Here we will discuss all the new features of this new security panel.
Dual Path Connectivity:
In the security industry, many systems are built to connect to the network through landlines or 2G-3G cellular technologies. These technologies are very slow in terms of network connectivity, but those days are gone, the new IQ 2 security panel comes with the capability of a dual path connection, allowing you to connect with LTE cellular networks, and Wi-Fi simultaneously. These network connections are used to remotely arm and disarm, auto updates and many other essential features, so a reliable and fast connection makes the panel and your home more secure.
When leaving home for work or returning home, you have no need to go to the panel and arm or disarm the security system. IQ 2 security panel comes with a mobile application to connect to the panel through a dedicated Bluetooth radio frequency to arm or disarm the security system via your mobile device. And this application is not limited to device numbers, every family member can control the security system via smartphone as the panel allows up to 5 devices to connect to the Bluetooth radio frequency for controlling the security panel remotely.
The hijacking of the security system is always done by hacking the sensors making the sensors behave incorrectly and not sending the sensor data to the security system. This results in the security system not responding to the abnormal activity in your home. Keeping that issue in mind the IQ2 security panel comes with S-Line encrypted sensors, which provides a very secure connection for every door and window of each room of your home making the security system more secure in terms of hacking.
There are many people coming in and going out of the home on daily basis aside from family members. To keep an eye on who is coming and going out of the home every IQ 2 security panel has a built-in HD 5 Mega-Pixel camera which captures the picture of every person who is manually arming or disarming the system and these photos are directly sent to your connected smartphone device, so that you can keep an eye on everyone who is coming in and going out of the home.
There are so many smart devices to control home appliances in every home. These smart devices must all be connected to and controlled by the security panel to make each and every device secure. These types of devices include smart lights, locks, refrigerators, music players, thermostats, air-conditioners, garage openers and many more. With increasing number of these devices, a special technology called Z-Wave Plus is used in the new IQ2 security panel. It also allows it so that you can connect up to 128 different devices to your security panel allowing you to control them all from your smart phone.
Glass Break Detection:
The new IQ 2 security panel comes with dual microphones and a QUALCOMM Quadcore processor built-in, the microphones on the panel are always working to detect the breaking of glass and if it happens the alarm sounds and pane notifies you of the situation via text, email or phone call.
These are just a few of the reasons why the IQ2 security panel is our favorite.
