Can I Arm/Disarm a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 From My Phone?
Yes, you can arm and disarm a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 from your phone. This is possible using the Alarm.com interactive service. The user will need an alarm monitoring plan that includes access to Alarm.com. Only alarm monitoring plans that offer cellular connectivity include Alarm.com service.
Alarm.com offers many benefits for end users. A user can access the service at any time to arm or disarm their system, control Z-Wave smart home devices, check the current status of security sensors and view the live feed of any programmed security cameras. This can all be done from a web browser or through the Alarm.com Mobile App. By using Alarm.com Mobile App on an iOS or Android device, all of these functions can be performed from virtually anywhere in the world.
Alarm.com can only be accessed by a system if it has an active cellular communicator. Luckily, the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 System comes with a cellular module that is already built-in. Both AT&T and Verizon versions of the system are available. The cellular network that is used by the alarm panel has nothing to do with the network the end user has for their regular cellular service. We recommend selecting whichever network provides the best signal strength in the customer's area.
To activate the cellular communicator and access Alarm.com, a user will need an alarm monitoring plan that includes cellular connectivity. For Alarm Grid customers, any Gold or Platinum level plan will provide this service. After the monitoring company has activated the system, the end user will receive an email that outlines the steps to get started with Alarm.com. This includes creating an Alarm.com account. The user will use this account information to access Alarm.com.
A user must download the Alarm.com Mobile App to control their IQ Panel 2 System from their phone. The mobile app is available for free download from both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Once the user has downloaded the app, they can login to Alarm.com using their account information. From there, the user will be able to arm and disarm their IQ Panel 2 System from their phone.
