Alarm Grid Video Recap: February 19th - 21stPosted By Michael Goris
It was a relatively quiet week for our video team last week, as we only put up three (3) new videos. There was one (1) from Jorge, one (1) from Jarrett, and one from myself, for a nice even split. We hope that you find these new videos helpful. Let's check out the newest Alarm Grid videos!
Jorge explains how you can use the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus with Alarm.com. In order to do this, you will need to have the system set up with an alarm monitoring plan that includes access to the service. Some examples of compatible monitoring plans include the Gold and Platinum Plans from Alarm Grid (Self or Full). By accessing Alarm.com, you can remotely arm and disarm your system, check its current status, control automation devices, and so much more.
I explain how you can get your Honeywell VISTA System set up with wireless internet. All of the IP communicators for Honeywell VISTA Panels use hardwired ethernet connections. But you can get the panel connected to WIFI by using a compatible ethernet to WIFI bridge, such as an Alarm.com ADC-W110. Compatible IP and dual-path communicators for VISTA Systems include the Honeywell 7847i, the Honeywell LTE-IA, and the Honeywell LTE-IV. The communicator will need to be activated for monitoring service to connect with the AlarmNet360 Servers.
Everyone's favorite strapping young lad Jarrett talks about the siren built into the Honeywell Lyric Security System. The Lyric siren is rated at 85 dB, and it activates during intrusion and life-safety alarms. The system supports the Honeywell SiXSIREN if you want to add another 85 dB sounder in a second location. If you are looking for a louder siren, the Qolsys IQ Siren at 105 dB is a great option. We have an FAQ on using the IQ Siren with the Lyric System if you decide to use that device. You can also add a hardwired siren using a FortrezZ MIMOlite Relay.
