hi diy-ers this is michael from alarm grid and today i'm going to be showing you how to delete a wireless zone from an interlogix or ge simon xt security system we have our interlogix simon xt here might also be known as the ge simon xt there have been many variations of this wireless system released through the years and now interlogix is out of business but there's you still find them pretty commonly but they all use the same process for deleting a zone um if you aren't aware uh all versions of the interlogix simon xt or ge simon xt use three 19.5 megahertz wireless sensors they enroll with the system pretty easily you can find these sensors uh manufactured by qolsys interlogix and ge made their own various third-party ones today i'll actually be demonstrating a versa ge sensor it's also 319 and they can all enroll nicely with the system but one limitation of the simon series systems at least the simon xt is that it can only do 40 wireless zones it only has 40 zone slots available so if you need run out of zones and you need to add a new one then there's a good chance you'll be deleting a zone from the system or if there's a sensor you're not using same case and you'll actually see when i get into programming that uh the cell module also takes up a zone slot so um we don't have anything enrolled with the system right now i'll show you the enrollment process during the video but um first i want to get us into programming so i can show you how you delete the zone so we're at the main screen of the system and we're going to scroll down until we reach system programming and then we're going to press ok and then it's going to ask us for our code and we're going to enter our installer code and ours is at the default looks like i didn't do it fast enough we'll have to go back to programming and we'll click ok and we'll enter the default installer code 4 3 2 1 and then we press ok to confirm and now we're in programming so now i'm going to scroll down to sensors right there we're going to press ok and i'm going to show you the delete sensor option first even though we don't have anything enrolled with the system just to show you that you can only delete sensors that are enrolled with the system in this case we don't have any sensors enrolled with the system we just have our cell module it says gsm module looks like we need to upgrade to lte um but we're going to back out because we're going to unroll the sensor first and so we're gonna we're back in the sensor menu and we're gonna go up to learn sensor and now it's looking for a sensor and these sensors learn in by um a tamper cover so we have our sensor here and um that's just a warning of the system but don't worry about that um and we're just going to open up the sensor real quick we go got that part done and then we just need to get under there and versus ges can be a little tricky to open but there we go we got it got it open that's releasing the tamper cover and you see it's assigned it to sensor number one group 10. for our demonstration purposes that's fine we'll just click ok and we'll just keep the name front door and we're good so we've added the sensor to the system so now i can show you how you would go about deleting it so i'm going to press status again to get back into the sensor menu we're going to go down to delete sensor and you see that now we have our sensor that we just enrolled with the system displayed we go down we can see the other the sole module in this case which we don't want to delete that but we do have the sensor here and we just press ok and there we get the message deleted so just like that we have deleted a sensor from the simon xt security system and just to back out we can just keep pressing status until we're back at the main screen and that's how you delete a sensor from a ge or an interlogix simon xt security system we freed up the zone so that we way we can use it with a new zone if you found this video helpful make sure to give it a thumbs up below to like the video if you have any questions about the simon xt or any other security system or about alarm monitoring in general send an email to support alarmgrid.com and remember to subscribe to our channel for updates on future videos we hope you enjoyed the video thank you
