I'm not sure what you mean by an alarm... The K-Source # KSVS-8 doesn't include anything that would beep as the vehicle is reversing but you could certainly add something like that if you wish.

We carry several different reverse alarms that would sound a loud beep when the vehicle's shifted into reverse. I'd recommend part # PK41820, which has a 97 dB alarm. Installation would be simply, the alarm would mount behind the rear bumper somewhere with only two wires to install. The red wire would connect to the reverse light circuit, the black wire would ground to the vehicle.

I've linked you to an install video that you might find helpful. The video shows the alarm being installed on a different vehicle, but you'll get a good idea of what the procedure involves.
