It is likely that the security system is still working but if you don't pay for the monitoring it will just sound the alarm but not call anyone. If all you are concerned about is scaring off the burglars when you are not at home this may be enough. The house will likely have a brinks sticker on it that will also dissuade burglars.

If you have pets check to see if the sensors are set up to not have the pets trigger false alarms.
