As a simple test of the alarm via its ultrasonic function, you could wind the driver's window down and lock the car.

Leave the key about 10 yards away from the car, (as the car may detect the radio transmissions/proximity of the key and inhibit the alarm operation).

Wait for about 1 minute, or until the red dashboard alarm/immobiliser telltale light starts to slowly give brief flashes.

Stick your head through the open window.  (An arm, or even a leg, should work just as well here.)

At this point the alarm should sound etc., so get the key and unlock the car on the remote fob to stop the alarm.

HTH

Edit. going to confirm this information, so i have removed it

 

If you want more security get a Thatcham 2-1 plip alarm that will add an extra immobiliser circuit, ultrasonics and tilt sensor you can also add a break glass sensor/microwave sensor
