Bypass a sensor on a Qolsys IQ Panel 2/2+

On the Qolsys IQ Panel 2/2+, it is possible to bypass an open contact sensor, or any sensor with a trouble condition (e.g., tamper, low battery, offline, etc.) when arming a system from the Customer Website or app. Simply sending an arming command will automatically bypass all zones that would prevent arming. A motion sensor that has been activated, such as one that has recently detected motion, would not be bypassed if the panel is being armed away.

Note: It is not possible to select a specific sensor to bypass using the Customer Website or app. The only way to remotely bypass a sensor is to arm the system, which will trigger an automatic sensor bypass.

Auto Bypass feature

This setting only affects arming locally at the panel. Remote arming will automatically bypass all open or tampered sensors regardless of whether this setting is enabled or disabled. For more information on how to bypass a sensor directly from the security panel, see
