Can the DSC PowerG Keypad Be Used With Partitions on the IQ Panel 2 Plus?

Yes, the DSC PowerG Keypad can be used with partitions on the IQ Panel 2 Plus. Also known as the DSC WS9LCDWF9 PowerG Wireless Arming Station, this keypad can be assigned to a specific partition on the IQ2+, or you can set it as a Global Partition to control all partitions simultaneously.


The DSC WS9LCDWF9 PowerG Wireless Arming Station can interface with any version of the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus. The keypad is good for showing faulted zones, arming, disarming, and toggling Chime ON and OFF. However, one thing it cannot do is bypass faulted zones. If you try to bypass a faulted zone using the DSC WS9LCDWF9 PoweG Wireless Arming Station, then you will get the message "Function not available." Emergency panic features are also supported on the keypad. Remember that the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus System must be running Firmware Version 2.3.2 or higher to support the keypad. Check this page to see the latest Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus Firmware and how to upgrade if needed. You can have up to four (4) total keypads set up with the IQ Panel 2 Plus, but you can only have two (2) keypads assigned to a single system partition.

How the DSC WS9LCDWF9 PowerG Wireless Arming station Keypad works with partitions depends on whether system partitions were enabled or disabled at the time of keypad enrollment. If partitions are enabled when you enroll the keypad, then you will be able to choose a partition assignment at the time of enrollment. If partitions are disabled at the time of enrollment, then the option for a partition assignment will not be displayed. But if you enable partitions later, then you can edit the enrolled keypad to select a partition assignment. Remember that the DSC WS9LCDWF9 Keypad is enrolled with the IQ Panel 2 Plus as a Security Sensor. To access the menu where you can enroll a new keypad or edit an existing one, start from the main screen, click the small grey bar at the top of the screen, and then click Settings > Advanced Settings > enter Installer Code (default 1111) > Installation > Devices > Security Sensors. Auto Learn Sensor is used for enrolling a new keypad, and Edit Sensor is for editing an already enrolled keypad.
