Introduction
The CDMA Module V4
for Simon XT and XTi enables

wirele
ss
reporting of all alarms and ot
her system
events from
the

Interlogix
Simon XT & XTi control panel using the CDM
A wireless

(cellu
lar)
netw
ork. Th
e mo
dule
can be us
ed as

the primary communication
path for all alarm signaling, or as a backup to a

telephone
line
connection to th
e central moni
tori
ng
station.
The

wireless alarm
signaling and routing service is operated by

Alarm.co
m. The V4
module also features integrated support for Alarm.com’s
emPower
TM
solution with built-in Z-Wave capabilities.
The module interfaces with the Simo
n XT/XTi
panel
s, fits into
a
sp ecial co
mpartme
nt i
nsi
de
the

panel, and is powered by the
control panel and panel battery.
Compatibility
The
CDMA V4 module is co
mpatible with the Simon
XT
and
XTi
control p
anels.

Simon XT/XTi CDMA Module V4 Installation Instructions Power Up
Reconnect panel battery and AC power. When a CDMA module
is connected to th
e control panel,
the LEDs at the bot
tom of the
module will become active (see Table 3
on page 4). It may take
a fe
w mo
ments
afte r power up fo
r the
LEDs
to be
come active
.
If the LEDs do not
light up
at all,
ensu
re that the mo
dule has
been fu
lly inserted
into
the connector
beneath it then perform
a full power cycle
by fo
llowi
ng these steps:
1. Disconnect the battery leads and unplug the panel power
transforme
r from
AC p
ower.
2.
Veri
fy that
the mo
dule is inserte
d se
curely and
that
the
antenna is sn
apped-in co
mplete
ly.
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 ou
tside
of the
tab ho
lding th
em in
place.
4. Pl
ug the
panel
power transf
orme
r in to
the
AC outlet.

It is important to plug the battery in before plugging in the AC
transformer, otherwise the
panel wi
ll i ssue a “Syst

automatically deleted and must be learned into panel memory
using any available sensor/zone number between 01 and 39.
Cl ock
: The CDMA 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

If the error is
still observed try a different module. Finally, if that does
not
fix the problem try a different panel.
