Protection For You and Your Family
The GE Interlogix Simon XT Wireless Security System is built for dependency, protection and with your family's safety in mind. Great for homes, apartments and condominiums, this alarm kit has everything you need to keep a closer eye on your property and it is wireless, so installation is fast and simple.
Simplicity and control are echoed throughout this wireless alarm system. The control panel features a large backlit LCD display, nonirritating touchpad controls for arming/disarming and a status speaker that provides voice messages for feedback. For emergency situations, the key pad also displays emergency fast action keys and a microphone for 2-way communication with an alarm monitoring company.
With the Simon's Latch Key Feature, you can monitor your family more than ever before: The panel can be programmed to notify you if the system has not been disarmed by a scheduled time. So if a child breaks curfew, you'll no longer be in the dark about it. System programming can be done from the panel using the built-in touchpad, or off-site using Enterprise Downloader Software (revision 3.4 or later). Note: The built-in receiver works with both Crystal and SAW Learnmode sensors.
Accessories included in this system give you just the right amount of protection. Included are 3 door and window sensors (contacts), a key fob for arming/disarming and emergencies without ever touching the keypad and a pet-immune motion detector for pets up to 40lbs. in weight. No more false alarms from Fido. With these accessories, you get 40 wireless zones of burglary and fire protection from the Simon XT.
Just In Case
Along with the control panel and accessories, a rechargeable 24 hour backup battery is included in case of power failures.
This reliable DIY alarm system also supports off-premise telephone control to arm/disarm the system, check system status, activate no-entry delay, or activate the latchkey feature option. And the Simon XT can send messages to a central monitoring station using SIA or Contact ID (CID) formats. The panel also reports alarms to another land-line phone location or cell phone using Voice Event Notification.
It's clear why the GE Interlogix Simon XT Wireless Security System is one of the most popular in the industry. It's user-friendly, protects you from all angles and always has your family's safety at the top of its to-do list.

(1) Simon XT Security Control System
- Great System for DIYReview by tfeni52355
I used frame mounted wireless door sensors on my main house doors since I didn't like the look of the sensors provided with this kit. They are: Interlogix DesignLine Crystal Wireless Recessed Door Contact (TX-1510-01-1)
I will reuse the door sensors provided with the kit and allow them to monitor the water sensors i described above. You can change their functionality and allow them to monitor a contact closure from any device.
We extended the functionality of the system by adding the Simon Wireless Talking Bi-Directional Keypad to our bedroom. It allows us to arm/disarm the system from the bedroom.
We also interfaced the system to my X-10 lighting control modules. Even though it says this system does not work with X-10, it does. We use the all lights off command from the keypad in our bedroom and it works flawlessly. Also when there is an alarm the X-10 controlled lights flash on and off until the system is disarmed.
I am adding an external siren from Parts Express: Alarm Siren 5" 115 dB 12 VDC Part # 260-060 to complete the install. (Posted on 10/8/14)

- This is a good system with a few drawbacks: 1) Pretty limited ...Review by name withheld
1) Pretty limited on hard wire inputs, and siren outputs. Siren output cannot drive a large exterior siren like a GS-580S.
2) Panel is apparently vulnerable to being smashed.
3) Talking keypad does not beep at all (e.g. chime or entry delay beep) and does not talk for everything the panel does.
4) Manual is excellent in some areas, poor in others. Particularly, the section dealing with sensor groups seems to assume knowledge an installer, but not a do-it-yourselfer, would have; nor are there sufficient examples. It doesn't explain how the panel injects X10 signals into the house wiring. It does not explain the problem with burglars smashing the panel, and strategies to avoid this.
5) The manual does not match what the panel has for pre-loaded sensor names, forcing you to scroll through interminable numbers of names to find one that fits when "learning" the sensor.
6) The panel does not allow you to use the same security code for dealer, installer and master code.
7) The telephone test cannot be stopped prematurely, and seems inconclusive.
8) The Index is poor, and what's worse, a glossary is not there at all (e.g., what does "siren supervision" mean?).
9) The manual on the CD that came with the system was limited; the manual online at this vendor's site seemed out of date (at least the pictures were for an older panel).
Other than these complaints, it seems to work reasonably well. (Posted on 11/24/11)

As for this package deal I wish i would have done it a little differnt. Although it all works great, the door sensors are kind of big and are very noticable on the doors. If i had it to do over again i would buy just the Control station and then buy the SMALLER sensors seperatly. Plus i have no need for the keyfob so that was kind of a waste for me. It would come out to be about the same price and your doors would look much better. Other than the large sensors this thing is great and easy to install, even for a first time installer like myself.

1. Manual is NOT written well. Groups were confusing to me.
2. Door sensors (NX-650) was extremely hard to prop open to trip it or for battery replacement. I recommend using a strong 3M double sided tape rather than nailing the sensor
Overall very satisfied, except manuals are poorly written and be ready to call tech support. (Posted on 10/6/10)
