How Do I Program a DSC PG9303 to a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus?
You can program a DSC PG9303 to a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus by putting the panel into its wireless auto-enrollment mode and then powering the DSC PG9303 to have it send out an enrollment signal. The IQ Panel 2 Plus should receive the signal and then allow you to auto enroll the sensor.
The DSC PG9303 is a wireless door and window sensor. It is a PowerG Sensor, and it will work with any Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus System, as these systems have PowerG daughterboards installed. When used with a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus in an open air environment, the DSC PG9303 will offer a wireless range of up to 2,000 feet. This range can be further extended using a DSC PG9920 PowerG Repeater if desired. Remember that obstacles such as thick walls and large metal objects reduce wireless range. The sensor is easy to program, and it can be auto-enrolled to prevent any mistakes while entering the Serial Number, also known as the Sensor DL ID.
1. Enter auto-enrollment mode. From the main screen of the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus, click the small grey bar at the top, and choose Settings > Advanced Settings > enter Installer Code or Dealer Code (defaults are 1111 and 2222, respectively) > Installation > Devices > Security Sensors > Auto Learn Sensor. The system will now be in its auto-enrollment mode.
2. Activate the sensor. Have the DSC PG9303 send an enrollment signal to the panel by powering it on. If it is the first time enrolling the sensor and it is brand-new, then you can do this by removing the battery tab. If not, open up the sensor, remove both of its coin batteries, wait five (5) seconds, and then reinsert them. You should get a message on the IQ Panel 2 Plus stating that it is trying to enroll a PowerG Sensor. Click OK.
3. Configure the zone settings. Go through and configure the zone settings as needed. The Sensor DL ID can be left alone, since you auto-enrolled the sensor. The same is true for the Source field. The Sensor Type should be set to door/window. Chime Type and Voice Prompts can be configured to your liking. For Sensor Name, choose a name that will help you easily recognize the sensor. Sensor Group is the most important setting, as it determines how the system responds when the sensor is faulted. Please review this FAQ to learn more about IQ2+ Sensor Groups. 10 - Entry/Exit Normal Delay or 13 - Instant Perimeter Door/Window are the most commonly used Sensor Groups for the PG9303. Once you are finished, press the Add New at the bottom of the screen. The wireless zone will be saved.
4. Return home. Once you have completed programming, return to the home screen by clicking the picture of the house at the bottom of the screen. Any changes you made while in programming will be automatically saved.
