Adding glass break detectors to ADT Safewatch system.

Can anyone tell me how to add a Honeywell 5853 to an ADT Safewatch system. I already have one installed in the front of the house and I was adding one to my back door and guest room. I'd like to just add them to the zone the current glass break is on unless someone thinks that's a bad idea. I have too many pets for motion sensors so I'm just going with as many glass breaks as I can get.

What is the actual system model? ADT uses the "Safewatch" branding in numerous models (the correct model will be on the inside of the door of the system enclosure).

If you already have wireless devices, and a 6160 keypad, (the fixed alpha 6150 won't work for this) the wireless glass break would be installed on it's own zone (each wireless transmitter is it's own zone). You would need the installer code (relatively easy to get, normally), and know what your next available wireless zone number is.
