Can the Ultrasonic alarm be retrofitted?

Hi everyone,
My car doesn't have the ultrasonic alarm and I was wondering if it would be possible to retrofit one?
I saw this online complete with the module.

pretty sure you would need a lot more than just this all the wiring harness and the actual alarm module plus it would need programming into the car one of the biggest problems with retrofits nowadays.

Nowadays, alarms are mostly just softeware anyway.

Probably need a box for the ultrasonic sensors, that connect to the canbus, and possibly an additional horn, but the rest is only software.

Thats the issue you need the VCI codes to programme anything from vauxhall and if they wont give them its a no go.
