The Interlogix 600-1048-XT-ZX-VZ is a Verizon (CDMA network) Cellular Communicator for GE Simon XT & XTi alarm systems. The XT and XTi models are self-contained security systems where the control panel is built into the keypad. This Verizon radio sits inside the keypad on the board and allows the panel to transmit/receive signals to Alarm.com. This is a third party service that requires a monthly subscription with a dealer. You can choose to enroll in central station monitoring and/or self monitoring using the Alarm.com app. The app offers remote interactive access and customizable alerts via email, text message and push notifications on your mobile device. Generally, the Alarm.com dealer will bundle the Verizon cellular data charges into your monthly rate for monitoring service. Be sure to clarify this before activation.
Cellular communicators are always a preferred method when it comes to reliable alarm monitoring. Phone lines and internet modules rely on physical wiring that can be cut or loose contact over time. Phone lines will not support the newer interactive technologies offered by services like Alarm.com due to the limited infrastructure. Internet modules can be convenient but they rely too heavily on a functioning router and modem which tend to drop out occasionally.
The installation guide walks you through how to power down and physically install the cell card. There are two plastic tabs that hold the card into place. After installing the module, you will want to setup an activation appointment with your dealer. During the activation you will need to perform a "GSM phone test."
Simon XT: Select “System Tests” in the main menu and Press “OK." Then enter the installer code (default 4321) and select "Comm Test." Simon XTi: Go into tools (gear icon). Press "Programming" and enter your installer code (default 4321). Select "System Tests" followed by "Comm Test."
**Please note: any cellular communicator automatically is programmed to Zone 40 on your panel. If you already have a sensor configured to that zone remember to reprogram it.**
