Review Last Updated: July 17, 2019

Pros

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.

Cons

With 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.

Our Recommendation

NCA is a great company for anyone in the Southeastern United States who is looking for a great home security system at an excellent price. At around $10/month and no contract, this is one of the best deals on the market today. View more companies


About National Certified Alarms, Inc.

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 up front and then receive monitoring for as long as they want and can cancel at any time. 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.

    I have nothing but positive words for the NCA company as well as Drew, their install technician. They installed at my daughter’s new home recently on my recommendation to her. In the last 16 years, I have been with 3 security companies. NCA is by far the very BEST! No one can touch their price and they are the fastest responders I have ever had. I would highly recommend to anyone, residential or commercial.
