G'day,I have Comfort II with 2 KP04s and a KP06.I recently had a garage added to the house and will be extending the alarm into the garage.If I arrive home and want to put my motorcycle in the garage I will need to disarm the system so want a low cost option to do this. So far the potentially best solution is putting a KP03 in the garage.I have two questions;
1 - is the KP03 compatible with Comfort II?
2 - is there a better way to disarm from my garage without compromising security?
Cheers
Ian

KP03 is no longer available. KP04A is the lowest cost alternativeYou could also use a key switch to arm and disarm but keypad is more secure

OK - decided to spend money and go with a KP06.
I'll put the KP06 in the house and move an 04 to the garage.
So - I know the advice is to 'star' wire keypads - but it would save me a lot of hassle if I could 'daisy chain' the garage keypad to another already existing keypad.
Would that work?

If you daisy chain the keypads, the effect may be higher voltage drop along the power supply wires especially when the voice is talking
I suggest you try one wire befoire you finalise
alos double up the power supply 12V and Ground cables
