Viper Alarm Flashing Window Stickers

I want to fit a second one of these but this one in the rear window.




The cable is too short so i need to get another couple of meters. What amp twin power cable do i need?

I see it comes in 3A, 6A, 10A, 15A, 20A

I'm guessing it's just an LED you'll be powering so the 3A will be more than enough

You could use the thinnest paired wire you can get, really tiny would be fine for a low voltage LED light panel like that.

Thinner is easier to hide in trim gaps too.

Seen.

In not sure about the window sticker after seeing the Vid. Looks like it turns the car unto a lighthouse, and might actually attract scum like moths to a light. That blip on lock/unlock would totally get on my tits too, but I'm sure it's switchable.

Although I do prefer some kind of audible indication of lock/unlock I agree that all the blips are a bit ott

Those blips were not on lock / unlock, those were the warn away proximity sensors when someone goes close to the window.

Arming / Disarming sounds are optional.

The interior blue light does not come from the window sticker at all, there is no reflection from that into the car. The blue light comes from he pager / antenna

You can look at that either way... Because it is so obvious, they will spot it and hopefully walk away before smashing the window. 50/50 gamble as with anything!
