How Do I Enroll a VERSA-GE Sensor With a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus?
You can enroll a VERSA-GE Sensor with a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus by putting the system into its auto-enrollment mode and then activating the sensor's tamper cover. The system will recognize the new sensor and allow you to configure its programming settings. Save your changes when finished.
The VERSA-GE operates at 319.5 MHz. As a result, it will only work with the 319.5 MHz version of the IQ Panel 2 Plus. If you have a 345 MHz IQ Panel 2 Plus or a 433 MHz IQ Panel 2 Plus, then the device cannot be enrolled. Luckily, there are other versions of this exact same door and window sensor. The 5800MINI and the VERSA-2GIG are both the same sensor as the VERSA-GE, but they operate at different wireless frequencies. You can identify which sensor you have by looking at the circuit board. The VERSA-GE will have a blue board. The 5800MINI will have a red board. The VERSA-2GIG will have a yellow board.
The 5800MINI operates at the same 345 MHz frequency as the Honeywell 5800 Series Sensors. That's because it is a 5800 Series Sensor. It will work with most Honeywell Systems and 2GIG Systems. The VERSA-2GIG operates at the same 345 MHz as the 2GIG Sensors. Although 345 MHz, is the same as the 5800 Series Devices, the compatibility for the 2GIG Sensors is different. The VERSA-2GIG is not technically considered a 2GIG Sensor, but it can be treated the same. It will even work with the 2GIG Repeater. The VERSA-2GIG will work with 2GIG Systems and the Honeywell Lyric Alarm System (firmware MR4 or higher required).
Complete the following steps to enroll a VERSA-GE Sensor with a 319.5 MHz Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus:
1. Enter auto-enrollment mode. Start from the main screen of the IQ2+. Click the small grey bar at the top. Choose Settings > Advanced Settings > enter Installer Code (default 1111) > Installation > Devices > Security Sensors > Auto Learn Sensor. The system is now in auto-enrollment mode.
2. Enroll the sensor. With the battery installed, open the tamper cover for the VERSA-GE Sensor. The system will recognize the sensor and ask if you want to continue. Choose OK. You can then reapply the tamper cover. Alternatively, when enabled in installer/dealer settings, you can fault and restore the sensor to auto-enroll. To do this, hold the included magnet against the sensor then separate it from the sensor. This will release a reed switch inside the sensor. The system should recognize the fault and ask if you want to enroll the device. Select OK to continue.
3. Configure the zone. Adjust the zone settings accordingly. The Sensor DL ID should be already filled-in since you auto-enrolled. The Sensor Type should be Door/Window. Set the Sensor Group based on how you want the system to respond when the sensor is faulted (Group 10 is the default for this Sensor Type). Provide a Sensor Name. Choose a Chime Type. You can set the Chime Type to "None" if you don't want the zone to chime. Set Voice Prompts to On or Off. The Source should already be set since you auto-enrolled.
4. Save your changes. Click the Add New button at the bottom to save your changes. Then press the picture of the house at the bottom of the screen to return to the home screen.
