Install a key fob on a new system.

Trying to install a key fob on a new system. I press menu/devices/add device on the keypad, but key fob is not listed. What do I do?

Hi @warut ,

Assuming that you have a Gen 3 SimpliSafe, you can add a new Key Fob to your system just like any other sensor or component. Just like you mentioned, you'll want to go to your Keypad and navigate to Menu > Devices > Add Device, to enable pairing mode. Then, you want to press the built-in Panic Button on the Key Fob, which is the red button at the end, for 2 seconds. The Base Station should announce "Key Fob", and then you'll be able to give it a name on your Keypad.

Full step-by-step instructions can be found here.
