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.

Simple Control

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.

Perfect Accessories

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.

Great System for DIYReview by tfeni52355

Installed this in my home with the help of a friend who had installed security systems before. We had it up and running in 2 hours from start to finish. I monitor 4 doors in my home, my shed door and a motion detector in the garage. I plan on adding water monitors for my condensate pans on the A/C and a moisture sensor where the condensate drains into an existing drain line.

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)

So i'm going to try and address issues that other people are having as far as programing and using the system, I've had this system for 3 months now and I think it's wonderful. So here it goes: Someone said that the panel does not beep with the piezo horn after speaking, and it does not always speak: Voice input and Piezo beeps must be programmed and on using the installer code. Another person said, "cannot believe that GE left out the basic "stay" and "away" options for arming." This is false. GE most definitely did include these they are just worded different for ease of use and clarity for others, To arm in a 'Stay' mode you would press "Doors+Windows" to arm in 'Away' press "Doors+Windows" and then immediately "Motions" and the panel will announce "Doors and Windows armed. Motions armed." and then beep signifying the command has been executed. It is true you are limited on hardwire inputs, however this unit is being sold as a WIRELESS SECURITY SYSTEM so you should be glad that they give you any. As far as that, Im very satisfied.

This is a good system with a few drawbacks:
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)

Ok, I'll be honest. I have not completed the installation of this alarm system. However, I figure this is the perfect time to write this review. I'm a smart guy. I'm also good at following instructions. I decided to not be a typical guy and to actually read the installation instructions front to back before attempting to install this system. I assume that anybody here who has posted reviews stating that this alarm system is easy to install and program either works for an alarm company and installs them every day or they were paid by somebody to write good reviews. The installation manual is horrible. I've spent the last three hours reading and re-reading the manual and googling almost every imagineable website for insite on how to program this system and can't program it to save my life. It absolutely, positively does not program the way the manual says it should. I can't change any of the codes. Having a security system with a "1234" code or "4321" probably isn't the best way to outsmart a thief, but the system continually tells me "invalid" with every single code I try to input to change the factory settings. I'll try to not be completely negative. I actually had no problem at all programming the sensors to the key pad. Along with mounting the keypad to the wall, and plugging in the back-up battery, I had no problems at all...that was incredibly easy! I thought it would be a good idea to program all the settings and change the codes before I permanently mounted everything. I'm glad I did. I haven't even bothered mounting any of the sensors yet, since I can't even program the damn keypad! I will be contacting tech support on Monday and will re-write my review once I finally get this damn system set up properly. Unfortunately, it's Saturday and I'm stuck. (Posted on 7/29/11)

Purchased the GE Simon XT nearly two years ago. A great system. I purchased 2 wireless recessed door transmitters for the front and back door for a cleaner look. They work great. I found the Ademco Piezo Dynamic Siren sku 747PD to be the loudest indoor siren available. My system is using 17 window/door sensors, 2 recessed door sensors, and 2 motion sensors. They all work great.
Highly recommend this alarm system for reliability and ease of use. (Posted on 4/12/11)

Great system. Could use another signal out. Used one to indicate if alarm is on or off in the garage (love it, LED signals if alarm is armed), but this will use up the exterior siren out put. This system was installed all by myself and I never installed one. Another hit is the touchpad, easy install here too. Just the plug in for the touchpad is an outlet plug in. I ran an extension cord in the wall and used it inside the wall to eliminate wire dangling outside. Love the design. The only thing missing, why not make this online capable and make an app where you can use your iPhone to arm and disarm. (Posted on 11/28/10)

Installed the alarm myself in about 2 hours and that includes mounting the sensors and looking over the directions. Very very easy to install and setup, i have never installed one before and i thought it was very easy. Just make sure you read thru the instructions 1st and its a breeze.
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.

Easy to install in retrospective. However, it look me about 10 hours to install (first time). There are a couple of things to be aware of:

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)

This is an outstanding product and easy to install. Got the entire home security system done in less than a day. If you have an older GE Simon alarm system installed with older wireless sensors - the unit will function and recognize almost 100% of older GE accessories (my older GE Remote touch pad could not be recognized).
