The Simon XT Wireless Talking Bi-Directional Keypad from GE is now available from SafeMart.com for the low price of $99.00. This product has been a while in coming and now that its here, I thought we should take a look at it.
The Simon XT Talking Keypad is great because it allows you to easily arm and disarm your system without having to use the actual Simon XT panel. Why is this great? It means that you can place your XT panel somewhere safe, like a bedroom or closet, and place the Talking Keypad in an easy to reach location, like the front hallway. Ok, why is that so great? Well, that is so great because if an intruder broke into your home, he couldn’t smash your control panel or rip the phone cord out, disabling the system. Your alarm system will continue to work, sounding an alarm or notifying your monitoring company (if you have monitoring) because the great likelihood is that the intruder won’t find the panel in time.
The fact that it is a bi-directional talking keypad means that it will tell you if you’ve correctly armed or disarmed your system, if there’s an event, or even if there’s a low battery. Additionally, it has panic buttons for you to hit in the event of an emergency.
GE’s Simon XT Wireless Talking Bi-Directional Keypad allows you to add a whole new layer of security and convenience to an already reliable and convenient system. And for only $99 the benefits vastly outweigh the cost.
