Alarm sensor

The factory alarm keeps going off for no reason and it's very random. I don't have an actual alarm, it has to be some sort of standard option from Porsche. Where can I find the sensor for the alarm?

There are mulitple sensors; however, the factory alarm system saves the last ten alarm incidents in memory. Use a Durametric software system, or the factory PIWIS to download them and you will know exactly what is triggering the alarm...............

I think the owners handbook lists all the elements covered by the alarm. The glove box, doors, front and rear trunk and hood all have sensors . If these trigger or if you have the interior microwave sensor mounted in the overhead console they can set off the alarm randomly.
