Car alarms, all sounding off at the same time!

When I was leaving work on Friday walking towards my car, there was a late model Altima a couple of rows away that sounded off briefly then stopped. As I approached my car, suddenly ALL of the cars started to sound off, only for a 20 seconds, then stopped. I have to say it was a pretty odd experience for about 50 cars to do this at once, then stop. I was waiting for a UFO to land! Anybody else experience this and what could possibly cause that? There were no loud sounds, vibrations etc.

Did you look for your cow-orkers watching you from the windows?

Yeah, no "cow-workers" or anything like that, although it would make a funny practical joke! Windows are shielded and the building is too far for a remote to reach most of the cars, not to mention I could hear some cars at the apartment complex across the street going off too.

I am sure it was some sort of electronic signal, just wonder what kind and how powerful it had to be!

Powerful enough that you may want to wrap your testes in tinfoil before venturing out into that lot again...
