How It Works

Your wireless keychain remote control from ADT comes equipped with a short-range radio transmitter. Each button sends a coded signal to your ADT monitored security system’s control panel, which then interprets the signal and performs a specific action depending on which button you press. With an optimal range of 15 to 60 feet, you can arm or disarm your security alarm or activate your system’s panic function from virtually anywhere in your home—even your garage!

Why a Key Fob?

Similar to an automotive key fob that locks or unlocks your car doors, the security fob helps lock or unlock your ADT monitored home security system, without you having to enter your PIN on the control panel. Small enough to fit in your pocket, you can use your keychain remote inside or outside your home to call for help in the event of an emergency, even if you can’t reach your control panel or your phone.
