    backup battery or siren?

    k i need to get a backup battery or siren? what should i get? i can only afford one...here's the thing the installers of my alarm put the siren in the open so i think its easy to cut it off....
    but what do u recommend? battery is more expensive than the back up siren...

    I would recommend moving the siren to a more hidden location in the engine and getting a back-up siren and hide it well (preferably on the inside). That way they will not want to stay inside to continue the theft.

    Re: backup battery or siren?

    What is the backup battery for? And why do you need 2 sirens?

    The back up batt is in case main power is lost, the alarm will continue to keep powered up. A back up siren will continue to sound even if power is off and takes a key to shut off.


    2 sirens are better than 1 because the louder you can make your alarm, the better to make the scum run off.

    Re: backup battery or siren?

    For the reasons described a back up battery would be the ideal choice. Better to keep the siren on, than to have 2 sirens that can be turned off.

    I would be ideal to have both, but the back up siren will keep sounding even when all power is off. It has its own power batt inside it. If you have both, the 2 sirens will continue to sound if power is off, but what if they find the siren without back up and cut it? No more sound (even with back up battery) without the back up siren. That's why you should hide the back up siren very well, preferably on the inside!

    I know DEI sells both, (515R for the back up siren & 520T for the back up battery). There might be others, especially the back up siren.

    Check out: www.directed.com & www.partsexpress.com

    Re: backup battery or siren?

    Shelby alarms make a siren with the backup battery and key build right into the back of the siren. Even if the alarm isn't going off and the main power is cut the alarm will sound.

    Re: backup battery or siren?

    go to any DEI dealer, buy a backup battery... model number 520T, and get a mini Pezio Siren, model number 513t and put it in your heater vent... facing the outside of the vent...
    no thief can stand the mini piezo.. they hurt/pulse your eardrums when they go off, they are 125 DB mini sirens... sounds like a bird chirping over and over again in your head

    do that and your going to be okay
