How does the Perimeter Alarm work?
I,ve had yet another fall out with the neighbors, last time we fell out they knocked my wing mirror off and tried to smash my car window. Today they got the kids to throw stones at the car, so when I told them to stop it, I got "dont you tell my kids what to do" so I said ""YOU better tell them to stop then". I then got told "boys will be boys". Anyway it ended with them saying "you better watch your back, when my brothers find out"
So just wondered how good the alarm is?
I waited 3 months for this car for these jealous pieces of S*#t to get there kids to throw stones at it, I'm so fed up. Looks like sleepless nights for then few months.

Oh i'm really sorry to hear that. Why are people so jealous. You work so hard for your stuff and then these nomarks want to trash it. I really dont know what to suggest apart from moving house. See what you can find out about getting an ASBO on them. Maybe they have provoked other neighbours.

To answer the original question, the perimeter alarm doesn't work like it sounds like it should, ie be activated when someone gets close. Ford's version of a "perimeter" alarm is that it'll sound if someone opens the door, boot or bonnet or breaks a window, so you won't be warned when someone is close to your car.

Break their noses, its exremely painful, and they won't forget that in a long long time, especially if their nose is deformed for the rest of their lives!

And I thought my neighbours were bad! I've managed to set my alarm off once but only by opening the boot as the car was locking (by accident! :) )

should you not just ring the police next time somrthing happens , certain things can be petty but if they are causing criminal damage ?

it might be the wrong route to go down though?

I would love to do all those nice things mentioned, but last time I had words they ran to the police saying I threatened him. Amazing! they do the damage to my house and car and it's me who has the police round. Anyway car is OK this morning but gate latch has been broken off. It's the weekend I worry about when her brothers are in town, not for my safety but the cars as they like sneaking around at night.

might be worth parking elsewhere and walking a bit to get to it rather then have it outside your door and in eye shot of the neighbours

if you have a video camera you should set up hidden surveillance overnight as evidence

Scum - they should stop them from breeding and that might cut down on their brats running riot!

But make sure it does not cover anywhere outside the boundaries of your property.

True, if its trained on a front gate, it may catch a bit of public property.

But the police will not be too happy if it is intentionally pointing to your neighbours house!!
