panels.


Account Creation













B
efore installing an Alarm.com
LTE

Module in a Simon XT,
XTi
, or XTi
-
5

system, a new customer account needs to be created with Alarm.com. We
recommend creating the account at least 24 hours in advance o
f installation
to ensure that the radio is activated prior to installation.

To activate an account go to www.alarm.com/dealer and login. Under the
“Customers” heading at the top left of the page click on “Create New
Customer”. You will need the following c
ustomer information to create the
account:



Custo
mer Address



Customer Phone Number



Customer E
-
mail



Preferred login name for the customer



Alarm.com Radio Serial Number

At the end of the account creation process you will be able to print a
Welcome Letter for

the customer that has their login information and
temporary password for the Alarm.com website.


Installation








Installation

consists of inserting the module into the panel, attaching the
antenna, and performing
an LTE

phone test at the panel.

Follow these guidelines during installation:



Before affixing the panel to a wall, verify the
LTE

signal level at the
installation loca
tion. On the XT panel, press and hold the 5 key for 10
seconds to view the
LTE

signal level. On the XTi
and

XTi
-
5
panel, enter
‘Programming’


‘Interactive Services’


‘Modules Status’. With
either panel, module LED L4 blinks to indicate
signal strength
. (See
Tables 1
-
5

for LED details.) An installation location with a sustained
signal level of t
wo or more bars is recommended.



Do not exceed the panel total output power when using panel power
for the
LTE

M
odule, hardwired sensors, and /or sirens. Refer
to the
specific panel installation instructions for details.



Only
one

LTE

M
odule can be used per Simon XT,
XTi
, or XTi
-
5

panel.



The
LTE

M
odule draws a maximum of 30 mA average during normal
operation. In PowerSave
M
ode, during or immediately following an A
C
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 in. of open space around the module antenna.



Do not install the contr
ol panel and module in a basement or other
below
-
ground location. Doing so will negatively impact
LTE

signal
strength.


Tools and supplies needed

You will need the following tools and supplies:



Small flat
-
head and Phillips screwdrivers



Screws (included)



Antenna (included)

4)

Insert the module by angling the end of the module where the antenna is
attached downwards, making sure that the edge of the module sits below
the plastic tabs (see
Fig.

3). Once the module

is seated evenly, carefully
push the bottom of the module into the 8
-
pin connector beneath it.

5)

Thread the antenna’s wire through the channel in the bottom of the
panel. This antenna can then be inserted into the wall behind the panel.
The antenna should be placed at least 3 feet away from the panel, and in
order to obtain optimal reception the ante
nna should be
affixed as high
up as possible.

6)

The secondary antenna (pre
-
attached to the module) should be routed
and placed as shown in Fig. 4.

LTE Antenna Routing and Placement




Power Up










Reconnect panel battery and AC power. When
an LTE

M
odule 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
hol
ding them in place.

4)

Plug the panel power transformer into the AC outlet.


It is important to 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.

Phone Test (Module Registration)








To initiate module communication with Alarm.com and the
LTE

network the
first time, perform a “
LTE

phone test”.


To perform a Phone T
est on a Simon XT:

1)

Scroll Down through the control panel menu
until it displays “System
Tests” and Press “OK”
.

2)

Enter the installer code (default 4
-
3
-
2
-
1), then “OK”
.

3)

Scroll down until the panel displays “Comm Test” and “OK”
.
The panel will
display “
LTE

Comm Test in progress” to indicate the test has been
initiated.

Q
uick Phone Test:

1)

On the main screen with the panel disarmed, hold down the ‘3’ key for 5
seconds.

2)

The panel will display “
LTE

Comm Test
in progress” to indicate the test has
been
imitated
.


To perform a P
hone
Test
on a Simon XTi

and

XTi
-
5
:

1)

Press the Status

& Settings ico
n


on the lower right of the home screen
.

2)

Scroll Down and press “Programming”
.

3)

Enter the installer code (default 4
-
3
-
2
-
1), then “OK”
.

4)

Press “System Tests”
.

5)

Press “Comm Test”. The panel will display “
LTE

Comm

Test in progress” to
indicate the test has been initiated.


The Simon XT,
XTi
, and XTi
-
5

panel will let you know when the
LTE

Phone
Test has completed by displaying “
LTE

Test signal sent OK” on the panel
screen. This indicates that Alarm.com has received
and acknowledged the
signal. This does not guarantee that the signal went through to a central
station; it confirms that the Alarm.com Operations Center received the
signal. The central station should be contacted directly to verify that the
signal was re
ceived on the correct account and that the Central Station
routing settings have been set up correctly. The signal may not go through
to the central station if (a) the Central Station Account settings were entered
incorrectly on the Alarm.com Dealer Site
or (b) if Alarm.com was unable to
send the signal successfully to the Central Station receivers. In these cases
the panel will show a “Fail to Communicate” message.


Required Settings for LTE Module





Some panel settings are changed automatically when the
LTE

module is
connected to the control panel. These settings should not be altered. They
are:

Sensor/Zone 40:
Upon initial module power up, the panel recognizes and
learns the
LTE

module as sensor/zone 40 and assigns “
LTE

Module” as the
sensor/zone name. Any device previously residing in panel memory as
sensor/zone 40 is automatically deleted and must be learned into panel
memory using any available sensor/zone number between 01 a
nd 39.

Clock:
The
LTE

module sets the panel clock when it connects to Alarm.com
and then updates it every 18 hours. It is important to select the correct panel
time zone on the Alarm.com website, or the panel time will not be accurate.
If a system is power
ed up before the customer account has been created,
the time zone will default to Eastern Time.

Smoke Supervision:

The Smoke Supervision setting (enables 200s smoke
alarm supervision between panel and smoke detec
tors) for XT version 1.6
and up,
XTi version

1.7 and up
, and XTi
-
5

is not compatible with the
Alarm.com LTE module. This setting will be automatically disabled when the
module connects and should not be enabled at the panel. The default
supervision with the Smoke Supervision setting disabled is 1 ho
ur.

: If the
LTE

module is powered down for a short period of time, buffered
messages from Alarm.com may be received when module power is restored.


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 you make changes to the module location or antenna to
improve signal
strength, request updated signal readings t
o verify changes. To request an

updated reading, press and hold the “5” key for 10 seconds on the XT or
press the ‘Refresh’ button in the “Module Status” menu on the XTi

or XTi

This section describes how to help your customer set up their website
account, and only applies to customers on an interactive service plan with an
online account. (Skip this step for customers using the module for wireless
signaling only).

B
efore the customer can configure their website account, the Alarm.com
account for that customer must be created on the Dealer Site, and the
LTE

module associated with the account must be installed successfully.

To log in and access their account, the custo
mer can go to www.alarm.com
(or custom dealer website 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 De
aler Site.
