Key Fob Control

Definition

A keychain with a remote control button that can arm or disarm a home security system. They may also include a panic button, making it easier to sound the alarm from anywhere in the home. Key fobs are also used for other purposes, such as to lock and unlock car doors.

Things you need to know

Multiple key fobs can be programmed for the same home security system, which makes it possible to give them to houseguests or older children without sharing the system's security code.

Cost Considerations

Key fobs usually come included in a home security system. Additional units cost about $25 to $60 each.

Costs vary greatly by region (and even by zip code). To get free estimates from local contractors, please indicate yours.
