This is a hotly debated topic. The short answer: many alarm companies do not want to support VoIP, which can present considerable obstacles for those turning to VOIP. If you get past that point, you will find some interesting discussions of how reliable VoIP is for this type of communications in this forum thread: VoIP and Burglar Alarms
. It seems that it can be done, but once you're past the technical hurdles you need to decide for yourself whether you want to trust the public internet for your alarm communications.
Additional information to help you make the decision to switch to VoIP can be found in this thread: So you wanna try Voip?
