Perimeter alarm?

Hey everyone.

I just bought a new 2008 focus. One of the features that I liked was the perimeter alarm. My other car has a perimeter alarm, and any time someone bumps the car or tries to open it, the alarm goes off.

The other day, someone slammed into my new focus in the parking lot and took off. When I went to my car, I approached by the drivers side, got in, and drove away. The next day is when I noticed the damage on the passenger side. I only knew it happened the previous day as someone reported it in the parking lot to security.

In any case, the alarm in my focus did not go off. In my other car, if the alarm goes off, it beeps 4 times when I disarm. Without this beeping, I didn't even think to check for damage.

Is there something wrong with my alarm? I am sure that I have the actual perimeter alarm, and not just the anti-theft... Any help would be appreciated.

As far as I know, it only goes off if someone breaks in or if you open the doors after you have set it. . I have an 07 and I can rock it up and down and t won't go off.
