hey diyers george here from alarm grid today i'm going to be showing you guys how to enter programming on a partitioned iq panel 2 plus first thing i want to go over is what is an actual partition for those of you who are new to this a partition is a sectioned off part of your alarm system that is individually controlled or separately controlled from the rest of the alarm system so for example let's say i have a shed in my backyard i have a detached garage and i have a work office in my house and i want each of the sensors in those areas to be on their own separate partition that when you set those sensors on their own partition and you can actually create user calls and you can get very in-depth with it but basically you can make those sections um separate from the rest of the house if that's something you guys wanted to do and uh today i'm going to be showing you guys how to get into programming to enable partitions what changes on the panel when you enable partitions and some things to look out for so the very first thing you have to know in order to get into programming if you're on a partition iq panel two plus you need to have either your installer code or your dealer code now these two codes are important for adding in sensors um enabling and disabling certain features on the system that have to do with chime supervision just pretty much everything that the system can do those settings you will pretty much find in installer code settings and in the dealer code settings the installer and dealer codes they when you have the panel brand new they're defaulted the installer code is one one one one and the dealer code is two two two two if you have the system you're trying these codes and it's not working either you may have changed them and just may have forgotten about it or your actual alarm company maybe have changed them as well um it all depends on who you use us at alarm grid we usually like to leave these codes defaulted just because in case anything ever needs to be changed we can help you guys out very easily and um in case you forget it we know the default code so just make sure you have your installer and dealer codes they're very important for you guys to have whenever you're looking to add in your own devices so right now i'm actually in my installer partition but basically what's gonna happen when you guys do set up partitions you're actually gonna see here it says partition one i can scroll up partition two i can scroll up partition three and partition four um i wanna show you guys real fast how to enable partitions before i get into some specific details on this so you need to know your installer code um and you're going to hit the little button at the top of the panel you're going to go to settings and when you go to advanced settings mine's not going to do it because i'm already in the installer partition but if you guys don't have partitions enabled it is going to ask you for your installer code or dealer code that's where you're going to enter in the 1 1 1 1 or the 2 2 2 2 or if none of those work you need to get the code from your company all right so we've entered in the code it brings us to this screen here um this is actually our installer menu our dealer menu has like maybe two other options at the bottom there not to worry we really just need to look at installation which is going to be on the top left you after you go to installation you're going to go to installer settings here's where you're going to enable partitions you're going to scroll down it's towards the bottom here i don't want to miss it there you go partitions if you don't have partitions enabled you're going to have a blank box my partitions are enabled so um let's say i turned it off real quick i turned off real quick if you're enabling it you're going to get a little box yours will probably say are you sure you want to enable partitions you you will say yes i'm just going to hit cancel because i don't want to mess up the partitioning that i created and then from there um it'll bring you out to the main screen now something important about partitions is if you guys are adding in sensors and there's four partitions by the way um that the iq panel has and the iq panel has to be on firmware version 2.3.0 i believe or higher but basically if you guys don't have any sensors in any partitions the partitions will not appear i actually went in and added in the sensor for each partition so you guys can see all four of them but if you guys don't have sensors added in under any other partitions they will not appear so if all your sensors are under partition one you will not have the option to scroll down to partition two partition 3 or partition 4. all right so you have to have a sensor if you want to control the partitions um one other thing that's going to change when your screen goes dark let me show you an example lock screen when your screen goes dark right let's say there's a timeout after a couple of seconds your screen goes black the way that it changes now is you would have to tap on the screen to bring up a pad and on the pad it's going to ask you to enter in your code this is where if you're looking to get into programming on a partitioned iq panel 2 plus here's where you would enter in your installer or your dealer code i can do one one one one and it'll say good morning installer and then from there it'll take me to my installer screen and again it's only gonna ask you for that code upon wake up only if you have partitions if you don't have partitions you do not have to worry about that keypad uh showing up let me show you guys again real quick um so since i'm in installer menu already i can just go to settings and advanced settings it's not going to ask me for a code because i already entered in my code to unlock the panel but let's say let me go back to the main screen here let's say i lock the panel screen and i'm gonna switch to partition number number two right so i made that code one two three two that's the code i created for partition two good morning diy-ers and you'll see here now it says i'm in partition two i don't have the option to scroll up or down um and i also am not going to have the option if i go to settings if i go to advanced settings it's not going to give me the installer options anymore that old is only given to installer or dealer and that's when you unlock the panel with either of those codes all right so again the way that you enter the programming menu in a partition iq panel two plus is one first you have to have your installer or your dealer code and then two whenever it asks you to enter in the code you just gotta enter in the one one one one or the two two two two or whatever your company has changed it to if you guys have any other questions please feel free to send us an email to support alarmgrid.com if you found the video helpful make sure you hit like underneath subscribe
