You can programme the central locking yourself but on a Mk2 Focus and above (which a Smax is basically under the skin) the ability to programme PATS2 immobilisers was removed from the system (it used to be that you only needed the 2 original keys to add more).

I can categorically state that to programme keys to your car, you will have to get them added via the OBD port using a programming terminal.

Auto Locksmiths and Ford have these and also some Garages may have them too but Ford will charge you about 2 hours labour for the job although it takes about 30 seconds to do.

You are best off ringing around to find the best deal.
