the oem security sucks bad. it's not sensitive at all unless you lock someone in the car and set the alarm. it doesn't make any noises when you de/activate it (which may be good or bad) and the only way you can set it off is when you bang right in the middle of the window pretty hard (as told by my dealer). So if i were you, i wouldn't get it. just my 2 cents.

For the record, if you get Scion Security from Southeaster Toyota you get a different one that most people (or so I'm told)... like, mine did come with a lock/unlock chirp, a switch to detect whether or not the hood is closed, glass sensitivity detectors, etc. It's really not a bad system at all.

I brought mine to the dealer b/c the sensitivity was too low. I got it turned up to 10 and it is perfect now based on sensitivity. It won't go off when the wind blows, but if its hit or the window is tapped on, it will go off for sure. I think its a good investment considering what it does and it is all part of the same key. I hate carrying around too many things on my keychain! I think it was a good investment.

sorry to bring a post back from the dead...but does the scion security alarm let you adjust the sensitivity or is this another alarm?

The only thing that would make the oem alarm a whole lot better would be shock sensors, because it will only go off once something has already happened to your car. IMO you should get the compustar one. Comes with a pager and all. Their top level alarm's pager will work over a mile away from the car. So even if you can't get back to your car in time to catch the crook, you can at least call the police within 5 minutes of car getting broken into or jacked. This is important because the more time there is between the burglary and your call to the police, the better the odds that the crook will get away.

BTW anyone know of a place that sells add-on shock sensors for the oem alarm? This is my first new car that I've ever bought, so I was didn't know better about oem alarms, and now I'm gonna be stuck with it for a while.

there's two boxes mounted behind your glove box for the alarm.
you would probably have to remove the bolt mounting them in.
one box has a nice little sensitivity adjustment you can turn with a flathead screwdriver.
