This is probably a dumb question but when using diodes for an alarm install how do you connect them to the wires? I'm assuming they need to be soldered....

I always solder and heat shrink (or tape) mine. They can be crimped too and I have seen some who use liquid tape to seal off their crimps with pretty good results. Also, here is a good link that explains more than you would ever want to know about diodes: http://www.the12volt.com/diodes/diodes.asp
