How Do I Add a Z-Wave Device to the Qolsys IQ Panel 2?
You can add a Z-Wave device to the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 by clearing the device from the network, putting the system into its Z-Wave enrollment mode, and finally activating the inclusion function on the Z-Wave device. The settings for the Z-Wave device can then be adjusted as needed.
Complete the following steps to add a Z-Wave device to the Qolsys IQ Panel 2:
1. Clear the device. All Z-Wave devices should be cleared from the network before being added. This will help to ensure that they function properly. To clear a Z-Wave device from the IQ Panel 2, start by pressing the small grey bar at the top of the screen. Then choose Settings > Advanced Settings > Installer Code (default is 1111) > Installation > Devices > Z-Wave Devices > Clear Device. The panel will now be in its exclusion mode for clearing.
To clear the Z-Wave device, activate the device's inclusion function while the panel is in its exclusion mode. Many Z-Wave devices have a button for this purpose. But others may need to have a different type of function performed. Check the manual for the Z-Wave device for more information. You may need to bring the Z-Wave device close to the IQ Panel 2 in order for the command to go through successfully. The panel will display a message once the device has been successfully cleared. Click "OK" to continue.
2. Include the device. After clearing the device, press the "Add Device" button on the IQ Panel 2. Then press "Pair". This will put the panel into its inclusion mode. Then activate the inclusion function on the Z-Wave device in the same manner that was completed in Step 1. Again, the Z-Wave device may need to be close to the panel when doing this. The panel will display a message once it has recognized the device.
3. Configure the settings. The panel will then allow you to configure any relevant settings for the Z-Wave device. This usually includes providing a name for the device. Press "Add" when finished to add the device to the Z-Wave network. Then press the picture of the house at the bottom of the screen to return to the home screen.
4. Test the device. If necessary, install the Z-Wave device, making sure that it is within range of the Z-Wave mesh network. Then return to the IQ Panel 2. Swipe left on the main screen until you reach a menu with the particular type of Z-Wave device (e.g. lights, locks, etc.). Then locate the specific device you named earlier. Click on it to make sure that the device responds appropriately.
