    Background
    Around 50 ZID's are now protecting Zeds Australia Wide. The ZID is an immobiliser specifically designed for the z32 300zx (1989-2000). There are already reports on the aus300zx forum of ZID immobilisers successfully preventing thieves from stealing the owner's 300zx.






    Specifications
    • ZID self arms automatically upon removing the key. No need to remember to arm it so your zed is never accidentally 'unprotected'.
    • Installed with just 6 wires to connect + a couple extra connections.
    • Highly effective due to:
      • Not being a large commercial scale security product. Currently installed in less than 50 zeds Australia wide, so highly unlikely to be on the thief's radar like well known brands are. Time is the thief's enemy. Any device which requires them to put in extensive work to learn how the unit is designed and located and finally bypass, will deter all but the most hardened individuals!!!:bash:
      • Designed specifically for the Z32 300ZX. Thieves would need a very deep knowledge of the zed to be anywhere close to knowing how to find / disarm a ZID
      • Only sold to forum members
      • Installation instructions provided outline various locations for placing the unit and different wiring options to immobilise different circuits. So each ZID installation can be as totally unique as the owner desires.
    • All Black wiring design further prolongs thief's attempts to disarm.
    • ZID is still armed and zed is still immobilised even if :
      • any ZID wires are cut AND/OR
      • thief tries to bridge the zed's ignition, fuel or starter relays AND/OR
      • jump/roll start or usual hotwiring tricks are tried.
    • Can be located in such a position in the car as to be very frustrating and almost unfeasible for the typical car thief / joyrider to find. Detailed install instructions with photos etc are included.
    • Has no remotes to lose/break or batteries to go flat.
    • ZID should work with turbo timers- as soon as the turbo timer switches the engine off, the ZID will be automatically armed.
    • ZID should also work fine with other security devices. Advice on how to easliy set this up can be provided. in fact having two flashing LED's will really deter / confuse thieves.
    • Draws almost no power other than the flashing LED (approx 25mA) which can be turned off if desired.
    • Standard ZID is a single point of immobilisation (but one VERY effective one), however you can add unlimited extra points easily (I can provide details if required)
    • ZID is NOT just a kill switch, which are easily found and disarmed!!!
    • More detailed specifications can be provided on an individual basis if required.
    • NB: Please also read the disclaimer below.
    Pricing


    Pre-built unit complete with all wiring and necessary parts ready to go (There are only around six wires to connect up plus a couple additional connections to/from switches etc and a comprehensive installation and zed wiring instructions manual via email. Additional phone support as required).



    Please note the price has risen since last batch but this is the first price rise since I started making them many years ago.
    • $119 Brisbane pickup DIY Install
    • $129 Delivered Aust Wide DIY Install
    • $TBC Supplied/Installed (Bris only)
    Installation


    Each ZID includes access to comprehensive instructions in soft copy complete with photos, suggestions on placement and lots of tips.

    • Skill level required: Connecting / spicing into automotive wiring, soldering skills, following simple wiring diagrams, routing of wires, removal and refit of several interior panels. The installer will require basic ability to make wiring connections. Should you use a professional security system installer it is imperative that you request they follow the unique install instructions. Be wary of any installer who believes that the instructions provided are overly elaborate and unneccessary. (They were designed like that ON PURPOSE!):zlove:
    • Tools required: Basic screwdrivers and spanners, quality soldering iron and solder, wire cutters, quality electrical adhesive tape, 6MM drill. Access to Service Manual if required.
    • Time required: For an experienced zed owner expect 3 - 4+ hours for a proper job (remember the harder it is for you to install, the harder it also is for a thief to find and bypass).
    Ongoing email/phone support is provided if you require any assistance.



    Ordering and Delivery

    General questions can be posted to this thread or via email/PM. Questions pertaining to how the ZID is designed and installed will not be answered on a public forum and can be directed to me via email/PM. If we don't know eachother, I will require your forum username & email address also before I will provide sensitive technical information. This is purely for security reasons and offering existing and future ZID owners added privacy.

    Confirmed Orders: Please email me ONLY at [​IMG]. I'll start building immediately after payments arrive or from 21/07/2008. (As there is an investment in parts to pre-purchase the materials).

    Payments: EFT, cheque or cash in person (Brisbane only- don't send cash in the mail!) EFT bank details will be provided by reply email.






    Legal Mumbo-Jumbo Disclaimer:
    • No warranties/guarantees are offered should your zed still be stolen with a ZID installed.
    • The ZID is not yet recognised by insurance companies as a valid anti-theft device and for this reason, it is still recommended to also install a commercially available name brand alarm/immobiliser approved by your insurer for primary security.
    • Having said all that, the fact is thieves can bypass a typical name-brand alarm and / or a generic kill switch in less than sixty seconds or just tow your zed away so even expensive systems can be bypassed. The ZID will offer you realistic protection due to the fact that it is self arming (no need to remember to turn it on -just remove the ignition key!), can be located in various places in the zed (which adds to the time taken to locate for a thief), is all black wiring (which makes bypassing difficult even if a thief accidentally finds a ZID wire) and is an uncommon type of immobilisation (which means it is a new style of system a thief has to learn and bypass) ...
    • The bottom line: Professional thieves who want YOUR car will get it regardless of what deterrent you use. Evidence of ANY system (flashing LED etc) will deter probably 99% of joyriders and most thieves looking for an easy target.

    A definite 'must have' IMHO. My ZID was installed with

    a 'mechanic mode' as well as 'normal mode'. Expertly installed by Zed4life for a very reasonable price too :).

    Great to see you back on the forum Mark.

    Hey thanks alot zed4life :D I recived this unit last week and instaled it today.
    The instructions that you provided were very clear and made instalation easy these instructions also provided info on how to remove trim pannels which is very good for people who havent removed them before.

    The actual unit its self works grate and is a simple and easy method in the prevention of a theif stelling the Z. IMO this was money well spent and I strongly advise one as they work with a existing alarma and turbo timers and you can never have too much protection.

    This product is exelent value for money and is much better than just having a random kill switch.

    The thing I realy love about this unit is that it arms its self and the way that the kill switch can be hidden is awsome as it is not a flick switch.

    Thanks alot zed4life ur a champ :D:D

    Another thanks to Mark for this. Everything Mike (WLDTTZ) said x 2. Recieved mine last week but haven't installed it yet.

    I would allow 4 hours to install the unit if you are used to pulling your car apart. Not hard to do, just time consuming removing/replacing the inside bits.
    Shouldn't take any longer, probably a bit less.

    Thanks for the feedback guys

    pls remember (as the instructions state), the more detailed you make the install, the stronger the level of protection. ;) A little extra time taken to properly install once is good practice.

    Installation short cuts = minimised security...:(

    Beware any normal auto alarm installer who suggests my instructions are 'over the top'... they are like that on purpose!

    Hi Mark, I didn't mean to take short cuts, just doesn't take me long to pull apart my car.

    Thanks again.

    No problem Jason!

    I know you didn't mean you take shortcuts! and if one is very familiar with a zed, removing the required interior panels could take less than 15 minutes:cool:.

    I just wanted to ensure anyone else thinking of installing one understood that a well planned installation is just as important as the security device itself regardless of whether it is a ZID or any other system.

    I often wonder why some auto alarm installers offer a high dollar, top of the line unit and then just install it in the usual places then taking short cuts with the wiring. Whats the point!:bash:
