Is the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Compatible w/ Alarm.com?
Yes, the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 is compatible with Alarm.com. The system will need active cellular monitoring in order for it to work with the service. The IQ Panel 2 comes with a built-in cellular communicator. But the user will still need a monitoring plan that provides cellular service.
One of the main benefitd of Alarm.com is that it provides an additional point of access to an alarm system. The service can be accessed at any time to arm or disarm the system, check the status of sensors, control Z-Wave devices, view the live feed of security cameras and more. The service can be accessed using a web browser, or the Alarm.com Mobile App can be used to reach the service from almost anywhere. The Alarm.com Mobile App is available for free download for any Android or iOS device.
However, the IQ Panel 2 can only work with Alarm.com if it is receiving active cellular monitoring. The system features an integrated cellular communication module for this application. The cellular network that the system connects with is determined by this module. Most IQ Panel 2 Systems connect with either the Verizon or AT&T network. But in addition to this included communicator, the user will also need to have an alarm monitoring plan that includes cellular service. All of the Gold and Platinum level monitoring plans from Alarm Grid include cellular service. Please check out our alarm monitoring page for more information.
Upon activating a cellular monitoring plan, the user's alarm monitoring company will create the account, then send them information on how to get started with Alarm.com. This typically comes in the form of an email indicating the username, with a link to create an Alarm.com password. The IQ Panel 2 System will be paired with Alarm.com during this process. The user can then access the Alarm.com platform at any time to control their IQ Panel 2.
