Adding a Wireless Zone to a Qolsys IQ Panel 2



hi di wires I'm George from alarm grid today I'm gonna be showing you guys how to add in a wireless zone to your quotes this IQ panel - or your colas IQ panel - plus so for today's video the quotes is I keep annal - can learn in 128 different wireless zones doors motions class breaks flood the Tector seal detectors smoke detectors heat detectors any kind of security sensor that you think you may have for the IQ - plus as long as it is a wireless sensor it will be added and the system can hold up to 128 of them all right now right today I'm actually using a normal IQ - which means that it has only the three nineteen point five megahertz receiver for those of you out there that have an IQ 2 plus that means you might be using power G sensors and then depending on the flavor that you got you might have the three 19.5 legacy daughterboard card you might have the Honeywell slash 2 gig daughterboard card which is the 345 megahertz or you might have the DSC legacy daughterboard card which is 433 megahertz now all of the IQ 2 plus is half power G so it's power G plus one of the ones I just mentioned so depending on what sensors you're learning in you want to make sure you have the correct sensor and the correct panel now today I'm actually learning in this s line door window sensor and this transmits at a 319 point 5 megahertz which is actually compatible with my system alright so to start off you are going to need your installer code or your dealer code for the security system the installer code and the dealer code if you buy the system brand new the default installer code is 1 1 1 1 and the default dealer code is 2 2 2 2 so if your panels defaulted and brand new you can use any of these codes to get into the installer menu so you can actually program in these sensors I'm going to show you guys what the two menus look like right now I'm going to show you guys what the master menu looks like a lot of people think they have their installer or dealer code but it's really just a cool that they arm and disarm with which is completely different yeah so there's a big diff between a master code and installer code and a dealer code so the first thing we need to do is on on your IQ 2 plus you very first time setting it up you're gonna hit the little bar up at the very top it's gonna open up your menu you're gonna go to settings now when we go to advanced settings this is where you're going to need to enter in your installer code or your dealer code my installer code menu is going to look like this after I enter in 1 1 1 1 you're gonna see these these menu options right here now when I enter into my dealer code I'm just gonna hit the back arrow key Advanced Settings enter in my dealer code I should get this I should still get the same settings but with a little more such as there's a dealer branding there's a couple of other different options that you have under the new layer 1 but the main one that we need to look at is installation now what happens if you don't enter in the correct code let's say you enter in your master code which for mine again my panel is defaulted so it's 1 2 3 4 you're not going to see installation installation is actually what we need to install these sensors so if you enter in a code and you get this screen right here where it says master settings you have not entered in the correct code so we need to hit the back arrow key go to advanced settings and again installer code or dealer code I'm gonna do installer code 1 1 1 1 I'm gonna go to installation I'm gonna go to devices and we're installing security sensors so I'm gonna hit security sensors now the easiest way to do this is by Auto learning the sensor in it's very easy to do once you hit all to learn sensor the system is gonna go into a listening mode what the system does is this now it's gonna start listening for any wireless frequencies that are tripped most of these batteries come with like a little plastic tab that you pull out finally make the con the battery come into contact with the arm with the actual power source to power the sensor on so most of these is just a simple battery type pool but I already have an existing sensor so I'm actually gonna trip it so I'm gonna put the magnet next to the reed switch and I'm gonna set it off once I do that we'll send a wireless transmission and this panel will receive the transmission and it'll read the serial number that's on the back of the system that's that serial number that's attached to this sensor and you can actually match them up I'll show you that in one second so I'm gonna go to auto learn sensor now from here I'm gonna put the magnet next to my sensor if you guys are powering it on you guys just simply pull the battery tab or the battery tab pool doesn't work if it still it doesn't learn in just put the magnet next to the sensor open it up the sent the the sent the signal is sent the transmission is sent from the sensor and then it's been learned in or it's been picked up by the alarm system now if you look at the system here the sensor that I picked up was Charlie six seven nine alpha eight if you look at the back of my sensor which we're actually gonna go to close up the serial number I'm sorry not the serial number the DL number is the one that we're gonna want to look at should also match what you see on the closest screen so if you look at the coldest screen it says Charlie six seven nine alpha eight the DL number on the back of my sensor also says Charlie six seven nine alpha eight after you confirm that they're matching you can hit OK now before we get into this menu the reason why we want to confirm is let's say you have sensors that are already set up in the field some of you guys walk around the house you put the panel into listening mode you walk around and you go to open up a door but what if you walk past emotion