Simple (hopefully) question re dome light

I replaced tone of the bulbs in the dome light today & while the dome light was off the car, noticed there was an infrared sensor in it.

Is this part of the alarm system or is the IR sensor for some other reason?

It's the alarm system. It's both a sender (the LEDs) and a sensor and is better than an ultrasonic system seen on other cars.

Cheers
