Is IP Technology The Right Security Solution for Your Home or Business?

September 9th, 2021

Are IP technologies right for you in Chico, CA? These are a few of the reasons to consider the use of IP technologies which are available to you for online use today. Today it is neither too hard to get or too pricey; so consider these reasons for using the technologies.

1. Ease of use

CIP video features simplified videos, convenient plug-ins, and IP recorders/cameras. Even a novice or a beginner in Chico, CA will look like a pro when they are using the technology that is out there.

2. Quality resolution

With higher resolution than 4K and 12MP cameras, the right IP camera will make a world of difference in the finish and detail of what you are recording. Facial features are clear, and loss of resolution is limited, and rarely present.

3. Lower costs

Video, audio, transmission with a single network cable. Savings are abundant as cables are cheaper than what you currently have in place, so you can't make the cost excuse any longer.

4. It is the future

IP gear can easily be updated with the latest features and technologies. So like any other new product today, with the future, also comes the ability to upgrade and update as new updates are offered to users.

5. More efficient

You can receive live video updates to a smartphone or laptop when you are not at home in Chico, CA; for monitoring and other security metrics you are using the IP system, there is nothing better on the market today.

6. It's smart

Equipped with onboard processors, events are analyzed in live-time, as they are taking place. If suspicious behavior is present in Chico, CA, you are going to see it as it is taking place in real time.

7. Transmitting it is secure/safe

With the ability for you to encrypt and add security features, you don't have to worry about threats or attacks. You have complete privacy of what is being recorded when you are using this equipment at home or in a business setting.

8. Redundancy and reliability at your fingertips

With decades of technical evolution at your fingertips, you can store multiple videos and recordings for optimal security. You can use it to update, upgrade, and find leaks in points of security you have set up anywhere. You can always keep track of what is going on.

9. Integrate with systems

Alarms, lighting, music systems; nearly any smart or wireless systems you have set up in the home or place of business in Chico, CA, can easily be integrated with your IP system in a matter of seconds. It truly is the future of technology today.

10. Distances are infinite

As long as you have an internet connection, you can view the system in the same room, home/office, across town in Chico, CA, or even across the globe. Your coverage is truly limited.

Of course, a learning curve exists as is the case with any new technology or system; but with IP systems, it won't take long for you to learn and integrate with your other wireless devices. These are a few of the benefits and reasons to make the switch if you already haven't done so at home or in the place of business in Chico, CA where you wish to enhance security.

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."
