The update, 1.6.1, sends the photos from the IQ Panel to a smartphone.

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Qolsys, a provider of residential security and smart home solutions, announced that its next software update (1.6.1) includes the capture and delivery of disarm photos from the IQ Panel camera to the Alarm.com cloud and to the smartphone.

The company says end users will have immediate access to these photos for visual verification, including username and time stamp.

It also has a 7-inch touchscreen with an interface for security and smart home control, as well as Dual Path connectivity over cellular and Wi-Fi.

Other new features in the Qolsys 1.6.1 software update include expanded support for Z-Wave devices with more robust troubleshooting and diagnostic tools, according to the company. The IQ Panel connects to the cloud using its built-in Wi-Fi radio and downloads the latest version of the software seamlessly.

It is the fourth software update from Qolsys in the past year, and is the sixth major update since the IQ Panel began shipping in 2014, the company says.