when you open up that door the motion picks up on your signal it sends out a wireless transmission you think that that sensor number is actually the front door sensor but it's actually the motion that you tripped on your way to the front door so you want to make sure that you guys are always paying attention to the serial numbers and you're matching them accordingly to the sensor you want to learn in alright so just make sure you're playing close attention to that right so again here top left starting from the left going to the right will have the DL ID number which again that matches what's on the back of our sensor six seven nine alpha eight the sensor type is going to be door/window yeah you're pretty much always gonna leave it the same when you learn in a motion it'll come in as a motion if you learn you know glass break it'll come in on the glass break a couple of different options they pretty much automatically go to their own sensor type the one thing that you probably will need to change is going to be the sensor group now when you're looking at the sensor group you're gonna want to make sure you're looking at all the all of the options here and if you look at the installation guide or the programming guide for the IQ two plus on one of the pages you actually have all your sensor groups and what they actually do our FAQ actually has a direct link to the actual guide and it tells you what page to go to so you want to make sure that you're looking at that page so that you choose the correct one right now since I'm technically gonna be using this for my front door I'm gonna leave it as an entry exit normal delay now if I'm putting this on a window I don't want there to be a delay I might set it as a instant perimeter door / window instant perimeter means that as soon as the door window is open no matter whether the system is armed stay or way or in the middle of arming if that door window is open there is no delay it automatically sets the alarm off right away which is normally what you want for windows you don't want there to be a delay for the windows so I'm just gonna go ahead since this is gonna be my front door sensor I'll leave it as entry exit now the sensor name this is where you're gonna actually type in the description of your sensor where it's going to be located this one is front door it gives you a couple of options if you scroll through it however if you want to make a custom description like let's say you want to put output video sensor you could actually make a custom description and the the chip that's in this IQ - plus it can actually read out all your custom descriptions so it's not like most alarm systems out there like I know some of the Honeywell ones they have predefined vocabulary or dictionaries where if you don't use a word that's in the dictionary it won't actually enunciate or vocal enunciate the sensor this one actually does which would have with whatever you type in so I'll type in video sensor the chime you can add it a different time on here whatever you want I could put Tinker Bell right voice prompts this is if you want the sensor to actually voice enunciate so I'm gonna set it to on it was already set to on and it's that way I can actually hear video sensor and then the source this is something that you also do not have to touch remember I said this was an s-line sensor so it actually learned it in as an s-line and since this is a normal IQ too you also see that the security 319 it's 319 point five but it just says 319 for short now if you guys are using different sensors honeywell 345 DSC 433 or power g that's gonna show up in your source as well you don't have to change it if you automatically enroll them the source will automatically be set after you've configured everything for your sensor you have to hit add new in order for the sensor to be saved it'll say sensor added successfully and then once you're done learning your door window sensor you can go ahead and back out press the home button right so once you press the home button backs you out to the main screen now this is just for a door window sensor right every sensor has its own unique way of being enrolled in some motion sensors upon powering up they go into a test mode so obviously if you have the auto learn if you have your system in auto learn you just is it since it's in walk-test mode if you trip it will send this transmission smoke detectors have an enrollment button some glass break detectors as you can see I just tripped the sensor and it actually says video sensor open I'll let you guys hear it one more time and it also shows you I'm gonna go to all but it shows you what sensors are there right now it says the video sensor is closed right but if I open it it'll say video Suns are open and it'll show an open circuit or an open link yeah and then when I close it it closes a sensor so I'm gonna leave that here so like I said every sensor is gonna have its different way of enrollment you want to make sure that one you're either looking at the guide for the sensor at the installation guide for the sensor too if you have any questions about installing them and if you're monitored with Larne guard or monitored with another company ask your company hey this sensor isn't learning in some times the sensor may need to be reset sometimes the sensor may just need a simple power on power off so removing the battery and putting the battery back on sometimes the enrollment is completely different sometimes you have to hold the button down for three seconds wait till the light blinks every sensor is completely different so you want to make sure that you're looking at the manuals and that you're asking your company questions if you have any if you guys want to get your IQ - or your IQ - + monitored with long grid please feel free to send us an email to support at alarm cocom we'd love to bring you
