Will Interlogix/GE Sensors Work on an Interlogix Simon XT?

Yes, Interlogix/GE Sensors will work on an Interlogix Simon XT. The Interlogix Sensors communicate at a wireless frequency of 319.5 MHz. This is conveniently the same wireless frequency accepted by Interlogix Alarm Systems. This makes Interlogix Sensors compatible with Interlogix Panels.

The Interlogix Simon XT is a self-contained wireless alarm system. This type of system usually comes with an integrated wireless receiver that is used for communicating with wireless sensors. Each wireless receiver is designed to recognize signals at a specific frequency. For the Simon XT, its wireless receiver recognizes signals at a frequency of 319.5 MHz. Therefore, any sensor that sends out 319.5 MHz signals can interface with the Simon XT System.

As one might guess, Interlogix Sensors utilize the 319.5 MHz frequency. This makes Interlogix Sensors compatible with the Interlogix Simon XT Alarm System. Interlogix Sensors were previously sold under the GE brand name. For all intents and purposes, GE Sensors are the exact same products as the Interlogix Sensors. This means that any wireless sensor that is sold or traded under the GE name should also work with the Simon XT. Additionally, Qolsys Systems also use the 319.5 MHz frequency. Any Qolsys Sensor should interface with the Simon XT. We recommend checking out the Qolsys IQ Panel Sensor Compatibility List, as all of the listed sensors should also interface with the Simon XT System.

However, there are many popular sensors that will not interface with the Simon XT. For example, Honeywell 5800 Series Sensors and 2GIG Sensors communicate at a wireless frequency of 345 MHz. This frequency is not compatible with the Simon XT Alarm System. Unless the 345 MHz signal is converted to 319.5 MHz, these sensors will not work with the Simon XT. There are certain third-party devices that are capable of making this type of signal conversion.
