hey there diy is jared with alarm grid today we're going to be going over how you would use automatic disarming on the corsa psyche panel 2 plus if you want to go ahead and set that up you do need to go into the settings of the panel to be able to enable that option one thing you want to keep in mind is that the bluetooth disarming feature does not come pre-enabled when you receive that qos system brand new this is actually this is actually disabled for security reasons because not everybody wants to go ahead and set up the bluetooth disarming right only a certain amount of people want to go ahead and do that it is a really cool feature though it's very nice to have now this is not enabled right out of the box because as i said not everybody wants to use it some people want to go ahead and have that option of being able to disarm the system by using a code a security code to be able to gain access and make sure that the system is being disarmed by an actual authorized user now when you have the bluetooth disarming set up it's going to automatically disarm that system when your phone comes into the proximity of the qolsys panel as soon as that closest panel picks up that phone that's paired via bluetooth it's going to go ahead and disarm it you don't require any code or anything to be able to disarm that or yet to be able to disarm the system now this can potentially pose to be a security risk um if you happen to lose your phone or anything because if anybody get gets a hold of that phone and it's paired to the system via bluetooth to be able to disarm it anybody can go ahead and do that um if you walk up to the to the premise and basically it's paired and system picks it up it's going to disarm the system um you won't you won't need any code or anything for that so that's why not a lot of people want to go ahead and use it but the people that do um you know you'll just follow these steps and everything to go ahead and set that up um it is again a very cool feature to go ahead and use because you don't necessarily need a code or anything you just walk up to the system and it disarms it um but just you want to keep in mind about that um you know security risk and everything when you're setting this up so if you want to go ahead and pair your phone to be able to disarm your courses panel you're going to go ahead and follow these simple steps right here first what you want to do is place the qolsys panel in the pairing mode and then after that you're going to take out your phone depending on which device you have there are certain ways on how to put it into the pairing process but you're basically going to set up your phone so that it's in that pairing mode as well so they both can go ahead and listen to each other and you can pair the two systems so what you want to do here is tap on the small gray bar at the top tap settings you're going to go into advanced settings and you're going to enter the master code the default is one two three four now if you did change that code you wanna make sure that you're entering that code instead if you did end up changing the master code which normally is the case one two three four is not gonna work you wanna go ahead and use your code so now that you're in this menu here you want to go into device bluetooth devices and you're going to go into add phone so now it's basically you just put the system to the pairing mode as you can see over here to the right you have your little circle spinning so that means it's basically looking for the device so now you want to take out your phone and go into the bluetooth settings and put it into the pairing mode so in this video i have a galaxy s9 system or a phone so all i have to do is go into settings and then go into connections and then you should see bluetooth now when you access bluetooth it's going to automatically place the phone into the pairing mode so here it actually stopped on the parent stop looking for the devices so we're just going to hit that little refresh button here now they're both searching now sometimes it could take a little bit for the devices to see each other so just be a little bit patient when you're setting this up but as soon as you see this come up then or as soon as you see the device that you're trying to pair come up then all you have to do is just tap on that essentially in this uh once you see this we're just going to go ahead and tap on it now it's going to go into the actual pairing process trying to connect to my phone so i accidentally closed out the window here on my phone but basically when you do that you're going to have this pairing code pull up right and on the phone you're going to see the pairing code pull up as well you want to make sure that these are matching if you if they're not matching then more than likely they might be the wrong device that you're trying to pair it to so you want to make sure that everything is correct here so basically we're going to repair this because i want you guys to see the pairing code pop up so we're going to tap on it that's in the pairing process my phone is also in the pairing process as well and bam right there you have the bluetooth pairing request come up so as you can see uh you have the code 641375 on my phone it's also 641375 so we're just going to tap on pair on the panel and then on the phone then you're going to go ahead and press ok depending on the system that you or the phone that you have the pairing process is going to be a little bit different you might just have an option that says pair you might have an option that says okay mine was just okay so once it does successfully pair you're going to get this to or this window is going to come up so and then on the phone depending on how you want to set up the bluetooth settings if you want to enable the contacts you can if you want to it's not really going to do much but i'm just going to deny it now on the main panel you always want like if you want this device to always disarm the system you want to make sure this is set for allow disarming if you didn't want the device to disarm the system then you go ahead and choose disable disarming so we're going to leave it on allow i'm going to press save all right so once you have successfully paired the uh your phone to the coolest panel it's going to take you to this menu so at this point just tap on or actually you want to make sure that the phone is paired so right here you can see paired devices and then you see my galaxy s9 if you have like an iphone if you have a different galaxy then you're going to see that pop up here you just want to make sure that's that's there if you don't you want to go ahead and try the repairing process so once it's confirmed you hit the back arrow at the bottom and then we're going to go over to settings over here on the right and this is basically you know just very simple settings you want to you want to enable and everything for the bluetooth as you can see bluetooth is enabled if this was unchecked then it's not enabled i accidentally just tapped on it so it's unpairing right now but if you want to go ahead and enable it you just tap on the check box and it's going to turn that on you have bluetooth disarm so basically if you want the system or the phone to be able to disarm the system then you want to make sure that checkbox is checked and then lastly we have bluetooth disarm timeout so the disarm timeout um essentially this is like the timer that's setting up for your phone right whenever you put whenever you arm the system there's a certain time frame that you have before the phone can go ahead and disarm the system again so if you have the if you had this set to absolutely let's say one minute right once you're on the system you have about a minute to get out of the get out of the area or get away from the proximity of the system before the before the phone is able to disarm the system again um so normally you want to set it to about five minutes you have 10 minutes by default it's set on 10 minutes you can set it to 20 or 30 minutes we're going to keep it at 10 minutes so basically if i were to arm the system i've about 10 minutes to be able to leave this area before my phone disarms the system again you don't want it to disarm the system automatically right after you arm the system because it basically just renders it useless at that point right you want to make sure your system is harming so once that's confirmed that is basically it for the bluetooth settings all you have to do at this point just tap on the house button to take you back to the main screen okay so let's test it system is now disarmed by galaxy s9 so i just got back and you can see that it dis that it did um disarm the system when i came back into the building uh my phone was paired to it via the bluetooth so basically as you can see as soon as it came to the proximity of the equal psychic panel 2 plus it did go ahead and disarm it and that is how you use the automatic bluetooth disarming on the qual slickey paint on two plus if you have any further questions about the quality psyche panel two plus
