Built-In Verizon LTE Wireless Internet
The Qolsys IQ Panel 2+ works on the Verizon LTE network (SIM card included) to transmit and receive security information wirelessly. This allows the smart home control panel to be controlled remotely with your smartphone or tablet using the Alarm.com mobile app (Android, iOS, Windows, and Blackberry). You'll be able to monitor and control your smart home in real-time from anywhere to arm or disarm your security system, lock or unlock your smart doors, watch live video from your cameras, turn off lights, and much more!
Next Generation LTE: Reliable and future proof, LTE provides better coverage, faster speeds, and quick customer support with remote connectivity, unlike other security companies that still use 3G or 2G, which are dramatically slower.
5MP Panel Camera: A built-in camera captures disarm photos, as well as the time, date, and who disarmed the IQ Panel 2+. The photos are then sent directly to your smartphone so you can see who entered your home.
Built-In Glass Break: Built-in dual microphones work with the Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor and software to detect the sound of breaking glass, providing a built-in glass break detector.
Bluetooth Disarming: Bluetooth touchless disarming allows you to pair up to five smartphones or tablets for secure, authenticated disarming. No more accidentally setting off your alarm. Just leave your smartphone in your pocket or purse to automatically set or disarm your security as you leave or arrive home.
Dual Path Connectivity: Built-in Wi-Fi and LTE radios work together to create dual-path connectivity to the cloud to ensure that you're always connected. This improves latency, reliability, speed, and provides software updates.
Android 5+: Unlike old systems that do not provide software updates, the IQ Panel 2+ uses the Android 5+ operating system that's intuitive, upgradeable, and future proof. It offers language support, a video player, custom text to speech, and an appified experience.
Weather App: Fast access to your 4-day forecast. Just look at the top left corner of the header of IQ Panel 2+. You'll be able to toggle between Fahrenheit and Celsius, and if enabled, you can even receive a severe weather siren warning.
Photo Frame: Built-in Micro SD card slot will allow you to load your own photos as a screensaver. Not only will you have a top notch security and home automation system, but also a digital photo frame so you can show off your recent family photos.
Cutting-Edge PowerG Encrypted Wireless Technology
The PowerG wireless protocol is an upgrade over the original Qolsys wireless protocol, S-Line. PowerG wireless devices (available through the third-party DSC brand) send/receive their signals over 4x the range of traditional S-Line / Interlogix wireless devices, increasing coverage area and reliability. PowerG also features military grade 2-way encryption, automatic signal adjustment to improve battery life, and interference circumvention to prevent signals from being blocked by other wireless protocols in your home.
- 4x range vs traditional wireless
- Industry-best encryption
- Two-way communication
IQ Smart home control panels with PowerG are certified by Underwriters Laboratories and earned the UL Listed Mark, meeting UL's nationally recognized standards for safety.
About Legacy S-Line Encryption
In addition to PowerG compatibility, the IQ Panel 2 Plus includes a special "daughter card" that provides backwards compatibility with the 319.5 MHz legacy wireless frequency (Qolsys S-Line / Interlogix), allowing you to keep using your existing sensors without an expensive translator.
Qolsys wireless smart home control panels that feature S-Line ("Secure Line") technology (319.5 MHz) also offer advanced encryption to safeguard your wireless signals against hacking. The technology employs an advanced encryption scheme between the wireless sensor/device and the control panel to ensure that wireless event transmissions are always unique, preventing and eliminating common replay attacks (when an unscrupulous person uses an easy-to-purchase software-defined radio or "listening device" to replay events that were previously sent by wireless devices paired with a security system.) At time of pairing, S-Line technology passes a unique key which enables the encryption algorithm for unique event transmissions, thereby preventing such replay attacks.
About Z-Wave Compatibility
Designed to become the foundation for a comprehensive system, the IQ Panel 2+ works with any Z-Wave (U.S.) device from any certified Z-Wave manufacturer. Use the smart home control panel to manage Z-Wave and Qolsys / Interlogix security sensors, lights, locks, thermostats, appliances and more. If you're upgrading from an older edition of the IQ Panel and you still have older Qolsys sensors, don't worry. The IQ Panel 2+ is compatible with all Qolsys / Interlogix 319.5 MHz sensors.
Z-Wave Plus Certification
Z-Wave Plus is an upgraded certification program to help you identify products that take advantage of the "Next Gen" Z-Wave hardware platform, also known as 500 Series or Gen5 Z-Wave. Z-Wave Plus certified solutions feature a selected set of extended features and capabilities that enhance your experience with faster and easier installation and setup. Z-Wave Plus advancements also provide longer battery life, faster operation, better wireless range and improved noise immunity.
The IQ Panel 2+ is monitored by Alarm.com and can be controlled remotely with your smartphone or tablet using the Alarm.com mobile app (Android, iOS, Windows, and Blackberry). You'll be able to monitor and control your smart home in real-time and from anywhere to arm or disarm your security system, lock or unlock your smart doors, watch live video from your cameras, turn off lights, and much more!
The smart home control panel comes with an optional snap-on stand for tabletop use, or the Panel can optionally be mounted to a wall using the integrated mounting holes. The mounting holes accommodate mounting in a 1-gang, 2-gang, or 3-gang box. The Panel has optional locking screws for both table mounting and wall mounting to help ensure the Panel remains in place.
The smart home control panel plugs into a standard power outlet using the included power supply. The required Internet connection is provided by the pre-installed Verizon LTE SIM Card. An Alarm.com account is also required, but not included.
