National Certified Alarms, Inc. (NCA) was started 16-years ago because the owners believed that consumers were paying too much for their alarm monitoring services. Since that time their competitive rate of $9.95 a month has brought in thousands of new customers and helped revolutionize the home security industry. is one of the first security companies in American to do a non-contractual monitoring agreement.
Security System Overview
NCA was one of the first security companies in American to do a non-contractual monitoring agreement. NCA’s philosophy is that if the customer owns the equipment there is no reason it should cost $30 or more a month for monitoring. With NCA, they require that the customer purchase all the equipment upfront and then receive monitoring for as long as they want and can cancel at anytime. NCA can install both hardwired and wireless systems, but if you go with the wireless system the monthly cost for monitoring is $19.95 rather than $9.95. Either way customers are going to pay somewhere around $400-$500 initially and can customize their systems with motion detectors, door sensors, smoke and glass-break detectors, etc.
The key reason to go with NCA is that you are going to save money over the long run. Many other companies will offer “free” or $99 systems initially but then lock customers into 5 year agreements for $40/month or more. With NCA, you pay more upfront because you are buying all the equipment but are then saving money in the long run with a much cheaper monthly agreement.
With an A+ BBB rating and a high satisfaction rating among their customers there is very little to complain about with NCA. However, customers do need to be aware that most costs incurred will be upfront. If new customers are not in a position to front the costs of the equipment in their entirety then this might not be a feasible option.
