    One thing to note about security systems... There are generally two distinctly different versions of the same devices... One version is the generic OEM one sold by the company, this is for the DIY consumers or small security installers and includes a manufacture supported firmware that is generally easy to make changes to... Than there is the 'proprietary' firmwares that big security companies flash into these devices making them work only on their own network as to prevent you from using it independently, changes are complicated or impossible without that companies own proprietary software...

    If the device was used on a proprietary security network, you would need that companies software... If the device is the OEM software than the company that made it should have software to edit those settings and/or a way to do it from the keypad...

    If you search around there 'might' be a firmware flash that will make it more user friendly or steps to unlock certain versions...

    I can tell you EXACTLY what coca said. if it was installed by a company, that company uses there own items to make changes, very little else will be able to do it and of those very few things ALL are very complicated.
    depending on the type of system though you might be able to swap out the main board.
    if you are running motion sensor and basic other intrusion detection then with a little reworking of wires you can set up your own maing board. if however your sensors also have the security companies name on them then you might need to decrypt the signal and it is once again cheaper to replace it.

    last but not least run a google search on the manufaturer and model and you will find the manual which will let you know what program you need to have (or at least it should) and then you need to find it.

    best of luck on this
