There may be a time where you need it increase the signal strength of your image sensor. The instructions below will help you maximize the signal strength to ensure connectivity:
To check your signal strength on your image sensor:
Press on the Gear Icon
Scroll to the last page
Press "Enter" next to "Programming"
Enter 4,3,2,1 then "OK"
Press "Interactive Services"
Press "Image Sensor"
The signal strength is displayed. We recommend that the device has more than 30% strength.
This signal strength reading represents an average of the last 5 signal readings reported to the daughterboard.
When verifying signaling for a mounting location, put the sensor in walk test mode (via the panel menu or by tampering the sensor) and perform a walk test to ensure that the readings at the panel are reflecting the current sensor location.
To increase this range:
If you are still not getting over 30% signal you will want to verify that the antenna inside the Simon XTi is placed as displayed below:
