    Hi Alex,

    Good news! All but one of these pieces of equipment will be compatible with a new Simon XT system. As the sensors are all GE/Interlogix brand, they will be compatible with the Simon XT. We have sold a number of them in the past, and even though they are slightly older models, they will learn in to the new system.

    That touchpad, however, is a piece that will not work with the newer Simon Family panels. GE has released an updated model specifically for the Simon XT that you will need to purchase. Another option available to you is purchasing an additional touchscreen pad for the system. You can bundle it with the XT for a discounted price:  https://checkout.livewatch.com/products/ge-talking-touch-screen-keypad-for-simon-xt-xti

    You may have to manually add the sensors to the Simon XT. Here is an article with video included on how to do that:  http://help.livewatch.com/entries/20387028-How-to-Add-a-New-Sensor-to-Your-Simon-XT-Video-Included

    I would also recommend replacing the batteries in the equipment if they have not been replaced within three years before using them again.

    If you have any other questions about sensor compatibility, please let me know!

    Best regards,
