Qolsys, a San Jose, California-based smart home security and automation technology provider, as per recent reports, has announced its UL 1610 certification for commercial burglary, thus paving way for new business opportunities for dealers that are using the IQ Panel 2 Plus.
The latest 2.3 OTA (over-the-air) software update adds additional new business-specific features, including up to four partitions, screen lock, six-digit passcodes, and additional PowerG sensors and secondary keypads support.
Furthermore, the 2.3 OTA update also enables Alarm.com for Business, an industry-leading interactive services platform that combines smart business security, access control, smart video monitoring, and energy management technologies. The commercial update ropes in application use cases ranging from huge commercial spaces to a small residential townhome, adds Mike Hackett, Qolsys senior vice president of sales and marketing.
“I’ve been using the IQ Panel 2 Plus with PowerG sensors to secure elementary schools in our region,” says, Scott McLeod, owner, Hawkeye Security of Weyburn, SK, Canada. “We originally bid our installs to take three days and are now completing most jobs in 10 hours or less, and that includes customer training. My team spends less time on ladders and more time talking about features and benefits with our customers, and we have never been more profitable.”
Robert Post, the owner of Post Alarm Systems of Arcadia, California, also lauding the IQ Panel, says, “We are proud to bring our commercial customers a best in class solution combining the Qolsys IQ Panel with PowerG sensors and the Alarm.com commercial interactive services with dedicated Post Alarm service and support.”
