False Alarm

 I tried not to be lazy and did a search for clues before posting on this forum, ...  my Macan S is about 15 months old (and perfect :-) ) but in the early hours of this morning the factory fitted alarm went off, flashing lights and all, .. I jumped out of bed used the fob to turn off the alarm (unlock) and relock/reset.  The rest of the night was incident free. 
 This morning, there is no sign of the car being fiddled with it starts OK and there are no error lights so I assume the cat is still there  ...   the car was locked, all the windows closed and parked in a very private driveway. It had been locked since last being used about 15 hours earlier.  
Has anyone else experienced this with later model Macans with factory fitted alarms ? 
Many thanks

Might just be a faulty sensor.
Guy across form me bought a new company van, with an alarm that just randomly goes off. He was happy to leave it like that, and even went away on holiday for 2 weeks while his van alarm happily went off constantly. Thankfully it's been fixed after some words in his ear. Some people !
