Introduction

The
Simon XTi
-

uses wireless technology to warn your family about intrusion,
carbon mo
noxide and fire. The system communicates with a central monitoring
station and sends voice messages to an offsite phone.

The security system uses sensors that communicate alarms to the control panel
using radio waves. The system is supervised, meaning that

the panel checks the
status of each sensor to detect problems. If the panel detects trouble, it will notify
you with displayed and spoken messages, beeps, and indicator lights. A Simon
XT

Description

Control panel

You can enter commands for your security system using the graphical
user interface on the panel. Depending on how your system
is
programmed, you may need to enter an access code for certain
commands. An access code is a numeric code that allows
authorization to operate your security system.

Simon XT talking touch
screen

The two
-
way talking touch screen is a wireless device that
provides a
graphical user interface that allows you to: arm the system (doors,
windows, and motion sensors), disarm the system, activate a panic
alarm to call the central monitoring station in a
n

emergency, check
system status, and turn system controlled l
ights on or off, all while
providing voice feedback. The touch screen also provides trouble
beeps, entry/exit beeps and alarm sounds (
Panic, Police, or
Fire).

Key fob

Key fobs are handy for simple arming and disarming control functions.
They are portable
and can be carried offsite in a purse or pocket.

Telephone

Touchtone telephones can be used to communicate with your system
while you are offsite. Ask your installer if you have this feature.

Note:
The default master code is 1
-
2
-

Note
:
Upon initial installation, the battery may not be fully charged for

as long
as 36 hours. A low battery icon will be present and trouble beeps will sound
until the battery is sufficiently charged. After the initial charge, should the
panel lose AC Power and experience a low battery condition, the icon will
appear and troub
le beeps will sound unless silenced. You can silence trouble
beeps by:





Arming or disarming the system.



or




Pressing the STATUS & SETTINGS icon and pressing LISTEN next to
Panel

Status.

This will disable the sounder for 4 hours but the trouble i
ndication will remain
until the battery is recharged.

not work from a key fob. Autobypass must be on for this feature to work.

Ask your installer how this option is programmed.

Swinger shutdown

This setting det
ermines if a sensor or zone will go into alarm only once during an
arming period (an active arming level) and will not be active again until the alarm
is canceled (
S

Exit/entry delay

Your
Simon XTi
-

provides a delay after entering or exiting your home before the
system is armed

or disarmed
.
Table

6

below

provides details for the entry and
exit delay features.

Table

6
: Entry and exit delay details

Function

Description

Entry delay

Some active sensors cause immediate alarms when tripped. Other
sensors,
if enrolled in a delayed response group, start an entry
delay that lets you enter the premises and disarm the system. When
you enter your home, you will hear beeps during the entry delay
(see “
Status beeps

on pag
e 17
). If the system has not been
disarmed by the end of the entry delay, an alarm occurs.

The entry delay time is programmed by the installer.

No delay

If the system was armed with the no delay feature activated, there
will be no
entry delay and the alarm will occur immediately.

Exit delay

The exit delay is the amount of time the system gives you to exit the
home before the system is armed. During the delay, you can vacate
the premises through a delayed response door without causi
ng an
alarm.

Beeps will sound during the exit delay (see “
Status beeps

on
page 17
). The exit delay time is programmed by the installer.

Protest during arming

The system may protest an arm
ing level change if certain abnormal
conditions exist. If a sensor that is active in the requested arming
level is open, the system sounds protest beeps and automatically
bypasses the open sensor (depending on the system configuration).

Silent exit

The si
lent exit feature silences the status beeps that accompany the exit delay.
Press
ON next to
Silent

exit (
Figure

3

on page 8
)

before

pressing the arming
level icon

to silence status beeps. Th
e panel will still beep at the beginning and
end of the exit delay.

Note:

and speaks Doors and Windows On, No Entry Delay.

Note:
To avoid causing an alarm, you must disarm the system with a wireless
keyfob

before entering your home.

Quick exit

Use the quick exit feature when you want to briefly leave the house while the
system is stilled armed (for instance to get the newspap
er). This feature must be
enabled by your installer.

This will start a 2 minute timer that will allow a designated exit door to be open
and

closed once without triggering an alarm.

Note:
The designated door may be opened and closed only once. If you close
the designated door behind you when you exit, you will need to disarm the
system upon re
-
entering. Leave the designated door open while usi
ng the quick
exit feature.

Exit delay extension

If enabled by your installer, the exit delay extension feature will recognize when
you arm the system, leave your house and then quickly re
-
enter (for example, if
you forget your car keys). If this happens, t
he system will restart your exit delay
to give you the full exit delay again.

Bypassing sensors

Bypassing a sensor allows you to open the sensor while the system is armed.
For example, if your doors and windows are armed and you want to open your
kitchen w
indow, but do not want to disarm the entire system, you can bypass the
kitchen window sensor and then open the kitchen window without causing an
alarm. Bypassed sensors are automatically unbypassed when the arming level is
changed to a level where the sens
or is not active.

Alarms

The system provides a series of

alarms that indicate an unusual occurrence.
When an alarm is active, the
red alarm pop

with a message
explaining what caused the alarm
:

.

If you would like to hear additional alarm i
nformation, press Listen.

2
.

To cancel the alarm, press the red alarm icon and enter a valid master or user
code.

After alarms are canceled, the system will be disarmed.

Fire alarm verification

If this option is off, the panel immediately
reports to the central station when a
smoke detector goes into alarm.

With this option on, if a single smoke detector goes into alarm, the panel will not
report for 60 seconds unless another smoke detector goes into alarm. If the first
smoke detector is cl
eared of
an
alarm within the first 60 seconds, no report will
be sent to the central station unless it or a second smoke detector goes into
alarm within the panel siren timeout period (5 minutes).

