Naming Your Key Fob

You have the option to name your Key Fob(s) during installation, however if you prefer to name your Key Fob(s) after installation you can do so by re-entering the Setup and Naming mode on your Keypad.

  1. Go to Menu, enter your Master PIN, and select Setup and Naming.

  2. Hold down the panic button on your Key Fob.

  3. You will be prompted to name your Key Fob.

We recommend putting the Key Fob on a keychain you carry, so that you can use it as a remote method of arming and disarming your system.

The battery in the Key Fob is not replaceable. Should you require assistance with a Key Fob that is no longer operable, please contact our support team.
