4 Reasons Daycare Facilities Need Cloud Surveillance

July 24th, 2020

Cloud video surveillance offers the daycare industry a simple way to improve its security, liability, and compliance challenges with an ultra-secure off-premise solution.  This can lead to stronger teams, simpler security operations, and more profitable business. This blog post will cover four main cloud advantages for multi-site, multi-user applications.

Benefit #1: Cloud VS Offers Easy Multi-User Management

Cloud video surveillance lets you easily create an unlimited number of users, assigning each person a unique login and password. A new user setup literally takes just a few minutes each. When students or teachers leave your facility, removing users is done simply with the click of a button.

Unlike on-premise solutions that require you to budget how many users and locations you need at the time of install, Cloud VS doesn’t have a limit of sites, cameras, or users. From a channel count perspective, it’s essential to have the flexibility to add cameras over time. Cloud VS makes it easy to scale up – add unlimited cameras, users, and storage as your business grows. Best of all, you only pay for what you need, which is all included in your monthly subscription.


Benefit #2: Cloud VS Offers Permission and Viewing Management

Privacy is an important part of any daycare, and parents should only be able to see the rooms that their child is in during the day and not others. With Cloud VS, you can assign each user-specific permissions by a camera, by day, by daypart to optimize their ability to watch their child, but not giving them access to rooms or parts off the facility that do not apply. It’s simple to set up and customize for each individual user – and it’s all done with the click of your mouse.


Benefit #3: Cloud VS Provides Unlimited Users, Unlimited Viewing

A typical daycare may have one hundred parents (or more) checking in on their children via remote access. This is very hard to do with an on-premise system, especially if one hundred parents try to log in to the recorder at the same time. All those requests require bandwidth to be pulled one hundred times from your site, which your system may not be able to support.

Because each user is viewing the video from the Cloud, you can have unlimited viewing sessions at any given time. The robust, T4 data center handles bandwidth seamlessly, and because the video is being viewed from the Cloud, you eliminate typical bandwidth problems that are present with traditional, on-premise systems. Compared to a traditional system that requires you to add a recorder in every location, Cloud VS stores, and securing your data evidence off-site, providing unlimited users and con-current streaming from a centralized location. Cloud VS removes the burden and complexity of accessibility challenges, with a more secure solution!


Benefit #4: Cloud VS Presents Liability Coverage in the Cloud

Daycare facilities can often become a high-risk liability without a secure video surveillance solution in place. With an off-site cloud solution, daycare owners have the peace of mind of uninterrupted, continuous 24/7 recording. Stored in the Cloud, they can control how long they want to access their footage so that when they need to retrieve video surveillance, they can get it.  This is particularly important when an incident occurs on-site, or their business is audited, and compliance guidelines require them to have immediate access within a disclosed period of time. With Cloud VS, download your data by event, date, or time to your smartphone and send it to parents or authorities within minutes. All footage is triple redundant copied in the data center, so you can be sure it will always be there when you need it.

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."
