The Qolsys IQ Pro is a complete hybrid system. It combines features from the Qolsys IQ Panel 4, and the DSC PowerSeries NEO. It is packed with features and expandable to provide protection for almost any type of space. It has hardwired, addressable loop, and PowerG wireless sensors. It also has native LTE, WIFI, Bluetooth, Ethernet, and Z-Wave. All this powered by a Qualcomm SnapDragon 8 Core SOM (System On a Module) with 16 GB of NAND Flash.
The IQ Pro is geared more towards commercial establishments or large homes, but can also work in an average size home or business. This is due to its ability to expand with various modules depending on your needs. Without expanding the eight (8) on-board zones and built-in wireless capabilities allow it to fit nearly any space. The ability to expand in any direction, whether it's wireless, hardwired, or addressable loop, makes this a customizable alarm system that can also accommodate a large space. The IQ Pro is a great fit for many businesses, hospitals, churches, and schools.
The IQ Pro supports up to 128 zones, 8 partitions, 1000 users, and 16 keypads. The keypads can be up to sixteen (16) hardwired, up to five (5) wireless or PowerG IQ remotes, and up to three (3) IQ Remote touchscreens. It can also support up to ten (10) PowerG PIR Cameras such as the PG9944 Outdoor Motion Camera, or the indoor PG9934P PIR Camera. It has four (4) onboard programmable outputs and is expandable up to 148 programmable outputs. It also has built-in dual-path communicators. Ethernet or WIFI, and an LTE Cellular communicator.
The IQ Pro has many options. You may opt for either a Verizon, AT&T, or Telus (Canada) LTE cellular communicator. There is a PowerG-only IQ Pro, for those who only plan to use the long-range, encrypted sensors. Or in addition to PowerG, users can also opt to include a legacy RF receiver. Options include either a 345 MHz Honeywell or 2GIG compatible, 319.5 MHz Qolsys or Interlogix/GE compatible, or 433 MHz legacy DSC compatible model. You must also choose between a metal and a plastic enclosure. This version of the IQ Pro comes in a plastic enclosure, with a Verizon LTE communicator, and support for PowerG only wireless sensors.
One very important thing to note with the plastic enclosure is if the cellular signal strength is so low that it requires an external antenna, then the use of the plastic enclosure is not possible. The external antenna is only compatible with a metal enclosure Qolsys IQ Pro. There also is no option to just swap out the enclosures. So, there is no solution to convert a Plastic enclosure IQ Pro to a metal enclosure if an external antenna is needed.
The IQ Pro offers options to connect to Alarm.com over the internet and LTE cellular paths. The internet or IP can be either WIFI or Ethernet, but not both. As with all Alarm.com communicators, signals will be sent on both, the IP and LTE Cellular paths, at the same time for each signal. All communication paths connect through Alarm.com for monitoring. Access to their interactive services is also through the alarm.com customer website or the alarm.com app. The Alarm.com mobile app is available on iOS and Android app stores. For Alarm Grid customers, you will need either a Gold Plan (Self or Full) or higher, or a Cellular Alarm Monitoring plan when using the Qolsys IQ Pro.
Add to the eight (8) on-board hardwired zones with an HSM2108 hardwired zone expander. Each HSM2108 adds up to eight (8) additional hardwired zones. New to the IQ PRO is the option to use an MX addressable loop. Some older PowerSeries panels used addressable devices, but the devices that worked on those panels are not compatible with this panel. The IQ Pro uses the HSM3105 module for addressable loop expansion of up to 124 MX zones. Remember, regardless of which expansion route you take, the IQ Pro will support a total of 128 zones.
When more power is needed, the HSM2300 and the HSM2204 are available. The HSM2300 is a power supply module that provides an additional 1A of current. The HSM2204 is a power supply and PGM module combined. It provides an additional 1A of current and four (4) high-current programmable outputs.
The Qolsys IQ Pro supports the ability to Bluetooth disarm and it can be the hub for your Z-Wave network. Add an IQ Remote for touchscreen access and control of these automation devices. It is available as a WIFI IQ Remote and now even a PowerG IQ Remote. The IQ remote will also add the ability to do voice chime, on-board camera for disarm photos, and live-view of supported Alarm.com cameras and supported doorbell cameras.
The Qolsys IQ Pro has a QR code that can be scanned to quickly begin configuring the system. The IQ Pro Installer App is available as a free download from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. This app is used to configure every aspect of the IQ Pro system, from zone programming to Z-Wave automation devices.
