I moved to a new place where they had the whole house wired with various sensors and an alarm panel Qolsys Iq2
I wanted to do self monitoring myself but the company doesn't want to release the installer/dealer code for the panel hence my question for you here.
Was thinking to scrap the panel and get a Hubitat box since all the sensors are Zwave
My question is (mind you i'm a noob) : I have checked the sensors and they all seem to be Honeywell(door sensors, leak sensors, window breaking etc) I checked your extensive compatibility list and sadly I did not find anything Honeywell with one exception being a thermostat.
Can I still reuse these sensors with Hubitat with some kind of generic driver or is simply a lost cause and need to toss them all and start from scratch with some compatible, newer equipment?
I have two of the ThirdReality sensors. They are a little bulky because they take AAA batteries (which is also an advantage). They work great, have been reliable. Someone from TR actually makes an appearance on the forums once and a while as well.
I know other Sonoff devices people have had issues with before, I have some plugs that are little quirky but they function. Not sure about the door sensors.
Those Honeywell/Brinks/ADT sensors can be re-used in various Honeywell alarm panels and then integrated into Hubitat with something like the the Konnected Board. Personally, I have integrated my home alarm system with similar (although wired) sensors. I also have a ton of Z-Wave and Zigbee sensors so basically two alarm systems... Anyway, there are some threads on here about how to integrate... And other sites on how to find your installer codes... Maybe if you post your exact alarm panel board, someone can help you find it...
I have been looking for this elusive installer code everywhere. Called the company , no dice
"Sir we don't keep those records here especially if it's for a closed account". which personally i believe is a bit of bs but what can I do
The panel is a Qolsys IQ2
\IQ PANEL 2 – QOLSYS
Was hooked previously with ADT-Telus Canada.
Unless there is a way to short circuit the board (somehow) and reset it my hope for finding this code is rather slim
I have 36 windows in the house..lol At 4 bux each on ebay it was cheap enough. Batteries last about a year. I'm notified if it starts raining and one of the windows is open. It lets me know which one. Also great for temperature aggregation for thermostat control
Got lucky and I managed to get a hold of the technician who installed the whole Qolsys system.
They do not do install jobs for ADT anymore but were kind enough to provide me the installer code which worked.
Right when I was about to rip it off the wall
Tested with Homebridge and everything works like a charm with the exception of a temp sensor which is not supported.
Waiting for my C8 to arrive today and will give it a shot
