Hi guys, just brought a cheap alarm with remote central locking capabilities and plan to hook it up to the EB Series 1 central locking system. My question being is this in fact possible and if so how easy or difficult is it to do? Just really want the convenience of remote central locking. Any help greatly appreciated. Cheerz

I fitted one to a pre smartlock EBII wagon a couple of years ago - not really difficult, if you have some electrical knowledge, and can read a diagram.
Add the immobilisation features - it is worth it, and you can customise/set it up the way you want to.
You can add alarm protection to the boot by running a wire from the boot switch side of the boot light to the drivers side rear door courtesy light switch - add a diode in the line - the interior light and boot should come on when the boot is opened, and interior light only when a door is opened.
This is only needed if the alarm uses the courtesy light switches, and doesn't monitor battery voltage.

Yeah thanks for that mate, i was hoping i hadn't jumped the gun in assuming that i'd be able to tap into the factory central locking. So there is hope yet not too bad with wiring and reading diagrams etc, so gonna give it a shot next weekend. Any idea where i could get ford wiring diagrams, or would a multi meter and some patience do the trick? Cheers

Get yourself a Gregory's EA/EBI shop manual, handy for the diagrams and the other mechanical stuff.
A multimeter would be handy.
Key thing to note is that falcons use -ve triggering for the central locking - your alarm documentation should cover this.
