    Hi folks,

    I've made several posts talking about my plans to make an easy to use and install Pedestrian Horn for any Tesla or really any EV. Well, it's finished!

    It's a self contained audio effects generator with 8 separate channels (i.e. 8 sound effects) triggered by a 433mHz remote. Installation doesn't require any splicing, wiring, or soldering (unless you choose the hardwired option). Installing into a Model S or X frunk should take about 15 minutes (install photos and video coming soon!). The entire unit is easily and totally removable if/when needed. You can even program your Homelink buttons to trigger any of the sounds.

    Prices (including shipping within the U.S.) are:
    • $160 complete assembled kit, ready to install
    • $120 PCB+Parts kit -- you assemble it
    • $55 PCB only. You supply all the parts and assembly
    For outside U.S. shipping costs, please contact me at: [email protected] and we can make custom arrangements.

    NOTE: I know the idea of a 'pedestrian horn' is controversial. This thread is to discuss this product and not to argue if such a device is good/bad/needed/not needed. Please take those discussions elsewhere. This thread is for people who are interested in adding such a device to their car.

    All the details and how to order are here: EV-Horn Pedestrian Horn

    This device can also be used anywhere you need a remote sound generator for sound effects or Cosplay/wearables, props, toys, games, Halloween, etc. There are endless uses and only requires a 5v Micro-USB power source.

    Here are some photos:

    I'll look for good samples of those and add them as downloadable options.

    I'll also add the "bicycle spoke cards" sound as well.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Just got mine in the mail today.
    This is a terrific realization of an excellent idea.
    Clever, elegant unit. Easy to following instructions.
    Amazing customer service too! Thanks EV-CPO
    Time to order one for home/work too. FUN!

    Thanks for the feedback!

    It's really be fun to put this together.

    I tried to find and add "bicycle spoke cards" but nothing I did really "sounded" great. But I'm open to any other ideas for sounds to add to the library.

    Also a little hint -- I have another little project in the works... but not for sounds. When all the parts arrive, I'll announce it. :)

    I am trying to install a unit in the Model X.
    Does anyone have some advice as to how to route the micro USB cord into the frunk area from the cabin?

    Much thanks!
