hadia wires I'm George from alarm grid today we're gonna be going over how to connect a z-wave door lock to an IQ 2 controller so the IQ 2 I have right here and I have my z-wave Kwikset door lock accidentally armed it basically what a z-wave device is is a home automation device such as a light lock door thermostat today we're actually working with just the door lock it is quick set there was a lot of other brands out there Schlage Yale quick set is the one we like to work with it's easily compatible causes less problems so that's usually the one we recommend going with and I'm just gonna go in and get right into showing you guys the quickest easiest way to learn in the z-wave door lock to your system so first thing you want to do you can either press I like to prep I like to slide down from the top you slide down you go to settings you then go to advanced settings it's gonna ask you for a dealer code or the installer code mine is defaulted so I'm either going to use 1 1 1 1 or 2 2 2 2 so I'm just gonna use 1 1 1 1 I believe that's the installer code I'm then going to go to installation devices and then z-wave devices once you're in that screen you now have a whole lot of different options the first thing you're going to want to do even if you bought a brand new z-wave lock you first need to make sure that you exclude it or you cleared the device yeah so to do that you're gonna press clear the device button once you do that it's gonna go into like an exclusion mode so you once it's in the what's this once it's in that exclusion mode make sure you take a look at your manual because each lock is different this one's actually pretty easy I'm just gonna go ahead and take the cover off and my function button for my z-wave door lock is actually the 8 alpha as an alpha button now it's different for a lot of different door locks sometimes you guys have a little green button sometimes they're stuff that you guys have to do through the actual touch pad so make sure you guys read your manual and find out what the function button is for your z-wave drawer lock mine again it's just the Alpha by and so for me it's going to be easy today so I'm gonna go ahead and hit clear device as you see it says press to learn button to clear a device I'm gonna hit the a and then on Pat on the actual iq2 it'll say device is cleared from the network successfully all right what we're doing there is even though you guys did buy and you remember these locks are factory tested sometimes they forget you know they're not they don't get excluded from everything that they've that they've tested them on so basically clearing the device wipes out any controller and easy waived any z-wave hub that this lock is tied in to so you always want to make sure you exclude whatever z-wave device you're learning into your system first so now that it's excluded I'm all good to include it now or to add the device so I'm gonna hit the top left add device I'm done I'm gonna hit include it's gonna stay saying searching for the vise getting device type and then message it'll say the press to learn or include button to add the device so I press the a button it says discovered an ID node right so discovered my door lock it's currently ID is set to 3 you can the type is set to door lock but the name you can actually change it custom name I'm gonna leave it as front door but you guys can name it whatever you want so if you guys have it as a back door front door office door whatever you guys want to name it as you guys can go ahead and hit custom name and do that I'm just gonna leave it as front door then I'm gonna hit add and now my device has been added successfully you can go ahead and include another one if you guys are still there I'm just gonna go ahead and hit the little home button right here at the bottom takes me to my home screen now that I have it added it should come up in my z-wave screen here see right now it says my front door is locked if you take a look the lock is out meaning that the it's locked now if I simply tap on the screen or if I just do unlock also if you guys have more than one lock you guys can easily do unlock all and it'll open up all the doors or you can do alcohol and it'll lock all the doors if you guys want to do one specifically mine's right now set the front door I'll go ahead and tap on that button and you should see this starts going in to unlock and obviously the command went through but it just takes a couple of seconds for the actual panel to be refreshed on the status of the lock same thing if you're doing it through the app if you guys learn in the z-wave lock to your panel and you guys have automation enabled on your alarm calm at all the z-wave devices will show up on the app as well and you can actually control them from your phone if you don't want to control it from the panel but again that does require some level of monitoring so this was just a quick video on how to add a
