Can I Disable the Internal Siren on an Interlogix Simon XT?

Yes, you can disable the internal siren on an Interlogix Simon XT. This option is found within System Programming. You will need to know the Master Code for the system in order to access System Programming. The option for configuring the internal siren is called "Panel Piezo Alarm".

Please note that the "Panel Piezo Alarm" option is not the same as the "Panel Piezo Beeps" option. The "Beeps" option is for configuring the non-alarm sounds on the system. This includes any status indication sounds. To disable the siren, you must turn off the option for "Panel Piezo Alarm".

Complete the following steps to turn off the piezo alarm and disable the internal siren on an Interlogix Simon XT:

1. Access siren options. Starting from the main screen of the Simon XT System, repeatedly press the down arrow until you reach an option called "System Programming". Once this option is displayed, press the "OK" button. Then enter the system Master Code (the default is 1234), and press the "OK" button. Once you are in System Programming, repeatedly press the down arrow until you reach "Siren Options". Then press the "OK" button to enter the siren options menu.

2. Turn off the siren. Press the down arrow until you reach an option called "Panel Piezo Alarm". Then press the "OK" button. The "On" or "Off" selection should begin flashing, indicating that it can be toggled. Use the up or down arrow to set the option to "Off". Once "Off" is displayed. Press the "OK" button to confirm the selection. The "Off" option should remain solid, indicating that it has been set.

3. Exit programming. Repeatedly press the "Status" button until you are returned to the main screen of the panel. This will ensure that any setting changes that were made within System Programming will be saved.
