Introduction: Simple Security

The device consists of a key fob with a small button magnet. concealed behing a plastic dashboard or door panel is a reed switch. The magnet acivates the switch to enable operation of the vehicle ignition, a solenoid latch or to disable a security alarm. The reed switch activates a relay to switch the higher currents required by the circuit it is controlling.

    My car using this system. And no one know how to use it until i guide them to use it :D . A comercial system though but can be build using arduino based system.

    simple....but efficient thats my style

    Hey, yeah, this sounds like exactly what I am wanting to do for my golf cart at work. . . (other employees keep stealing it and leaving me stranded!) . . . however, I am rather dense when it comes to mods =D I'm definatly looking forward to some step by steps (and make sure they are dummy proof for people like me!!) =D

    What you describe is a cool idea but you might add some pictures of how you mount the reed switches behind plastic panels. Because reed switches are made of fragile glass, they can be difficult to mount. I love the idea behind this instructable but i think if you added more descriptive text and some real pictures it would be even better.

    Chill about tight asses on this because what should have been said is, 'since this is instructables you should have instructions' not a million and one flames at you for having a simple and easy to implement idea, especially if you own an immobilizer already. just move your switch wires and replace with new components.

    This must be some other sort of -able, cause its definately not an INSTRUCTable as there is no instruction. I would call this an "IDEAble" :P Neat idea though... why not build it an dthen post a how-to... sounds like a fairly interesting concept though :)

    Should be to the forums.

    OK I get the point. I'll work up a set of instructions I figured that it would be obvious how to construct but as you point out this is instructables

    well... that's what it's not obviousables either :P For now, I'd make this un-public and then put it back up when its finished/documented (to keep crappy posts from popping up ;) )
