FCC compliance


This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the

limits for a Class

B
digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to
provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is
operated in a residential environment. This equipment generates, uses,

and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.

Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for
complianc
e could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.



If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception,
which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is
encouraged to try to correct the int
erference by one or more of the following
measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

Connect the affected equipment and the panel receiver to separate outlets, on
different branch circu
its.

Introduction

This chapter provides an overview of the system and an outline of the steps you
need to perform before you begin installing and configuring your security system.

Product overview

This security system can be used as a fire warning system, an i
ntrusion alarm
system, an emergency notification system, or any combination of the three. The
system (
Figure

1

below
) has three types of components:



Self
-
contained control panel



Devices

that report to the panel



Devices that respond to commands from the panel

Note
: The keyfob and X10 modules have not been investigated by UL.

Figure

1
: Simon XT system


Note
: The universal, lamp, and appliance modules require a
special transformer.

The self
-
contained panel provides the main processing unit for all system
functions. It receives and responds to signals from wireless sensors and wireless
touchpads throughout the premises. For monitored systems, the panel can be
co
nnected to the premises phone line for central monitoring station reporting.

4

Simon XT Installation Manual

You can program the panel onsite from the keypad or remotely using Enterprise
Downloader software. See

Programming

on page 31

for complete onsite
programming instructions.

System components

The system can monitor up to 40 sensors and may use any of the devices listed
in Table 1.

Table

1
: Supported devices

Device

Description

Door/window sen
sor

(60
-
670)

For intrusion protection, install door/window sensors on all
ground
-
floor doors and windows. At a minimum, install then in
the following locations:



All easily accessible exterior doors and windows.



Interior doors leading into the garage.



Doors to areas containing valuables.

Indoor motion sensor

(60
-
639)

Indoor motion sensors are ideal whenever it is not practical to
install door/window sensors on every opening. Identify areas
where an intruder is likely to walk through. Large areas in an

open floor plan, downstairs family rooms, and hallways are
typical locations for indoor motion sensors. For installations with
pets, use the SAW Pet Immune PIR (60
-
807).

Outdoor motion sensor

(60
-
639)

Use outdoor motion sensors to detect motion in a prot
ected
outdoor area. Detected motion in this protected area can sound
chimes.

X10 module*


When the panel is powered using the line carrier power
transformer, the system can work with any of the following
modules:



X10 lamp module (13
-
403)



X10 appliance

module (13
-
402)



X10 power horn/remote siren module (13
-
398)

Freeze sensor*

(60
-
742)

Freeze sensors detect low temperature conditions, which may
indicate a furnace failure. The sensor contains a bimetallic
thermal switch connected to the built
-
in transm
itter. The sensor
transmits an alarm signal to the panel when the surrounding
temperature drops to about 41ºF (5ºC). When the temperature
rises to 50ºF (10ºC), the sensor transmits a restore signal.

Water sensor*

(60
-
744)

Water sensors detect water leaks
and rising water. The detector
is connected to the sensor by an 8
-
foot cable. Water that
reaches both detector contact points activates the sensor,
causing it to transmit an alarm signal.

Simon XT Installation Manual

5

Device

Description

Smoke sensor


(60
-
848
-
95)

Smoke sensors provide fire protection by
causing an alarm to
sound throughout the house. You can add smoke sensors near
sleeping areas and on every floor of the house. Avoid areas that
could have some smoke or exhaust such as attics, kitchens,
above fireplaces, dusty locations, garages, and areas

with
temperature extremes. In these areas, you may want to install
rate
-
of
-
rise sensors to detect extreme temperature changes.
See the instructions packaged with the smoke sensor for
complete placement information.

Carbon monoxide (CO) alarm*


(60
-
652
-
95
)

The learn mode CO alarm alerts you to hazardous levels of
carbon monoxide gas. If dangerous concentrations of gas are
present, the red indicator light comes on, the internal siren goes
off, and an alarm is transmitted to the panel. The panel sounds
its o
wn alarm and reports to the central station.

Key fob*

(60
-
659)

The key fob (keychain touchpad) lets you turn the system on
and off from right outside the home or activate a panic alarm if
there is an emergency. If you have the appropriate light control
mo
dules, you can use key fobs to turn all system controlled
lights on and off.

ELM (encrypted learn mode)

key fob*

(60
-
832)

The ELM 2
-
button key fob is an alkaline battery
-
powered,
wireless touchpad that allows you to arm and disarm the system
and activate

a police or auxiliary alarm. Random encrypted
signal transmissions provide high security to help prevent signal
copying.

Remote handheld touchpad

(60
-
671)

The remote handheld touchpad lets you turn the system on and
off while in the home, turn system
-
con
trolled lights on and off, or
activate a panic alarm if there is a nonmedical emergency.

Water
-
resistant personal help
button*

(60
-
906
-
95)

The water
-
resistant personal help button is a wireless device
used for activating police or auxiliary alarms through

your
system. When the help button is pressed, the light mounted
under the cover will blink and an alarm signal is transmitted.

*
Devices noted have not been investigated for use in UL installations.

Caution:
Do not use outdoor motion sensors for intrusio
n protection.

Planning

This chapter provides information to help you plan your installation to reduce time
and costs.

Planning the installation

This section describes system capabilities to help you get familiar with your
system. The planning sheets contain table
s that let you record the hardware and
programming configuration of your system. Complete all of the information ahead
of time to help prepare for system installation. Refer to
Table

35

on page 66

for
sensor name segments listed alphabetically and by index number.

Control panel location

Locate the panel where alarm sounds can be heard and where the panel will be
easily accessible for operation. Do not install the panel near a window or door
where it can be reached easily by an intruder.

Planning sensor types and locations

The first step to an easy and successful installation is to decide what areas or
items to protect, which lights or appliances to operate, and the best location for
the pane
l, touchpad, sensors, and sirens.

Metal objects, mirrors, and metallic wallpaper can block signals sent by the
wireless sensors. Make sure there are no metal objects in the way when
installing the system.

Use
Table

3

below

and
Table

4

on page 8

to determine the appropriate sensor
type for the sensors you will be adding. Use
Table

5

on page 10

to document the
planned sensor information. You will need to understand the application for each
sensor. For example, keyfobs are typically programmed as sensor group 01
(portable panic) and used to send an intrusion alarm to

a central monitoring
station. This sensor type is instant intrusion, it does not require restoral or
supervisory communication with the panel and it is active in four arming levels:

Cross
-
zoning

Cross zoning (
two
-
trip) refers to two different group 18 sensors that must be
tripped within two minutes of each other to report an alarm to the central station.
Figure

on page 12

shows the path of a person
walking from the kitchen to the
living room. When the person is detected walking through the kitchen, the motion
sensor in the kitchen is tripped, sounding a local alarm. If motion is detected by
the living room motion sensor within two minutes, an alarm r
eport will be sent to
the central station.

Mounting the panel

To mount the panel on a wall, do the following:

1
.

Choose a panel location.

2
.

Run all necessary power, phone, siren, and hardwired contact wires to the
desired
panel location.

Note
: When choosing the AC outlet location for the AC power transformer,
make sure the outlet is not controlled by a switch or that it is not part of a
ground fault circuit interrupt (GFCI).

3
.

Hold the panel against the wa
ll and mark the mounting hole locations with a
pencil.

4
.

Mount the back piece to the wall through the two horizontally centered
mounting holes near the top and bottom using the supplied mounting
hardware. Use wall anchors if no studs are
present (
Figure

4

on page 22
).

22

Simon XT Installation Manual

: Panel mounting hole locations


5.

Connect the chassis assembly to the mounted back piece and let it hang
down. This makes
the terminal strip accessible for wiring various hardwired
components to the panel.

6.

Feed wires through openings in the back piece to be ready to attach them to
the screw terminals or the phone connectors.

7.

Install all screws and tighten gently.

