alarm sensor suggestions

I had my python 902 installed in my 99 ga last year by selective sound and its possibly time to upgrade or add scensor.

I don't have a garage so my cars outside all the time I got a pretty nice system that I want to protect.

Since like the other thread my passanger door doesn't set off my alarm and the alarm isn't that sensitive I need to add on to it.

I saw in another thread "cabin breaching" scensors. My first question is what would those include?

What are some of my options?

Should I just put a new unit cuz its fair to say I'm not happy with my 902. The remote sucks doesn't go far ay all. (Inside and outside) and sucks battarys rediulously.

I'm a big fan of proximity sensors, hood pin, second horn, not installing under driver side dash, wiring remote start so that the alarm must work for vehicle to start, and I second the back-up battery motion.

Backup battery is a small drycell that is wired into a control module and your power wire near the alarm. The control module monitors the alarms power. If it is cut, the backup battery allows the alarm to trigger. The module wires into an alarm input. As soon as your power gets cut, the alarm goes off.

how can they get in through the passenger side if your alarm is wired to your interior light? Does opening the passenger door not turn on the interior light?
