I bought a Forester without the key fob & the alarm won't stop going off.

I bought a 2007 Forester from a dealer without the key fob. They gave me three keys, but no remote lock thingie.
When I unlocked the car with one of the keys, a bad thing happens and the horn goes off and the lights flash. I somehow made this stop but am afraid of it happening again. I used one of the other keys and it only chirped at me a few times, but I was able to start the car and drive it.
Can someone who owns a Forester tell me why this is going on? Is it connected to locking the car using the power locks? Do I need a replacement remote lock thing? Will getting a replacement lock thing involve a lot of money and a Subaru dealer?
Is there a trick in the meantime that will allow me to lock, unlock and drive my car without making the alarm go off?
