ITI RF commander - Reuse RF door contacts?


My current house has an ITI RF commander system (per the instruction manual). The previous owner had this installed but not monitored. I would like to reuse the existing RF window contacts and tie them to a Samsung Smarthings hub if possible, but I cannot find any information on the RF specs etc of the system. The current brains for it is quite useless as it randomly beeps when a door is opened, even though the alarm is deactivated. Anyone know where I can find some actual information, if it can be reused etc?

Most wireless door contacts are proprietary to the manufacturer, so i kinda doubt this is possible, but I've been wrong before.

he ITI/Interlogix devices use 319.5 MHz frequency, but it's coded to their wireless receivers; so you would need to integrate a compatible intrusion alarm system with your Smartthings system to do you any good:

_Most_ of the Commander vintage devices are compatible with the newer model systems:

Yes..... vintage is correct. I was just working on one the other day.

as it randomly beeps when a door is opened, even though the alarm is deactivated.
That sounds like the chime is turned on. That can be turned off.

If the full name of the control panel is "ITI RF Commander", then that's from the SX-V (SX-5) era, before the advent of Learn-Mode sensors. In which case, the sensors are not compatible with any contemporary system in the last 25 years.

See if this looks like what you've got:
