Yeh I think AU1's had smartlock, but I don't know about the series 1 & 1/2 which I think AU_Fairmont -S- has got if I remember correctly.
I will have a BA keypad in my possesion sometime next week and I will give it a go. Mine has Smartshield and has the boot release, lock, unlock and the panic alarm which is the same on the BA's.
Will it work?! We will find out.
