Security Cameras Can Improve A Warehouses Bottom Line

June 16th, 2022

If you’re familiar with how a business operates, you know there are many ways for a company to lose money.  You need to buy equipment for your company, pay rent or buy a location, pay your employees’ wages, pay premiums on your insurance, and so on.  You can also lose money by hiring workers who aren’t efficient enough, bad employees who steal from the company, burglars and shoplifters who take your property, and other losses.  Security is a form of loss prevention, and for warehouses in Chico, CA that security should include surveillance cameras.


Cameras of every make and description provide a deterrence factor when you place them in visible locations.  Installing an obvious security camera lets your employees know that someone will be watching them, and installing other cameras outdoors can let burglars know that someone could spot them before they even enter the building.  Through deterrence, surveillance cameras can prevent employee theft, burglary, and incidents between employees that could lead to a lawsuit against the company.

Motion Detection And Recording

Old surveillance cameras needed to be always on and always recording if you wanted to spot burglars or dishonest employees.  However, today you can get cameras with motion detection and alert systems that can turn on when someone approaches them and will automatically alert you or your security staff just before sending and recording the live feed.  This system makes it much easier to spot burglars trying to break in after all the employees go home.

Camera-Down Alerts

If your warehouse in Chico, CA occupies a large building and you have an extensive number of cameras, it can be hard to tell why a camera goes down or even why it happens.  Both dishonest employees and burglars can take advantage of this by cutting feed lines or disabling cameras directly so they can get in without having a camera spot or record them.  You can prevent this by getting software that will send out an alert when a camera goes down for any reason.

Remote Viewing

Wireless feeds and IP connections allow today’s cameras to be fully compatible with any authorized mobile device.  That means you can log into a security app on your smartphone and view any of your encrypted camera feeds or recordings from anywhere in the world.  This allows you to check up on your security staff, get security alerts through your phone, and see how well your employees are working when you aren’t supervising in person.

Security is important for loss prevention, and security cameras can prevent several kinds of loss.  Inefficiencies, dangerous incidents, theft, burglary, are just some of the losses that you can use cameras to catch, record, and present later during lawsuits, criminal trials, or else meetings with employees about how to improve their work effectiveness.  However, it’s important to have the right kinds of cameras for the right jobs, and so you should take care to choose the right company in Chico, CA to help you choose models and install your new camera 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."
