Security Cameras Can Keep Businesses And Schools Safe

March 31st, 2022

A robust security system is important for all kinds of businesses, schools, and other institutions.  Security is one of our basic needs as people, and without it we can become stressed, paranoid, and too preoccupied to deal with other important matters.  That’s why many people install a strong security system with advanced access control, alarm systems, and surveillance cameras.  Whether you’re protecting children or private property, security cameras can be a big help.

Cameras For Businesses

As a business owner or manager it’s important to trust your employees, but your employees can do a lot of damage if they decide to betray that trust.  You also need to keep an eye on customers who might take advantage of you if they think no one’s looking.  That’s why everyone from major corporations to local corners stores will invest in surveillance systems that keep track of their property and assets.  At a business, cameras can:

  • Deter criminal activity by reminding people that someone could be watching them.

  • Encourage employees to keep on track since if they slack off they could get caught on record.

  • Give employers and managers a chance to see what’s going on even when they’re on a business trip by using a security app with remote access.

  • Provide a physical record you can present to police, attorneys, and insurance claims adjusters to back up your statements.

Cameras For Schools

Child safety is always important, and that importance keeps being underlined by recent events.  From K-12 and beyond, surveillance cameras are a useful addition to campus security in a number of ways.  For instance, a school camera system will:

  • Identify suspicious people and behavior so school security can act early.

  • Encourage students to stay on their best behavior since someone could be watching.

  • Show acts of bullying so it’s not just one student’s word against another when they speak to a teacher.

  • Spot vandals who try to sneak in and deface school property at night.

Cameras For Homes

In addition to public spaces, many people also install cameras in their homes as part of a bigger security system.  Home security is important, after all, and cameras can spot more than just a burglar trying to sneak in when everyone is away.  A home camera can:

  • Let you know who’s at the door even if you’re on another floor.

  • See how the babysitter is handling things while you’re out for the evening.

  • Find out whether your kids are hosting a party while you’re away.

  • Record any suspicious comings and goings that might be a professional thief watching your home.

Security is a basic need and a right in modern societies.  A good surveillance system can improve any security setup by letting you see several locations at once, and the recordings come in handy when you need to prove something to the authorities later.  At Security Feed, we help people understand what modern surveillance technology can do and what kind of setup will work for every location, so contact us today and begin your first consultation.

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."
