How New Wireless Technology Can Protect Your Home

August 13th, 2021

Wireless security technology has really advanced in recent years offering new products and ways to protect your home. If you’ve never owned a security system or are looking to upgrade your current system, wireless technologies offer a range of new security features and benefits. Here are some of the ways that wireless technology is improving home security.

Why Choose Wireless For Your Home in Chico, CA

Wireless security technology has been around for a few years now. This technology has some major advantages over the old style analog systems. First of all, wireless security systems are mobile. So if you ever decide to move, you can bring the system with you. They can also be installed in apartments. Secondly, wireless security systems do not use a landline to alert authorities. So you don’t have to worry about a smart criminal snipping your cable and breaking into your home any longer.

Wireless systems use IP technology. So they can also be accessed remotely from wherever you have an internet connection. That is great news for anyone who wants to monitor their home while at the office or when traveling. Some of these systems even allow remote access with your smartphone or tablet. So you can protect your home no matter where you are. 

New Outdoor Security Features in Chico, CA

Wireless technology also offers some really great outdoor safety features including:

Front Door Monitor: Wireless technology can be set up to alert you whenever someone is at your front door. Front door monitoring offers a variety of great benefits. First, it will help prevent any package theft. Secondly, you can see who is at your front door before you enter. Finally, if you have an intruder, they will help you notify the police immediately.

Mailbox Monitor: Mail theft is a major problem and can lead to theft of your credit cards or checks or even having your identity stolen. With new technology, you can monitor your mailbox with your security system. An alert will go off anytime someone accesses your phone. That way you can retrieve your mail as soon as it is delivered, as well as catch any thieves red-handed.

Driveway Monitor: Driveway monitors are perfect for people who live in remote areas like in the country or suburbs. Thieves tend to stage burglaries from the driveway, so knowing when someone has come on your driveway can help prevent theft. It’s also a great way to be notified when someone has come to your home.

These are just some of the ways that wireless technology can protect your outdoor spaces. They can also be used to monitor any gated areas, provide safety around swimming pools, or protect outbuildings on your property.

With all these great new technologies, homeowners in Chico, CA can really benefit from a home security system.

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."
