hi-di-ho Iris Joe from alarm grid here and today we're going to talk about which sensors are compatible with a Simon system now today we have a Simon XT and XT I set up if you have an XT i-5 it's going to work just the same as these two panels and everything that we discuss will apply to the XT i-5 now the Simon systems out of the box they're only compatible with sensors that work on the three 19.5 megahertz frequency these sensors are sensors that are compatible with the system are obviously sensors that are made by inter logics or Simon but additionally if you have any Qualis sensors lying around they also work on the three 19.5 megahertz frequency and they will be able to be programmed in your Simon system one cool thing about the Koala sensors is that if you have any s-line sensors which are the new encrypted sensors they will also be compatible with your Simon panel with this said though the encryption feature that you will get if you use those sensors on a closest system that encryption will not work with the Simon system but those sensors will be able to be used on your Simon panel now let's say you're moving on to the location and you're bringing your Simon system and there's another system that setup let's say a Honeywell system and the Honeywell system has a whole bunch of wireless sensors all over the location that you would like to use with your Simon system you won't be able to directly program those into your Simon system though because the Honeywell wireless sensors they work on the 345 megahertz frequency and as I said before the only sensors that are going to work natively with the Simon system our sensors that work in the three 19.5 megahertz frequency but there are a couple things you can do to get the Honeywell sensors or other type of sensors to communicate with your Simon system and you'll be able to program them in after adding a certain device well you're going to have to add in that instance is a wireless translator now we have a few different options of these on our website a basic one that you can use is called the Qualis 3:45 translator what this is is the standalone device after you install it what it's going to do it's going to listen for frequency on the 345 megahertz range and when ever hears that it's going to translate it and spit it out on the three 19.5 megahertz frequency which will allow the system to pick that up it's super convenient and in the instance that I described before if you're going into location and you have a bunch of Honeywell wireless sensors around the the location you install your Simon system you install this translator and then all those Honeywell sensors that do work on the 345 megahertz frequency they'll be able to be picked up by the translator and you'll actually be able to program them right into your Simon panel there's another translator that's a little more versatile than the closest 345 this is called the re 524 X and it pretty much does the same thing what it's going to do it's going to listen for a wireless frequency and it's gonna output wireless frequency the cool thing about the 524 X though is that it has two knobs in it and you can actually set the input manufacturer and the output manufacturer so let's say you want to do Honeywell again what you'll have to do is you'll have to open the case set the input to Honeywell and then set the output to enter logics what this is going to do is the exact same thing as the Qualis 3:45 translator it's going to listen for any signals that are on the 345 megahertz frequency it's going to input them translate them and it's going to spit them out on the 319 point 5 megahertz frequency which will allow you to program them right into your Simon system there are a few other options other options out there if you are interested you have any questions about wireless translators the Simon systems or how to get different sensors to work on your Simon or analogic system feel free to contact us you can head over to our website wwlp.com or send us an email to support at alarm grid comm thanks for watching and have a great day
