Safewatch Pro 2000 vs Security Manager 2000

We had ADT install an alarm apprix 8 years ago. We dropped their monitoring when we dropped land line phone.

We have been using it for basic notification/protection since.

A few weeks ago, we replaced the front door and surround.
Didn't remember that there was a sensor and magnet in the wire was was cut and sensor tossed with door.

Got a new sensor yesterday and wiring to re-route back to the panel.

While working on this, I would also like to add another keypad (upstairs in master bedroom). I would also like to locate the programming guide for my hardware while I am at it. (Just in case I should need it).

I am having some issues locating a keypad as I am not quite sure what I should be looking for.

I understand that the SWPro2000 is a Honeywell/Ademco Vista 20se.
When looking at the manual for the 20se, the keypad is different. My keypad looks just like the one from ADT's manual for the Security Manager 2000.

When I open the steel box, I see: Safewatch Pro 2000 / Security Manager 2000.
I also see:
20ADTEG/20ADTED in the steel box.

The keypad reads Safewatch Pro 2000.
(On the front)

Can someone please tell me what Keypad I have and what others are compatible?

Mine looks like the one on page 12 of this manual:

But - I wasn't aware that there was a system named Security Manager 2000.

Seems weird to me.

Thanks in advance !

Your keypad is a private labeled ADT, you can buy a similar unit used off of ebay or buy a new honewell 6150 or 6160. For the master bedroom, I would reccomend the 6160 as it will give you an alpha that if the alarm is going off you will see e.g. ALARM FRONT DOOR, rather that ALARM 01.
As far as the Safewatch PRO 2000 Vs. Security Manager 2000, they are the same panel, just marketing wording as the Security Manager name plate was used for small business applications.

Thanks for the info.
I ran home at lunch and got the model number from the existing ADT keypad.
It is a 6137B Ademco.

After reading more here, I see that I need an Alpha Numeric keypad in order to take advantage of advanced programming.

Does anyone know if my system will accespt wireless sensors if I add a keypad that is also an RF unit? If so, what are suggestiones on keypad models?

Any idea what I need to do to add a second keypad to my existing setup?
Is it as easy as wiring the new kaypad to the same screw terminals as the existing keypad?

Sure. If you don't already have a receiver, one of the RF model keypads will give you that capability. The biggest difference between your system and the V20se is that the partitioning functions have been deleted from the system programming, and some of the default settings are a little different (like the default delay times).
