How Do I Add a Key Fob to a Qolsys IQ Panel 2?
You can add a key fob to a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 by putting the system into its learn mode and then activating the device. This is typically done by pressing the lock and unlock buttons on the key fob at the same time. You can then adjust the settings and configurations for the key fob.
The Qolsys IQ Panel 2 will work with virtually any key fob that operates at a wireless frequency of 319.5 MHz. Some compatible key fob devices include the Qolsys IQ Fob-S and the Interlogix Micro Key Fob.
Please note that this is assuming that the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 is using the standard 319.5 MHz board. If the system is instead using a daughterboard that accepts sensors at a different frequency, then the key fob will need to communicate at that frequency. Some of the other daughterboards accept the 345 MHz frequency for legacy Honeywell and 2GIG Sensors and the 433 MHz frequency for legacy DSC Sensors. Make sure that the key fob you are attempting to add is compatible with the daughterboard and the wireless receiver used with the IQ Panel 2 System.
Complete the following steps to add a key fob to a Qolsys IQ Panel 2:
1. Activate learn mode. Start from the main screen of the IQ Panel 2. Click the small grey bar at the top of the screen. Then choose Settings, followed by advanced settings. Then enter in either the Installer Code or the Dealer Code for the system. These codes are respectively set to 1111 and 2222 by default. From there, choose Installation > Devices > Security Sensors > Auto Learn Sensor. This will activate the learn mode on the system.
2. Activate the key fob. Take the key fob and activate its enrollment function to learn it in. This is typically done by pressing the lock and unlock buttons on the key fob at the same time. However, the process may be slightly different for different types of key fobs. Check the device's manual for more information. The IQ Panel 2 should chime and acknowledge that a new device has been recognized. Press "OK".
3. Adjust the settings. You can then adjust the settings for the key fob. Make sure to set the sensor type, provide a sensor name and choose an appropriate sensor group.
4. Save the changes. Once you have finished adjusting the settings, press the "Add New" button at the bottom of the screen. The key fob will be saved to the system. Then press the picture of the house at the bottom of the screen to return to the home screen.
