power window modules are to be installed IN SERIES between the switch and the motor. they need to be in series because they monitor how much current is needed to move a motor in a particular direction. If an amount of current is over the limit (ie. the window being fully UP), the circuit breaker will trip and stop the motor from trying to move more (saving the motor from burning out). These modules work just like reverse polarity door locks... if you don't know about reverse polarity, put the window modules down... window motors are costly!

what alarm system do you have?

not using those products. I have all four of my windows controlled by two DEI 530T window automation modules. At 'arm', they all roll up. with an auxiliary channel, I can vent all four windows, or have them roll all the way down.

if you find me the astra 600 and asian wolf install manuals i'll try to help you out.
