How Do I Connect a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 to Phone Line Monitoring?

You cannot connect a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 to phone line monitoring. The system does not have a phone jack or an integrated dialer. As a result, the system will not support a phone line connection. But the IQ Panel 2 provides all the tools needed for a dual-path setup with WIFI and cellular.

Qolsys iq panel 2 at and t wireless security system with at and Phone line connectivity represents an old and outdated technology for alarm systems. This type of monitoring is only suitable for the most basic of security setups. Phone line connectivity provides slow speeds, and it is very unreliable in general. Additionally, it is possible for others to tamper with a phone line connection and render the system unprotected. Qolsys knew this when they created the IQ Panel 2, and they did not provide phone line support for the system.

However, the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 is capable of using a more advanced dual-path communication setup that features both WIFI and cellular connectivity. This type of setup can be achieved right out of the box, as the IQ Panel 2 comes with an integrated WIFI card and an Alarm.com cellular radio. Most IQ Panel 2 Systems will use both WIFI and cellular communication paths. All alarm signals will be sent on both paths, when available, and the signal that reaches the server first will be processed. In this way, the fastest available signal path is always used. To do this, an alarm monitoring plan that includes cellular connectivity is needed. For Alarm Grid, these are the Gold and Platinum level plans.

By setting up the IQ Panel 2 with cellular, the system can connect with Alarm.com. This is an interactive service platform that a user can access to control their alarm system. By accessing Alarm.com, a user can arm and disarm their system, check the current status of programmed sensors, control Z-Wave home automation devices and more. Alarm.com also offers their own mobile app, which allows these actions to be performed from anywhere using an Android or iOS device.
