Can I Turn Off Arm-Confirm on a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Alarm System?

No, you cannot turn off Arm-Confirm on a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Alarm System. This is because the IQ Panel 2 does not have an Arm-Confirm feature. The system will not emit a loud tone when using a key fob or keypad to Arm Away. The system will simply act as if it were armed from the panel.

The purpose of an Arm-Confirm feature is to verify that an Arming command went through. It is very important for a user to know that their system has entered Arm Away mode. They must leave the premises within the Exit Delay period. Otherwise, they risk activating an Interior Zone and causing an immediate system alarm. That is why many panels will produce a loud single tone when the system is Armed Away using a key fob or keypad. This tone is known as the Arm-Confirm feature.

Most systems only produce an Arm-Confirm tone when Arming Away. They do not usually produce the tone when Arming Stay with a key fob or keypad. This is because Interior Zones are bypassed when the system is in Armed Stay Mode. Even if the user doesn't realize their system is Armed Stay, they have a much lower chance of setting off a false alarm than if they Arm Away.

Many users want to turn off the Arm-Confirm tone for their panel because they find it annoying. Although the tone is brief, it is still often as loud as a siren. Fortunately, most panels that do possess the feature have an option for turning it off. This option is typically present within a sounders menu of programming. But there is no such option for the IQ Panel 2, as the system does not possess this feature.

Keep in mind though that the IQ Panel 2 will still emit the regular tones, chimes and voice annunciations when you Arm Away using a key fob or keypad. The only difference is that it won't emit a single loud tone like a panel with an Arm-Confirm feature. Arming from a key fob or keypad will have the IQ Panel 2 behave no differently than if it were armed directly from the panel.
