Qolsys IQ Panel: How to Install the QS-1112-P01 Mini-Door/Window Contact

DIY How to Install the QS-1112-P01 Mini-Door and Window Contact in conjunction with your Qolsys IQ wireless security system.

Take your QS-1112-P01 mini-door and window contact, remove all the contents from the box carefully. The box should contain the magnet, sensor, packet of adhesive and most important the instructions. Next, you will begin to put the adhesive on the sensor and the magnet, then pull off the battery tabs. Now you are ready to install it. Before you install the QS-1112-P01 mini-door and window contact make sure you pull off the adhesive, clean the mounting surface with rubbing alcohol and apply the sensor on the door frame and the magnet on the actual moving part of the door/window. Please make sure you have the magnet lined up with the triangle as shown in the video. You will also notice there is a knockout on the back of the QS-1112-P01 mini-door and window contact. Screw that part into the wall so if someone attempted to pull the device off the wall it will trigger a tamper the alarm.

How to Wire the Transformer to a Honeywell LYNX Plus L3000 Wireless Security System

  1. Depress the two tabs at the top of the Honeywell LYNX L3000 Wireless Security System
  2. Be gentle when laying the system down you don’t want to crack the face of the system
  3. You will need 22 *2 gauge wire for this application, you will want to have it cut to the length from the control panel to the outlet.
  4. Pay attention to how the video shows both ends of the wire being cut in a different manner.
  5. The Honeywell LYNX L3000 Wireless Security System uses AC current so don’t worry about any polarity.
  6. When running the wire through the back mounting panel, tie a knot so the wire is not trying to pull itself out of the terminals.
  7. Try not to expose any excess copper either on the transformer itself or into the panel because you could run the risk of shorting your panel out.
  8. When screwing the wire’s into the terminals use caution don’t screw them into the panel to rough because you could strip the terminal you are using metal screws into a plastic terminal.
