Your IQ panel has special menu options for restarting and powering down. If this is not done properly, the panel may not power back on or work properly.

If you’re trying to restart your system to fix an error on your panel, please reach out to us at 1.800.PROTECT (1.800.776.8328). We will help you find the issue and fix it.

1. Tap or drag the top menu down.

2. Tap Settings.

3. Tap Advanced Settings.

Your IQ2/IQ4 will take the needed steps to power itself down properly. It will then start back up, and after a few minutes, you should be back to your home screen.
