The Impressive Benefits Of Smart Locks

October 8th, 2019



Many of us are known for misplacing our keys once or twice. In fact, many Americans actually spend a good amount of time searching for their missing house keys. If this sounds like something you find yourself often doing, then smart locks may be the solution you need.

A smart lock system eliminates the need for traditional house keys and goes a long way in improving the convenience, security, and connectivity of your Chico home.

Below, you will find some of the more impressive benefits of having a smart lock system installed at your home.

More Convenience

With smart locks, you can easily prevent lockouts from happening. You can control the locks through an app on your smartphone. Through this app, you can also control any other smart home devices you have in the home.

You will no longer need to carry around a set of traditional house keys because you can lock and unlock the doors remotely.

More Security

With a smart lock system, you are given unique access codes for the system which make it possible to manage and track who is entering and leaving the home. You can even pair this technology with smart doorbells to add even more security and functionality to the home.

With smart locks, you can arm and disarm the security system whenever you need to and also have a conversation with visitors through an intercom system.

Additionally, the system allows you to visually identify who is at the door, and you will receive alerts when anyone arrives at the home.

More Connectivity

When you integrate a smart lock system into your security system, you are effectively increasing connectivity across all of your devices. You can program the locks to work in conjunction with your video surveillance cameras, smartphone, and security alarms.

You can see who is at the door without having to first open it, control the smart lock settings from your mobile device while also receiving alerts if something happens, and you can program an alarm to sound if your locks are tampered with.

Bottom Line

As you can see, if you choose to install a fully integrated home automation system, you are not only providing your home with a heightened level of security, you are also finding much more in the way of convenience when it comes to the system and the connections you create to your other devices.

Smart locks are offering homeowners a better way to monitor and protect their homes and are offering so much more in security and protection for their family.

What Our Customers Say

"I had the Alibi system installed several years ago. It has functioned flawlessly. The image quality is exellent both night and day and in all weather conditions. I particularly like the replay (which can be set at various speeds) and zoom functions of the system. Tech support from Crimefreeliving has been excellent. I have received quick responses to questions, and timely home visits — as when I changed IP carriers and my Alibi system needed to be reset. I have recommended Crimefreeliving to several friends."

Rich

"As a small business owner here in Chico we definitely saw the need for video surveillance. After expressing our needs and concerns Tim did an excellent job getting us set up with the set up with the appropriate equipment. He really took the time to address our concerns in a very friendly, professional and knowledgeable manner. I highly recommend Tim for all of your business and residential video surveillance needs."

Ron H., Owner/Auto Doctor

"I have to say I love having my security cameras at my home. Tim Truby did a wonderful job of installing the five cameras. He is very neat and cleaned everything up after the installation. He explained to me how to operate the monitor, my phone and IPad. However, I have had to call Tim because I'm not tech savvy and forget what he has told me. He usually just helps me over the phone and then all is well. I'm 80 years old and enjoy the comfort of knowing I have these security cameras."

Gloria

"Tim Truby designed and installed a 32 camera system for us here at the Butte County Mosquito and Vector Control District. We had received several other quotes from security system vendors, but Tim’s quote was the least expensive. Tim also installed the system quickly and has always been available when we needed him. We are very happy with our security camera system and we can highly recommend Tim Truby for all of your surveillance system needs."

D. Weseman, Butte County Mosquito and Vector Control District

Crime Free Living updated our old video system with a new 16 Channel HD Alibi Video Security System. The old system had been added onto by different installers which resulted in a cabling mess. There were cables that worked and cables that went nowhere. It was a mess. Tim sorted it all out and installed cameras that are very clear. He also installed a monitor for our cashiers to watch hidden areas, a monitor to watch the entry door, and a monitor that allows employees to watch the outside parking and gas pump area. All work was done on time and very professional! Will always recommend Tim and Crime Free Living.

S. AM PM Chico Arco Station

"I had Tim install an Alibi Video Security System at my residence and a couple business locations. The remote view option is invaluable to absentee owners or anyone who travels a lot. The clarity and quality of the cameras have allowed for viewing employee theft. The evidence provided from the HD video cameras was fantastic! Tim was professional and provided extra value from his law enforcement background."

J. Folsom Arco Station

"Tim, I want to thank you again for doing such a fantastic job on installing a wireless IP security camera system at our dream home. The extra time that you took to hide wires, and install a clean, professional system is much appreciated. I still can’t believe the clarity, quality, and ease of use of this new system. I wished that I would have met you before our original inferior system was installed by another company. Now, whether I am at home, or monitoring the system from around the world, I know that my home and family are safe and sound."

John M.

"In April of 2017, my husband and I made a phone call to Crime Free Living that turned out to be a smart and wise decision. Amazingly, in just a few hours, Tim installed four Dome Security Cameras, weatherproof enclosures, and hooked up into our home a 23" Full HD Widescreen Security Monitor. Even more than his professional expertise was the time spent with us in making sure that this system was working correctly and properly installed on our phones so that anywhere in our travels we can monitor our new home in Magalia."

Tieka and Don S.

"I have been using Crime Free Living for the last couple years ar work and at home and I really recommend this product. Tim is a very good service provider. If he can't figure it out, he's got good tech support with the system that he offers."

Gary D.

"I have known Tim for over 10 years. To date, Time with Crime Free Living has installed two separate surveillance systems for my company. With each system, Tim has listened to my needs and custom dsigned surveillance systems for my specific needs and within my budget. The equipment used is always state of the art, the workmanship is top notch, and Tim is the example of trustworthy. I would recommend him for any job."
