The Qolsys IQ Shock-S is an encrypted wireless sensor that serves as both a shock detector and as a door and window contact. The wireless sensor operates at 319.5 MHz, and it utilizes rolling encryption protection when used with the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 or IQ Panel 2 Plus Security Systems.
As a shock sensor, the Qolsys IQ Shock-S will detect the shockwaves associated with a door or window being broken down for forced entry. The sensor also has a built-in reed switch and an included magnet, allowing it to be used as a door and window contact. When the magnet separates from the sensor, the internal reed switch will activate, causing the sensor to alert the security system. The device can have a maximum one-inch gap from the magnet.
As a 319.5 MHz Sensor, the IQ Shock-S can be used with any of the Qolsys Alarm Systems. It can also be used with the GE/Interlogix Systems. However, the device will only utilize rolling code encryption when used with the IQ Panel 2 or IQ Panel 2 Plus. If used with a different system, it will only operate as a standard unencrypted wireless sensor.
An LED light and built-in sounder on the IQ Shock-S assists the user with testing. The device uses a 3V lithium CR123A battery that will need to be replaced every few years. The shock sensor sensitivity can be adjusted as needed to ensure proper functionality, while also preventing false alarms.
