I've got one also; and as I understand it, they all have to be programmed, so that they know where they are, in order to only sound the alarms which pertain to your area. Maybe since you bought it from Radio Shack, you could take it back to one, and some there would be willing to program it; programming it is only entering one number as I recall (I think you look up your location on a web site to get the number).
