Client Profile: APEX 3 Security

APEX 3 is a security company that is in charge of patrolling the Illinois Institute of Technology Chicago, IL campus. Their fleet of vehicles is used for emergency management, campus safety, crowd regulation, and general campus control. They found Wicked Warnings after previous research proved, “existing companies lacked customer service and the skill level required”, said APEX 3.APE

APEX 3 Security: Consultation

Our consultation process with this client was simple and straightforward. We conducted interviews to discover what a day on the job was like, and what kind of equipment was necessary. By working closely with this client and listening to their specific needs, our Wicked Warnings team was able to create a competitive custom package. An APEX 3 member recalls his experience with Wicked Warnings stating, “Not only did George offer several different options when it came to the equipment selection, George was able to offer an unbeatable price that fit our budget”.

APEX 3 Security: The Build

The design for this client included several of our Wicked Warnings products as well as a few custom ordered items, with a green and white color scheme. One specific request for this project was for minimal damage to the vehicle when installing. We were able to accomplish this, and you can see how in the video below. A few of our Wicked Store products used in this project include:

When the APEX 3 members presented the newly up fitted patrol car to their team, they told us, “Everyone found the new patrol car to be WICKED! We look forward to using Wicked Warnings to complete the up-fit to the remainder of our fleet ASAP”.

Check out the video below to see our custom design in action. You can find all these products and more in our Wicked Store.

Video Demonstration of Wire Swap Installation for Auto Flasher Kits - Molex Connector Pin Removal & Replacement

What are the Wicked Auto Flasher Kits & how do they work?

Wicked Warnings has been around since 2005 with stellar references and we have been using our WAF (Wicked Auto Flasher) module since early 2016 with zero reported vehicle failures. There is no known risk to using any factory lighting as flashers that we are aware of. Of course, all your factory lights will always revert to factory function when the strobes are not being used.

Many of our builds feature a combination of factory lighting as well as purpose-built emergency lights to create a more effective display, so we urge you to consider more than just factory strobe lighting on your build. We have many options available to supplement the factory lighting.

How does the Auto Flasher connect to my truck anyway?

We have 3 connection methods used in our WAF (Wicked Auto Flasher) kits. The way that we manipulate the factory lighting is through the wires. We DO NOT reprogram any of the computers. Everything we do is easily reversible, and any number of individual kits can be combined onto a single switch if desired. There is no single kit to flash all factory lights, as we must retain circuit individuality. The following three methods are used to interface with the factory wires.

  • Wire Cut: In certain lights, like the white cargo light by the third brake, the only way is to cut a single wire (at this time). We understand that some people are uncomfortable cutting wires and we are working hard to offer “cut-free” solutions as fast as we can. This is how some of the current website kits are sold. Sometimes, this is the only option to achieve the desired display.
  • Wire Swap NO CUT: This is by far our favorite solution and how most of the new generation kits will be made if possible. Wire Swap is how ALL the Headlight and Taillight kits are going to be made for the FORD and many GM trucks. We are working to update the current website options to this new “wire swap” kit and will continue noting any changes on the product online as they happen. It really is just as easy as swapping a wire. Again, the kits will have notes in the description stating which version they are. Click here to watch a video showing the Wire Swap method.
  • (NEW & COMING SOON) Plug N Play Extensions: Plug N Play extensions can be purchased for an extra cost. Please bear with us as these are all handmade and fairly difficult to source parts for. We have some availability and are waiting on some parts for others.

We hope this helps to answer any questions about our Auto Flasher Kits and hope you enjoy these products!
