    2GIG Installation/Programming manuals and optimal panel settings

    For more programming/Installation guides see:
    http://2gig.com/dealer-materials/installation-guides


    Recommended optimal Q settings to enable all feature and functions of panel:

    note- not all features and functions may be available as shown below depending on your panels firmware version.

    Most Vivint panels are running old/outdated firmware,If your firmware is Version 1.9.6 or higher you can simply swap the cell module and sign up for a plan here, if older firmware you can update panel firmware for free HERE. Running new/updated firmware will not negatively affect those who are currently monitored by vivint, or cause issues, and it will also allow you to get known bug fixes, add new panel functionality, and add support to use/add all the newest gear/sensors/equipment including the Lowes (available at all physical store locations) iris branded zwave switches/outlets/sirens/locks/tstats, etc,
    even if you don't have the alarm.com "home automation package", you can configure it to run locally at panel itself (set Q79 to 2 for local home automation Rules and Scenes).

    If your Vivint/other panel is locked out (Q44), you will not have access to system configuration, and you will have to get your panel unlocked, by disabling lockouts (provider has to reset lockout timer via alarm.com backend).

    Further note- Even though you will be able to run zwave empower home automation, and use it via panel for free, you will not be able to remote control access it via PC or smartphone, or set it for 'Geo Fence' automation without the alarm.com Empower add on service plan.

    Note- this is the optimal panel configuration for systems using alarm.com cellular communicator modules. If using Telguard/Uplink cellular modules, you will need to change Q91.

    Blue text Q's are the changes between v1.10 and v1.12. Firmware 1.12 adds IP broadband internet capability to the panel. Q92(0) is set to " none" for Go!bridge broadband network device. If using the Go!bridge, you will need to change Q92.



    * defaults: 1561 (2GIG)/2203 (Vivint)

    Firmware v1.12 (adds IP broadband capability to panel via Go!Bridge Q92-Q95)
    Firmware v1.13 adds additional voice descriptors and equipment codes see post: http://www.2gigforum.com/threads/262...-13-Is-now-Out and Q97 see below

    To access panel setting configuration:
    Logo>enter installer code>system configuration>" go to", then enter "05", then "go to", enter " 06", then "go to", enter " 07"... etc, for each Q. (For example, to disable Q44 lockout, hit "go to", then enter 44, then enter 0. Numbers in parentheses are the numbers to enter on each programming (Q)uestion)

    Updated settings, following values have been optimized/updated.

    (Q29) Daily test reports enabled. Changed from monthly test to daily test. If panel goes offline/fails to send daily test signal, this will trigger alert/notification that panel is not communicating (central station needs to be notified of the frequency change in order to properly log the "No Test Received" event, so if you change this from the default 30 days, contact your provider).

    (Q64) smart test reports enabled. Reduces unnecessary CS traffic, and resets daily test if panel has already communicated for that day (alarm, trouble events, etc).

    (Q20) ANSI compliance for minimum swinger shutdown count (amount of times same sensor can activate in a single alarm event). Increased from 1 to 2.

    (Q46) troubles dont sound at night (10pm-9am) -disabled. Required for UL985 compliance on life safety fire protection enabled systems (if you have installed smoke detectors). If a smoke detector should fail/lose supervision, panel is able to sound a trouble beep at any time.

    For systems without fire protection, optimal setting is (Q46) enabled.
