I recently moved from a GE SIMON XTI to a Qolsys IQ, and while I initially like it, there is one thing I can’t seem to figure out.
Here is my situation:
When I leave the house, my wife is still home with my toddler daughter. The alarm is in STAY mode. She needs to access the garage periodically (laundry, extra fridge) so she needs to bypass the garage door…
I am aware of the quick exit, giving her 120 secs, but I’m thinking of a more permanent bypass (until re-armed). On the XTI you were able to bypass a sensor without having to disarm and re-arm the system with the bypassed sensor. Any clue if this is possible with the IQ Panel?
I’d rather try and avoid the arm/re-arm scenario as most of our iPads/iPhones/tablets are Push enabled, so besides the gongs and voice announcements from the panel itself, you’d have about 5 devices go off twice, hence about another 10 beeps.
Hope something exists or is in the works with a new firmware/software update.
