Introduction
The Simon XTi-5 uses wireless technology to warn your family about intrusion,
carbon monoxide and fire. The system communicates with a central monitoring
station and sends voice messages to an offsite phone.
The security system uses sensors that communicate alarms to the control panel
using radio waves. The system is supervised, meaning that the panel checks the
status of each sensor to detect problems. If the panel detects trouble, it will notify
you with displayed and spoken messages, beeps, and indicator lights. A Simon
XTi-5 installation may include any of the devices listed in Table 1 below.

Exit/entry delay
Your Simon XTi-5 provides a delay after entering or exiting your home before the
system is armed or disarmed. Table 6 below provides details for the entry and
exit delay features.
Table 6: Entry and exit delay details
Function
Description
Entry delay
Some active sensors cause immediate alarms when tripped. Other
sensors, if enrolled in a delayed response group, start an entry
delay that lets you enter the premises and disarm the system. When
you enter your home, you will hear beeps during the entry delay
(see “Status beeps” on page 17). If the system has not been
disarmed by the end of the entry delay, an alarm occurs.
The entry delay time is programmed by the installer.
No delay
If the system was armed with the no delay feature activated, there
will be no entry delay and the alarm will occur immediately.
Exit delay
The exit delay is the amount of time the system gives you to exit the
home before the system is armed. During the delay, you can vacate
the premises through a delayed response door without causing an
alarm. Beeps will sound during the exit delay (see “Status beeps” on
page 17). The exit delay time is programmed by the installer.
Protest during arming
The system may protest an arming level change if certain abnormal
conditions exist. If a sensor that is active in the requested arming
level is open, the system sounds protest beeps and automatically
bypasses the open sensor (depending on the system configuration).
Silent exit
The silent exit feature silences the status beeps that accompany the exit delay.
Press ON next to Silent exit (Figure 3 on page 8) before pressing the arming
level icon to silence status beeps. The panel will still beep at the beginning and
end of the exit delay.
Note: Enabling silent exit doubles the exit delay time.
No entry delay
Use the no entry delay feature when you are staying at home, or when you are
away from home and will carry a wireless keyfob to disarm the system before
opening a protected door. Check with your installer to find out how this option is
programmed.
1. Close all door and windows.
2. Press
.
3. Press the OFF next to Entry Delay (see Figure 3 on page 8).
10
Simon XTi-5 User Manual
4. Press your desired arming level. The arming countdown begins.
The screen displays
(clock with a red strike through) with your arming level
and speaks Doors and Windows On, No Entry Delay.
Note: To avoid causing an alarm, you must disarm the system with a wireless
keyfob before entering your home.
Quick exit
Use the quick exit feature when you want to briefly leave the house while the
system is stilled armed (for instance to get the newspaper). This feature must be
enabled by your installer.
To enable Quick Exit:
1. Press PRESS TO DISARM.
2. Press
on the touch screen.
This will start a 2 minute timer that will allow a designated exit door to be open
and closed once without triggering an alarm.
Note: The designated door may be opened and closed only once. If you close
the designated door behind you when you exit, you will need to disarm the
system upon re-entering. Leave the designated door open while using the quick
exit feature.
Exit delay extension
If enabled by your installer, the exit delay extension feature will recognize when
you arm the system, leave your house and then quickly re-enter (for example, if
you forget your car keys). If this happens, the system will restart your exit delay
to give you the full exit delay again.
Bypassing sensors
Bypassing a sensor allows you to open the sensor while the system is armed.
For example, if your doors and windows are armed and you want to open your
kitchen window, but do not want to disarm the entire system, you can bypass the
kitchen window sensor and then open the kitchen window without causing an
