Adding in sensors can make your smart home—well, even smarter. Qolsys knows this, so the company has debuted a pair of new sensors to expand its portfolio of connected sensors and smart devices.
The Qolsys IQ Temp can alert homeowners to severe temperature changes, as well as extreme high and extreme low temperatures. Those warnings could save you from costly damage caused by freezing pipes, high energy bills, or just having an uncomfortable house.
Once you set desired temperatures, the IQ Temp will monitor for anything out of the norm. If something strange is detected, the IQ Temp can deliver notifications via text messages or on-screen alerts right on the IQ Panel. Also worth noting is that the IQ Temp has a new antenna design that boasts a better performance on a variety of surfaces. It also has a battery life that ranges from 8 to 10 years.
The second new sensor is the IQ Siren, a wireless Z-Wave siren that’s designed to be a complement to your security and smart home system. Just plug it into any outlet and connect it to the Qolsys system. The IQ Siren can provide a 105dB warning siren and three LED lights that strobe in case of an event—which can be anything you choose.
