Interlogix Simon XTi-5 Wireless Security System 311 Kit
The new Simon XTi-5 is a step up from Interlogix's already feature-packed Simon XTi systems. The Simon XTi-5 has an improved, bigger screen and a more sturdy housing. The Simon XTi-5, like its predecessors, is an all-in-one, self-contained unit. This means that the keypad is incorporated into the main control board. The Simon XTi-5 offers the same 40 zone capability. You'll be able to put one device per zone, but this is more than enough for the usual residential setup. If you have a couple of simple normally-closed loops then you can set the panel to use only 38 wireless zones and then you can wire in the two wired zones you'd want to use. Some people will already have a hardwired door contact(s), for instance, and want to not waste them.
You can use all existing sensors for the Simon XTi and the Simon XT with the new Simon XTi-5. It has the ability to use wireless door and window sensors, wireless glassbreaks, smoke detectors and motion detectors and wireless add-on keypads and keychain remotes. The pieces that you'll get in this kit give you a nice little start on building a great system. First you have three door/window sensors. These can be installed to any door or window by using the two-sided adhesive tape included with them. These will come with a magnet and a reed switch transmitter. When placed on a door or window the transmitter will send a signal to your Simon XTi-5 when the magnet is separated beyond the gap distance. The next piece you'll get with the kit is a pet immune motion sensor. When a motion detector is pet immune it refers to the fact that it will 'ignore' a pet if the pet is under the weight limit rating of the motion sensor. These are most commonly placed in rooms to cover a window or a group of windows and, in general, to sense any motion activity during unauthorized times of day. The next item you'll get in the Simon XTi-5 kit is the 600-1064-95R keychain remote.This will allow you to arm and disarm the system with the push of a button. You'll be able to disarm the system from outside the house so you can enter in without any hassle.
The Simon XTi-5 has a brilliant 5 inch color touchscreen which provides you with at the moment system status with easy to read icons and messages. You'll get notifications of open doors and windows, motion detection and a 'My Property' icon status symbol to notify you of all non door and window or motion statuses. At some point while owning your Simon XTi-5 you'll want to add more devices to expand the protection of your home.
You'll have very easy to understand and use menus for programming the system. The menus also come into play when you are testing the functionality of your Simon XTi-5 so that you can make sure that it is operating at its optimum performance level.
You can also, with the proper cellular communicators and
Alarm.com Residential Service, get remote control of your Simon XTi-5, your own notifications and many more capabilities.
