electrical accessory's

Hi guys,
I was hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I have added a few accessory's lights, cb and such. I just added air horns. The problem is I put a fuse block off the battery for all the stuff i've added, So the compressor will run even if the jeep is off and possibly drain the battery. so question 1 is there anything out there that I can make my own accessory feed without tapping into the jeeps oem wiring. Question 2 is I remember seeing a voltage sensor that you install before the fuse block so if it falls below a set voltage it shuts off the accessory's until it recharges. If anyone knows where I can find stuff like this or has in idea for me I would appreciate it. Thanks guys

Use a relay attached to a circuit turned ON/OFF by the ignition key to switch your fuse block main power feed. Key off would then be power off.

Use the Google, automotive battery saver modules are commonly available.

If you can get past the price then the sPOD is the easiest way to add aftermarket electrical accessories to your Jeep. Definitely try to avoid tapping into the JK’s electrical system; doing so will give you nothing but grief in most situations.

The sPOD also has a low voltage cutout like you’re asking about.
