Default Alarm for new 2003 Camry

Would installing a car alarm cause any harm to this vehicle
(electrical, etc.)? I'm split on this issue, one friend tells me
not to mess with it, another that it won't harm it at all.
Does anyone here have an alarm installed in their 2003 Camry?

Any help here will greatly be appreciated!

Buy the OEM Fijitsu Ten VIP 3200 --- it works with the
keyless entry and is installed without cutting a single
wire --- it plugs into factory harness. You can get it from
one of the online discount dealers for $240 or so (Jay Marks
or Romania Motors). Aftermarket alarms are often real
problems since they are not installed properly -- they cut
wires and merely tape the connections. Go with the OEM
alarm.

I just use the engine immobilizer in my 2002 Camry LE V6 as enough security.
Why spend $$ on alarms when you have insurance and when they are far better
vehicles the punks can steal then my Camry?

In my area the Camry is the #1 stolen vehicle. I had an after market
alarm/car starter installed for roughly the same price a OEM alarm would
have cost me. OEM doesn't have an impact sensor. Only goes off if the door
is opened. I have had no problems with my Viper 550 ESP since I had it put
in last year (2002 Camry). I don't know if you need the starter portion of
the unit but it gets cold where I am (-50 C), so it would be cheaper for you
for just an alarm.

Forgot to mention I have the keyless entry set up to work through the alarm
remote so you only need one remote.
