The HW1 I/O terminal is dual purpose and can be used for either
siren or hardwired contact connections. The HW2 in terminal is an
input only.
Simon XTi Installation Guide
Interior sirens
Wiring phone lines
From the factory, the HW1 I/O input (terminal 1) is set up for
interior siren operation (status and alarm sounds). The HW1&2 DC
out (terminal 2) provides the positive (+) voltage.
You can connect a phone line to the panel for systems monitored
by a central monitoring station or systems that notify users by a
voice event notification.
Note: The total current available from the HW1&2 DC out terminal
is 250 mA at up to 120ºF (49ºC). A 24-hour battery standby for UL
requirements will be met with a maximum load of 250 mA.
DSL (digital subscriber line) allows the use of multiple devices on a
single phone line simultaneously. For DSL environments, connect
the panel line-in jack to an available phone jack on the premises.
You might also need an inline filter to ensure panel reporting is
With Hardwired Siren Supervision turned on, sirens connected to
HW1 I/O are supervised and require a 4.7-kohm resistor in the
circuit. If this terminal is not used, turn Hardwired Siren
Supervision off.
Note: Avoid connecting the panel to a standard phone (voice) line,
as other devices on the line can prevent reports from going
Exterior sirens
For an exterior siren, change the HW1 setting in the System
Options programming menu. See wiring diagram.
Full line seizure
Hardwired contacts
Full line seizure allows the panel to take over (seize) the phone line,
even if another device on the line is in use. This method requires
that the panel be wired before all other phones, answering
machines, computers, or other devices on the phone line. You may
need to verify the line seizure for UL installations.
You can connect hardwired reed switches (normally closed loop
only) to HW1 I/O (if not being used for a hardwired siren) and/or
HW2 in (terminal 3).
Use the RJ31X (CA-38A) jack when wiring for full line seizure. You
can then quickly and easily disconnect the panel from the phone
line in case the panel disables the phone line due to a malfunction.
Connect only normally closed (NC) reed switches to HW1 I/O
and/or HW2 in. Other types of hardwired detectors should not be
To wire full line seizure with an RJ31X:
Note: Not investigated for and may not be used in a UL Listed
The total resistance of the wired loop must not exceed 3 ohms.
This allows you to use up to 200 ft. (61 m) of two-conductor, 22gauge stranded wire.
Run a four-conductor cable from the premises Telco block to
the RJ31X.
Connect the four-conductor cable wire to the RJ31X.
Disconnect the green and red premises phone jack wires
from the Telco block and splice them to the four-conductor
cable black and white (or yellow) wires. Use weatherproof
wire connectors for these splices.
Connect the four-conductor cable green and red wires to the
Telco block TIP (+) and red to RING (-) posts.
Connect the phone cord included with the panel to the RJ31X
and the panel LINE jack.
Connect hardwired reed switches to the panel using a 47-kohm
resistor (not a 4.7-kohm resistor) as shown in Figure 4 below. The
resistor must be connected at the last switch in the circuit.

If a single phone is all that exists on the premises, full line seizure
can be accomplished without an RJ31X.
Note: Do not install the resistor at the panel terminals. This does
not provide supervision of the wire.
Simon XTi Installation Guide
Disconnect the phone from the premises phone jack and plug
it into the panel PHONE jack. This jack is disconnected
automatically whenever the panel reports.
Connect the included phone cord to the panel LINE jack and
the premises phone jack.
If a customer adds phones or other phone devices to another
phone jack, full line seizure no longer exists. Inform them to
contact you if they want to add a phone or other device so that
you can rewire for full line seizure by adding an RJ31X.
Wiring the power transformer
Connect the power transformer to the two 9 VAC in terminals (4
and 5) on the panel. Do not plug in the transformer at this time.
When applying power to the panel, connect the battery first, and
then plug in the AC power transformer. This sequence prevents a
battery fault condition.
Applying AC power
Make sure the outlet is not controlled by a switch or that it is not
part of a ground fault circuit interrupt (GFCI).
Note: For Canadian installations, plug the transformer into the
wall outlet.
WARNING: Use extreme caution when securing the
transformer to a metal outlet cover. You could receive a
serious shock if a metal outlet cover drops down onto the
prongs of the plug.
Note: System can only be powered up using AC power, not battery
power. The red battery icon may appear when the system first
powers up and will disappear after some time.
Plug the transformer into the lower receptacle of the outlet so
that the hole in the transformer tab lines up with the outlet
cover screw hole.
Insert the cover plate screw through the transformer tab and
the outlet cover plate. Tighten the screw.
To remove and install the backup battery (6 VDC, 2.1 Ah):
Note: It is recommended that the backup battery be replaced
every 3-5 years.
Remove AC power from the panel.
Disconnect the existing battery from the battery connector.
Remove the existing battery by reaching under the battery
with a finger and pulling up.
Note: Upon initial installation, the battery may not be fully
charged for as long as 36 hours. A low battery icon will be
present and trouble beeps will sound until the battery is
sufficiently charged. After the initial charge, should the panel
lose AC Power and experience a low battery condition, the
icon will appear and trouble beeps will sound unless silenced.
You can silence trouble beeps by:
Note: Do not try to push the plastic latch back to remove the
Insert the new battery into the battery compartment and