alarm. Bypassed sensors are automatically unbypassed when the arming level is
changed to a level where the sensor is not active.
To bypass, or unbypass, a sensor:
1. Press
.
2. Press SELECT
.
3. Enter your master code.
Simon XTi-5 User Manual
11
4. Next to the sensor name, select
to bypass the selected sensor, or
to not bypass the selected sensor.
Alarms
The system provides a series of alarms that indicate an unusual occurrence.
When an alarm is active, the red alarm pop-up display shows with a message
explaining what caused the alarm:
To listen to and cancel an alarm:
1. If you would like to hear additional alarm information, press Listen.
2. To cancel the alarm, press the red alarm icon and enter a valid master or user
code.
After alarms are canceled, the system will be disarmed.
Fire alarm verification
If this option is off, the panel immediately reports to the central station when a
smoke detector goes into alarm.
With this option on, if a single smoke detector goes into alarm, the panel will not
report for 60 seconds unless another smoke detector goes into alarm. If the first
smoke detector is cleared of an alarm within the first 60 seconds, no report will
be sent to the central station unless it or a second smoke detector goes into
alarm within the panel siren timeout period (5 minutes).
Ask your installer how this option is programmed.
Canceling and preventing accidental alarms
One of the biggest concerns you might have regarding your security system is
causing an accidental alarm. Most accidental alarms occur when leaving the
residence after arming the system or before disarming the system upon your
return.
There is a communicator delay (dialer delay) of 30 seconds programmed into the
panel. The panel will delay 30 seconds before dialing the central monitoring
station remote phone to send reports. You can have your installer program this
delay time between 15 and 45 seconds. To cancel an accidental alarm before the
programmed dialer delay time expires, press the red alarm pop-up and enter
your access code. The panel will speak Alarm Communication Cancelled
12
Simon XTi-5 User Manual
and sound beeps. If the panel announces “Alarm Cancelled”, the alarm report
was sent to the central monitoring station. (optional) The central monitoring
station should be contacted to report the false alarm.
Note: There is no dialer delay for fire alarms.
Guidelines for preventing accidental alarms
Use the following guidelines to prevent accidental alarms:
•
Close doors and windows before you leave your house.
•
Gather your belongings, so you can exit immediately after arming the system.
•
Always enter and exit within the programmed delay times.
•
Make sure you leave through a door that has a delay time set for it.
•
Disarm your system immediately upon returning home.
•
Be aware of the devices in your system and learn how each one operates.
•
If you have pets, ask your installer if you need pet lenses in your motion
detectors.
•
Check the location of your smoke detectors. Smoke detectors near
bathrooms and kitchens can be tripped by steam and smoke formed by
cooking.
•
Make a note of the display, system beeps, and indicator lights that indicate
the current system status.
Chimes
Use the chime feature to signal when a protected door is opened while the
system is disarmed. The panel chimes twice when a chime sensor is tripped, if
the chime mode is enabled. This feature allows you to be notified when family
members are going in and out of your home. The chime and special chime
features are turned on or off in the System menu. See “Chime” on page 23 and
“Special chime” on page 23.
Note: If there are no chime sensors in your system, the chime option will not
appear in the System menu.
Voice chime
Your installer may have programmed the system to speak the sensor name or
make a custom chime sound when a chime sensor is tripped. The chime sound,
if programmed, will be played in place of the standard chime beeps.
Simon XTi-5 User Manual
13
Special chime
The special chime feature allows you to install motion sensors in a patio or at the
front door, and be notified when someone is approaching those areas. These
motion sensors are not used for intrusion protection. The panel will chime three
times, if the special chime mode is enabled.
Note: If there are no special chime sensors in your system, the special chime
option will not appear in the System menu.

