I actually prefer a short range alarm.  As long as I can unlock it before I get there, that's fine with me.  I rarely unlock it remotely for someone else.  Besides, with all the crap in my pockets (i.e. pda, phone, keys, coins, blah blah), I'm always concerned that I will accidentally unarm it when i'm walking away, or inside a nearby building.  I would love a sliding "off - lockout" switch on the remote.  Regarding the car's sensor: Where is that transmitter?  Can I clip the wire shorter or put an aluminum shield on the reciever??  ;-)
