I have a bunch of wireless motion sensors, smoke detectors, CO detectors, wired glass break, wired motion sensors that I wanted to transfer.to the new panel. Can I use my current smoke detectors with the new panel?
Depends on the make/model of sensor, are the 319.5MHz sensors? You can check what you have against this guide here. If using the IQP4001, the 319.5 and PowerG sections are relevant.
Pay attention to the life safety devices, they dont last forever, depending on their use by date, they may need to be replaced.
Okay, it looks like my switch isn’t on there. It’s the GE 14294. Maybe it goes under a different number now because it looks like the picture in the chart.
If its just an on/off Z-Wave switch, it may still work, it just hasn’t been tested compatible. Local testing would be needed.
I have the Hardwire Translator 16 but mine isn’t the small form factor. Will mine still work with the panel?
The IQ Panel 4 IQP4001 is compatible with the IQ Hardwire 16-S QS7131-840
Also, with my Qolsys QS-9004-VZ I needed to run a wire from the Translator to the panel for the buzzer. Do I still need to do that if I wanted to use the wired siren? Is the activation of the wired siren from the Panel 4 handled wirelessly, now?
There are no terminal blocks in the IQ Panel 4, no wires could run from the hardwire to the IQ Panel 4.
In this case, you would either need to replace the 16-S with the Hardwire 16F or replace the Hardwired Siren with a wireless one. Either the IQ Siren (Z-Wave) or the PowerG Indoor Siren PG9901 are compatible indoor siren options. Replacing the siren is likely to be the better option.
