what exactly does a battery backup do and how would i install one? i imagine it powers the system in case the battery goes dead or something?

Thats exactly what it does... incase your battery cable is cut during theft.

What does the windows up/down module do? Just let you roll your windows from a distance?

you know i was thinking about if you had like the big-3 and you had like 1/0 ga. wire, it would act as a backup in a way, think about if the theives did cut your regular wire your alarm would still work becuase of the big-3,it would still allow power to the system,like a redundant system

yes, it allows up/down from your remote. pretty much useless really, just cool to have :D

Get a shitload of mini piezos. I got 8 installed under my dash yesterday so now I have 10 sirens. It's unbearable to sit in my car for more than 2 seconds. It makes you want to rip your ears out. THat's a good way to make sure they won't be in your car long :)

What do you mean? Like how do you know if its a good install or not?
Make sure everything works, best thing I can tell you.

I have backup battery, piezo sirens, DEI 530T window automation (windows go up when armed), 506T glass breakage sensor, 508D Motion detector (windows go up on first stage), 2 strobe lights under the dash, air horns under the dash, red/blue strobes on the front and rear deck, and the DEI hood lock system.

Alarm add-ons are kind of my hobby, that and I live in a risky part of philly

Also: For the install, make sure everything works (Best buy installed my first alarm and they didnt connect the dome light supervision, the remote trunk release, etc). Also, Wherever you have it installed (make sure you tell them where, best buy put mine right under hte driver knee panel, and the wires were all VERY exposed...bastards) and make sure that you cant see any of the wires. The alarm wire are mostly 18 gauge and are brightly colored, they stick out like a sore thumb as opposed to the factory wiring. Have the installers either wire loom or electrical tape all wires, and tuck them high up in the dash.

I only have the regular 791xv, but I would highly recommend the backup battery, the glass break sensor, and a couple of extra sirens, one in the engine bay and one under the dash. I paid $250 to get my alarm installed with all the bells and whistles (including remote start :yumyum: ). Looking back on it though, I should have installed it myself, just didn't have the knowledge at the time. :(

^ +2 on that info. i coughed up retail price for just the 791xv and i'd like to just do the addons myself, if it doesn't void warranty

Yesterday I bought 3 mini sirens (tsunami brand which is the same as DEI) and a backup battery for about $45 total. Are the accessory installs straight forward or should I get the installer to put it in at the same time?

I'd say let the installer do it, if it were me. That's what I'm going to do. Gotta find someone I know can do the job though, to do all of it :-)

I just picked up 2x Tsunami(same friggin thing as DEI lol) Mini Piezo Sirens, a Backup Battery and a Glass Break Sensor for a grand total offffffff... around 56 dollars shipped

Not too bad

Got 18 more to waste *drool*

I may just save up a little bit

Get the windows module the hood lock, and the tilt sensor, and be done with it.

I think that'd cover a alarm system for me, eh? ;)
