No, it IS a security alarm, but like Jan said, it's weak. It's not a motion sensor and only goes off when doors are opened (so if they smash your windows, no luck there). I'm planning to install a viper, lojack, and maybe a brake club as I plan on slappin some rims on soon.clm10k said:i recently installed a compustar FM8000 on my 06 civic. loving it so far. be sure to pay an extra $80 for the battery backup and extra siren. w/out these add ons, the alarm "can" be useless. also, the civic doesnt come with an alarm system. what you get is door locks, thats it. the horn honk sound you hear when you lock your doors is just a door lock confirmation signal..nothing more.
