4 Advantages of Cloud Surveillance For Your Healthcare Organization

August 5th, 2020

Healthcare facilities face significant security challenges that aren't always met with an on-premise system. From protecting patient medical records/confidentiality to overseeing employee activity and patient care, Cloud Video Surveillance offers a streamlined and straightforward way to secure the quality, safety, and well-being of your single or multi-site healthcare organization.

Cloud Benefit #1: Uninterrupted 24/7 recording – Hospitals and urgent care centers in operation 24/7 need reliable, continuous video surveillance. The level of risk associated with your healthcare facility's day-to-day operations can be mitigated with reliable video surveillance. The advantage of cloud surveillance is your footage is stored in an off-site Tier-4 data center for as long as you need it. Use cloud-enabled cameras for uninterrupted coverage of critical areas like medical supply closets, pharmaceutical dispensaries, and check-in areas/waiting rooms.

Cloud Benefit #2: Easy Multi-User Management - From single site treatment facilities to multi-site hospital organizations, Cloud video provides flexible user management for viewing live and recorded video - lessening the burden on internal IT resources. Limiting access to cameras is simple with the Cloud and gives you complete flexibility to protect patient confidentiality while maintaining important video evidence. As your organization changes, you can easily add or delete users on-demand from anywhere at any time.

Cloud Benefit #3: Triple Redundant Storage for Compliance - Healthcare facilities may be required to store video at an off-premise data center to comply with healthcare or government regulations. Unlike a traditional system that streams data directly from your site, Alibi Cloud VS provides unlimited users with triple-redundant, high-resolution video surveillance that’s pulled directly from our ultra-secure, off-site tier-4 data center. Compared to a traditional system that requires you to add a recorder in every location, Cloud allows you to store and secure your data evidence off-site, providing unlimited users and con-current streaming from a centralized location.

Cloud Benefit #4: Complement an on-premise system with Cloud – From hospitals to urgent care offices and mental health treatment centers, the healthcare industry presents multi-faceted security risks. By adding cloud-enabled cameras to high-risk areas, you can protect the overall safety and security of: 

  • Patients, visitors, and staff
  • Theft of personal and hospital property – including prescription medication and valuable equipment 
  • The sharing of sensitive patient information

With a simple plug-and-play deployment, add Cloud cameras to complement your existing on-premise system for redundant footage. Extra coverage on your highest-risk areas makes sure you have the critical video footage you need. Unlike an on-premise system that requires users to be on-site to log into their network (multi-site locations can make this a cumbersome task), a hybrid cloud solution allows users the flexibility of being anywhere to view footage and achieve central management of an entire healthcare organization.

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."


"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."


"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."
