Daycare Surveillance in Your Community

July 14th, 2022

As a parent, you want to feel safe and secure when you drop your child off at daycare. You don't want to feel any apprehension when leaving them, so you want to make sure that the daycare you use is up to date on their security measures and are able to offer ultimate protection and care for your little ones.

Surveillance cameras are just one way this can be accomplished. Not only do they increase the security of the Chico facility, they also allow for better visibility for the parents and even more in revenue streams.

Enhanced Security

The safety of all the children, as well as the staff, should be the number one priority in any daycare facility. When video surveillance is used, it can help increase the overall quality of care that is given while also greatly improving its security.

Surveillance cameras in daycare can deter and detect intruders and threats, ensure proper childcare efforts, document disputes and problems that may arise, and send alerts when motion is detected in any restricted areas.

Having this level of security is also very appealing to parents and provides the daycare with an advantage that puts them ahead of their competition.

Parents Have Improved Visibility

Some parents feel very anxious when dropping their children off at daycare. However, when you install these security cameras, you can provide them with the peace of mind they need as they go off to work.

Daycares with surveillance systems can allow parents to view the footage in real-time. They are given customized remote access logins, and they can use this to peek in on their kids whenever they want throughout the day.

This kind of system also allows the parents to gain valuable insight into how their child is being cared for in their absence. It also gives them the chance to see milestones they may otherwise miss.

Increase Revenue Streams

Installing a surveillance system like this is definitely an investment; however, it does end up paying for itself in the long run. You are effectively increasing the visibility and security of the daycare while also adding an additional stream of revenue.

Many parents are willing to pay the monthly fees so they can access the real-time video footage. So, the daycare can charge their own fee for creating the customized accounts for each parent, and this can successfully drive ROI on all the equipment that was purchased and is being maintained. It is also considered a premium service that some daycares offer, and this is what can set them apart from other daycares. When a parent can keep an eye on their child after dropping them off and have that peace of mind, they are going to be willing to pay for it; thus creating an additional stream of revenue for the daycare.

In turn, the daycare can continue making improvements and adding more security solutions down the road as the needs of the parents, staff, and daycare change.

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."
