stereo swap in 01 9-5

Hey all!
So I bought a 9-5 that is missing the stereo. As the original type stereo looks kind of cheap I was thinking of installing an aftermarket stereo. I found a pretty cheap install dash kit on ebay that replaces the big radio with a storage pocket and a slot for a normal stereo. I am sure I can locate a harness adapter at my local audio store. My question is this, will it mess the security system up by adding a radio like this? I was told some of these cars needed the radio properly removed and properly installed with a computer at the dealer.
Somebody must have ditched the original stereo for a better one. Any advise would be appreciated! thanks!

You only need to "marry" a stock radio, any replacement can be wired in no issues
