G30 (2017 - Current)
The next generation 5 Series, chassis code G30, arrives at dealers in February 2017. Looking like a scaled down 7 Series and riding on the CLAR platform, the new 5 Series will have a focus on lightweight and sporty performance. Engines options will come from BMW's new B family for the 530 and 540 and a turbocharged V8 for the M550i. Read more about the 2017 5 Series

BMW Connnected App - remote lock / alarm

Hi - Just want to check any other user of the BMW Connected app (V6.2.3.5866) is able to remote lock AND ALARM their car? Remote lock works fine, as does remote unlock, lights.. but it does not seem to set the alarm on.

Thanks !
G30 530d xdrive

+1 Rather weird. Touching the lock spot on the doors locks the car and turns on the alarm. I would have thought that using the lock feature on the phone would have done the same. But it doesn't.

I just tried locking the car with the phone app while the car was already locked with the alarm on. At least, it didn't turn the alarm off.

I'm pretty sure the Connected app "only" locks (alarm not armed) ... unlock works fine too.

Thanks all for coming back on this... yeah it is a bit weird they dont alarm the car as well as remote lock via the app.

Actually, on the bright side, I had reason in the past to just lock my old 2005 535d without alarming the car - for example bringing my dog for a spin and stopping off at a shop for a few minutes (with the windows slightly open, dont worry!). He often set off the alarm! Now I have a way of just locking the car for a few minutes without putting on the alarm!
