Diy car alarm question

I know the best way to keep things safe in a jeep is to not keep things of value in there in the first place or lock them in a box. But I've got some things like speakers in the doors,sound bar, and a few other things that are just not really lockable.
So, is it possible to get pin switches on the doors and hood and wire them to the horn somehow? like the fuse or relay, so when the door is opened the horn will go off. Of course you would need an on/off switch somewhere too.
I am no wiring whiz.

They make proximity alarms

I wired my hood and got a lock for it. Didn't bother with pin switches and removed my prox after getting complaints from neighbors because it went off whenever the wind blew.

Any cheap alarm will do the trick and they're easy on the old jeeps. Anything from DEI would be my suggestion. Avital, python, viper, etc. you won't need relays if you use the included siren but will with your horn. Which is not included. No relays for pin switches unless you want to diode isolate the switches which will also not be included.

You can use generic door switches with any basic alarm system. Just install them to open when the door is closed and contact when the door is open... Most aftermarket alarms are wired into the dome light circuit because that is triggered my any door opening. In a jeep, you will just have to contact all the doors with a switch
