Adding an additional keypad to your ADT Security System is a convenient way to manage the security of your home or business.
For many people with security systems installed, adding an additional keypad in a different location allows the user to have an additional access point to be able to arm the system, disarm, and manage the settings without having to run downstairs or upstairs to the single keypad. It also allows you to hear a chime or voice descriptions.
For others your keypad might be getting old and you just need to replace it with a new one.
