Security Protections For A Multi-Site Business

October 30th, 2020

Owning a multi-site business in Chico provides a variety of unique challenges. Protecting multiple sites on one system requires a high degree of security expertise to design a customized system that meets your needs. However, there are some standard security protocols and features that all multi-site businesses utilize to maintain uniformity and stay protected. If you are looking for ways to protect your multi-site business, here is what to consider.


Access Control


When you have multiple buildings, it’s hard to control who comes and goes. However, this process can be fully automated with an access control system. Access control systems use keycodes, cards, and even bluetooth enabled smart devices to allow exit and entry. You can assign permissions based on role and ensure that only authorized staff are entering protected areas. Some of these systems even keep a thorough log of the comings and goings of your staff. That way you always know who is on your properties without having to physically be there.


Video Security


Video security technology has advanced at a lightning pace. It is now easier than ever to monitor the video feed of multiple locations from one hub. These systems can be designed and fully integrated, so that you can watch your feeds side-by-side on the same monitor. If you add remote monitoring features, you can even watch your feed live from anywhere in the world. All you need is an internet connection. This is especially ideal if you don’t just have offices in CA, you have locations in other states around the country.


Alarm Systems


Alarm systems can also be fully integrated across multiple locations. These can be tailored to the unique features of your properties to ensure the protection they need. However, they can all be directed to the same monitoring station for fast response to any emerging threats. Alarm systems can also be implemented on different areas within your business. For example, if you have a storage room with high value assets, you can set up an alarm specifically on that room. When this alarm goes off, it will notify your security response team the same way a front door alarm works.




Automation features can really make managing the security of multiple sites easy. As the name suggests, automation does tasks automatically rather than manually. With automation, you can turn lights on and off, lock all the doors at the same time, and control the temperature of all your buildings. Automation doesn’t just make your buildings more secure, it also makes managing your multiple sites more streamlined and simpler.


Work With A Security Professional


If looking to secure your multi-site business, you need to find a licensed security professional that specializes in business security. They are familiar with all the security features and protocols your CA business needs to stay safe. They will custom design a system and train your staff on how to use it. That way no matter where an incident happens, you can respond quickly and effectively.




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."
