Also known as a key fob. This remote makes things really easy for even the most troubled electronic users. No need to rush to the keypad, just arm/disarm your system when your outside before you enter or exit. If you have added WIRELESS DOOR LOCKS, then your wireless remote will also unlock or lock your door. If you hold the top 2 buttons down for 3 seconds the remote will trigger a duress to the monitoring station just like a PANIC PENDANT. An indicator light has been added to help users know if the remote successfully armed/disarmed the system.