Table 4: Simon XTi programming codes
You can use the dealer code to program all system functions,
including high-security options that are not accessible with the
installer code if it is different from the dealer code. Depending
on how the access code is set, the default dealer access code
is 654321, 54321, 4321 (factory default), or 321. This code can
be used for all programming.
Depending on how the access code is set, the default installer
code is 654321, 54321, 4321 (factory default), or 321. This code
is limited to changing all but the following: Dealer code, code
length, downloader code, phone lock, phone #1, phone #2,
phone 1 report mode, phone 2 report mode, HW1 function.
Note: If you are installing a sensor on a gun case, jewelry box, or a
similar case, and the sensor is active in level one, you must direct
bypass the sensor to avoid putting the panel into alarm when the
sensor and the magnet are separated.
Mounting Recommendations:
Where possible, install sensors within 100 feet (30 m) of the
receiver. While a transmitter and receiver combination may
have an open-air range of 500 feet (152 m) or more, the
environment at the installation site may have a significant
effect on operational range. Changing a sensor or receiver
location can improve wireless communication.
Avoid mounting sensors or receivers in areas where they will
be exposed to moisture or where the operating temperature
range will exceed the specified range (10 to 120 °F).
Avoid mounting the sensor or receiver in areas with a large
quantity of metal or electrical wiring. For example: within 1
meter of AC distribution panel (fuse box), HVAC duct work
Avoid mounting the sensor or receiver directly on metal.
The Simon XTi system should not be mounted within 3 meters
of any other RF equipment (RF music system transmitter,
wireless router/modem, etc.).
Access codes

beeps from the RF Sniffer indicate a faulty sensor. Replace the
If possible, locate sensors within 100 ft. (30 m) of the panel. While a
sensor may have a range of 500 ft. (152 m) or more out in the
open, the environment at the installation site can have a
significant effect on transmitter range. A change in sensor location
may help overcome adverse wireless conditions and can
potentially be accomplished by the following:
Reposition the sensor
Relocate the sensor
If necessary, replace the sensor
To reposition a sensor:
Rotate the sensor and test for improved sensor
communications at 90 and 180 degrees from original
If poor communication persists, relocate the sensor.
To relocate a sensor:
Conduct sensor test whenever changes are made to the
installation environment that may impact RF performance
(For example: mirrors installed, metal backed wall paper,
addition of other RF equipment).
Sensor testing should be done before and after permanent

Press Comm Test.
The panel displays if the comm test was successful or not.
Central station communication
After performing sensor tests, check that the system is reporting
alarms successfully to the central station.
Note: The communication with the central station test must be
done while NOT in programming mode.
To verify alarm reporting:
Call the central station and tell the operator that you will be
testing the system.
Test the sensor a few inches from the original position.
Arm the system.
Increase the distance from the original position and retest
until an acceptable location is found.
Mount the sensor in the new location.
Test an emergency panic icon and trip at least one sensor of
each type (fire, intrusion, etc.) to verify that the appropriate
alarms are working correctly. There is a 30 second delay.
If no location is acceptable, replace the sensor.
When you finish testing the system, call the central station to
verify that the alarms were received.
To replace a sensor:
Test a known good sensor at the same location.
Cleaning the touch screen
If the transmission beeps remain below the minimum level,
avoid mounting a sensor at that location.
If necessary, use a soft cloth to clear smudges on the touch
screen. Do not use glass cleaner on the touch screen.
If the known-good sensor functions, contact UTC Fire &
Security for repair or replacement of the problem sensor.
Sensor Testing Notes:
Dispose of all equipment is accordance with local requirements.
Conduct sensor test in all possible environmental conditions
(For example: interior doors open and closed, HVAC system
on and off, wireless music system turned on and off).
