Wi-Fi test - Checks the Qolsys IQ Panel’s connection to your network (router).
- To perform a Wi-Fi test, press the Run button.
- A successful test will result in a “pass” and indicates the date and time of the test along with connection speed.
Note: If test fails, please check your Wi-Fi settings.
Sensor test - Shows the actual dBm signal strength of each sensor and graphs sensor events against the ambient noise floor of the environment.
- The advanced sensor test shows a summary of each sensor paired to the panel along with the average dBm level, the last event’s dBm level and how many packets were received from the sensor.
Select the graph icon to the right of each sensor to view an individual sensor’s graphed signal strength in real time.
- The green dots represent each state change or supervisory signal transmitted from a sensor to the panel.
- The yellow line represents a dBm level where signal strength is poor and potential RF failures could occur. This line dynamically adjusts to 12 dBm above the ambient RF noise floor in the environment.
- The red line represents a dBm level where signal strength is critical and RF failures are likely. This line dynamically adjusts to 6 dBm above the ambient RF noise floor in the environment.
Z-Wave tests - Tests the connection between the panel and enrolled Z-Wave devices to ensure they are communicating properly.
- To perform a Z-Wave Test, press the Run button. A successful test will result in a “pass” and indicates the date and time of the test.
Note: If a test fails, relocate the device, change batteries and/or rediscover the network.
Cellular test - Tests the panel’s connection to the cellular network and monitoring station.
- To begin the test press Start and watch for the results on the screen.
Panel test - Runs through a complete test of the panel’s running processes.
- Select Run to test one process at a time or Run All to test all processes.
Note: Running all tests at once will sound the siren.
NOTE: Life Safety detectors have an expiry date
Most smoke detectors expire 10 years after the manufacturing date, and most carbon monoxide detectors expire after 6 years. Ensure all of your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are up to date as they may not function correctly once expired. To check your detectors, look for an expiry date listed on the back or side of the device.
When you need to replace a detector, contact Bell Smart Home to learn about your options. If you choose, or have already chosen, to purchase a replacement smoke or carbon monoxide detector from another provider, please be aware that the device will not be monitored as part of your Bell Smart Home service.
