How Do I Control Lights w/ an Interlogix Simon XTi or XTi-5?
You can control lights with an Interlogix Simon XTi or XTi-5 from the lights control menu from within system settings. Any programmed Z-Wave light can be individually toggled between on and off. It is also possible to set every programmed Z-Wave light to on or off all at the same time.
A Simon XTi or XTI-5 System can only operate Z-Wave lights that have been programmed. In order to program Z-Wave lights with the system, a Z-Wave controller is needed. For the Simon XTi and XTi-5, the only compatible Z-Wave controller is an Alarm.com cellular communicator. These cellular communicators each contain an integrated Z-Wave controller.
Any programmed Z-Wave lights can be controlled directly from the panel itself. However, there are also other ways to control Z-Wave lights. They can be controlled from Alarm.com, using a keyfob or from an external touchscreen keypad. Alarm.com is particularly useful, as the service allows users to establish rules and scenes for their Z-Wave devices to have them activate automatically.
Operating Z-Wave lights directly from the Simon XTi or XTi-5 System can be very convenient for end users. Complete the following steps to control Z-Wave lights from a Simon XTi or XTi-5 System:
1. Access light control. Start from the main screen of the panel. Press the gear icon in the lower-right corner of the screen. Then scroll down to the "Lights" option, and press the "Control" button next to it. This will take you into the light control menu.
2. Toggle the lights. Each individual Z-Wave light will be listed and have its own on and off button for toggling that particular light. You can also turn all the lights on by pressing "All On". You can turn all the lights off by pressing "All Off". Adjust the lights to your liking.
3. Exit the menu. Once you have finished adjusting the lights, press the "Close" button in the upper-right corner of the screen.
