Most people think it's a no-brainer, when installing a security panel, it goes at the front door, right?
You are right, and that is a no-brainer... with a brainless panel, that is.
The Qolsys IQ Panel 2 should be installed where it best utilizes the features built in to the panel. Many times, we install our Qolsys panels near the center of the home, to better use the glass break detection, and spread the Z-wave signal throughout the home.
Qolsys also delivers the IQ Panel 2 with a desktop mount. This comes in handy when wall space is in short supply, or someone wants to hide the panel in plain sight; many people will think it's a digital picture frame.
A great way to use the desktop mount is in a "raised ranch" situation. Putting the panel on your kitchen countertop, the glass break detectors are optimized - catching the windows in your kitchen and living room, as well as the sliding glass doors that lead out to your deck, pool or backyard.
With the launch of the IQ Remote panel, you can now place a touchscreen panel at every entry point in your home.