Condition
Description
AC power failure
This condition occurs if your security system has been
accidentally unplugged or if there has been an AC power outage.
The
icon will appear in the top left corner of the screen
display, and trouble beeps start after 5 minutes. If AC power is not
restored within a programmed period of time (5 to 254 minutes, if
programmed by the installer), the system will call the central
monitoring station. The backup battery, if fully charged, will last for
18 to 24 hours (depending on the load applied to the panel) with
no AC power.
In a UL Installation, a new, fully charged battery will last 24 hours
with the panel in normal standby condition and still sound an
alarm.
System battery failure
This condition occurs if the emergency backup battery has failed.
Trouble beeps will start and the
icon will appear in the top left
corner of the main screen. If your AC power is not working, your
security system will shut down once the battery has failed. If the
condition does not clear after AC power has been restored and 24
hours have passed, call your security system dealer.

Description
Restoration of power
This condition occurs after a complete loss of power (AC and
battery). When power is restored, the panel will return to the
arming state with the same zones bypassed it had prior to losing
power.
Sensor failure
This condition occurs if a sensor is not communicating with the
panel. Trouble beeps will start. You may need to call your security
system dealer if the problem continues.
Sensor low battery
This condition occurs if a system sensor has a low battery. The

This condition occurs if your security system could not
communicate successfully to the central monitoring station. Your
system will try to report to the central monitoring station eight
times before it tells you there is a fail-to-communicate problem.
Trouble beeps will start and the yellow triangle appears over the
settings icon. You may need to call your security system dealer if
the problem continues.
Sensor open
This condition occurs if a door or window is open or a system
sensor has been disturbed and not reset properly. For example, a
door/window sensor magnet may have been removed from the
sensor. Your system will indicate this condition to you by
displaying a red SENSOR OPEN icon (see Table 4 on page 4)
and show the
icon in the bottom right of the main screen.
Correct the problem by resetting the sensor. If this condition
continues, call your security system dealer.
Sensor tampered
This condition occurs when a sensor is physically tampered with,
for example, that the cover is taken off one of the sensors. If the
system is armed, an alarm will occur and the red alarm pop-up
appears. If the system is disarmed, the Sensor icons change to
red (see Table 4 on page 4),
icon appears, and Trouble
beeps will start. Correct the problem by resetting the sensor. If
this condition continues, call your security system dealer.
RF jam detected
The panel receiver may be experiencing some interference. The
system will call to notify the central monitoring station about this
problem.
Clearing status
Some types of status conditions, such as alarm history, must be
cleared manually. To clear system status, press CLEAR next to

User codes 1 through 8 These eight codes are supplemental user codes. You can use these
codes for panel operations such as disarming, but not programming.
These codes can be any 3, 4, 5, or 6-digits, depending on the code
length.
Duress code
Use the duress code to generate a silent duress alarm while disarming.
Note: Any combination of invalid codes in excess of 40 key presses (such as
fourteen invalid three-digit codes) will cause a system access alarm. The alarm
locks all touchpads, except key fobs, for 90 seconds.

Reference information
This section provides information on system limitations, emergency planning and
smoke and heat detector locations. It also provides a place to list your sensor
and module locations and other programming values.
Alarm system limitations
Not even the most advanced alarm system can guarantee protection against
burglary, fire, or environmental problems. All alarm systems are subject to
possible compromise or failure-to-warn for a variety of reasons.
•
If sirens are not placed within hearing range of persons sleeping in remote
parts of the premises, or if they are placed behind doors or other obstacles.
•
If intruders gain access through unprotected points of entry or areas where
sensors have been bypassed.
•
If intruders have the technical means of bypassing, jamming, or disconnecting
all or part of the system.
•
If power to sensors is inadequate or disconnected.
•
If freeze or any environmental sensors are not located in areas where the
appropriate condition can be detected.
•
If smoke does not reach a smoke sensor. For example, smoke sensors
cannot detect smoke in chimneys, walls, roofs, or areas blocked by a closed
door. Sensors may not detect smoke in other levels of the building. Sensors
may not warn in time when fires are caused by smoking in bed, explosions,
improper storage of flammables, overloaded electrical circuits, or other
hazardous conditions.
•
If telephone lines are out of service.
Inadequate maintenance is the most common cause of alarm failure. Therefore,
test your system at least once per week to be sure sensors, sirens, and phone
communication are all working correctly.
Although having an alarm system may make you eligible for reduced insurance
premiums, the system is no substitute for insurance.
WARNING: Security system devices cannot compensate you for the loss of life
or property.

emergency plans to include the following:
•
Understand how to use your security system.
•
Know the normal state of doors and windows: open, closed, or locked.
•
Escape fast! (Do not stop to pack).
•
Use a different escape route if closed doors feel hot to the touch.
•
Crawl and hold your breath as much as possible to help reduce smoke
inhalation during your escape.
•
Meet at a designated outdoor location.
•
Emphasize that no one should return to the premises if there is a fire.
•
Notify the fire department from a neighbor’s phone.
•
Emphasize that no one should enter the premises if they hear sirens in the
house.
•
If you arrive at the premises and hear sirens, do no enter. Call for emergency
assistance with your cell phone, or from a neighbor’s phone.
