This And That About Warehouse Security

April 4th, 2022

Warehouses play a vital role in society today. Various companies, including those right here in Chico, use them to store products, equipment, and more. These buildings have thick concrete walls and sturdy, robust doors to keep the items safe. Some organizational leaders believe these aspects are all the protection they need. However, this kind of thinking can lead to them having to file an insurance claim on down the line.

If burglars believe that there is a buck to be made, they will find a way inside the structure to steal everything but the kitchen sink. Sure, the insurance may cover the losses, but filing the documents can be a difficult task in itself. So, Chico business owners that want to save themselves some headaches should continue reading to learn how a security system can help.

Keep An Eye On Your Employees With Security Cameras

Threats don't always come from the outside. Rather, workers can cause problems too. For one, employee-related theft costed the industrial industry over $15 billion in 2016 alone. Aside from robbery, untrustworthy employees can also make fraudulent injury claims. For example, a forklift operator could be riding around recklessly doing doughnuts only to fall off the unit and hurt their back. He or she might lay in the floor screaming and yelling about how the slipped and fell.

Without footage to discredit the claim, the Chico organization may wind up having to pay out a substantial amount of money in compensation. However, if the company has a crystal clear video of the event, they will have all of the proof that they need to avoid becoming entangled in a messy lawsuit. So, protect yourself and the organization that you worked so hard to build with security cameras.

Consider Adding An Access Control System

Access control provides the building with an extra layer of security. Basically, it is a system that requires persons to enter a PIN or swipe a key card to gain entrance into a particular area. Doors leading to the outside can be protected in this way as well as those inside which protect valuable equipment or machinery. Additionally, due to each employee having their own personal PIN or card, it is easy to keep track of who accessed a particular location at a specific time. In other words, if something comes up missing, owners and managers know where to begin their search.

An Alarm Can Be Helpful Too

A properly functioning alarm is the ideal solution for summoning the appropriate emergency department when an intrusion, fire, or another type of incident happens. Depending on the model chosen, it will either emit a silent alert or a loud noise that the entire neighborhood can hear. The unit can be combined with images from the security cameras to cut down on the number of false alarms reported. Meanwhile, the monitoring station operator can see when the danger is real to get the authorities on the scene quickly. This action will limit the amount of damage that the building sustains or the number of goods that get stolen.

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."
