Alarm Grid Video Recap: January 14th - 17thPosted By Michael Goris
It's time for another video recap from Alarm Grid! Our video team only managed to put up a few new videos last week, but we think they will be really helpful. We always appreciate our viewers who take the time to subscribe to our channel and support our videos. Let's check out the new ones!
Jorge explains how many wireless zones are available on a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 System. All versions of the IQ Panel 2 support up to 128 wireless zones. The original IQ Panel 2 can only support 319.5 MHz wireless sensors. The newer IQ Panel 2 Plus System can support PowerG Sensors, plus one of three (3) legacy sensor frequencies. These legacy sensor frequencies include 319.5 MHz, 345 MHz, and 433 MHz. Make sure you purchase the correct version of the IQ Panel 2 Plus based on the legacy sensors you want to support.
Jorge mentions that you can technically use up to 128 Qolsys Key Fob devices on a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 System. Each Qolsys IQ Fob-S uses one (1) single system zone. And since the IQ Panel 2 supports up to 128 zones, you can theoretically use a maximum of 128 IQ Fob-S devices on a system. Remember that since the Qolsys IQ Fob-S operates at 319.5 MHz, it will only work with the 319.5 MHz version of the IQ Panel 2 Plus and the original Qolsys IQ Panel 2 System.
Jorge shows you how to view the live video feed for a compatible Alarm.com Security Camera directly from a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 System. You must make sure that the Alarm.com Camera you are using is compatible with this feature. Most of the newer Alarm.com Cameras with Video Analytics support the feature. Additionally, the IQ Panel 2 System will need to be running a high enough firmware version. If the system needs a firmware update, you can always check out Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus Firmware Update Page for more information.
