Can I Connect an iPhone to a Qolsys IQ Panel 2?
Yes, you can connect an iPhone to a Qolsys IQ Panel 2. This is accomplished using the Alarm.com interactive service. By accessing Alarm.com a user is able to operate their alarm system from a remote location. Alarm.com offers a mobile app that iOS devices can use to access the service.
Alarm.com allows users to arm and disarm their system, check the current status of sensors, control Z-Wave devices and view the live feed of their security cameras all from one convenient access point. And with the Alarm.com Mobile App, these actions can be performed from virtually anywhere. All you need to do is access the network from your iPhone, and you can control your IQ Panel 2. The Alarm.com Mobile App is available for free from the Apple App Store.
In order to control your IQ Panel 2 with your iPhone, the security system must be configured to work with the Alarm.com service. This system must have an active cellular connection and receive alarm monitoring service that includes access to Alarm.com. Getting the IQ Panel 2 connected to cellular is easy, since the system comes with a cellular communicator that is built-in. Depending on the communicator, most IQ Panel 2 Systems connect to either the AT&T or the Verizon network. We recommend choosing the service that works best in your area.
The user will also need an alarm monitoring plan that includes cellular service. For Alarm Grid, these are the Gold and Platinum level monitoring plans. After the user has signed up for monitoring, their alarm company will help them get their communicator activated. They will then send an email with instructions on how to get started with Alarm.com. Once the user is on Alarm.com, they can use their Alarm.com account credentials to login to the Alarm.com Mobile App on their iPhone to control their Qolsys IQ Panel 2 System.
