About Your System
The ScyTek Vision Guard 8000 is a combination vehicle security and remote starting system featuring a
built-in "ScyNet Network Port" that allows direct connection of optional accessory modules and a PC
interface offering expanded system operation. With proper installation this system will provide superior
protection and performance for many years to come.
The VisionGuard 8000’s built-in remote start feature is designed to offer maximum convenience by remote
starting your vehicle’s engine, turning on the heater/air conditioner, and then running for a pre-determined
time to provide a comfortable environment once you enter your vehicle.
To ensure the safety and security of the system while it is remote started, the VisionGuard 8000 employs
several safeguards. In the event the alarm is triggered while the engine is remotely running, the remote
start will immediately shutdown to prevent unauthorized users from attempting to drive the vehicle. The
system is equipped with a hood pin input to prevent access to the engine compartment while the vehicle
is remotely running. The Valet Mode prevents the remote start feature from operating in the event the
vehicle is to be serviced. Finally, the brake pedal also acts as a safety by shutting down the remote start
when pressed.

System Operation
Remote Arming
The system monitors 5 independent areas (zones) while armed: doors, hood/ trunk, shock sensor, optional
sensor input, and the network port for future expansion.
To Arm the System:
1. Turn off the ignition.
2. Press and release Button 1.
· The siren will chirp once.*
· The doors will lock.
· The parking lights will flash once.
· The LED will turn on red, to indicate the starter defeat is active.
3. 10 seconds after Arming:
· The LED will start blinking to indicate that the doors, hood, trunk and sensor inputs are being
monitored.
* During Arming, if the system detects a bad sensor or an open zone, the system will chirp 4 additional
times and ignore that input, but keep all other areas protected.
Once Armed, the alarm will trigger when any of the following occurs:
· The doors are opened.
· The hood or trunk is opened.
· The shock sensor detects an impact to the vehicle.
· An optional sensor is disturbed.
When the alarm triggers, the siren will sound, the horn will honk, and the parking lights will flash. If
the system is triggered by the doors, hood, or trunk, the system will alarm for 45 seconds. If triggered
by the sensor inputs, the system will alarm for 30 seconds.
In the event the alarm is triggered and remains triggered continuously by the same sensor or input
during a single arming cycle, that sensor or input will be automatically bypassed until the next time
the system is armed.
If the Shock Sensor detects a light impact to the vehicle the siren will chirp 5 times as a warning
indication.
Remote Disarming
To Disarm the System:
Press Button 1.
· The siren will chirp twice.*
· The doors will unlock.
· The parking lights will flash twice.
· The dome light will turn on.

Silent Arming/Disarming
The VisionGuard 8000 system can be programmed to operate the system without Arm and Disarm chirp
indications. When programmed for full-time silent operation, the siren will sound only when the system is
triggered.
The system is also capable of temporary silent operation if desired. Pressing the Shift or “C” button before
Arming or Disarming the system will bypass the chirp confirmations and allow one-time silent operation.
Note: The open zone warning chirps will not be bypassed when the system is Armed or Disarmed silently.
Passive Arming
When programmed for the optional Passive Arming feature, the system arms itself automatically, each time
the ignition is turned off and all of the doors, hood, and trunk are closed.
To start the Passive Arming Process:
1. Turn off the ignition.*
2. Open the door and exit the vehicle.
· Once all doors are closed and the dome light is off, the LED will begin flashing rapidly.
· The parking lights will flash twice indicating the Passive Arming sequence has begun.
3. After 30 seconds,
· The siren will chirp.
· The parking lights will flash.
· The doors will lock.**
· The status LED will begin flashing.
4. The system is now armed.
** If the Passive Locking feature is selected.
The system can be programmed to provide an Entry Delay when the system is armed passively. Upon
opening the door the siren will chirp for 10 seconds allowing time to enter the vehicle and turn on the
ignition before the full siren output is triggered.

Verify vehicle is equipped with electronic fuel injection, and starts/idles normally before installation.
Determine if vehicle is equipped with a factory theft deterrent system and obtain proper bypass module
if required.
5. Find a location to mount the hood pin switch that will not interfere with the opening of the hood, and
is not in a position that can accumulate water. The hood pin is a safety device that must be installed
to avoid remote starting during engine servicing.
6. Verify with the owner, the mounting locations for all visible components, including the LED and Override
switch.
7. Verify with the owner, the optional features of the VisionGuard 8000 and the features that must be
programmed during installation.
8. Inspect and perform a function test of all vehicle systems before and after the installation.
9. Always use a Volt / Ohm meter for testing vehicle circuits. Never use a test light.
10. Always look before drilling any holes or mounting self-tapping screws. Be sure fuel lines and exterior
wiring looms are clear as they are often close to the chassis and difficult to see.
11. Protect all wires running from the engine compartment to the interior of the vehicle by covering with
electrical tape and split loom tubing. Be sure to use a grommet when routing wires through the
firewall.
12. Properly fuse any additional accessories such as window modules, door lock actuators, etc., making
sure to power them separate from the alarm module. This will ensure the functionality of the security
system in the event of an accessory failure.
Page 16 VisionGaurd 8000

air vents, seat rails, etc.
Do not mount the control unit until after setting the internal jumpers and performing a complete
operation check of the system. After installation is complete and performance verified, the control unit
can be easily mounted using wire ties through the mounting tabs on the bottom of the unit.
Mounting the Siren
Choose a siren mounting location that is away from heat sources such as exhaust manifolds, and
where it cannot be easily accessed from underneath the vehicle. Be sure to face the siren downward
to prevent the collection of water in the siren’s housing.
Always route all wires from the engine compartment into the interior of the vehicle through a proper
grommet.
Mounting the Shock Sensor
Choose a suitable interior mounting location for the shock sensor that provides ample coverage of the
vehicle. Keep the sensor away from the vehicle’s ECM or other sources of electrical interference.
Suggested mounting locations include air conditioning ducts, dashboard braces, or center console
supports.
During proper operation, the shock sensor will detect impacts to the vehicle only and will not usually
be triggered by slow rocking movements of the vehicle like those caused by wind.
