Can I Use More than One Keypad On a Qolsys IQ Panel 2?
Yes, you can use more than one keypad on a Qolsys IQ Panel 2. This is possible using a Qolsys IQ Remote. The IQ Remote will provide a second point of on-site access for the IQ Panel 2. You can program up to three different IQ Remote touchscreen keypads to a single IQ Panel 2 System.
Most users operate their IQ Panel 2 System from the actual panel itself. But some users with larger properties may want to add a second physical access point for the system. This is where the IQ Remote comes in. The device serves as a secondary controller for the IQ Panel 2. It can be used to arm and disarm the system and to control any programmed Z-Wave devices. Many users install these devices near secondary entry points and in bedrooms to provide additional quick access points for the system. Follow this guide to pair the IQ Remote with the IQ Panel 2.
The IQ Remote connects with the IQ Panel 2 using a secure WIFI connection. The external touchscreen keypad must be on the same WIFI network as the IQ Panel 2 in order to complete the syncing process. The IQ Remote is paired with the IQ Panel 2 through programming. You will need to know the Installer Code (default 1111) or the Dealer Code (default 2222) to complete the syncing. A total of three different IQ Remote devices can be paired with a single IQ Panel 2 System. This will provide a total of four on-site access points for the system.
Please note that a user can also operate their IQ Panel 2 System through the Alarm.com service. This service provides many of the same functions as the IQ Remote. By accessing Alarm.com, a user can arm and disarm the system, check the status of sensors and control Z-Wave home automation devices. And with the Alarm.com Mobile App, all of these actions can be performed from virtually anywhere using any compatible iOS or Android device.
