Using a DSC PowerG Keypad With the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus

Hi Robert, Yes we do sell the power supply for this keypad:
Do you guys sell a power supply for this keypad?



hi do IRAs over from alarm grid and today we're going to talk about using a DSC wireless keypad with your IQ to panel plus now for this keypad to work with your system your IQ to panel will need to support power G devices let's take a look at the keypad and the box here's the box for the keypad fairly basic looks nice and here's the key pad itself it's a fairly generic ESC keypad it's got the push buttons on the bottom and a two line LCD on the top now there likely isn't going to be a situation where you have an IQ to panel installed and you're going out to buy esc products the reason being is that you're not going to get all of your features on this keypad with the panel that you would from like an IQ remote for example that'll show you all of the different statuses and allow you to do different things with the system all this keypads going to do is show you the arming status of the system the situation that this would happen or you have a DSC keypad with an IQ tube panel is that you had a DSC system installed previously you went to upgrade to an IQ to panel and you were trying to figure out which devices were compatible with the system one nice thing about this keypad with the IQ 2 is that it is a power G device so you are gonna get that super far range of a operability with it and the system and as it's kind of a basic keypad this could make sense if you have a utility room or a shack somewhere that's far away from your system and you just want to put in something that's functional and works for for what you're looking to do but again definitely check out the offerings that Qualis has as far as keypads go first because you're gonna have a better experience with those keypads then you would with this one for the simple reason that they have they're made to work with the system and you're gonna get more out of them but for a keypad that just arms and disarms the system and shows a system status this does work great now let's go into how to enroll it to the panel very simple on the keypad itself you'll see that it says hold one and star to enroll the keypad it's as easy as that we just have to go into the sensor programming on our system enable the learn mode and then we'll be able to learn in the keypad so we slide on from the top do settings advanced settings - - - - installation devices security sensors and then auto learn sensor so now the systems in learn mode so on the keypad I'm just gonna press and hold one end star there we go that just learned it I'm gonna click OK to confirm and here's where you can set up the keypad the sensor group this is an important one fixed intrusion mobile intrusion and fixed silent this is telling the system if the keypad is going to have a silent police panic and audible police panic and if it's going to be supervised or not on the side where it says sensor name we can name the keypad we can change the chime type and you're going to want to make sure that the source is power G as this is a power G keypad I'm going to click add new there you go we have successfully added our keypad to the system I go back to the home menu on our panel I should be able to arm the system using the keypad so on our keypad it shows system is ready to arm I should be able to arm it using the keypad when the press and hold stay and we heard the system confirm that it said the PIN pad has arm stay and on the keypad we see that it does say system armed in stay mode so our keypad was successfully programmed to the panel if you do have any questions about adding a DSC keypad to your IQ - yeah cube - panel or a lot of questions in general feel free to give us a call at eight at eight eight one eight seven seven two eight send us an email to support at alarm bread comm or add our website you enjoy the video feel free to subscribe you want to be notified when we post future videos hit the notification button below and we'll send you an update when we do so thanks for watching and have a great day
