Is the Interlogix Simon XTi or XTi-5 Compatible w/ Alarm.com?
Yes, the Interlogix Simon XTi or XTi-5 is compatible with Alarm.com. However, these alarm systems can only work with Alarm.com if they are receiving active cellular connectivity. This requires both a cellular communicator and an alarm monitoring plan that includes cellular service.
Alarm.com is an interactive service platform that is used for operating an alarm system. The Alarm.com service can be accessed through any web browser or through the Alarm.com Mobile App. When a user logs-in to their Alarm.com account, they have the ability to arm and disarm their system, check the status of sensors and operate Z-Wave home automation devices. Basically, the Alarm.com service provides the user with a very convenient access point for their Simon XTi or XTi-5 System. Many users are particularly fond of the Alarm.com Mobile App, which allows users to control their alarm system from almost anywhere in the world.
But before an alarm system can sync with Alarm.com, it will need an active cellular connection. This requires both a cellular communication module and an alarm monitoring plan with cellular service. Without cellular connectivity, a Simon XTi or XTi-5 System will be restricted to POTS (plain old telephone service) connectivity. This type of communication is known for being both quite slow and unreliable. For a consistent and fast connection, upgrading to cellular communication is a top priority. Users who upgrade to cellular will be extremely pleased with the panel's fast communication speeds and excellent reliability.
In order for an alarm system to work with Alarm.com, it must have active cellular service. Once the user's alarm monitoring company has activated the panel's cellular communicator, they will then send the user an email with instructions to set up complete their Alarm.com account configuration. After creating their Alarm.com account, they can then use the service to control their XTi or XTi-5 System.
