the shops only 100 yards from the house so its well inside walking distance if your not in a huge hurry and I seldom am due to several back, leg , ankle and other serious previous injuries
once Im back there it tends to prevent the (little BS that family and wives constantly come up with, so IF I get back there IM pretty much in (GUY LAND) and no one bothers me plus , If I were to do something really stupid, like set fire to a car,by accident the wife and house are out of the burn area

WIVES AS IN, WHEN THE RELATIVES , AND MY OR MY WIVES FREINDS COME OVER AND MY WIFE GETS TOGETHER WITH MY BROTHER-IN-LAWS , or HER OR MY FRIENDS WIVES AND THINK UP EXTENDED "HONEY DO! LISTS". its like its MANDATORY I STOP WHAT EVER IM DOING TO GO GET(PIZZAS COFFEE CAKE are some OBSCURE OBJECT they forgot to get) if IM easily available, thats why the MEN FOLK go back to the shop about 15% of the time.......just to avoid the HONEY DO LIST, the other 85% IM looking to get help on my projects or they arrived with a potential project that THEY WANT WORKED ON!
I don,t know how things work where you are but around here anytime you get two-6 married gals together it almost instantly generates a "OH GRUMPY WILL GO GET THAT" run to some local store!

btw these are dirt cheap and adding several to your shop area with the buzzers inside your house alerts you of movement or to look outside, its not ideal but its a bit less expensive than the video system and can be used as a back-up

Stuff A Burglar Will Not Tell You.
1. Of course I look familiar. I was here just last week cleaning your
carpets, painting your shutters, or delivering your new refrigerator.

2. Hey, thanks for letting me use the bathroom when I was working in
your yard last week. While I was in there, I unlatched the back window
to make my return a little easier.

3. Love those flowers. That tells me you have taste... and taste means
there are nice things inside. Those yard toys your kids leave out
always make me wonder what type of gaming system they have.

4. Yes, I really do look for newspapers piled up on the driveway. And
I might leave a pizza flyer in your front door to see how long it
takes you to remove it..

5. If it snows while you're out of town, get a neighbor to create car
and foot tracks into the house. Virgin drifts in the driveway are a
dead giveaway.

6. If decorative glass is part of your front entrance, don't let your
alarm company install the control pad where I can see if it's set.
That makes it too easy.

7. A good security company alarms the window over the sink. And the
windows on the second floor, which often access the master bedroom -
and your jewelry. It's not a bad idea to put motion detectors up there
too.

8. It's raining, you're fumbling with your umbrella, and you forget to
lock your door - understandable. But understand this: I don't take a
day off because of bad weather.

9. I always knock first. If you answer, I'll ask for directions
somewhere or offer to clean your gutters. (Don't take me up on it.)

10. Do you really think I won't look in your sock drawer? I always
check dresser drawers, the bedside table, and the medicine cabinet.

11. Here's a helpful hint: I almost never go into kids' rooms.

12. You're right: I won't have enough time to break into that safe
where you keep your valuables. But if it's not bolted down, I'll take
it with me.

13. A loud TV or radio can be a better deterrent than the best alarm
system. If you're reluctant to leave your TV on while you're out of
town, you can buy a $35 device that works on a timer and simulates the
flickering glow of a real television. (Find it
at http://www.faketv.com/)

8 MORE THINGS A BURGLAR WON'T TELL YOU:

1. Sometimes, I carry a clipboard. Sometimes, I dress like a lawn guy
and carry a rake. I do my best to never, ever look like a crook.

2. The two things I hate most: loud dogs and nosy neighbors.

3. I'll break a window to get in, even if it makes a little noise. If
your neighbor hears one loud sound, he'll stop what he's doing and
wait to hear it again... If he doesn't hear it again, he'll just go
back to what he was doing. It's human nature.

4. I'm not complaining, but why would you pay all that money for a
fancy alarm system and leave your house without setting it?

5. I love looking in your windows. I'm looking for signs that you're
home, and for flat screen TVs or gaming systems I'd like. I'll drive
or walk through your neighborhood at night, before you close the
blinds, just to pick my targets.

6. Avoid announcing your vacation on your Facebook page. It's easier
than you think to look up your address.

7. To you, leaving that window open just a crack during the day is a
way to let in a little fresh air. To me, it's an invitation.

8. If you don't answer when I knock, I try the door. Occasionally, I
hit the jackpot and walk right in.

Guys I was able to find my installation manuals, this is were I made all the notes as to which cables I was was tapping into.

