Question First Alert panel and Ademco keypads

I have a First Alert model FA148C panel with two FA260KP keypads so I don't have the ablility to program my system. I'm assuming the FA148C is the same panel as the Ademco Vista-15. Can I swap out one of my FA260's with an Ademco 6139 or 6160 keypad to get programming capablity? (A much cheaper alternative than having the original installer come out and install a First Alert FA560KP)

Yep, they will work. The differences are cosmetic, and the first alert panel has fewer program options than the Ademco equivalent, but they are minor things that only matter for odd installs.
