Home automation access w/o monitoring


I'm new to this forum and to home automation. I just built a home and the contractor added in some home automation equipment including a Qolsys IQ Panel. Is there a way to access and control the Panel remotely without using a monitoring service like Alarm(dot)com ? Honestly, if it can't be done then I'll probably remove some of the equipment.

Thanks for your help!

Welcome to the forums.

I moved this to the security forum as this is the area that is more applicable to the remote access issue.

As far as I know..... there is no way to remotely access a system without a monitoring company.

Welcome to the forum.
The simple answer is unfortunately, No, you will need alarm(dot)com or one of the other subscription services based on which IQ you have.

Unfortunately, it's pretty much impossible to do any home automation these days without some sort of internet connection and or subscription.
