Alarm sounds infrequently for no reason when car is locked.

There have been at least 4 separate days where the alarm has gone off many times in one day.
The first day it was about three times in 2 hours and I thought it may have been interference from something nearby.
The second time 6 times one day in about 2 hours. It was around christmas so no dealer open.
The third time, from 9pm until I got up at 3am to sit in the car and turn the alarm off.
At this stage christmas was over so I left it at the dealers for 2 days and it didn't play up. Took it home and the alarm started within half hour of locking the car.
I went to work and parked the car. I was out all day and I had 4 phone calls from people at work saying the alarm had been going off all day. When I got back I turned it off 6 times in half an hour.
I took it back to the dealer and left it. It's been there over a week now and I have a loan car while they are waiting for Chrysler to get back to them.
The dealer has no idea but are trying to help me.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

I have a '14 grand cherokee. I spoke to jeep and the dealer and they tell me they have no solution yet. At lest the alarm is going off for them now. They have had the vehicle there for a week now.
Thanks for the info about reprogramming the alarm.
