How do I reset my Smart Home Devices to work with my new Radio?

After you’ve swapped the radio inside of your Simon XT Control Panel, you will need to re-add your Z-Wave Smart Home devices, such as a Smart Lock or Smart Light Bulb.

 

All Z wave devices have an internal memory of what panel/radio they have been paired with, follow these steps to clear that memory so they can be re-added with your new radio. These steps will work for any type of compatible Z wave device.*

Note: These steps can be done using the new radio.  They do not need to be done using the original radio.

  • Ensure the Panel and Z-Wave Device is within 6' from each other.
  • Press and hold the asterisk (*) button for ~10 seconds until the panel says Z-Wave Programming Mode.
  • Press and hold 2 on the Simon XT Panel to place the panel into add mode. The panel will say "Z-Wave Delete Mode".
  • Perform the programming command according to the instructions of your device.  See the list at the bottom of this page for the instructions on any Frontpoint Devices
  • If successful, the panel will beep and say "Device Deleted".

From here you will then pair the device with the new radio:

  • Press and hold the asterisk (*) button for ~10 seconds until the panel says Z-Wave Programming Mode.
  • Press and hold on the Simon XT Panel to place the panel into add mode. The panel will say "Z-Wave Add Mode Number of devices __".
  • Perform the programming command according to the instructions of your device.  See the list at the bottom of this page for the instructions on any Frontpoint Devices
  • If successful, the panel will beep and say "Device Added".
