Try setting the alarm without arming the sensors!
To do this : open door,insert card,take card out,reinsert card and remove,shut door and lock as normal.
This arms the alarm without the sensors. If you no longer get "false" alarms you know its the sensors, if you do then it is probably one of the door/boot/bonnet sensors switches.

It might be that the sensors are too sensitive & not faulty. On a windy day, air coming through the vents can be enough to trigger the alarm, also tiny insects/flies/spiders etc in the car can also set the alarm off.
