If you have a DSC PC 9010 (http://www.avss.net/PDF%20Files/DSC%...ll%20Guide.pdf), those only have 2 hardwired inputs. Could you be seeing hardwired contacts attached to wireless transmitters?

With the installation manual, you will need to know the installer code to add new transmitters to the system.

I'll check it out and try n get some pics. There are currently no wireless sensors attached. I have the manual with some stuff written in it from the installer.

Probably your simplest way to add wireless to this system would be to replace the existing keypad with a RFK 5500 keypad. That would give you a wireless receiver. Even though your system is an older model, they did keep the newer hardware backward compatible.
