How to turn off Chime on a hidden Simon XT main control panel

I want to hide the XT control panel(v1.4) and use the touchscreen(in group 00) as the source of chimes/notification beeps. Currently, when a door is opened, both the panel and the touchscreen will announce it. Can I turn the chime off of the control panel completely so only the touchscreen will announce it? I tried different settings, but couldn't get it to work. Here is my current setting on the panel:
chime - on
Piezo Beeps - Off
Panel Voice - Off
Panel Piezo Alarms -Off
The volume level for the panel speaker is between 1 and 8, so I couldn't turn it completely off.

Please help.
Thanks a lot!

  • Hello Bob. 

    To do this simply set the Speaker Volume and the Beep Volume to "0" in the Siren Options Menu.

     

    This allows your Touchpad to announce the name of the door/window opened but no sound from main unit.

  • hi JoeT, thanks for your help. Under the Siren Options, I can't find the option to set speaker volume to "0". The range is only between 1 and 8.

  • It may be a version issue. I am running Simon XT version 1.4 with GSM version 4144d (you can tell your version by holding the "2" key for ~10 seconds.)

  • I had to press up arrow 3 times to see the version: Revision 1.4

    I don't have GSM module, so pressing 2 didn't return me anything.

    Is there anything else that I can try or I am stuck with this different 1.4 version that doesn't have the option to change chime volume to "0"?

    thx!

  • I too would be interested in the answer to this question.  I, like Bob have a brand new version 1.4 but I do not have the option to turn the volume down to zero.  Are there any other options?

  • @Rob - The only way that we are able to set this option to "0" is through the GSM system. This has" root" or "super admin" rights on the panle as opposed to using the installer code. I tried to set the options manually as you and Bob have done and had the same result (it does not work locally).

    If I activate a GSM in that unit, I am able to send the remote command to nullify those values. 

    It is not possible to silence the chimes/beeps without disconnecting the siren or subscribing to Brinks Home Security cellular.
