Because the alarm is mechanical, the result of the condition is inevitable. There is no voluntary quality to it. Once she chooses to cross the perimeter, the alarm WILL go off.

In any case, because of this complication, it might not be the best example to use.

The word "hurting" is correctly used here in one of its meanings. Also, the comma is correctly placed. The sentence makes perfectly good sense.
