Be Safe Anywhere You Go with Portable Home Security Alarm Systems

February 1st, 2021

With the increasing number of theft cases and other crimes committed in the country, we must really make an extra effort to ensure the safety and security of our belongings and our loved ones. As much as possible, we must take all necessary precautions to guarantee that no one with any bad intentions can go near our things or family members.

One way to guard our possessions and loved ones is by installing portable home security alarm systems, which will be our eyes and ears at home when we are away. These can be bought at specialty shops and be easily installed since they are portable. They are also very easy to maintain and efficient in making sure that our home is kept safe.

Portable home security alarm systems are perfect for those who are renting an apartment or flat because they can easily be installed or removed in case the owner decides to move to another house. Unlike other more complicated security alarm systems, the portable type may be brought with you every time you change your address. This way you do not need to buy a new set of alarm systems each time you transfer homes because you do not have to leave your security device behind.

Easy installation is another advantage of having portable home security alarm systems. Most of the time you don’t actually have to install the system and therefore you will not need any professional assistance that may sometimes cost extra cash. Simply following the instructions stated in the user manual of the portable alarm system will help you install the device correctly.

But before you actually buy the portable home security package, it is essential that you have it tested first. After all, you wouldn’t want to take home a defective alarm system, do you? Simple testing of the item will save you from possible future inconveniences and make sure that you get full protection with a functional home security alarm system.

Most portable home security alarm systemsare relatively small in size, which is one of the reasons why they are portable. Aside from guarding the house, the smaller types of security devices may also protect vehicles and business establishments from intruders. All you have to do is install them properly and you can relax and worry less about your car or store.

One downside of portable home security alarm systems is their tendency to break down easily. But there are ways to maintain the excellent working condition of your portable security system so you need not replace any parts or the entire system. These guidelines are included in the user’s manual so you better take time to read it thoroughly and carefully before using the alarm system.

Just remember that your portable alarm system will most likely be at risk of getting damaged when you often install and uninstall it or fail to clean the surface. But when you religiously follow the instructions, then you don’t have to worry at all about bringing your home security system to the repair shop often.

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."
