Trigger 3001 Six Shooter accessory control system

The Trigger Six Shooter Wireless Accessory Control System allows the installation of electrical accessories without the need to run wires through the vehicle’s firewall. The unit can be mounted in the engine bay or exposed to the elements, and the wireless remote has click-feel switches and can be mounted in the cabin, while RF remote control allows accessories to be operated from outside the vehicle. It is, of course, programmable for security.

There’s also a Bluetooth app that allows users to control functions from an Apple/Android smartphone, such as on/off and dimming functions, as well as flashing when used with LED or conventional lighting.

The Six Shooter features 2 x 30amp, 2 x 10amp and 2 x 5amp circuits, comes with six wiring harnesses with waterproof connectors, accepts 12V and 24V input, and has a built-in Bluetooth battery monitor. It’s covered by a three-year warranty.

RRP: $795 (introductory offer $595)
