Qolsys IQ Panel - Programming A Remote Keyfob

Make sure your system is disarmed during this process. Start by selecting “Settings”


Enter your “Installer Code”, in this case I’m going to use the default which is “1111”


Select “Installation"


Select “Security Sensors”


Select “Auto Learn Sensor”


At this point, you’ll need to active the keyfob. To do this, take your keyfob  and hold down the “Lock” and “Unlock” buttons at the same time.

Once this is done, the IQ Panel will beep and ask if you want to add the device to your sensor list. Select “OK”


Here you will need to program the proper information for this device.

  • Sensor DL ID: 
  • Sensor Type: Select “Keyfob”
  • Sensor Name: Select "Keyfob" or create a "Custom Description"
  • Chime Type: This allows you to apply a specific sound to your device when it’s used.
  • Sensor Group: This is used to change the behavior of the device. For this device, leave the Sensor Group alone.
  • Voice Prompts: This allows you turn on or off the vocal chime. 


When ready, select “Add New”


You’re done!

  • I'd like to request that the functionality of opening a zwave garage door opener be added as the star key. Thank you!

  • Casey, 

    Thank you for the recommendation. We will pass that request along to the manufacturer for their consideration. 

    Have a great day!