Conn
ecting hardwired devices

The panel has seven screw terminals and two telephone connections (
Figure

5

on page 23
). The screw terminals connect AC power, sirens, and/or hardwired
detectors.

Progra
m sensors and devices before you install them. Follow the instructions in
to add the sensors to panel memory.

Simon XT Installation Manual

23

Figure

: Simon XT terminal connections


HW1 I/O, HW2 in, and HW1&2 DC out terminals

The HW1 I/O terminal is dual pur
pose and can be used for either siren or
hardwired contact connections. The HW2 in terminal is an input only.

Interior sirens

From the factory, the HW1 I/O input is set up for interior siren operation (status
and alarm sounds). HW1&2 DC out provides the p
ositive (+) voltage.

Note
: The total current available from the HW1&2 DC out terminal is 250 mA at
up to 120°F (49°C). A 24
-
hour battery standby for UL Requirements will be met
with a maximum load of 250 mA.

With Hardwired Siren Supervision turned on, sire
ns connected to HW1 I/O are
supervised and require a 4.7 kohm resistor in the circuit. If this terminal is not
used, turn Hardwired Siren Supervision off.

LD105 hardwired interior siren

Interior sirens must always be wired with a resistor in the circuit. F
or circuit
supervision which allows the panel to detect if the siren wire is cut (open),
Hardwired Siren Supervision must be turned on.

Note
: Do not install the resistor at the panel terminals. This does not provide
supervision of the wire.

Connect the LD1
05 hardwired interior siren (13
-
374) to the panel using a 4.7
kohm resistor (included with the siren) as shown in
Figure

6

on page 24

The
resistor must be connected across the siren wires as clos
e to the siren as
possible.

24

Simon XT Installation Manual

Figure

6
: Hardwired interior siren with supervision


Hardwired contacts

To set up HW1 I/O and/or HW2 in for hardwired contacts, make the required
connections as described under below, then proceed to th
e Programming on
page 33 to add (learn) them into panel memory.

You can connect hardwired reed switches (normally closed loop only) to HW1 I/O
(if not being used for a hardwired siren) and/or HW2 in.

Note
: Connect only normally closed (NC) reed switches
to HW1 I/O and/or HW2
in. Other types of hardwired detectors should not be used.

The total resistance of the wire loop must not exceed 3 ohms. This allows you to
use up to 200 ft. (61 m) of two
-
conductor, 22
-
gauge stranded wire.

Connect hardwired reed swit
ches to the panel using a 47 kohm resistor (not a 4.7
kohm resistor) as shown in
Figure

7

on page 25
. The resistor must be connected
at the last switch in the circuit.

Note
: Do not install the re
sistor at the panel terminals. This does not provide
supervision of the wire.

Simon XT Installation Manual

25

Figure

7
: Connecting normally closed hardwire reed switches


Wiring a phone line to the panel

You can connect a phone line to the panel for systems moni
tored by a central
monitoring station or systems that notify users by a voice event notification.

DSL (digital subscriber line) allows the use of multiple devices on a single phone
line simultaneously. For DSL environments, connect the panel line
-
in jac
k to an
available phone jack on the premises. You might also need an inline filter to
ensure panel reporting is successful.

Note
: Avoid connecting the panel to a standard phone (voice) line in this manner.
Other devices in use at the same time the panel
is using the line can prevent
reports from going through.

Full line seizure

Full line seizure allows the panel to take over (seize) the phone line, even if
another device on the line is in use. This method requires that the panel be wired
before all other
phones, answering machines, computers, or other devices on the
phone line. You may need to verify line seizure for UL installations.

Use the RJ31X (CA
-
38A) jack (
Figure

8

on page 26
) when wi
ring for full line
seizure. This lets the user quickly and easily disconnect the panel from the phone
line in case the panel disables the phone line due to a malfunction.

