Can I Connect to the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 w/ an iPad?
Yes, you can connect the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 with an iPad. This is possible using the Alarm.com service and the Alarm.com Mobile App. This app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store. The user will need an active Alarm.com account and monitoring service in order to do this.
Alarm.com is an interactive service platform that allows users to control their security system without having to actually access the system on-site. A user can pull up the Alarm.com service at any time using a web browser or the designated mobile app. Once a user has accessed Alarm.com, they can arm and disarm their system, check the current status of sensors, control Z-Wave home automation devices, view their security cameras and more.
The Alarm.com Mobile App will work with virtually any iOS device, including an iPad. It can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store. Once a user has accessed the Alarm.com Mobile App on their iPad, they will need to log-in to their Alarm.com account. This requires providing their Alarm.com username (usually their email address) and their password. From there, they will be able to control their IQ Panel 2 System using their iPad.
In order to get started with Alarm.com, a user must have active cellular monitoring service. Since the IQ Panel 2 already includes an integrated cellular communicator, a separate communicator will not need to be added. But the user will still need a cellular monitoring plan. For Alarm Grid, these are the Gold and Platinum level monitoring plans. More information about these plans can be found on our monitoring page.
Once an alarm monitoring company has activated the cellular communicator inside the IQ Panel 2, they will send the user the resources needed to get started with Alarm.com. The user will receive an email with instructions on how to set up an Alarm.com account. Once a user has created their account, they can use that information to sign-in to Alarm.com.
