What happens when an intrusion is detected?
Security systems are designed to perform certain tasks when an intrusion occurs. Your security company reacts in accordance with their offering to you.
If your security system is professionally monitored by an alarm system, they are alerted when there is a breach in a secured zone. The high-decibel alarm that sounds alerts the company, workers, occupants and surrounding businesses. A trained security expert might attempt to communicate with the business owner via the control panel if it’s setup for 2-Way Voice communication.
Communication can happen in one of the following ways:
- Use bullet-points

- Wireless through cellular radio frequencies like a cell phone.
- Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), this doesn’t work in a power outage.

In the event of an actual emergency, the security company will notify the emergency response personnel such as police, firefighters, and paramedics. The monitoring company will also try to maintain communication with you until the emergency response teams arrive.
