Is battery life reduced drastically due to installation of autocop or any other car security system ?

Thanks

The battery life is not reduced due to security systems although the life will get reduced by 1% !

Default Battery life reduced due to security systme

Hi
I work for Amaron and with my experience in batteries, there is a permissable leakage in all cars which is as per standard which is 100ma (Milli amps) and if checked with a Multimeter in Current mode it should show below the above parameter, if its beyond that there is draining of the battery...There are other symptoms apart from Security system they are:
1. Trunk light switch failure - The light inside the trunk keeps glowing without our knowledge draining the battery
2. Side repeator wire chipped due to rodents which is common in India, due to vibration the wire rubs the fender panel
3.Improper earthing.
4.Alternator wire becomes hard due to heat & resistance becomes high reducing life...
