Audio of a distant car alarm going off around 3AM - convenient given that 3AM is one of the quietest hours to record during. Reduced irrelevant frequencies below 1kHz. The recorder was approximately 75 meters from the car.

    Thanks for the good sound. We intend to use it in one of our new products ---- shared motorcycle. But it is still being produced and do not have a name for now. But we will surely give attribution to the source. Thank you again!
