IQ Mini Door/Window Sensor, IQ Doorbell and IQ Lightbulb

Qolsys, provider of best-in-class residential security and smarthome solutions, announced today the addition of three new devices: the IQ Mini Door Window sensor, the IQ Doorbell and the IQ Lightbulb boosting the IQ Panel’s connected home product line up.  Qolsys continues to innovate in every room while improving the connected home experience for dealers and end users.


“Each of these devices simplifies the installation process and increases overall performance and functionality,” said Qolsys SVP of Sales and Marketing Mike Hackett.  “They are elegantly designed, look great in the home and enhance the overall connected smarthome experience.”



The new IQ Mini DW is a wireless door window sensor featuring a new antenna and circuit board design that improves signal range and reduces interference on most surfaces, an industry leading 10-year battery life, and a powerful rare-earth magnet for impressive gap forgiveness.


The slim form factor available in white and brown, seamlessly self-pairs with the IQ Panel using an improved auto-learn process in the panel’s software, making installation faster and easier than ever, including self installations.  It includes a die cut adhesive for easy placement.


The IQ Mini DW is available now at Qolsys authorized distribution locations.


“We absolutely love it.” Says DEALER, TITLE of COMPANY LIVEWATCH.  “We can mail this direct, our customers can pair and install themselves.  We already retired our trucks!”


IQ Doorbell

The IQ Doorbell wires directly to a home’s existing indoor chime unit, turning any doorbell into a “smart” doorbell.  The simple, elegant and cost-effective approach eliminates the need to retrofit the outdoor button while maintaining the existing pre-wired bell and chime.


Instantly making your home smarter, the IQ Doorbell can turn on your porch light or trigger exterior cameras to start recording.  Recorded video clips can be sent directly to your mobile device via text or email, so you know who rang the bell.


The small form factor easily installs with a standard screw driver, boasts a 10-year battery life and supports two pre-wired bells.


“We asked for a solution to the smart doorbell six months ago and the Qolsys solution delivers with style.”  Says NAME, TITLE of DEALER.  “Our customers love it and its easily one of our best-selling smarthome devices.”


The IQ Doorbell is now available at Qolsys authorized distribution locations.


IQ Lightbulb

The IQ Lightbulb is an attractive, dimmable LED light bulb that connects to the IQ Panel using Z-Wave.  Drawing only nine watts of energy, it has a greater than 20-year life expectancy and acts as a Z-Wave repeater.  Installed into a standard lamp socket, the IQ lightbulb easily pairs to the IQ Panel giving end-users the ability to create energy saving smarthome rules like “Turn off my lights when I leave.”


Energy efficient, the IQ Lightbulb draws only 9 watts of power while giving off a bright 60 watts, and as a Z-Wave repeater it strengthens the Z-Wave mesh network, improving the speed and response time of smarthome devices throughout in the home.


The IQ Lightbulb is now available at Qolsys authorized distribution locations.


These new devices continue Qolsys’ rollout of improved equipment to meet the increased demand from its growing dealer and distributor network.  These devices easily pair with the IQ Panel creating a robust connected home solution, strengthening Qolsys growing position in the smarthome market.


Qolsys continues to demonstrate its dedication to residential security and home control by providing the most reliable and innovative platform, resulting in increased conversion, end-user satisfaction, fewer dealer truck rolls, improved customer support and decreased total cost of ownership.
