Qolsys released yet again another small patch to alleviate some lingering issues. While this update does not offer any new and exciting features / integrations, it does help those using the 16 zone hardwired translators and improves on some communications with alarm.com
The official patch notes are as follows:
- Improved filtering for low battery alerts when using an IQ 16z Hardwired translator.
- Updates to broadband communication between the panel and Alarm.com.
- Fix for reporting carrier stats to the back end for enhanced troubleshooting
- Fixes for intermittent issues with image uploads
How to update your Qolsys IQPanel 2+
Step 1: Advanced Settings
Go to your MAIN panel (should be the only one unless you have a secondary Keypad). You’re going to want to swipe down from the middle top bring up the advanced settings menu.
Once there you’re going to want to click ADVANCED SETTINGS then enter the installers code.
Step 2: Upgrade Software
Once your installer code has been successfully been accepted you will be greeted with a similar layout with the one below. You’re going to want to click and open the upgrade software setting on your IQ PAnel2+
Step 3(a) and (b): Normal and Patch Tag installation
A) – Under normal circumstances you should be able to update your panel via WIFI using the Upgrade Using Network field. Clicking this field will communicate with the update servers and verify if there is a newer firmware version.
b) If the event you want to force a specific update, there is Patch tag. Patch tag will tell the server you want a specific update to your panel and will bypass normal updating procedures. If your panel is not giving you the option to update to 2.5.2 you can do so by entering Iqpanel2.5.2 – This is case sensitive.
