UPDATE: NEW METHOD RECOMMENDED
We are now recommending that you follow the steps to connect the Alarm.com app to your Deako System instead of connecting to the Qolsys panel.
What are the differences between the two methods?
|Method (& link)||What does work||What will work||What will not work|
RecommendedConnect the Alarm.com app to your Deako System
Control Deako switches through Deako app
Control switches through Alarm.com app
Soon, Alarm.com will be upgraded to automatically sync the switches to the panel
After this upgrade, any new devices you add to the Deako app will automatically show in ADC after you connect the two
Unable to control switches from the panel until the update is released (but can still be controlled via Deako & Alarm.com apps)
Not recommended (this guide!)Connect Deako to your Qolsys IQ Panel 2+ system
The light switches can be controlled by the panel
Automatic addition of new switches
By the end of 2022, Alarm.com will be upgraded to automatically sync the switches to the panel and this will not work
What if I followed this guide and connected Deako switches to the Qolsys panel?
The update coming late 2022 to automatically sync switches to the panel will not function as a result. We recommend removing the switches from the panel now so when the update is released you can immediately enjoy the improved functionality.
1. Remove the switches from the panel
Settings → Advanced Settings → Installation → Devices → Automation → Delete Device (or Remove all devices if applicable)
2. Disable the Deako Settings
Advanced Settings → Installation → Installer Settings → Other Automation → 'Deako Integration Enabled' → Disable
