Motion detectors are available in various forms and are on top of the considerations you can make.

Motion Detector Lights

The most common use of the movement detection devices is the lighting. The motion light detectors are used in different areas due to various reasons. The main purpose of the light motion sensors is to shed light on dark situations. The motion light detectors have been active for several years in revealing the identity of trespassers as they pass near Chico premises at night. Many homeowners have also found them very helpful when entering their homes at night. They help light the way hence avoid cases where you can fall due to obstacles on the way.

There are cases where motion detectors are used indoors. Indoor motion sensors are used in a wide range of applications. They are effective in saving you electrical power. They only light for a particular period when you are in a given room after which they will switch off the light even if you forget to turn off the light before leaving assigned room.

Motion Detector Cameras

They are new cameras, but their use is on the increase. Most motion detectors animals are fitted on stationary objects; there are others which can be hidden in stuff such as animals and similar items to capture unique scenes.

The state of the art motion detectors can capture large areas in Chico, CA. You can as well go for specific modes which will focus more on areas where break-ins are likely to occur. They may be expensive for large homes, but the development can lead to smaller models which will make them affordable to many homeowners.

Motion Detector Alarms

Lights will deter potential intruders. The motion cameras will catch the intruders, but the motion detector alarms will scare away potential intruders. The alarms can alert the authorities who make your family members achieve a high level of safety irrespective of the neighborhoods. It is necessary for you to explain to your children how the devices work so that they will not trip them off and render them less effective in the case of an attack.

How Motion Detectors Work

Most of the motion sensors use a passive infrared construction. An electronic chip in the system sends an infrared signal to the lens. The sensor does not monitor movement but temperature. When a rapid change of infrared energy occurs, the system becomes activated to raise the alarm. There are also other methods available such as radar systems. The radar systems use the technology similar to the one employed by radar guns. Others include ultrasonic systems.

Most systems are easy to install, but you need a professional security installer in Chico, CA for you to have the best system in place.

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."