Here is the info:

for the Alarm/Proximity Controller

Main Harness (8-Pin)

Brown: Not Used
Grey(2 wires): Tapped into Brown cable on Headlight switch
Red: Red on Ignition
Green: Red/Black @ BCM Green PLUG
Blue: Orange/Black & Gray/Black @ BCM Green PLUG with Diodes
Black: Ground
Purple: Black @ BCM Blue PLUG

Accessory Harness (7-PIN)

Purple: to push to start module
Brown: Light Blue @ brake pedal switch
Green: white @ BCM
Red: Orange ACC @ ignition


Push to Start Module

Main Harness(Attached)

white: Starter(yellow cable @ ignition)
Red (two wires): Red @ ignition
Green: ON1 (pink @ ignition)
Black: ground
Yellow: orange ACC @ ignition

Accessory Harness (6 Pin)

Purple: to keyless(proximity)
Brown: Light Blue on Brake pedal
Yellow: to tach 2002 camaro its a white cable on Blue connector pin #10

I did this on a 2002 camaro, I know that 2000 and below colors will vary on the BCM and tach.

I had multiple wiring diagrams to compare.

Let me know if I missed anything or if any questions come up.

Thanks.

Who uses Lojack and is it worth it??


thats a good question and its not your only option, look into those options and at least have a decent alarm on your car and garage, Id suggest that BEFORE YOU HAVE what ever tracking device you have installed in the car, you Call your local and State police agencies, to see if they have the required equipment in current active service,and have someone that knows how to use it anytime its required, before even considering installing it.
Id also suggest having an alarm on your garage.

They don't all employ what's needed to track every different brand or version available,
Aceshigh wrote:This is just like Red Light camera's, the Villages, Cities have to pay a licensing fee to LoJack.

If they don't feel it's a good investment, they don't pay the licensing fee's, they don't carry the equipment.
LoJack of course isn't going to tell the General Public this ......they're in business to sell you a security device.

IIRC it works off RF triangulation also, so at least 3 locations will be necessary to get a reasonably close target location.
ONly one agency employing a receiver can just get you a single Line of Bearing. Which is basically useless.
< Example of triangulation

You are far better off getting a GPS locator on your vehicle, and paying for a service to track it.

a LAYERED APPROACH, TO PREVENTING THEFT, IS BY FAR THE MOST EFFECTIVE

(1) keep the car out of sight and preferably in a locked garage when parked

(2) your garage should have an alarm with an incredibly loud bell or siren, that can,t be disabled by killing the power and good locks and video camera surveillance

(3)the car should have a tracking device like lO-JACK

(4) get good insurance with AGREED VALUE pay off

(5) a hidden fuel cut-off switch and ignition bye-pass sure won,t hurt

(6) a fenced yard with at least one large dog is obviously one option that tends to reduce trespassers

(7) parking the car with another locked car blocking access makes its theft take time, and the longer it takes the less incentive a thief sees

(8) redundant, overlapping,motion sensor lighting helps especially if each lighted area is hooked to a loud chime , that bongs when it comes on.

just a reminder to NOT get
LAZY AND BRAIN DEAD LIKE I JUST DID!

Image
like I mentioned previously Ive got numerous motion sensors for my security system and ,numerous motion sensor flood lights in my shop which makes it rather easy to walk thru the dark shop as the lighting turns on in each area as you enter and stays on,it also lets the wife in the house know I'm still alive as she hears a beep when the sensor picks up movement in the shop, the motion sensor lights making it rather easy to locate the overhead light switches , fan switches alarm key pads etc., well today I noticed one flood light bulb was burnt out and I grab a replacement bulb and move the ladder I have over, but find theres several engine blocks on a pallet in the ideal location for the ladder base , so in a moment of total stupidity I place the ladder straddling the engines, rather than just taking the 5 minutes to move them, naturally as soon as I start to climb the ladder the base skids out,, totally because of the stupid way Id placed the ladder, luckily I'm not hurt and don,t fall, but it sure reminded me not to be a dumb lazy fool, and think a bit before working unsafely, SO!, coming to what little senses I still have left at 66 years old, I moved the darn parts, repositioned the ladder and changed the bulb safely like I should have done in the first place

heres a couple 9-10 camera night vision compatible security systems,(linked below) that you can self install, that allow you to visually access your home over a cell phone or the internet , or from a computer monitor screen in your home or both,and of course set it up that way with a home view monitor.
(provided you have the security code and know how) that allows you to place cameras outside or inside your home or shop or both, and put the camera output on a video monitor or the computer screen . now obviously a multi layered approach too security where you have a standard monitored burglar alarm and decent locks on the home and shop would also be very helpful. as will numerous motion sensor light fixtures, and an audible buzzer that notifies people inside the home when outside motion lights come on
but having a video record of everything moving around your shop and home could be useful

If your looking for a decent values in video surveillance system for your home and shop you may want to look these and similar systems over, the $700 price may seem a bit high and you certainly would use it, and most of us have far more than $700 invested in tools cars etc. we would like to protect from theft and a home to protect from invasion by those in society that think that they can steal, rape and pillage at will.

having a really loud alarm bell and a quality , monitored alarm system,that works even if the power is cut off, that has a cell phone dialer and battery back-up with motion sensors and door and window sensors on your home and shop is smart!
