    Correct.

Is it possible to send the needed commands to enter programming mode from the Envisalink or will I need to buy a keypad as well? Thanks!
    I believe you can send keypad commands with the different DSC plugins, so that should be doable.

      Get a keypad!

      Send keys are included in the TPI, however, it has very limited strings and you need to tie sequences together. The send keys mimics commands as sent by a keypad entry but you'll have no visibility or feedback.

      For quick and easy access and even quick programming a keypad is advisable.
