Security Systems and Convincing Your Mother You are Safe

April 26th, 2022

As we grow and become adults and finally move out of the home to be on our own, it isn't just hard on the ones doing the growing up and moving; it is always going to be especially hard on our mothers as well. 

Mothers are always going to worry about their kids and wonder if they are being taken care of and protected. So, how can you assure your mother that you will be okay when you venture out and discover your independence?

The first thing you can do is purchase a video security system to give not only your mother some more peace of mind but also yourself.

Budgeting for Home Security

Moving out on your own can prove to be a costly endeavor, and you are probably going to want to save every penny you can as you get established. So, many people will say that they don't want to spend their money on a security system, and they don't want to incur any additional monthly payments. 

To get around this and even impress your mother, you should find a security system that is affordable and comes with zero monthly subscription fees and no up-front installation costs.

Customizing a Security System

Many Chico security companies allow you to customize your security system. This means you can choose how many security cameras you want for your home and what kind of cameras. You can let your mom know that you chose the most reliable and high definition security cameras that offer infrared and wireless video. 

You can then let her know that you made sure to cover each entry point of your home, including the front door, the back door, and other areas.

You can then show her the crystal clear video when you remotely access your security system from your smartphone or other mobile device. 

The Best Technology

Chico security systems have come a long way in recent years, and they are better and more affordable than ever before. Most systems are completely wireless, which means you can install the cameras and devices anywhere you choose. 

You will get notifications to your phone if anything happens and you can view your security footage in real-time from wherever you want and whenever you want as long as you have an internet connection. 

Smaller Children

Even if there are smaller children that haven't left home yet, you can still benefit from a home surveillance system. Many of them are equipped with front door cameras and other access controls so you will see when your kids get home if you can't be there. This is perfect for those times after school that your kids beat you home.

You will be able to unlock the door for them remotely if they happen to forget their key and you can check in to make sure everything is okay.

Security systems for the home offer many advantages for a family, whether they have a child moving out on their own or one still at home. For more information on the benefits of a security system and how you can customize your own, contact a reliable and trustworthy security company in CA, Chico.

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."
