Why Security Is Necessary In Today s Beauty Salons

August 8th, 2022

Beauty salons should be places where people of Chico, CA go to relax, revive, and feel refreshed when they walk out of the door. These businesses are often their owners’ biggest investment, and they work hard to please each client that walks through their doors each and every day. A beauty salon in Chico, CA will see dozens of clients walking through their doors each and every day, paying quite a bit for the various services they wish to have performed.

Beauty salons also hold quite a bit of valuable assets, and a single burglary can be devastating to one of these often small and personally owned businesses. In the average beauty salon one can find thousands of dollars in products, equipment, electronics, and cash, making them a desirable target for burglars of Chico, CA or any area within the United States. 

How Beauty Salons Are Protected By Today’s Top Security Technologies

When someone decides to open a beauty salon, they’re often thinking about a lot of things. How will they hire the very best local stylists? How will they acquire all of the equipment they need? How will they attract local customers to come to their salon to become regular clients? One thing the average salon owner isn’t thinking about, however, is security, which should be one of their first thoughts if they wish to keep their business protected.

While a security system is something of an investment, it’s also a worthy one. A few ways security systems protect today’s beauty salons are:

  • They deter burglars – Security camera systems have been proven to be an effective deterrent against burglars. This means that your salon will no longer be an attractive target to those looking to ransack your property, as they would prefer to be able to carry out their crimes without getting caught. If a burglar does decide to break into your salon, they’ll be caught on the camera’s footage, which can then be used as evidence to help the authorities to catch those responsible. 

  • They protect against fraud – No business is immune to fraud, and this includes beauty salons. With the potential for water, hair clippings, or product to be spilled on the floor, they can look like the perfect setting for a staged slip and fall to a person looking to get rich quick. Your security camera system will capture incidents in full, providing evidence should any accidents happen under fraudulent pretenses. 

  • They serve as a training tool – Your security camera footage can also be used as a training tool. If you are looking to train stylists on proper approaches to customer service, cleaning, or other protocol, having this visual aid can be highly effective.

Keeping A Safer Salon For Greater Success 

When your employees and clients know their safety is being taken care of, they’re likely to feel more comfortable and happy in your salon. For more information on protecting your beauty salon with today’s top security technologies, contact us today.

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."
