Hi
My dealer tells me I don't need an alarm -- I know they can't steal the car but I'd like an alarm that might keep them from making a real mess. Has anyone added a Toyota alarm -- $249, I think -- to Smart Entry? How does it interface? Are there chirps? Do you have to press a button before entering? I like smart entry and dislike chirps waking up my neighbors when I leave for work at 5 in the morning, but work in a high-crime area.

If you have one of the packages that come with the alarm, you won't. I think they are: 4, 5, and 9. I have a nine, and there is an alarm. A way to check is to roll down the driver window, push the lock button (on the door or the remote) and unlock the car from inside, just manually push the un-lock, don't push the button that un-locks all of the doors. I did that to mine and the alarm went off. Then just hit the unlock button on the remote.
