IQ Panel 2
The award winning IQ Panel 2 is a 7” HD touchscreen with built-in 5MP camera and multiple wireless radios in a clean, elegant, modern user interface. The IQ Panel 2 keeps you connected to an entire ecosystem of smart devices giving you control over your entire home. Exciting new features like touchless disarming using Bluetooth and a built in glass break detector are enabled through powerful software that improves over time through regular software updates.
LTE stands for Long Term Evolution and is the standard when it comes to high speed communication for cell phones and other wireless devices. The IQ Panel 2 contains the Qualcomm snapdragon SOC (system on a chip) which includes a built-in LTE radio. This radio can be used on a variety of networks and your IQ Panel will include a sim card for the network in your area.
The LTE radio is used for all signaling in and out of the panel including arming signals, home automation, alarm events, notification, and more.
Additionally the LTE radio is leveraged in our dual path connectivity which combines LTE and Wi-Fi for intelligent redundancy, flexibility, and a high speed channel for communication and software updates to and from the cloud.
The IQ Panel 2 includes Wi-Fi and LTE radios that work together to create dual-path connectivity to the cloud. This technology is more than the traditional “fail over” technology used by rubber button keypad security systems, it’s true intelligent redundancy that allows the IQ Panel 2 to be more responsive, more connected, and more secure.
When your IQ Panel 2 communicates, it intelligently looks at both your LTE and Wi-Fi connections, analyzing them for speed and reliability. This process takes milliseconds and the IQ Panel 2 determines the most appropriate path based on the amount of data being sent and how important it is. Depending on the result, signals will be sent over Wi-Fi, LTE and in some cases both.
You may not realize it but the majority of security systems out that are not as secure as they could be. With the growing number of hackers and technology advancing rapidly, it becomes more and more likely that someone who wanted to compromise your security system could do so without much effort or expense.
Thats why we created the S-Line: encrypted sensor technology that is backwards compatible for legacy 319.5 RF systems. These encrypted sensors can protect your doors, windows, motion sensors, and more. These devices create a secure connection to the IQ Panel 2 and send signals to the panel when they have been opened, closed, experience a tamper or low battery and more.
Every IQ Panel 2 includes a bluetooth radio that allows you to pair up to five smart phones or tablets for Bluetooth Touchless Disarming. When your panel is armed in “away” mode you simply need to come within range and it will disarm automatically. It’s secure, encrypted, and individually authenticated, and you can add automation rules like “when system disarmed by authorized user, unlock the front door and turn on the porch light” making it so your home is unlocked and disarmed as you approach it and you didn’t have to do a single thing to make that happen.
Consider that for a moment: your home is secure, doors are locked, system is armed, and yet moments before you walk up your front steps, everything happens automatically for you. It’s powerful, it’s easy, it’s the way any intelligent security and smart home system should behave.
It used to be the only way you could detect breaking glass during an intrusion was with a “special glass break detector” mounted on a nearby wall or ceiling. That’s not true anymore.
The IQ Panel 2 has dual microphones and a quad core processor and software that leverages both of these as a built-in glass break detector. When the panel is armed and a window is broken within 15 feet of the IQ Panel the microphones “hear” it and trigger the alarm. It doesn’t cost anything extra, and with the powerful processor and over the air software updates we are able to improve the sensitivity and glass break recognition over time.
The IQ Panel uses an Android operating system to provide us with the features you’ve come to expect in todays technology. Camera capabilities allow us to leverage the built-in panel camera without spending hours and hours developing software. The custom text to speech allows you to customize your sensor names to personalize your experience and software updates insure your system stays fresh and new. Android also has a number of exciting features that allow us to create a robust roadmap without requiring extensive development time.
Every IQ Panel 2 includes Z-Wave Plus, a special technology that allows you to use up to 128 smart home devices like lights, locks, thermostats, garage openers, and more.
Z-Wave Plus is fast, reliable, and utilizes an intelligent, self healing network that actually gets more responsive as you add more devices!
