It should still work as a local alarm, however if the system is set to
monitor the presence of a phone line then it may indicate/sound a trouble
alert at the keypad, also if it is programmed to send a periodic timer test
then it may sound an alert when it fails to successfully send the test .

I believe that in most cases Brinks retains ownership of the system and they
may, although I don't how likely it is, attempt to recover the equipment
when you cancel service with them.
