Call 911 after camera motion alert?

Is there a way I can contact 911 through the app if I get a motion alert from my camera and check it and someone has actually broken in? I turned the alert to text only since even my cat and small dig set it off.

No.  But if you have a cell phone on which you received the alert, could you not use that to call 911?

And if someone has broken in, why did the alarm not go off and result in the monitoring service calling police?

Sounds like the motion sensors, maybe more, are set to silent alert and camera motion alone won't set off the alarm.

So, yeah, dialing a call is what you'll need to do.
