Napco panel master code question

First, thanks to everyone who has helped me with questions regarding my Nap
co alarm system.

I have the quickloader software and am able to upload and download with no  
issues.

I have a P3200 panel and I see a master Security code, download security co
de, dealer keypad program code on it.

My parents have a Gemini 816 panel and I only see a download security code  
box no Master.

If we ever needed something done to the 816 panel that I could not do and t
he installer needed the code they could change it and lock us out since the
re is no master security code? Am I correct? Why is there no Master securit
y code on the 816 or is there a setting I need to do to see that appear on  
the quickloader?

Just trying to be careful so we don't get locked out in the future if someo
ne works on the panel?

Thanks in advance.

I'd guess that it was just the manufacturers choice not to provide as much  
security on a less expensive panel.  

Also, you have to know that the manufacturer (Napco) is not typically consi
dered a DIY friendly company.
