hi-dee-hi virus this is Michael from alarm grid and today I'm going to show you how to adjust the z-wave device limits on your closest IQ panel - or IQ panel - plus security system now if you didn't know that the Qualis IQ panel - plus has z-wave device limits well it does there is actually limit to the number of z-wave devices that you can pair with the network now I want to make a few things clear there's also a z-wave device limit for alarm comm which is a little bit lower I believe that total is 122 or 128 will confirm in the description it's one of those but it's a little bit lower for the number that can get pushed over to alarm calm but the IQ panel 2 + or IQ panel 2 has its own zi advice limit which is a little bit larger I'll break down the numbers in a second but this is basically the limit of the number of z-wave devices that can be added to the system for local panel control now as I just said alarm.com has its own z-wave device limits so there will be a smaller limit that will only get pushed over to alarm.com I think it's 122 for that but once you reach that limit then any devices you add from there will only be available for local control so keep that in mind because we know most of you are going to be using this alarm comm for remote automation control but just we're gonna focus on local control for most of this video so breaking down the z-wave device limits it's split into different categories of z-wave device types and the limits are pretty generous you probably won't run into issues running out of device limits unless you're really a large business or a large home but break down the numbers you can have a maximum of 10 z-wave thermostats you have a maximum of 15 z-wave smart sockets you can have a maximum of 20 z-wave door locks a maximum of 80 z-wave lights maximum of 6 z-wave garage door controllers and then a maximum of 21 other z-wave devices so miscellaneous is eBay advices just that would be things like water valves and such and the total for z-wave device ziwei devices you add up all those numbers you get 152 so if you max out the thermostats the smart sockets the door locks the lights garage doors and the other z-wave devices you will reach the maximum local limit of 152 z-wave devices and after that you won't be able to add any more seaweed vices now what I mentioned earlier was we're the maximum limits within the panel and what you actually can do is you can go into installer programming and you can increase or decrease the z-wave device limits there's not really any reason not to set them to the maximum limit so you may as well just go in and do this I believe they're set to with a maximum by default so you don't really have to go in and change anything but if maybe an installer went in and decrease the z-wave device limits and you had to go back and change them I just want to see what the menu looks like that's what we're gonna show you here today so here's how you would adjust the z-wave device limits on your closest IQ panel to plus so we're at our system here we're gonna press the small gray bar at the top and we choose settings we're gonna choose advanced settings and we're gonna enter in our installer code which is four ones and then we're gonna choose installation we're cheese devices we're gonna choose z-wave devices and then we're gonna go to z-wave settings and you can see here our just have it I'm doing set to the maximum limit right right away we're they're actually on the lowest limit I believe thermostats is set to three so if we wanted to change it we would have to go and increase it to 10 you just click on the little arrow that this side there and make sure to set it to 10 and then you can click the set button you just scroll to set well we'll go ahead and do this for for a few of them we won't do it for all of them the lights that they do a lot I believe that's 80 lights you can have so we're gonna be scrolling here just scrolling along here we go and then we're at 80 don't go to zero that you'll have a bad time you do that so it's set at 8080 and we can just press set and that's how you would go about doing it you can do it for door locks other z-wave devices and garage doors and there are other z-wave settings in here but we're just focusing on these here so we'll leave the rest those alone you get the idea of how to adjust them and once you set it it's good to go the changes have been saved so you can return to the main menu by pressing the home button and any changes you made to the z-wave device limits have been set they've been saved updated and you'll be able to add the corresponding limit based on what you set in that setting field so that's how you adjust the z-wave device limits on the Koala sis i q-- panel - plus security system if you found this video helpful make sure to give it a thumbs up below to like the video we always appreciate that and remember to subscribe to our channel to get updates on future videos and if you have any questions about z-wave devices or the closest IQ panel to plus or you're interested in monitoring service send us an email at support at alarm grid comm and we'll be happy to help you out thanks have a great day
