Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus Chosen for D.R. Horton Smart Home Solution
The IQ Panel and Z-Wave devices are installed and connected in each house prior to the sale by professionally licensed and trained security contractors.
SAN JOSE, Calif. — Qolsys announces the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus has been selected by D.R. Horton (NYSE: DHI), said to be the largest homebuilder in the United States, to provide the hub for the company’s smart home solution.
The national homebuilder’s “Home Is Connected” smart home system is included in the base price of each new home from the company’s family of brands.
Along with the Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus panel, the system includes an intrusion alarm and automation platform by Alarm.com, Honeywell Home thermostat from Resideo, door locks by Kwikset, smart switches by Eaton Corp., video doorbell by SkyBell and hands free, voice-first experiences with Amazon Alexa.
“The Qolsys IQ Panel is the brain in the home,” says Qolsys Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Mike Hackett. “With a 7-inch HD touchscreen, on-screen programming and marketing, and seven wireless radios built in, it connects every device prior to move in, enabling one seamless experience from the first day the homeowner opens the door.”
The IQ Panel and Z-Wave devices are installed and connected in each house prior to the sale by professionally licensed and trained security contractors, then configured to the homeowner’s specifications upon move in.
The Qolsys connected home solution has been included with every D.R. Horton home since October 2018.
“Homebuyer response to our roll out of America’s Smart Home has been positive. The system is now included in each new home from D.R. Horton and our family of brands, including Emerald, Express and Freedom Homes,” states Donald R. Horton, chairman of the board. “We have always been focused on providing our customers the best value in the market, and we are pleased to deliver features that help them connect with their home from anywhere.”
