The Benefits Of Doorbell Security Cameras

June 21st, 2022

More and more people are installing security cameras at their front doors these days to improve the security and protection of their Chico home. Not only does it go a long way in securing the property, it is also a convenient solution to use.

Below, you will find a few of the bigger benefits of having doorbell security cameras installed at your home.

Deter Crime

Doorbell cameras and other security cameras are great deterrents when it comes to crime. The cameras serve as a visual warning to potential intruders. Most of the time, when they see the cameras, they will move on because they do not want to risk being caught on camera breaking the law.

These cameras are also good to have if you have packages delivered to your home. With the holidays just around the corner, more people are ordering items online and having them delivered to their home. Unfortunately, we can't always be home to welcome every delivery.

The doorbell cameras help ensure that the package stays where it belongs until you get home to retrieve it. The doorbell camera will show you when the package is delivered, who is going to your door, and if someone attempts to steal your packages.

With high definition resolution, you will have a clear image that can help law enforcement in case there is an incident at the home.

See Who Is at the Door

With doorbell cameras, you can see who is at the door without risking your safety to open it. Along with video footage, many of these systems also come equipped with audio control through an intercom so you can interact with whoever is at the door without opening the door. This is a great safety feature for those who are home alone or if they feel something is suspicious.

They can also work at night with infrared and LED technology and night vision capabilities and they can still capture high-resolution footage at any time of the day or night.

Increase Home Value

With advancements in technology, smart homes are becoming more and more popular. They are not only convenient for homeowners, but they also improve the safety and security of the home as well. All of these factors make the home much more attractive to potential buyers.

Bottom Line

Having the right surveillance in place for your home is essential to doing everything you can to protect your investment as well as protect and secure your family. Doorbell cameras are a great option and can prove to be just as beneficial as the rest of your security system.

If you have children that get home from school before you make it home, it is also a good way to see that they made it home safely. You will also know if anyone goes to the door when you are not there and can offer your children more in the way of safety and protection this way.

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."
