Arming your system allows the panel to generate an alarm when a door or window is opened or when a motion is detected when a person enters a specific area. Glass breaks will trigger an intrusion also if broken glass is detected while armed. Currently there are 2 ways to arm your system:
Click on the unlock icon and you will have 2 choices
Remember: All emergency devices will still trigger an emergency whether the security system is armed or not. These are 24 hour devices such as: Smoke Detectors, Carbon Monoxides, Flood Detectors, Freeze sensors, Medical Pendants etc.
Please watch the following video to learn more about how to arm and disarm your system using the Simon XTi. You may also refer to page 7 of the Simon Xti Manual for more information.
Click on the settings wheel at the bottom right of the screen then press the down arrow until you get to programming and click ENTER. A new screen will pop up and now you can insert your 4 digit Master Code and then press OK. You are now in the programming area and click on the box that says USER CODES. The first code is the master code then the next 8 slots are for users 1-8.
To exit system programming click on save once done with any changes then click close on the top right of the screen until you are back at the main screen.
Bypassing a sensor will allow you to open the sensor while the system is armed. For example if your system is currently armed in stay mode and you are inside the house you can go into the keypad and bypass one of the sensors allowing you to open and close that door or window without causing an alarm.
While the system is armed in stay mode: click on the settings wheel bottom right and then click on Direct Bypass. Then click on which sensor you want to bypass. It will show bypassed then close to go back to main screen. You can now open that door or window without causing an alarm.
As the homeowner you may change the settings on your keypad at anytime. Simply click on the settings wheel at the bottom right of the screen and go through each setting you would like to edit.
PANEL STATUS, CHIME (ON OR OFF), VOICE & BEEP VOLUMES, DEFAULT SCREEN, HELP SECTION, SYSTEM TESTS.
All the above settings may be changed or adjusted to your desire, this will not affect the security system operation for arming and disarming, only how the keypad looks, sounds and reacts to normal daily operations.
All the above features are accessible through your settings on the keypad. Click on the settings wheel found on the bottom right corner of the screen and you can scroll down each page to access each one.
Your security system makes it easy for you to know that there are trouble conditions by displaying them on the keypad through the yellow triangle or by alerting you on your phone as well as sending a signal to the station where you will receive a phone call.
Currently there are a few ways you can periodically test your security system.
Device Testing: This can be done locally without the monitoring station. Testing the operation of all doors, windows and motion detectors.
If all is good tell them to take system off test and back to active mode.
In the event of an alarm there will be a red box that appears on the keypad and the siren will go off as well as signals being sent to ADT or your monitoring station. If you are certain that it is a false alarm simply click on the red box where it says “Click to here to disarm” and enter your user code. This will disarm the system and cancel communication with ADT.
