hi di wires this is Michael from alarm grid and today I'm gonna show you how to enroll a DSC PG 994 for outdoor image sensor that's power G outdoor image sensor to your closest IQ panel to plus security system now we have our DSC PG 9 9 for for outdoor image sensor right here and so what you're gonna have to do first you're gonna have to locate the enrollment button on the sensor so we've already removed the outer cover here the battery cover and the outer cover the tamper cover if you will so we can access the enrollment button which is right there next to the battery and you probably have trouble getting at this button with your finger with the batteries installed and you do have to have the batteries installed for auto enrolment you have to have the sensor powered on so we're gonna what we're gonna do today we have our screwdriver here a flathead screwdriver and we can just press the button write that but before we do that I do want to show you the things that we removed to access this compartment here the battery compartment first we remove this outer cover and both of these covers I'm about to show you they use a Phillips head screwdriver so make sure you have a Phillips head on hand to remove the screws so this is the outer cover that goes on top like like that over the whole thing so remove that first then once you've done that there'll be another smaller part down here that actually just covers the battery like that it also uses a Phillips head screwdriver so just under the screw release that pull it out and you'll be able to access the battery compartment and the enrollment button and the enrollment buttons what you're going to need for auto-enrollment and so I'm gonna show you how to do this on the closest IQ panel to plus system here it's just like enrolling any power D sensor really so you're gonna click the small gray bar at the top you can choose settings advanced settings you're gonna enter your installer code or your dealer code we're gonna use our installer code today and that's one one one one and keep mine that's the default code if you've changed it yours might be different but we recommend keeping yours at the default and then we're gonna choose installation your shoe's devices we're gonna do security sensors we're gonna go to auto learn sensor and now this is the IQ panel 2 plus system his in an auto enrollment mode apparently it detected a different sensor there that's not our power GPG 99 for 4 image sensor so we're gonna click cancel and we're gonna hope that doesn't happen again and we're gonna take our screwdriver here and we're gonna press the enrollment button and what we're gonna do I haven't pressed it yet you're gonna hold it down until the orange LED light is solid and I'll try to do my best to show that on camera here hopefully it gets in the image here but we're gonna just go ahead and hold that down and now it's solid orange and you can see that it detected the sensor and that is the correct serial number we checked earlier and you can see it says autolearn power G sensor that's a good way to know that it detected a the PG 9 944 because if it was a different sensor like you saw before it wouldn't say power G sensor and this is a power G sensor so we're gonna choose ok and now this is where we'd configure the settings so I'm going to set this down and I'm just gonna give you a brief overview of the settings here I won't go too in depth we have the sensor DL ID that's basically the serial number for the sensor this is considering a motion sensor even though it is an image sensor it basically operates as a motion detection sensor the difference is that this can produce images when your system goes into alarm so motion is fine here for sensitivity you have options for low medium and high to prevent false alarms we usually recommend either a medium or a low sensitivity if you're worried about pet immunity this this PG 9 944 offers pet immunity for small animals weighing up to 40 pounds if you have a dog or a cat moving around your backyard regularly you might want to set it to low just to prevent any false alarms on your system if you're in a very secure environment maybe it's so warehouse or something where nothing should be moving around then then maybe you would set it to high sensitivity but we'll go ahead and set ours to a happy medium we don't have any animals that alarmgrid unfortunately so we don't have to worry about pet immunity so we'll just keep it at medium and then sensor group is important that's actually going to determine how the system responds when the sensor is activated um so in certain arming settings the this might be automatically by it might also determine well this will also determine whether the system goes into an immediate alarm or whether you have a chance to disarm the system before an alarm occurs so we'll keep ours at the default away instant motion that one means that if our systems armed away and this sensor is activated the systems going to go into an immediate alarm now if it's armed stay as in someone's supposedly in the building or someone's on the premises I guess because this is an outdoor image sensor then it will automatically be bypassed this sensor will only be active when your systems in an armed away mode and once it activates it's going to trigger an immediate alarm on your system and the the device will produce an image remember it produces images during alarm events only so we'll keep our is 17 away instant motion high-traffic shutdown you can just leave that at the default that that basically prevents the sensor from activating repeatedly it will shut down for two minutes to conserve battery life that's a good thing so you can just keep that at the default you can set whatever sensor name you want we'll just keep ours at motion detector but you can see you can do a custom description or some other default pre-configured ones use whatever works for you we'll just keep ours at the default and we won't enable a chime but there are chimes here I'll show some of them you know there's doorbell and the there's sonar which sounds like a nice spacey theme something but we'll set ours to none we don't want to try activating when this sensor activates and voice prompts that that will actually have the panel speak out the name of the sensor whatever you set in the sensor name so you can set that if you need to and source you can just leave that alone it's a power G sensor so it has the correct source and we'll just go ahead and add new and now we have the sensor added successfully it's setup with the IQ panel two plus system and we'll just go back to home and and so we want our Mar system right now but what we're good to go we have our sense you're enrolled with our Qualis IQ panel two plus system now a couple things I do want to remind you about when you go to set up your PG 994 for image sensor first of all if you want to use this as an image sensor like actually have it take photo you're gonna need to have your panel monitored with service for alarm comm it's it's gonna need to be connected with the alarm comm servers and that that's the only way you can have this operate as a camera because it is for use with alarm comm so that's gonna require two things you're gonna have to have your alarm monitoring company enable the image sensor feature on alarm comm this will require adding an add-on to your account alarm grid customers get this add-on at no additional charge so just ask if your alarm monitored customer just email us at support and alarm real calm and we'll be happy to set it up for you if you're monitored by a different company you're gonna have to talk to your monitoring provider to enable the feature and the other thing you're gonna have to do you're gonna have to enable the automation rule within the alarm comm customer website now this isn't done by your monitoring committee this is done by you on the alarm con website so open up a web browser log into alarm comm you're gonna go to the automation section and then you're gonna make sure that the rule is enabled and once you have it enabled by your monitoring company and you've enabled it on your customer end then it will produce images whenever your system goes into alarm you can check the images you can check them locally at the I key panel to which we have some already taken I'm not gonna show you them here but we do have some from a previous enrollment of this PG 9 9 4 4 but it really comes in handy is that it sends ten images to the panel but then the first of those images is forwarded to alarm comm and you can view that image from the alarm comm website or the alarm comm mobile app so if you suddenly see that there is an alarm on your system you can pull out your phone you can go into alarm comm and you can see the first image that was taken and that's a great way to confirm that an alarm is legit that it's it's there's a serious situation at home and you need to contact help you can see if there's potentially an intruder in your home or if your home is on fire and that can be very useful for knowing whether or not an alarm is serious or if something just fell it was just a false alarm so that's why an image sensor can really come in handy and also keep in mind you don't need to have a video monitoring plan to use one you can use these on any alarm comm account that is set up for monitoring and automation as long as the feature is applied your account which we are happy to apply to your account so this is a great alternative if you don't want to pay a little bit extra for video surveillance with full motion alarm calm security cameras so that's how an a sensor like the PG 9 944 can really come in handy and if you don't need one for outdoors we also have an indoor model available the DSC PG 9 9 3 4 P and this one's for indoor use only so if you're just looking for a sensors to put in your home or your office this one's great but if you want one that can be used outdoors then the PG 9 9 4 4 is for you you just need a system that supports power G sensors such as the Aquila sis IQ panel 2
