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.


Its unfortunate to read your situation. Get some video evidence for future reference.

People like your neighbours should be shot. Let's hope they don't try and break into your car and steal the camera.

sorry I wasn't very clear. The camera is on the wall pointing at the car. I have seen a few micro cameras on E-bay disguised as lighters and !Removed! packets. Am i right in saying the Zetec s comes with an alarm as i can't see a flashing red light. My old Escort zetec had a flashing light and I seem to remember a test button under the bonnet that had to pressed a certain amount of times.

I think our Titanium light flashes underneath the 3 line display, fuel/mileage/out temp etc, in this lil window thing, it also acts as the immobiliser, but don't quote me, I am a girly, and don't do tech things well, lol.

Oh that's alright then. Good ol' floodlights are also pretty good at deterring trespassers. The is a flashing red light under the trip computer, it's in the same place as the blue light for full beams. I'm not sure if that means you have an alarm or not though.

Hope the camera deters them. I will never understand how people get their kicks from vandalism.

i had an cat 1 alarm fitted at my local fords when i got my car (zetec) , the red light under the trip computer is for the immobiliser , i have a seperate light next to my gear stick that flashes when the alarm is activated .

but this could be different if you get it factory built?

No damage on car this morning. Camera caught kids "playing" around the car before school, so at least that works. Her plan will be for the kids to damage car and if I say anything, play the kid card "but they are only kids playing". Wont be long before the kids are playing football in the street around the car. Anyway car does have a flashing red light under the trip computer.

But you are quite right Zippy--it certainly does! ;)
