Incompatibility between
PowerG
Wireless Digital Pet-Immune PIR
Motion Detector and Certain Versions
of Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus
Date:
April 18, 2019
Region:
North America
Product:
PowerG Wireless Digital Pet-Immune PIR Motion
Detector (PG9914)
Brand:
DSC
Background
Certain versions of the PowerG Wireless Digital Pet-Immune PIR Motion Detector (PG9914) are
not compatible with the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus with PowerG firmware Version 80.17 and they
should not be used together.

Scope PowerG Wireless Digital Pet-Immune PIR Motion Detectors built before August 23, 2018, are
affected by this issue, only when combined with the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus with PowerG
firmware Version 80.17.
Only the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus with PowerG firmware Version 80.17 is affected. Instructions for
how to identify whether your panel has PowerG firmware v80.17 are included below. IQ Panel 2
Plus with PowerG firmware v80.17 has been shipping since January, 2019.
Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus with PowerG firmware Version 4.06 is not affected and can be used with
the PG9914 without being affected by this incompatibility.
In some cases, the PG9914 with V3.0.5 or V3.0.7 firmware will not enroll on the Qolsys IQ Panel
2 Plus with PowerG firmware Version 80.17. In a limited number of cases, the PG9914 will enroll,
but even in such cases this device/panel combination should not be used together.
All versions of PG9914 are compatible with PowerSeries Neo, PowerSeries Pro, and iotega
panels and can continue to be used on those systems with no restrictions, since they are not
affected in any way by this issue.

Status
PG9914 detectors with firmware V4.0.0 have been in production since August 23, 2018.
Instructions for how to identify these detectors are included in the Affected Part Numbers section
below.
Any PG9914 detectors in your stock that have firmware older than v4.0.0 should be used only
with PowerSeries Neo, PowerSeries Pro, iotega, or Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus with v4.06 PowerG
firmware.
