An external sounder (bell box) to be compliant to the current standards means that it can only ring for 15 minutes to avoid any nuisance to your neighbours. An internal sounder will ring for 30 minutes before the system automatically resets itself. The alarm will only ring for a pre-programmed length of time before silencing and re-arming itself. If you are there you just enter your code to stop it.

When entering the property typically you will have between 20-30 seconds to reach the keypad and unset the alarm system.
