How to program wireless remote to home security alarm?

I just bought a wireless remote and I’d like to program it with my home security system. I have GE Networx NX-6 alarm monitoring system. Can anyone help?

Adding new modules or keypads is not very difficult. Here is an article that walks you through the steps to do that. Verify first what model you have and that this applies. This article also includes a link to the manual if you need that as well:

    First of all, the remote has to be compatible with the panel. Secondly, you will need the installers code. If you have those, the manual will tell you the rest.

    Should not be that hard, with the right codes (and assuming compatibility) – and the GE process is easier than some. Our company uses all GE wireless sensors. However, there is one more topic to consider. Is this a monitored system, and do you have an agreement with a company to monitor your alarm? If so, I suggest you look into whether your agreement allows you to add devices that you buy on your own – you may be voiding some of the contractual protections available to you by doing this yourself. Once you start doing programming, you may be handing your alarm company (again, if you have one), the permission to blame anything that happens (or does not work) on you, based on the work you did.Saving a little now could actually backfire on you.

    And if you don’t have an alarm company monitoring you system, why not?!?! You should at least be monitored for fire (should not cost you any extra on the monthly) – that can save you even more $ on your insurance than being monitored for intrusion. We love the new interactive services that allow your system to communicate with you, but we always back them up with professional cellular monitoring. And that raises my next point.

    If you are monitored, I hope you use cellular monitoring – the only truly safe method. Intruders are cutting phone and internet lines with increasing regularity, and 90% of the systems in use today rely on a vulnerable physical connection for communicating an alarm event.More alarm companies are using GSM devices, but the upcharge on equipment and monthly can be brutal, and it should not be.
