Can I Arm My Qolsys IQ Panel 4 From My Phone?

You can arm a Qolsys IQ Panel 4 from your smartphone by signing up for monitoring through a dealer. The dealer will provide login credentials for the app and/or the website. The app is available for iPhone or Android devices. Besides arming, you can check alarm panel status and manage users.



The Qolsys IQ Panel 4 is a 7" capacitive glass touchscreen All-In-One panel with a built-in camera for optional disarm images. The panel comes in black or white, and in different variations of each color. The various versions allow the user to install a new feature-rich wireless panel without having to replace the previous system's wired or wireless sensors. Supported legacy RF sensors include the 319.5 Mhz (Qolsys/GE/Interlogix) sensors. These sensors can come in the original non-encrypted variety or can use Qolsys S-Line encryption. The IQ Panel 4 can support either version. There is also a version to support the 345 Mhz (Honeywell/2gig) sensors, and a version for the 433 Mhz (DSC) sensors. All three (3) versions will also support 915 MHz PowerG frequency sensors. There is also an IQ Panel 4 version that supports PowerG only. This version is available in white only.

The Qolsys IQ Panel 4 also comes with either a Verizon or AT&T cellular module built-in. It can also be connected to WIFI with a built-in internal dual-band WIFI card. These communication options can be used together for dual-path communication, or cellular can be used solo to connect to the Alarm.com remote service. To be able to use alarm.com, a compatible service plan with a dealer is required. Alarm.com requires, at a minimum, a cellular-capable plan to activate the service. For Alarm Grid customers, this is a Gold Plan (Self or Full) or higher.


Upon activation of the Alarm.com service, your dealer will provide you with the credentials required to log in to the application. This can be done from a smartphone, a tablet, or from a computer browser. Follow the steps below to arm your IQ Panel 4, from your phone:

1. Log in to the alarm.com app. Use your dealer-provided credentials to log in to the app from your smartphone.


2. Arm the alarm panel. From the main screen of the app, you can select the Disarmed icon to initiate an Arm Stay or Arm Away. You will have options such as Silent Arming (doubles the exit delay time), No Entry Delay (provides exit delay but no entry delay), Force Bypass (automatically bypass faulted sensors), and Bypass Specific Sensors (manually bypass specific zones) options.

Make any desired selections, then hit Arm (Stay) or Arm (Away). Also, at the top of the main screen are scene options. If you are still at default scenes as shown in the image below, then these can be used for arming as well. Away will arm the IQ Panel 4 Away and Sleep will arm it Stay. Selecting a scene will prompt you to confirm the selection.


3. Verify the panel has armed. Check the status to make sure that the system is armed in the correct mode.
