Security Cameras Help You To Feel Better In Your Home

July 7th, 2020

Americans are seriously stressed out. Whether in Chico, CA or anywhere in the United States, individuals are feeling the pressure from their jobs, their families, and their broad range of life obligations. When they come home, they should have a place of refuge, and somewhere they can really let their hair down to relax. 

A big part of relaxation is the ability to feel safe, and that comes along with less than stellar news. The majority of Americans don’t feel completely safe in their home, whether in Chico, CA or another area within the country. When you feel unsafe in Chico, CA you can never truly relax, and you’re constantly harboring background stress you may not even realize you have. 

Learning To Feel Better And Learning To Relax 

Before a person makes a note to really relax, they first need to ensure their environment is secure. Security cameras installed in your area home can help to provide you with a much more secure space, allowing you to feel safer and feel more at ease while you’re spending time with family, with friends, or alone. The ways security cameras help you to feel more secure in your home are: 

  1. Protection from intruders – Intruders are a major concern when it comes to feelings of home safety. Millions of homes are broken into each and every year, and residents of the area know just how vulnerable they are to being next. Your security camera system can help to protect you from intruders, as the camera serves as a deterrent to keep criminals away in the first place. Criminals want to get away with their crimes without getting caught, and they know that is far less likely when the camera is rolling. 

  1. Catch suspicious neighborhood behavior – Your security camera system can be pointed to capture footage of not just your direct home, but your surrounding property as well. This can allow you to monitor traffic going by, individuals walking down the street and any suspicious activity that might be happening in or around your property. What many don’t realize is that not only do security cameras protect your home, but they can protect your neighbors’ homes as well. 

  1. Peace of mind for parents – Sometimes feeling safe isn’t just about your personal safety, and this is a fact that rings true for many area parents. Young people need a little freedom to grow up in a well-rounded way, but this freedom can be a huge point of stress for worried parents. Your home security camera system can make sure your kids are home for curfew, they stay home, and that only approved friends are coming to and from the home when you’re not around.

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."
