Old model entry sensors into new model system

I recently got some older model entry sensors as a gift over the holidays. I have a newer model system and was wondering if there is a way to add them to the system. The newer model sensors have a button you press to pair the sensor with the system whereas the older model sensors do not have said button. Is there a way to add them or will I have to exchange them?

Nope. SS2 sensors do not work with SS3 system. Only the camera works with both systems.

Keep in mind that the new system uses encrypted signals, so the signals from the old sensors will be seen as invalid.
