Does Any Security System Prevent The Need For A Faraday Pouch/Bag/Box?

Keylocker has 2 options, place key fob in and leave, if the battery gets low then you replace it or a battery emulator, a fake battery with positive and negative wires that gets energized with the disarm command. The box itself is supposed to be a faraday but haven’t fully tested it, I use the emulator. If you are running everything you mentioned then you can’t use a pouch because your key fob is inside the keylocker.
Well, I'm confused; I'm sorry.

I'm still trying to understand the concept of WHY anyone wants to leave their OEM fob in the truck.

If it is because that signal is still needed, then if you put it in the truck with a faraday...OR THE KEYOCKER (if it, too, is a farady)...then what good is having the fob in the truck if it's dead?

I hope this isn't lame, or being answered before. My head is mush from the stress of what's happened to us lately.

The OEM key fob stored in the Key Locker prevents me from having to carry around two (OEM & Compustar) key fobs. I just carry around the Compustar fob.

I think the theory is with igla installed even with the oem key in a secure box in the truck they can’t steal the truck because even with cloning the key they don’t know the pin code to get it to start, and with trying to program a new key the igla blocks that.

For the end user I get the reasoning. The oem key is big enough on it’s own plus any house keys, and then add a bigger compustar fob that you have to carry around on top of that is just too much.
 
Got it...thanks @stubs_78 and @Quietpeen for the info. I kinda suspected that was the case.

Jon (IGLA SoCal) talked to me and supplied me with additional info that...the KeyLocker is all automatic and actually removed the Faraday functioning WITHOUT needing to remove the FOB from it. That was the part I couldn't understand.
 
BTW, just got the truck to safety and into safety; thanks to the great friends at SAINTS OFFROAD!!

I was able to shoot a few more photos to find out where the plastic lock tab came from.

We were BLOWN away to see that these butt-munchers actually must get a bonus for leaving the truck "cleaned up" because they actually put the passenger threshold cover back on...although loosely. When I removed it again...BINGO!

This must be where they disconnected the GPS system. The 'AIRBAG' plugs on the back headliner where just a false lead as they looked for the wires to cut/pull.

We'll know more on Monday after we do the diagnostic scans. I'll report back.

That appears to be the Fakra cables for the CVPM which is located behind that cover. There are some additional cables located there as well. I think the sat/sirius XM module is located behind the cover between the upper/lower glovebox.

Keylocker has a battery emulator, a fake battery the gets power once disarmed. No battery, no signal

Thank you. Sorry I posted this on the wrong thread. Probably seemed pretty random.
 
@Air’d outSRT if you have Igla with compustar/drone why do you have to have a key locker to leave the oem fob in the truck? Truck isn’t starting without the pin,correct?
Some vehicles (rams) you can “technically” leave the fob in the vehicle if you have the compustar/IGLA combo and its installed/setup correctly but others, like my SRT Jeep doesn’t like the fob staying in the vehicle so it ignores it. The only option to not have to carry it is the keylocker. With the combination you still need to have the factory key for the immo start signal.
 
I keep my factory fob in my console safe so I don't need to carry it along with the Compustar remote. Air'd outSRT advised me that you'd rather have the thieves unlock your door by stealing the signal and set off the Compustar alarm than busting your window if that is what their method of entry is. With IGLA, they aren't going anywhere with the truck.
 
For those that are running a faraday, there is a company called Keyshield. I think they’re based in the UK if I remember correctly. They make a very thin flex print circuit board that you fold over your factory key FOB battery. The circuit board senses motion, so while the key is moving it is allowed to send out a signal. After about 20seconds of inactivity, it cuts power from the battery until it senses motion again. So no need for a faraday. I have it on both my factory keys, works as advertised. Just be delicate when wrapping it around your FOB battery on install as it is very thin.

Do you have a link for the correct product? Entering Keyshield and it brings up a bunch of Faraday bags and boxes.
Thank you!
