How Do I Learn the DSC PG9929 Key Fob to the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus?
You can learn the DSC PG9929 Key Fob to the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus by pressing and holding the bottom Star (*) button on the fob while the system is in its wireless enrollment mode. You must keep holding the button until the LED light appears for a second time after initially disappearing.
The DSC PG9929 is a PowerG Sensor that sends out encrypted signals at a frequency of 915 MHz. It will work with any Qolsys IQ Panel 2 System that has a PowerG daughtercard installed. The only way to get this daughtercard is to purchase an IQ Panel 2 Plus. Qolsys does not sell any standalone daughtercards for end users to install inside a standard Qolsys IQ Panel 2. Most users will use the PG9929 for general arming and disarming, though it can also be used to trigger system panics.
To learn-in the PG9929 with the IQ Panel 2, complete the following steps:
1. Access enrollment mode. Start from the main screen of the IQ Panel 2 Plus with the system disarmed. Click the small grey bar at the top of the screen. Then choose Settings > Advanced Settings > Installer Code (default 1111) > Installation > Devices > Security Sensors > Auto-Learn Sensor. This will put the system into its wireless enrollment mode.
2. Enroll the device. Press and hold the Star (*) button on the key fob. This is the auxiliary button that is usually used to trigger panic alerts. The LED light will flash red. Continue to hold down the button, and do not release it. Keep holding down the button when the LED light disappears. After a brief moment, the LED light will flash yellow. Release the button with the yellow light illuminated. The panel should recognize the key fob and ask you if you would like to enroll it. Press OK.
3. Adjust the settings. You must go through and configure the zone settings. The Sensor DL ID should be already filled-in since you auto-enrolled the device. Set the Sensor Type to Key Fob. The Sensor Group should be set based on how you want the system to respond when the key fob is activated. The typical Sensor Group for a Key Fob is 1-Mobile Intrusion. This will allow the fob to arm Away, Stay, Disarm, and set off a police panic. You can set Sensor Name, Chime Type and Voice Prompts however you would like. Source should be set to PowerG. Press Add New to continue. When programming is complete, press the picture of the house at the bottom to return to the main screen.
4. Test the key fob. Contact your central monitoring station, and ask them to put your system on test mode. Try to arm and disarm the system using your key fob. You can also test the panic function as well. Make sure that you can control your system using the key fob. You can then take the system off of test mode.
