Featuring a control panel with a built-in 3.5-inch color LCD touch screen, the Interlogix Simon XTi system offers all the advantages of the original Simon XT system with the added convenience of a two-way touch screen, rather than a hard-button keypad. The control panel mounts on your wall and provides control over the system, as well as at-a-glance status checks of your home and property.
Touch Screen Features:
- Simple, no button interface with menu-based programming
- Pop-up alarm notifications and emergency button
- Actionable status icons for quick checks on property
- Displays time, battery status, AC power status, and connected RF status
If an alarm occurs, a notification will pop up at the bottom of the Home screen, indicating which sensor was activated at what time. Actionable status icons also allow you to quickly check on your home. These icons display the status of monitored doors, windows, motion detection areas, and changes in other connected sensors. When a door or window is opened, for example, the appropriate icon will show an open image. These icons can be pressed with your finger to bring up a new screen with further status details.
Additional icons provide convenient security control. You can arm/disarm the entire system, or choose to arm only specific sensors. When you're leaving your home with all the doors and windows closed, select "Arm All" to arm all sensors. If you want to leave a door or window open while you're gone, choose "Motion Sensors Only". And if you're staying in your home, choose "Doors + Windows Only", so that your entryways will be monitored, but you can move freely about the house without tripping motion detectors.
The Home screen also provides an emergency button that you can press to contact authorities immediately. Depending on your system, the touch screen can display different emergency options. In addition to security system information, the Home screen displays the current time, battery status, AC power status, and connected RF status.
The control panel supports up to 40 wireless zones, two of which can be used as hard-wired zones, if needed (normally-closed loop only). The controller works with both Crystal and SAW wireless sensors, as well as select two-way RF devices. Generally, sensors and the control panel have a wireless communication range of 500 feet in open air, but a 100-foot range is recommended for indoor applications.
One user can have complete control with a Master Access Code, and up to eight other users can have individual access codes (3-6 digits). The panel also provides optional "no activity" and "no usage" reports, as well as a 100-event buffer with time/date stamps. Events can be reported to a central monitoring station for immediate emergency response to an alarm. The control panel's built-in microphone and speaker allow two-way communication with monitoring personnel.
This kit also comes with two main accessories that help you increase reliability for your security system, and control home automation devices:
- Transformer: Line carrier transformer that enables communication with X10 devices, allowing you to integrate X10 automation into your security system.
- RJ31X Jack: Allows the control panel to seize your telephone line. When connected to a central monitoring station, the control panel requires telephone service. The jack makes sure service is not disrupted during maintenance or by an intruder.
In addition to these included accessories, other optional add-on devices are available to expand functionality of the Simon XTi control panel. Accessories sold separately include a variety of sensors, a GSM modem (either Z-Wave or non Z-Wave) which enables cellular/Z-Wave support, a wall-mount talking keypad, and a wall-mount talking touchscreen. You can add these devices later on, or choose a different kit that includes them.
