Voice alarms today accurately announce the alarm as “Fire” or as “Burglary”. The early ones didn’t say Burglary, though. They announced that “You have violated a protected area, leave immediately!”The maid at one client’s home was dusting the keypad and accidentally pressed the panic button. The alarm sounded and the booming voice announced the intrusion. When the client was called to meet the police at the residence, the maid was nowhere to be found.  He went to her house and asked for an explanation. “That man told me to leave, so I did,” she replied. The client said, “she always gave the keypad a wide girth after that!”
