Simon XT Talking Touch Screen Quick
Operation Guide
The Simon XT Talking Touch Screen is a color 3.5 inch LCD
screen with a graphical user interface designed to control the
basic functions of your Simon XT
(v1.3 or later) control panel.
You can use the touch screen to
obtain the status of your
home (open doors, movement det
ected, etc.) and to control
your security system:

Arm the system (doors, windows, and motion sensors).

Disarm the system.

Activate a panic alarm to call the central monitoring station
in a nonmedical emergency.
This touch screen works with both Simon XT v1.3 and Simon
XT v1.4. To determine your panel version, go to your Simon
XT panel and use the scroll up button to view the version.
Select Enter to return
to the panel display.
Depending on the system conf
iguration provided by your
dealer, you may also have the following options:

Turn system controlled lights on or off.

Lock and unlock system-controlled door locks.

View and modify home temperature.

Access limited online reference information (for example,
weather forecasts).
This document provides basic operation information for
your touch screen and security system. Contact your dealer for
configuration and option details. For complete Simon XT
system programming and operation, refer to the panel
Home screen
There are multiple ways to reach the Home screen:

You can access the Home screen by using the close icon,
which will return the touch screen
’s display to the previous
screen. Depending on what display the touch screen is
currently in, you may need to move through multiple levels
of screens to reach the Home screen.

The Home screen will appear after a period of inactivity on
any screen (unless you set a blank screen as your default
screen saver).

When the panel enters an al
arm, the touch screen will
automatically return to the Home screen.
The current time is located at
the top center of the Home
screen. The time is automatically updated periodically by the
security system time.
Emergency button
In an emergency, touch the Em
ergency button. An Emergency
screen appears. Depending on your system, you may see
either one button (Panic) or three buttons (Panic, Police, or

service, the authorities will be notif
ied. Contact your dealer for
If you initiate an emergency alarm by mistake, you can cancel
the alarm by touching the red Alarm button and entering your
code within 30 seconds (typical time limit, contact your dealer
for more information on your system configuration).
If an alarm occurs in your secu
rity system, an alarm message
will appear at the bottom of the Home screen. The message
will indicate the time the alarm occurred and the sensor that
sent the alarm. For example,
the message might be, “10:30a
sn x Front Door”, indicating the front door sensor sent an alarm
at 10:30 am.

status of your home. When you
