I’m looking for a “time delay start relay”


I have my aftermarket alarm connected to a relay so when I click the remote to Lock, Unlock or the alarm rings the siren activates .


I want to have a 10 second delay that the siren will only activate one the alarm rings for 10 seconds or more, not every time I lock and unlock the car.


Any ideas what I could use ??

This is what I use: It's a Universal Trigger Module.

I programmed this module for option #11, which is designed to produce a constant output trigger after a predetermined count of input pulses. I tied it's input into the flashing light output of the after market alarm, and programmed it to look for 5 pulses from the flashing light output before it triggers the siren. When it sees less than 5 pulses, such as one to lock and two to unlock, it doesn't activate and trigger the siren, but when it sees 5 pulses, such as the alarm going off, it activates and triggers the siren.


Programming this modules is a little confusing with the directions because it can do so many things, but when you get it down, it works like a charm.


If you're interested in one, I have one available, new in the package, for $20.00 PayPal, shipped.
