1. Pay your current alarm service and receive nothing.
2. Pay your current alarm service and respond yourself.
Potentially dangerous as the police may think you are the criminal, if they observe you at the location. Recommend you run this by an attorney that is knowledgeable in this area of the law. Additional life insurance is not a bad option either. You pay the Alarm Company, you do the work, and you take the risk!
3. Cancel all alarm service and simply resign yourself to being burglarized.
