Interior alarm on Executive?

I was wondering what kind of alarm i have on my Civic Executive. The interior sensors that i see in the manual, are nowhere to be found on my civic. I thought that since it was not on the accessory list and i have the EX, the best possible alarm would be standard. But now it seems i have no inerior alarm? Does any of you guys know what kind of alarm should be standard on an EX?

Yeah, that's what i thought, but nothing to be seen there. A bit disappointing. It's the most expensive version of the Civic and it's not available as an option. Which Civics do have it then?
I don't like the thought thieves can break a window and get everything out of the car without the alarm going off

Just test it.... sit in car, and lock it... after half minute try moving arround, and see if sets off alarm.

The dealer had made that test during handover but I forgot how to turn it off so I cannot make another practice because I don't want to disturb the surrounding..
Will turning the ignition on or opening the lock with R/C turn the alarm off?

The ES and EX models have a Thatcham Cat 1 alarm fitted as standard in the UK.
This includes sensors fittted to the interior light cluster. They shoud look like two little speaker grilles.

I have them, tested them too on my EX.

The sensors are up by the interior light.They look like mini-speakers!

Continental EXs do have an alarm (at least my Luxembourg one does), but it's not a volumetric alarm, only a perimetric alarm connected to the horn.

In practice this means that forcing a door open (or bonnet or boot) will set the alarm off. I assume that breaking a window will not (although I may be wrong on this...) as there are no motion sensors within the car.

Another assumption, this may possibly have something to do with different insurance requirements in the UK as compared to the Continent...?

I'd go test this now but my neighbours wouldn't be pleased, being boxing day and all that. Anyone else had a play?

No, same here. Bet the neighbours won't be pleased, so i'd better try in a quiet carpark soon. But either i have a new type of invisible sensors (yeah right ), or i don't have them at all. My bet is on the latter

alarm.
the ex, as interior and exterior alarm, cat one thatcham.If you sit in car and lock doors set alarm, wait a few secounds move about alarm goes off. If you park up with dog in car you can set just the outside alarm by holding door open lift handle move lock switch to lock position let go off handle close door.this dissables the interior alarm.

According to the specs that i have there is a interior and perimeter alarm (cat 1 ) on all EX models.

easy way to test. Lock car with window open. Wave arm inside after waiting for it to arm itself and the alarm should go off. Have key fob in hand ready to unlock and silence the alarm.

As mentioned, there are 2 sensors in the car at the courtesy light housing.

Could the Eurpean Executive model be the same as in Ireland I wonder.

Here it is simply an SE with Leather, nothing else I think. It is badged as an SE-Executive. The top of the range here is the ES model.

According to the dealer you press the key fob twice to lock and alarm the car, if you press the key fob once you lock the car but it doesnt set the interior alarm so you can leave the kids/dog in there without it going off.

ah, i thought by pressing the lock button twice, you only engage the double locking feature (or whatever honda call it).
I was under the impression that pressing the lock button once sets the alarm (exterior and interior).

hi stu ,can only go off what the saleswoman told me when she handed me the keys, with my old 307 when i pressed the key twice it used to lock and then deadlock then set the alarm, i could do with checking it out to see if the alarm is even working.
