Your keyfob is programmed at this point but now we will need to assign the keyfob to your arming and disarming code before it will actually work.

From the main screen you will need to type in your 4 digit master code followed by 8 0 2 # 4 4 9 and you should hear a single beep. If you do not hear the beep try typing in the entire command again without any pauses. (In this sequence 02 is the user number and 49 is any one of the zones assigned to that keyfob, so these numbers will change if you are adding multiple keyfobs and/or assigning them to different codes.)

Now try arming and disarming the panel using the keyfob.

  • Thanks for that additional 'assigning' information. I had been unaware of that and it resolved my issues.
