Just bought a home, it’s got a home security system with an IQ Panel to control access points, thermostat, etc.
Previous homeowner didn’t leave any of the access codes, and default codes don’t work. The property is covered in stickers for a local monitoring service, but I’m not interested in having them monitor – I’d prefer to do it myself.
What are my options here? Is it possible to rig this system up and set up alerts for my cell phone? Or should I just rip everything out and install Google Nest hardware?
