Any sort of home invasion where someone doesn't want to make noise? The deaf/mute community has also been pushing for this for a while. The fact of the matter is that this is great simply because it gives another option to contact emergency personnel when the standard voice call may not be an option or may be a poor option.

Also, the system is set up such that a 911 SMS receives the same priority as a call to 911, so unless the PSAP is overloaded there will be a response.
