Adsl modem and personal alarm query

Hi there, quick question, mum has decided to get broadband and has a modem etc, problem is she also has a st johns alarm through her phone line. My question is does she need to get a technician in to install the modem on a separate phone line or will she be able to get away with using a splitter and filter. The reason i'm asking is a tech guy will run her to $140-00 and she is only on a pension so im trying to make it as cheap as possible for her.

Well I would get them in, and pay for it. As better safe than sorry. Hell why did you even ask

Test it with just a filter. Phone St Johns and tell them in advance of the actual test.

We have one, put in a splitter no issues.
