The Simon XT and XTi Panel comes with a female voice that addresses you with status updates and alerts. While some people like this feature, it’s not for everyone.

Unfortunately, there are no other voice options that allow you to change the pitch or accent of the Simon XT’s voice. However, it is possible to change the volume of the voice or mute it completely.

Adjusting voice volume on Simon XTi

  1. On the main menu, tap on the gear icon to enter the settings menu.

  2. Tap on the down arrow to scroll to the second screen.

  3. The last line is for “Voice Volume.” Use the left and right arrows to decrease or increase the volume. Four white bars is the loudest, and zero white bars is muted.
