Releasing the all-new Qolsys IQ Panel 4 touchscreen alarm controller with built-in Alarm.com cellular LTE radio, Bluetooth, Front Camera, PowerG, Wi-Fi and Z-Wave Plus wireless receivers by Johnson Controls International (aka “Tyco”).
GeoArm, a pioneer in the DIY security market, has released the much anticipated Qolsys IQ Panel 4 wireless touchscreen alarm controller. This all-new control panel can be remotely controlled by the end user via the Alarm.com app, which integrates smart automation and video surveillance, for a highly customized small business and home security solution.
An elegant 7″ HD touchscreen is the focal point for the IQ Panel 4 that contains an upgraded 8-megapixel front loaded camera, with a 120° wide-angle lens, that makes use of Flex-Tilt to adjust the camera angle for peek in and alarm videos. “We are excited to be one of the first DIY alarm companies to offer the next generation of the IQ Panel in North America,” says Joe Rosenthal, President of GeoArm. Some other noteworthy IQ Panel 4 product features include; Bluetooth disarming, a built-in glass break detector, photo frame, live view/answer, and disarm photos/videos functionality.
With an improved range on every wireless radio, the IQ Panel 4 incorporates not only a Z-Wave Plus 700-Series and PowerG encrypted receiver, but also comes with either a 319.5 MHz, 345 MHz or 433 MHz legacy receiver. By having backwards legacy frequency compatibility, the user is able to salvage and re-use existing 2GIG, DSC, Honeywell Home or GE Interlogix wireless alarm sensors. “DIYers can swap out their older panel, use existing wireless sensors, and seamlessly make the upgrade to the smarter IQ4 security platform in minutes,” says Rafael Alvarez, Technology Manager of GeoArm. Much like its predecessor the IQ Panel 2 Plus, which was launched in 2018, the IQ Panel 4 has evolved into a simple do-it-yourself installation that does not require a professional.
The IQ Panel 4 is much more than just security, it is a complete smart alarm system running the fastest 8-core Qualcomm IoT processor yet. The all-in-one panel comes equipped with a fully redundant dual-path Alarm.com communicator, that is designed to send signals over Wi-Fi and/or cellular AT&T/Telus/Verizon LTE radio networks. For remote monitoring of the home or business, the IQ Panel 4 blends with the Alarm.com interactive app to offer all of its award-winning services throughout the United States and Canada.
QuadSound speakers are built into every panel for the purpose of delivering the best in audio. Better yet, user’s can also connect the panel to the IQ Base table stand subwoofer to enhance the music streaming over Bluetooth experience. By focusing on adding the most cutting-edge IoT solutions available, Qolsys and its newly manufactured IQ Panel 4 differentiates itself as the premium smart security system in 2022 and beyond.
As many of you have probably experienced or heard about, there is currently a backlog of container ships in most US Ports; this backlog is causing a delay in the regular supply chain that leads security products to customers.
So you may ask yourself, how exactly has this happened? Well, there are a few reasons why supply chains have been stressed across a plethora of industries, thus resulting in product availability delays. Over the past two decades over 90% of the world’s global trade has been shipped by sea and with 70% via shipping containers. Simply stated, shipping products by sea has been the most cost effect means for sending goods abroad.
The United States has continued to increase the outsourcing of the production of goods to foreign countries, mostly for economic reasons which has resulted in a supreme reliance on importing goods, instead of producing them at home, in today’s global commerce. As well, US companies have also increasingly relied on JIT “just-in-time” inventory systems to order their goods at the last moment, rather than stocking the items on their shelfs, which has resulted in lower inventory levels.
Together with, during the past two decades the shipping business has not been too profitable, meaning little investment has been put into building new ships. To make matter worse here in the US, our railroad companies have also been cutting costs and reducing their headcounts which has created the perfect storm for the shipping logistics crisis that we find ourselves in today.
Many industries including the security industry are also experiencing a global semiconductor chip shortage too. The sudden lockdown from the coronavirus created a ripple effect, where suppliers were unable to meet the growing demands for the silicon microchips that power today’s security system electronics. The remote work from home environment along with cloud infrastructure amplified and prioritized the sales of gaming gadgets, phones and several other electronic devices. And, the remaining stock of chips left available was insufficient to catch up to the pent-up demand in a slew of industries, including the security industry.
The good news is that we anticipate both crises to come to an end soon. Shipping routes now have alternative locations, like Florida, which are offering to carry more of the load, and semiconductor manufacturer’s, like Qualcomm, have stated that they expect the chip manufacturing shortage to begin resolving itself by the third quarter of 2022. So, if you are one of the many who are experiencing delays in receiving your parts order, you are not alone. Here at GeoArm, we are monitoring the two shipping crises described in this article on a day-to-day basis and keeping track of the out-of-stock items. So that when these parts do become available again for distribution, our customers will be first in line to receive them.
