Johnson Controls recently announced that its IQ4, which replaces the IQ2plus, is now available. By using the IQ Platform, this lower-cost adaptation of the IQ Panel 4 targets residential, SMB, builder, multi-family/MDU, and wellness installations with many of the software features customers love – such as Bluetooth Disarming and Dual Path communication on LTE and Wi-Fi – while retaining the IQ Panel 2’s attractive form factor, with easy installation and management from the panel as well as the iOS and Android apps.

It includes an 8 MP camera with a 120° lens with FlexTilt for clear disarming photographs and alarm videos. It also includes a built-in glass-break detector via its two microphones, supported by four QuadSound front-facing 4-Watt built-in speakers.

Its 7-inch touchscreen is as simple to use as a smartphone, supporting a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. It also sports a rechargeable lithium ion 3000 mAh battery rated for over 24 hours. It includes SmartMount for wall mounting, while users can also purchase a SmartMount table stand or SmartMount IQ Base Table Stand with built-in subwoofer.

Like all other products on the IQ Platform, IQ4 integrates seamlessly with services for an unparalleled, end-to-end smart living security solutions.
