Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Sensor Programming

This guide covers some common programming choices for the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 and 2+ alarm panels.

Below is the pathway taken at the panel to access sensor programming. We recommend choosing the Auto Learn Sensor feature.

After choosing Auto Learn Sensor, the panel will begin to listen for the sensor’s signal. It is at this point that you would tamper or trip the sensor to initiate the pairing process.

For a list of Sensor Group choices, please see this guide here.
