Secure Your Business During Temporary Closure

January 25th, 2023

When running a company, an owner encounters various challenges. A lot of things happen. Sometimes, unexpected external factors affect the course of business. When this happens, you have to be ready to adapt to the situation.

A Crisis Affecting The World

Perhaps one of the most pressing issues that many people around the world face right now is the spread of COVID-19. Not only does it affect the lives of people, but it also has an impact on businesses. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has set some guidelines for businesses and employers to help fight the outbreak. Aside from this, many states called for the temporary closure of some types of businesses to slow the spread of the virus and implement social distancing. 

Safety And Security

To face this hard time, you have to ensure compliance with the regulations the CA has set. You will also need to consider various possible issues that may occur if you have to close the doors of the company for a long time. One of the things you need to think about is business security. You will have to make sure you can protect your company even when no one is around to look after the establishment.

  • Unplug electronic devices. Before closing the office or establishment, unplug unnecessary electronics. This way, you can reduce the threat of a fire. It will also limit electricity usage.


  • Secure confidential information. If your company handles sensitive information, make sure you put the documents in a safe storage area. You may also choose to take them home for safekeeping.


  • Check all the locks. Inspect all possible entry points. Make sure all locks on doors and windows are working properly. If your company uses an access control system, consider adjusting the schedule for the lock and alarms. 


  • Enable the notifications. Turn on all notifications related to the business security system. This way, you can receive alerts in case there are problems with the HVAC system or if a sensor gets triggered. You should also make sure you have access to the reporting feature of your security system. 


  • Inspect the security equipment. Check if the burglar and fire alarms are working properly. You also need to ensure that nothing obstructs the security cameras. Consider upgrading what you already have. Choose one that allows you to control it remotely. If you do not have a business security system in place, get one. It will give much-needed protection even while you are away from your office or establishment in Chico, CA.

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."