Phone lock

Off

Prevents resetting of phone/reporting related options when a
memory clear is preformed (on) or resets these options to their
default values when a memory clear is performed (off). The
following are not reset when on: account number
, dealer code,
code length, call wait cancel, phone numbers 1 and 2, phone

Auto arm

On

Determines how long the system protests (announces
open/failed sensors) when attempting to arm

with open/failed
sensors, before bypassing these sensors and automatically
arming the rest of the system. The panel protests an arming
attempt when it has not received a restore (close) signal from
sensors learned into restore
-
specific sensor groups. Sens
ors
learned into group 26 (fire) cannot be bypassed.

When this option is on, the panel announces all open/failed
sensors repeatedly for four minutes, then automatically
bypasses the open sensors and arms the rest of the system. If a
sensor is opened during

the exit delay and then left open, the
panel will go into alarm after the exit delay has expired. This
option must be on for unvacated premises and exit extension to
work correctly.

When the option is off, the panel displays all open/failed
sensors once,
then automatically bypasses the open sensors
and arms the rest of the system after the exit delay has expired.
If other sensors are opened during the exit delay, they will also
be bypassed if left open.

Determines when the panel answers a remote pho
ne access or
Enterprise call. Depending on whether an answering machine
exists at the panel location, offsite access to the panel can be
done with a series of phone calls or just one. For offsite access
where an answering machine does not exist, the user o
r
Enterprise operator simply calls the panel location once and
listens for 10 rings. The panel should answer after the tenth
ring.

For offsite access where an answering machine exists, the user
or Enterprise operator must call the panel location, and then
let
the phone ring once and hang up. Wait at least 10 seconds but
not more than 40, and then call the panel location again. The
panel should answer on the first ring.

turned on, the entry delay can be set from 030 to 240
seconds.

Exit delay

060 seconds

Determines how much time you have to leave the premises
through a designated delay door after armin
g the system.
Beeps sound after arming the system to remind you to
leave the armed premises. If a delay door is opened after
the exit delay expires, the entry delay begins. If you arm the
system with no delay and open a delay door after the exit
delay expi
res, an alarm occurs.

No activity tm

If the panel displays and announces Siren 1 Failure:



Turn the hardwired siren supervision option off if a hardwired siren or sensor
is not connected.



Check for the correct end
-
of
-
line resistor in the HW1 I/O circuit.

If the panel displays and announces Low Battery:



Check that the panel backup battery is connected.



Check the panel backup battery voltage. If less than 5.4 volts, replace the
battery and clear the system status me
ssage.



Run a sensor test.

If the panel displays and announces RF Jam, the control panel has detected RF
interference.

If the panel displays and announces that a sensor is open, see “
Sensors

on
page 40
.

If the display shows
Set Time

and announces System Time is Not Set, set the
system time.

Control panel

If the panel displays and announces Invalid, the sensor is already programmed.
Delete the sensor if not programmed correctly.

If the panel

does not beep, turn on the piezo beeps option.

If the latchkey does not function:



The latchkey time may not be set. Set the latchkey time option.



The latchkey may not be enabled. Enable the latchkey by pressing Motions
twice.



The phone number may no
t be programmed properly. Reprogram the phone
number.



The system time may not be set. Set the system time.

Sensors

If a sensor does not work:

Simon XT Installation Manual

65



Make sure the battery is good and installed correctly.



Check for interference from metal objects. Move or ro
tate the sensor.



Move the sensor to a new location.

If a door or window is closed, but the panel announces it is open:



Be certain the arrow on the magnet and the guide line on the transmitter are
aligned and within ¼ inch of each other.



The sensor ta
mper switch may be open (cover off).

If a motion sensor goes off continuously, be sure the sensor is mounted on a
solid surface and the viewing field is free from sources of changing temperature.

If a motion sensor does not respond to motion:



Make sure t
he sensor battery is good and installed correctly. Wait 2 minutes
after installing a new battery to test the sensor.



Adjust the sensor mounting.



Leave the area for 3 minutes, then retest.



The environment may be too hot or too cold. Outdoor sensors op
erate
between 32 and 120ºF (0 and 49ºC).



Dirt or dust may be causing the problem. Wipe the sensor with a clean, damp
cloth.
