IQ Pro: Connections for Every Business

Built-In Communicator Simplifies Options

Intrusion panels have historically required users to research, purchase, and install specific cards onto the panel’s board to enable various communication options on the device. The process of narrowing down the best communication option for a business can easily get overwhelming.

With IQ Pro, gone are the days of figuring out what kind of extras to buy to ensure a panel’s communication is running. Thanks to its built-in integrations – a first for commercial intrusion panels — businesses protected with IQ Pro can utilize dual communicators to provide cellular, Wi-Fi, CAT5 ethernet, and PowerG connectivity right out of the box without the need to purchase additional expansion cards.

IQ Pro’s built-in communicators also keep security systems connected to with simultaneous dual-path communication. While other panels have dual communicators explicitly for failsafe purposes, IQ Pro constantly makes use of both options to ensure connections are functioning at peak performance – even during normal use.

Have a business with security devices already installed? IQ Pro is scalable to work with any size business with whatever devices they need or already have. Integrating legacy devices isn’t an issue thanks to IQ Pro’s optional Dual SRF compatibility. Each IQ Pro can be purchased with PowerG functionality plus an additional legacy frequency: 319.5 MHz, 433 MHz, or 345 MHz.

For fans of PowerG, IQ Pro also comes in a PowerG-only version so owners can take advantage of the dependable next-generation range and encryption of PowerG to keep their devices connected and online.

No matter the size of the business, IQ Pro makes everyone a pro with streamlined connectivity options and an easy-to-use, step-by-step installation app.

IQ Pro: Powered by for Business

Robust, cloud-managed platform provides full control of enterprise-level systems.

IQ Pro brings a ton of modern features for commercial operations to an industry-first hybrid panel. With so many available options packed into one panel, users need a simple way to quickly understand what is happening on and around their security systems. To make the most of your devices, things like automation, scalability, user management and analytics cannot be buried in menus or questionable UI elements. The feature-rich package of IQ Pro requires a robust and unified monitoring platform, which is why IQ Pro comes with for Business integration. for Business takes system information from IQ Pro and boils it down into one easy-to-use, cloud-managed platform. With the available desktop and mobile applications, the Enterprise Dashboard enables users to effortlessly change and maintain their systems in an intuitive, streamlined way.

Video, Access Control, Intrusion Detection and More

From access control to temperature monitoring, each facet of IQ Pro and its connected devices can be controlled from the desktop and mobile applications to empower quick decision making.

By combining powerful video features and access control into one place, IQ Pro users can manage their properties with confidence. The Enterprise Dashboard displays video from cameras with 24/7 video health monitoring to help users proactively secure important assets and gather analytics relating to visitors and customer flow. If unwanted visitors come onto the property after hours, real-time alerts and event search provide a way to know exactly what’s happening without the hassle of scrubbing through hours of unrelated video footage.

For visitors who should be there, for Business gives IQ Pro several options for streamlined access privilege to employees and customers. The Enterprise Dashboard enables flexible access automation and remote lock control from anywhere, and the simplified access panel allows users to quickly add or remove access credentials from cards or mobile authenticators.

While users can always change settings by themselves from the app, by setting schedules with IQ Pro and for Business, buildings can function when they need to and save energy when they don’t. Access control, energy and temperature monitoring can all be set to run at certain times with push notifications and let building managers know when things are running smoothly and when they aren’t for peace of mind all the time.

Know, Don’t Guess

IQ Pro’s integration with for Business means managers can spend their time and energy actively looking for solutions for their businesses rather than wasting time trying to find information. The system is designed to be as streamlined as possible while giving users detailed data on the things that will help them make the best decisions for their businesses.
