Just moved and sold my old Qolsys IQ Panel 2 based system along with the house.
New house has system already installed - Honeywell Vista 20P panel with 6150 Keypad
I’d like to be able to use Surety/Alarm.com as I had previously for security plus automation.
What's the simplest way to integrate the 8 wired ZONES (many more actual wired sensors) of the Vista 20P with a Qolsys IQ Panel 2+ ?
I'll want to go with the 2+ to get the PowerG card (for future-proofing) but does it matter which daughter card option I choose ?
I think I realize I either need to get an SEM or a The IQ Hardwire 8/16 - is that correct thinking?
If I have more than 8 actual sensors (more than 16 actually) do I need to get multiple IQ Hardwires or do the 'Zones'handle more than one sensor ?
Is it possible to integrate an existing Honeywell Lyric Round thermostat with the IQ 2+ and Alarm.com ?
Is it possible to integrate an existing Ring doorbell with the IQ 2+ and Alarm.com ?
I think that’s it for now but I’m sure I’ll have follow up questions depending on your recommendations.
