6 Benefits of HDcctv

March 5th, 2021

HDcctv technology provides many benefits when it comes to video surveillance and security applications Chico, CA. While it's still a relatively new technology, it's becoming the technology of choice for the security industry Chico, CA and will continue to be, well into the future. Below are six compelling reasons to choose HDcctv:

Unparalleled Resolution

HDcctv is the only high resolution video surveillance camera connection technology that delivers uncompressed, HDTV-compliant, TV broadcast quality signals in live video viewing. HDcctv's exceptional megapixel quality resolution is especially beneficial for video surveillance; you have the ability to zoom in during live video and playback modes to focus on an area of interest with exceptional clarity and crisp detail. The amount of viewable detail in your recorded video can make a difference when it comes to being able to identify the suspect and link them to the crime, with evidence to prosecute. An analog camera does not have enough pixel resolution to provide the kind of detail and awareness that HDcctv can deliver.

Use Existing Cabling

In most cases, you can install an HDcctv system using your existing coax (RG/59, RG/6 and RG/11) cables without an adapter. HDcctv video cameras are point-to-point, using coax cables to send the video feed directly from the camera to the recording device or DVR, without the need for a network infrastructure. The ability to use existing cabling (versus having to install the network infrastructure needed for an IP megapixel video system) helps reduce overall installation costs.

Zero Latency

The HDcctv video feed travels on its own line with no compression and produces no latency (time delay). In live video mode, HDcctv is smoother than analog and IP, with no skipping or image distortion.

Ease of Installation

With an HDcctv DVR, you don't need a networking or IT background in order to install the system. It features plug-and-play connectivity that's as easy to set up as standard analog CCTV systems. And, unlike an IP-based video system, there's no need to configure or program each device, you simply plug it in.

Ease of Use

With an HDcctv system, the user interface is the same for the operator or installer as a CCTV interface, so no additional training is necessary to operate the system. An HDcctv system is incredibly easy to use.

Upgrade For Less

HDcctv systems allow you to use existing cabling, don't require a network infrastructure, and use less bandwidth, so you will save on cabling, installation and operational costs.

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."
