Add a Key Fob

For detailed information about programming key fobs and panic buttons, refer to the appropriate installation and panel programming guides. To add a key fob to a system, complete the following steps.

Optional: Enable Wireless Encryption and Panic Supervision

Enable Wireless Encryption for encrypted key fob models. Both allows both encrypted and unencrypted key fob models to operate on the system. All requires that all key fobs programmed must be encrypted models.

Enable Panic Supervision if you want fobs to have a 30-day supervision that reports transmitter lost or low battery conditions without requiring a Supervision Time for the key fob.
