Adding a door alarm to unmonitored ADT system

I have an unmonitored Safewatch QuickConnect Plus system by ADT, which is essentially a Honeywell Lynx Plus alarm system. I have door alarms set up on 2 of the 3 doors, and I'd like to add one on the remaining door. How can I do this?Name:  61886d1453397308-honeywell-adt-alarm-no-longer-works-screenshot_2016-01-21-11-27-16.jpg

Make sure you can get into programming, buy a sensor, program it in.

First, you will need the installer code. Websearch using the phrase "ADT installer code" (they fuss if we post the code on this site). The typical code is commonly known, and easy to find.

Then you will need an installation manual: http://helpdesk.nex-tech.com/files/i...rogramming.pdf

You will need to know your existing zone numbers, so you know what zones are available.

Read over the programming steps (*56 programming) and let us know what part of the programming sequence you have trouble following.

Thanks for the reply. How do you sync the door alarm to the keypad? Currently if the front door opens (zone 2) it says "Beep beep front door."

What alarm should i be looking for on Amazon?

I had bought a different door alarm a few years ago but it didn't make a gentle beep beep sound. It was scretchy wailing siren sound. I just want a simple chime if my toddler tries to open the garage door.

Make sure you can get into programming before ordering. The module is programmed once in panel programming mode.

The sound is generated by the keypad/control. What you need is a compatible door contact transmitter.

Honeywell 5800 series devices are what you need.