Ask your installer how this option is programmed.

Canceling

and preventing accidental alarms

One of the biggest concerns you might have regarding your security system is
causing an accidental alarm. Most accidental alarms occur when leaving the
residence after arming the system or before disarming the system upon
your
return.

There is a communicator delay (dialer delay) of 30 seconds programmed into the
panel. The panel will delay 30 seconds before dialing the central monitoring
station remote phone to send reports. You can have your installer program this
delay ti
me between 15 and 45 seconds. To cancel an accidental alarm before the
programmed dialer delay time expires, press the red alarm pop
-
up and enter
your access code. The panel will speak
Alarm C
ommunication C

and sound beeps.

If the panel announces “
Alarm Cancelled”, the alarm report
was sent to the central monitoring station. (optional)
The central monitoring
station should be contacted to report the false alarm.

Note
: The
re

is no dialer delay for fire alarms.

Guidelines for preventing accidental ala
rms

Use the following guidelines to prevent accidental alarms:



Close doors and windows before you leave your house.



Gather your belongings, so you can exit immediately after arming the system.



Always enter and exit within the programmed delay times.



Make sure you leave through a door that has a delay time set for it.



Disarm your system immediately upon returning home.



Be aware of the devices in your system and learn how each one operates.



If you have pets, ask your installer if you need pet le
nses in your motion
detectors.



Check the location of your smoke detectors. Smoke detectors near
bathrooms and kitchens can be tripped by steam and smoke formed by
cooking.



Make a note of the display, system beeps, and indicator lights that indicate
the

current system status.

Chimes

Use the chime feature to signal when a protected door is opened while the
system is disarmed. The panel chimes twice when a chime sensor is tripped, if
the chime mode is enabled. This feature allows you to be notified when fa
mily
members are going in and out of your home. The chime and special chime
features are turned on or off in the System menu. See “
Chime

on page 23

and

Special chime

on page 23
.

Note:
If there are no chime sensors in your system, the chime option will not
appear in the System menu.

Voice chime

Your installer may have programmed the system to speak the sensor name or
make a c
ustom chime sound when a chime sensor is tripped. The chime sound,
if programmed, will be played in place of the standard chime beeps.

Special chime

The special chime feature allows you to install motion sensors in a patio or at the
front door, and be noti
fied when someone is approaching those areas. These
motion sensors are not used for intrusion protection. The panel will chime three
times, if the special chime mode is enabled.

Note:
If there are no special chime sensors in your system, the special chime
option will not appear in the System menu.

programming submenus.

Access codes

There are three types of access codes:

Master code.

The master code is your most powerful code and can be used for
all user operations including programming. The initial value of the master code is
123, 1234, 12345, or 123456, depending on the installer
-
programmed access
code length.

User codes 1 to 8.

Ther
e are eight user codes, which can be used for many
user operations, but not programming or bypassing sensors. Initially, all user
codes are blank. A user code can be deleted by pressing Delete while the code
is being changed.

Duress code.

The duress code,
when used in place of another user code,
generates a silent duress alarm that is reported to the central monitoring station.
Initially, the duress code is blank. The duress code can be deleted by pressing
Delete while the code is being changed.

To add/edit

access codes:

or chime beeps, entry and exit delay beeps, or
emergency

alarm beeps) is
controlled by the Beep Volume in the Status a
nd Settings screen
.

The speaker
emits the panel’s voice and sounds beeps when a key is pressed.
The siren
volume is also programmable.

The siren and built

Reference information

This section provides information on system limitations, emergency pla
nning and
smoke and heat detector locations. It also provides a place to list your sensor
and module locations and other programming values.

Alarm system limitations

Not even the most advanced alarm system can guarantee protection against
burglary, fire, o
r environmental problems. All alarm systems are subject to
possible compromise or failure
-
to
-
warn for a variety of reasons.



If sirens are not placed within hearing range of persons sleeping in remote
parts of the premises, or if they are placed behind do
ors or other obstacles.



If intruders gain access through unprotected points of entry or areas where
sensors have been bypassed.



If intruders have the technical means of bypassing, jamming, or disconnecting
all or part of the system.



If power to senso
rs is inadequate or disconnected.



If freeze or any environmental sensors are not located in areas where the
appropriate condition can be detected.



If smoke does not reach a smoke sensor. For example, smoke sensors
cannot detect smoke in chimneys, walls
, roofs, or areas blocked by a closed
door. Sensors may not detect smoke in other levels of the building. Sensors
may not warn in time when fires are caused by smoking in bed, explosions,
improper storage of flammables, overloaded electrical circuits, or o
ther
hazardous conditions.



If telephone lines are out of service.

Inadequate maintenance is the most common cause of alarm failure. Therefore,
test your system at least once per week to be sure sensors, sirens, and phone
communication are all working cor
rectly.

Although having an alarm system may make you eligible for reduced insurance
premiums, the system is no substitute for insurance.

WARNING:
Security system devices cannot compensate you for the loss of life
or property.

Emergency planning

Since an em
ergency is always unexpected, you should develop plans to help
prepare for a variety of emergencies. Periodically discuss and rehearse
emergency plans to include the following:



Understand how to use your security system.



Know the normal state of doors
and windows: open, closed, or locked.



Escape fast! (Do not stop to pack)
.



Use a different escape route if closed doors feel hot to the touch.



Crawl and hold your breath as much as possible to help reduce smoke
inhalation during your escape.



Meet at

a designated outdoor location.



Emphasize that no one should return to the premises if there is a fire.



Notify the fire department from a neighbor’s phone.



Emphasize that no one should enter the premises if they hear sirens in the
house.



If you arr
ive at the premises and hear sirens, do no enter. Call for emergency
assistance with your cell phone, or from a neighbor’s phone.
