For someone an unnecessary luxury for other one a must have feature.Opening a car with the key can take 3 to 5 seconds. If your car is a daily drive then you have to open it at least 2 times a day 5 times a week. Simple math will yield a number 35 minutes a year. You waste 35 minutes of your life by opening the car with a key every year.
This fact and the fact that I don't like to fiddle with a key every time I want to enter my car made me to add a keyless entry module to the central lock system.
I don't know about other car markets but the EDM Integra Type R DC2 certainly did not come with keyless entry feature as a standard.
To do this mod by yourself it is required that you have some car electric knowledge and do know how to trace wires.
Using the Integra service manual I drew a schematics of my KEETEC keyless entry module wiring. I usually do such drawings in order to remember how it is connected if something has to be revised.

In addition to this swap you have to add wires to power the motor lock from OEM door lock unit output. Then put everything back together and you're done!
