Purpose-built mesh Wi-Fi integrates IQ Panel and connected devices to deliver residential and SMB networking solution
Johnson Controls, the global leader for smart, healthy, and sustainable buildings announced today that it has released a mesh Wi-Fi networking system to address the needs of the professional security industry. IQ WiFi is the latest product manufactured by Qolsys, recently acquired by Johnson Controls, designed specifically to seamlessly connect and manage streaming cameras, video doorbells, garage openers and consumer Wi-Fi devices using the IQ Panel.
“The security industry has become increasingly dependent on the end-user’s network to support the growing demand of internet connected devices.” Says Dave Pulling, Johnson Controls General Manager and former CEO of the recently acquired Qolsys Inc. “IQ WiFi elegantly connects and manages these devices to deliver better coverage and fast, reliable service”
The mesh network supports up to 8 IQ WiFi agents, and easily installs using the IQ panel’s 7” touchscreen. Dual band SSID allows partitioning of security devices from consumer Wi-Fi devices for improved security and maintenance. Manage guest networks, change passwords, view and manage connected devices from the IQ Panel’s intuitive interface.
“IQ Panel integration resolves common issues while delivering additional features and benefits for professional installers” reports Pulling. “We’re excited to bring this solution to the industry with an innovative roadmap including remote management and maintenance to further reduce truck rolls and improve the customer experience.”
IQ WiFi won an ESX Innovation award at the 2021 Electronic Security Expo’s virtual event: https://www.securitysystemsnews.com/article/esx-2021-innovation-award-winners-announced
