    "Kill Key" switch

    On the smart controllers like the SS2000, I just cut the trace on the board and install a keyswitch between them which gets mounted on the side of the console. Of course if you are using something other than a relay controlled device, you are better off just putting one of those 200A cutoffs...

    Timers & Battery Draw Protection

    In my installs, all radios and devices with parasitic drain are wired to an ignition sense rail. This has a timer that cuts off the load when the car isn't running for more than 5-30 minutes.
