Simon XTi Quick Operation Guide
This is the Quick Operation Guide
for the Simon XTi system
(models 600-1054-95R-12 & 600-1054-95R-12-CN). The Simon
XTi provides a graphical user interface for prog
ramming and
system operation. A piezo siren is provided for al
arm and status
annunciation. A speaker and microphone is
provided for 2-way
voice communication with the central station.
Operation
Use this document to quickly
begin operating your Simon XTi
security system. Refer to the Simon XTi User Manual for full
operating details and programmi
ng options. To download the
Simon XTi User Manual see “
Contact information
” on page 9
.
Note:

Th
e default master code is 1-2-3-4 when the security
system is shipped from the factory. You should change your code
after you
r s
ystem is installed (see “
Programming
” on page 5
).
To operate the security system:

Use the home screen icons
to arm/disarm the system when
you enter or exit your home and to determine which sensors
are active and the system status.

Use the emergency screen to communicate with the central
monitoring station to report police, fire, or emergency alarms.

From the home screen, press the Status & Settings
icon
to program certain user features. Refer to the Simon XTi User
Manual for more information.
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 trouble b
eeps will sound unless
silenced. You can silence trouble beeps by:


Armi
ng or disarming the system.

or



Pressing the STATUS & SETTINGS icon and pressing
LISTEN next to Panel Status.
This will disable the sounde
r for 4 hours but the trouble
indication will remain until the battery is recharged.
Contact your installer to replace your backup battery.
This system is intended to be ch

oke 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 cleared 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

1. Press PRESS TO ARM.
2. Press DOORS & WINDOWS ONLY
, MOTION SENSORS
ONLY, or ARM ALL.
3. If a code is required, enter
your code when the keypad
screen appears.
The panel starts an exit delay and
sounds exit beep
s until the
exit delay expires (see
Table 4
on page 5
).
Unvacated premises

Unvacated premises is a featur
e that determines whether the
system automatically arms down to
level 2 (doors and windows)
if you arm the system to level 4 (doors, windows, and motion
sensors) without opening or closing a perimeter door (on), or
remains at the armed level chosen (off). This feature does not
work from a key fob. Autobypass must be on for this feature to
work. Check with your installer to
see how these options are
programmed for your system.
Swinger Shutdown
This setting determines if a sensor or zone will go into alarm only
once during an arming period (an
active arming leve
l) and will not
be active again until the alarm is
canceled (Swinger Shutdown is
enabled) or the sensor or zone will always be active and will go
into alarm multiple times during
an arming peri
od (an active
armi
ng level) without canceling the alarm (Swinger Shutdown is
disabled).
Note
:
Swinger Shutdown does not
affect Smoke, Fire, Carbon
Monoxide and Environmental sensors.
Ask your installer how this option is programmed and have them
explain how it will affect your system operation.
Exit/entry delay
Your Simon XTi provides a delay after entering or exiting your
home before the system
is armed or disarmed.
Exit delay extension

If enabled by your installer, the exit delay extension feature will
recognize when you arm the syst
em, leave your house and then
quickly reenter (for example, if yo
u forget your car keys). If this
happens, the system will restart your exit delay to
give you the full
exit delay again.
Ask your installer how this option is programmed.
Alarms
The system provides annunciation to
indicate an alarm condition.
When an alarm is active, the ho
me screen will display the alarm
status (see
Table 1
on page 1
).
To can
cel the alarm


If you wo

the path of a person walking from
the kitchen to the living room.
When the person is detected wa
lking through the kitchen, the
motion sensor in the kitchen is tr
ipped, sounding a local alarm.
If motion is detected by the living room motion sensor within
two minutes, an alarm report will be sent to the central station.

Sensor testing notes

Conduct sensor test in all possible environmental conditions
(For example: interior doors open and closed, HVAC system
on and off, wireless music system turned on and off).

Conduct sensor test whenever changes are made to the
installation environment that may impact RF performance
(For example: mirrors insta
lled, metal backed wall paper,
addition of other RF equipment).

If a sensor doesn’t meet minimum packet requirements,
contact your installer.
Comm test

The comm t
est is used to
check proper communication.
Note:

If Comm Test is not finished, it will continue to run even if
you exit program mode.
To perform a comm test:
1. Enter the Status & Settings menu.
2. Scroll until System Tests is listed, Press Enter.
3. Enter your master code and press OK.
4. Press Comm Test.
The panel displays if the comm test was successful or not.
Central station communication

After performing sensor tests, check that the system is reporting
alarms successfully to the central station.
To test communication wi
th the central station:
1. Call the central station and tell the operator that you will be
testing the system.
2. Arm the system.
3. Test an emergency panic icon
and trip at least one sensor of
each type (fire, intrusion, etc.
) to verify that the appropriate
alarms are working correctly. There could be a 30 second
delay on intrusion devices.
4. When you finish testing the system, call the central station to
verify that the alarms were received.
Note:

If your system is not connected to a central monitoring
station you won’t be able to perform the communication test.
Emergency planning
Since an emergency is always
unexpected, you should develop
plans to help prepare for a vari
ety of emergencies. Periodically
discuss and rehearse emergency
plans to include the following:

Understand how to use
your security system.

Know the normal state of do
ors 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 re
turn to the premises if there
is a fire.

Notify the fire department from a neighbor’s phone.

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


If you arrive at the premises an
d hear sirens, do no enter. Call
for emergency assistance with
your cell phone, or from a
neighbor’s phone. Smoke Detector Placement


Your floor plan

Use the following guidelines wh
en drawing your floor plan:

Sh
ow all building levels.

Show exits from each room (two per room are
recommended).

Show the location of all
security system components.

Show the location of any fire extinguishers.
Cleaning the touch screen
If necessary, use a soft cloth to clear smudges on the touch
screen; do not use glass cleaner on the touch screen.
Disposal
Dispose of all equipment is accordance with local requirements.
Contact your installer
for more information.
