors, and
/or sirens. Refer to the specific panel installation instructions for details.

Only one LTE Module can be used per Simon XT, XTi, or XTi-5/i panel.

The LTE Module draws a maximum of 30 mA average during normal operation. In PowerSave Mode, during or
immediately following an AC power failure, the module will draw only 10 mA on average.

Avoid mounting the panel in areas with excessive metal or electrical wiring, such as furnace or utility rooms.

Leave 12 to 18 inches
of open space around the module antenna.

Do not install the control panel and module in a basement or other below-ground location. Doing so will negatively
impact LTE signal strength.
Tools and supplies needed
The following tools and supplies are required:

Power up
Reconnect panel battery and AC power. When an LTE Module is connected to a powered control panel, the LEDs at the
bottom of the module will become active (see Table 3). It may take a few moments after power up for the LEDs to
become active. If the LEDs do not light up at all, ensure that the module has been fully inserted into the connector
beneath it then perform a full power cycle by following these steps:
1.
Disconnect the battery leads and unplug the panel power transformer from AC power.
2.
Verify that the module is inserted securely and that the antenna is snapped-in completely.
3.
Connect battery leads to the battery. On the XT, make sure to observe polarity (red to + and black to –) and to
keep the wires outside of the tab holding them in place.
Important
: Plug the battery in before plugging in the transformer, otherwise the panel will issue a
System Low
Battery
message regardless of the battery voltage level.

15 Improving wireless signal strength
Guidelines for optimal wireless signal strength:

Install the module above ground level, as high up as possible within the structure.

Install the module near or adjacent to an outside-facing wall of the structure.

Do not install the module inside a metal structure or close to large metal objects or ducts.

Make sure to follow the antenna positioning guidelines that are included with the antenna. Certain antennas must
be oriented a specific way in order to receive signals.

Upgrade the antenna. If using the 1/4 wave antenna included with the LTE module, upgrade to a remote cable
antenna. Contact Alarm.com technical support for antenna options.
As changes are made to the module location or antenna to improve signal strength, request updated signal readings to
verify changes. To request an updated reading, press and hold
[5]
for 10 seconds on the XT or press the

Walking the Customer through New User setup on the Customer Website
This section describes how to help the
customer set up their website account, and only applies to customers on an
interactive service package with an online account. (Skip this step for customers using the module for wireless signaling
only).
Before the customer can configure their website account, the Alarm.com account for that customer must be created on
the Partner Portal, and the LTE module associated with the account must be installed successfully.
To log in and access their account, the customer can go to
www.alarm.com
(or custom Partner Portal
address) to
complete the new subscriber setup procedure.
The customer will need the following:

The website login and temporary password included on the Alarm.com.

Welcome Letter generated when the account was created by the Dealer.

A list of their system sensors and touch screens with corresponding zone IDs.

At least one phone number and e-mail address where notifications can be sent.
Note
: At least one sensor must be learned into the panel to complete the new subscriber setup. If not all sensors and
touch screens were learned in before powering up the module, an updated sensor list must be requested by performing
an LTE phone test or requesting an updated equipment list from the Partner Portal.
