Qolsys, a leading security and smart home technology provider, announced support for the line of PowerG sensors to its flagship product, the IQ Panel 2. The updated IQ Panel 2 will also support multiple legacy technologies including 345 MHz, typically used by Honeywell and 2Gig, and 433 MHz used in DSC wireless systems, in addition to the Qolsys S-Line encrypted 319.5 MHz line.
“We’re taking range off the table,” said Qolsys senior vice president sales and marketing, Mike Hackett. “Never needing a repeater, never going back to fix a non-reporting sensor, is powerful. Now add proprietary takeover proof military grade 2-way encryption and it changes the way dealers approach every install and measure their business.”
There are 30-40 million residences in America with active or inactive legacy security systems. The IQ Panel 2 will allow security dealers to support legacy sensors while enabling dual installation of a powerful, reliable and long range next generation wireless sensor line, the company described.
“This best-in-class integration is a result of our close relationship with Johnson Controls Inc.” Hackett said. “PowerG has a robust wireless sensor line that has been protecting large format installs such as schools, retail establishments and businesses of all sizes. We’re excited to bring the entire PowerG product line to the residential space through the Qolsys IQ Panel 2.”
