Will Alarm.com Work w/ a Qolsys IQ Panel 2?
Yes, Alarm.com will work with a Qolsys IQ Panel 2. The system can connect with the service as long as it has active cellular monitoring service. This requires an appropriate alarm monitoring plan. The interactive service can be accessed from a web browser or using the Alarm.com Mobile App.
Alarm.com is an interactive service platform that allows a user to control their system in some useful ways. A user can access the service at any time to arm and disarm their system, check the current status of sensors, control Z-Wave home automation devices, view the live feed of their security cameras and more. This service can be accessed through a web browser or using the Alarm.com Mobile App. With the mobile app, you can control your IQ Panel 2 from virtually anywhere. The app is available for free download for any Android or iOS device.
But in order to work with Alarm.com, the IQ Panel 2 will need to be receiving active cellular monitoring service. The system comes included with a built-in cellular communicator for this purpose. Most systems receive service from either Verizon or AT&T. However, the user will also need to obtain an alarm monitoring plan that includes cellular service. For Alarm Grid, these are the Gold and Platinum level monitoring plans. We invite you to check out our alarm monitoring page for more information about our plans.
Once the user has the monitoring plan activated, their alarm monitoring company should send them an email with instructions on how to get started with Alarm.com. This includes creating an Alarm.com account. This account is very important, as the user will need their account information to log-in to the Alarm.com service. We recommend storing the Alarm.com account username and password in a safe place in case it is needed later.
