What's new when switching from an IQ Panel to a Frontpoint Hub?

Curious about what to expect with your new Frontpoint Hub? Here are a few key differences to get pumped about:

  • The Hub’s radio is 4G/LTE, which has specific advantages over the radio in the IQ panel such as:

    • Higher speed

    • Improved quality/reliability of signal

    • Expanded coverage

    • Will never hit end-of-life from a carrier perspective

  • The Hub has support for more sensors and devices:

    • The IQ panel can only support up to 59 sensors while the Hub supports 80.

    • The Hub supports over 3.5 times as many Z-Wave devices than an IQ panel- allowing you to add up to 242 devices on a single panel.

    • The Hub supports all versions of Z-wave protocol so newer home automation devices can be added to your system.

  • The Hub has LED indicators to show the arming state, which are easily visible from a distance. The IQ panel requires you to walk up to the panel to see the arming state.

  • The Hub is actively developed by Frontpoint and receives regular firmware updates to improve functionality.

    • The IQ panel no longer receives updates from the manufacturer to improve its performance and features.

  • The Hub can support multiple auxiliary keypads/touchscreens in different locations around the house. The IQ panel doesn’t have auxiliary devices available from Frontpoint.

  • The Hub allows for bypassing sensors remotely. This can only be done manually on the IQ panel.
