Alarm systems are both proactive and reactive elements of an overall security program.
They are proactive by notifying criminals that your property is being monitored. Thus, those criminals will likely leave your property alone.
If there is a breach of security, an alarm system becomes reactive. What happens at that point depends on how you programmed the system. When you set up your security monitoring system, you determine who will be notified when the alarm is triggered. Businesses will often set up a chain of command, so if one person cannot be reached, someone else is available to respond to the alarm. Those calls can go to your business, to another branch of your business, to your home or the homes of management, or to cell phones.
The level of response from the authorities will depend on the regulations of the municipality your property is in.
