Ademco 20p adding a 4229 Expander Question

I have filled the eight zones that come with the 20p. I believe there is a way to do zone doubling but dont want to venture down this route. I have an Ademco 4229.

To install the Ademco 4229 into my 20p is it a simple plug it in and the system will see it type of event? Will the Ademco 4229 just be zone 9-16? Should I set the dip switches to #2? Also once I get the 4229 going, I want to monitor my garage door but not report it to the central system. This is a programming flag, right?

Thanks

You can alter the starting zone, just set the dip switches as needed, according to your install instructions. Once connected to the system keypad bus, you are good to go.

The zone behavior is programming. Make sure you have an alpha keypad, like a 6160 to do your programming.

do I have to down the system ( remove power ) before installing the 4229?

you should, yes. Also, check the install manual. I think address 07 is zones 9-16.

Set all switches to off except number 5 it should be on.
