DO IT YOURSELF
INSTALLATION MANUAL WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
The IQ Panel 2 keeps you connected to an
entire ecosystem of smart devices giving
you control over your entire home.
Exciting features like touchless disarming
using Bluetooth and a built in glass break
detector are enabled through powerful
software that improves over time through
regular software updates.
The IQ Motion detects infrared body heat
useful for both security and home
automation. Create rules like “when
someone enters the room, turn on light” or
“Trigger siren when body detected”.
The IQ Mini door/window sensor is a
powerfully small device that can be placed
on anything that opens or closes. Create
automation rules like “turn on light when
door is opened” or “Adjust thermostat if
window left open”.
The IQ Panel also includes a snap on table
stand and power supply with cable. SETTING UP YOUR PANEL
Let’s start by connecting your power.
Plug in the power connector
Route the wire behind the
retainer clip
Insert the wire into the strain-
relief
Now let’s put on your cover and attach the table stand.
Place the top of the cover onto
the panel’s back plate
Push the cover down until it
snaps in place
Insert the table stand into the
mounting holes and push upward
until it snaps into place
Plug in your panel, power it on
Plug in the power supply
provided with your panel
Push and hold the standby
button on the side of the panel
for 3 seconds
Once the panel powers up, the
home screen will appear. INSTALLING YOUR DOOR SENSOR
DOORS & WINDOWS INSTALLING THE IQ MINI SENSOR
Apply the included
adhesive.
Remove the
protective film.
Line up the sensor
with the magnet.
Secure the sensor and
magnet to the surface.
Remove the two
battery tabs.
Your IQ Mini is an ultra compact encrypted sensor that can be placed on
anything that opens or closes. INSTALLING ON A WINDOW
Typical installation of magnet/sensor with the
magnet on the window and the sensor on the
window frame.
When installing the sensor on a window, place the “magnet” on the part of the
window that moves, to reduce possibility of damage to the sensor as you open and
close the window. If your window does not allow this kind of installation then you can
reverse this configuration. INSTALLING ON A DOOR
Standard install
magnet/sensor
orientation.
Alternate install
magnet/sensor
orientation.
(used when door trim does
not allow standard install)
When installing the sensor on a door, place the “magnet” on the door and the sensor on
the door frame. This helps to reduce the possibility of damage to the sensor as you open
and close the door. If the trim around your door does not allow this kind of installation
then you can reverse this configuration. INSTALLING YOUR MOTION SENSOR
MOTION DETECTION INSTALLING THE IQ MOTION
Open the device to
remove the back plate.
Secure the backplate
to surface.*
Re-install motion
device to the backplate.
Remove the battery tab.
Your IQ Motion is an encrypted infrared sensor with a range of 25 feet. The
motion detector is most effective when a person moves across its field of
view, rather than towards the sensor. We recommend that all motions are
installed at a height of 6.5 feet. Refer to the following pages for different
installation options. WALL MOUNT: FLAT

Have pets?
By mounting the motion
sensor flat against the wall you get more
more open air coverage within the room
but less floor coverage, reducing the risk
of false alarms.
Reduce False Alarms:
When possible,
avoid installing your motion sensor
toward windows, as the heat or
movement from outside may create false
alarms. CORNER MOUNT: FLAT
80°
25ft
Finished

Install

Corner mounting
is the most common
placement because it allows the sensor
to provide wall to wall protection.
Have pets?
By mounting the motion
sensor flat against the wall you get more
more open air coverage within the room
but less floor coverage, reducing the risk
of false alarms.
Reduce False Alarms:
When possible, avoid installing your motion sensor toward
windows, as the heat or movement from outside may create false alarms. WALL MOUNT: ANGLED DOWNWARD

Angle Mount:
pointing the motion
downward gives you less open air
coverage but more floor coverage. This is
a great installation in homes without
pets.
