The first alarm panel on the market with a built-in camera. This panel has the ability to take a picture of an intruder, or if you wanted to know who disarmed the panel every time for example, you can setup the panel to do just this. Using the alarm.com platform, the IQ Panel comes with many robust features. It boasts 6 radios (Wifi, CDMA Cellular, security, Image Sensor, Z-Wave, and Bluetooth) for device integration across many platforms.

A great first attempt with poor execution

A great first attempt with poor execution

 Pros:

  • 7″ LCD touchscreen
  • built-in camera
  • SD Card slot
  • 6 different communication radios
  • Google’s Android
  • can easily translate into different languages

Cons:

The Quolsys IQ panels has had a rocky roll-out. Initially offered to only 8 dealers, the panel has gone through at least 5 software revisions to correct several issues. All of the radios crammed into one small container is causing multiple communication issues. A very good first attempt but very poor execution.
