Will I need to remove all my Z-wave devices (light switches/outlets/door locks) from my Simon XT?
Yes, but you can do so with the Qolsys Panel. You wouldn’t need to delete them from the Simon exactly, you need to clear the Simon’s network link which is saved in each individual Z-wave device.
Z-wave is a 2-way communication network, so devices can only pair with one parent controller at a time. The Remove/Clear device feature on a controller followed by activating that device’s learn process will delete the parent network link saved in the device.
Will I need to remove my sensors/cameras/SVR/flood sensors/sirens etc from my Simon XT?
Cameras and SVR do not connect to the panel directly and are not learned in through it. They simply communicate across wifi through your internet connection with ADC. You would need to delete them from your other ADC account under the Video Settings page though.
Sensors do not need to be deleted, they are one way communication, the panel just needs to be programmed to listen for them.
What siren are you referring to? Do you have a separate Z-wave siren?
Should I perform a reset on the Simon XT so it unlearns all this devices? or just terminate service and begin service with you loading them all back in? I don’t want the device/sensors being unable to learn into the system because they are in the old one.
This would have no bearing at all on whether the devices could be reused. See above.
As for my alarm.com account. Frontpoint will close the alarm.com account and I will have a new alarm.com login and account with you?
Correct, well insofar as it would be a new account with us. I couldn’t say exactly what another dealer’s process would be, some dealers may leave the account open for a while, that’s why I suggest deleting the cameras in your video page since they can only be assigned to one account at a time.
Should I delete the app? I already printed all my rules/schedules/automation so I can replicate it easily.
How about all my family members with their app and their geo settings. Should I delete the apps when I cancel service and load it again once I have the new account? I don’t want to have any complications from their app or geo settings trying to reach the old account.
This is a good question, and if you are just using the standard Alarm.com app I do not believe there would be a reason why you would need to since it would be the same app and the account access is tied to credentials, not your software.
That said, if they do not delete your old account right away, some notifications may continue for the old account, and since some setup options like Geoservices and Push Notifications generate permissions in ADC based on when they are turned on in the App settings, it wouldn’t hurt or take long to delete the app and re-install to start fresh, just to avoid any possible confusion. It is probably better to do it that way.
Anything else I should do once I cancel service with them before contacting you to register my panel and starting service?
As far as getting set up with us, no, all you would need to do is purchase service here. Once you submit your order survey which is generated after your purchase, your order would be processed during business hours by our customer service team and you would receive a Welcome email with initial credentials and instructions to get started.
