Protecting Your Home With Residential Security Cameras

June 16th, 2021

Homeownership in Chico, CA can be so costly and the only way you can safeguard your property against threats such as thefts is by considering installing security camera systems. Security cameras can be modeled to capture all the vital locations of your home and ensure that hardly anything that takes place in your yard goes unnoticed. Homes which don't have any security camera systems installations are often susceptible to robbery attacks and that is one situation you wouldn't want to encounter. Installing a security camera at your home in Chico, CA can also help to keep track of what happens there when you are away and that is something which is possible since some security camera installations can be remotely and securely accessed.

Tenants too can install security camera systems

If you are a tenant, one person you can best trust with the security of your house in Chico, CA could be perhaps your landlord. However, there are many cases of landlords sneaking into tenants houses when they are away and spy on what a tenant may be having in his/her house. That is one bad situation you wouldn't wish to encounter if you are living in a rented property. Instead, you would only wish to enjoy utmost privacy.

However, some landlords in Chico, CA are so bad to the extent they hardly have time to consider spaces which fall under their control and ones which don't. If you are unsettled that you may encounter such situation, all you have to do is to install a security camera system in your rented house and set the system in a way that you can remotely view any recorded footage. Assuming that your fears are confirmed, you can legally sue your landlord for privacy invasion, trespassing, and other misdemeanors.

You can rely on a security camera system to keep track of any person who enters your house

There are so many things that can go in the wrong direction when you are far away from home. If the landlord is not snooping on you, then your partner may as well decide to cheat on you with another person right inside your house. If you have a security camera installed in your house, you can set time and analyze the persons who may have entered your house.

If your partner is aware that a security camera system is installed in a house you share together, then he/she may deeply consider cheating on you behind your back in your house in Chico, CA. Most probably they may consider other locations and that perhaps is cheating with dignity instead of doing it at the house your share. Installing a security camera in your residential house can thereby ensure that you mentally control the kind of people who enter your home, and it is obvious that persons with clear and respectable intentions won't have any issue with any security camera installation at your residence in Chico, CA.

Safeguard against theft

For persons who are often away from their homes for incredibly too long, the greatest danger their homes face is often theft. Robbers do get confident when they target premises which have no security monitoring. By installing a security camera system at your home in Chico, CA, anybody with intent to steal your property may be forced to think twice since security camera installations are very useful in tracking persons who may have made an unlawful attempt to any home.

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."
