Turning on alarm from inside?

If I lock the car manually using the lock button on the inside of the car, then get out and close the door, does this engage the alarm?
My wife and I only have one key fob, so sometimes one of us unloads the trunk while the other locks the door manually and then shuts the door. The car locks, but does this also set the alarm? Or does the alarm only engage when you press the "lock" button twice from the key fob, causing the car to make a "beep" sound?
