Why You Need HD Security Cameras

March 25th, 2022

When it comes to video cameras and the images and footages from them, you want to make sure to have the highest definition and level of clarity possible. The cameras job is to monitor the property, deter crime, and capture video footage. If that footage is not useable, however, it doesn't do much to help you if something were to happen. 

For this reason, you should consider installing high definition security cameras around your property . If you already have security cameras in place, it may be time to consider an upgrade to your current cameras and system.

Benefits of HD Security Cameras

The following are just a few of the benefits you can take advantage of when you decide to use HD security cameras for your home or business.

Clear Video

One of the most important aspects of your security cameras is the ability to capture crystal clear images and footage. If something happens on your property, you want to make sure you have the evidence you need, which means good quality footage. 

Extended Coverage Area

High definition cameras can record at much higher resolutions, so this gives them the ability to monitor a much wider area. When this happens, you don't have to use as many cameras to cover one area. This also means that it can ultimately be cheaper this way as well because you are using fewer cameras but are still able to cover a much wider area.

Expansion Support

IP cameras are becoming the industry standard when you look for HD cameras. You are not limited with these cameras as you are with analog systems. With an IP system, you can make it as big or as small as you like. These cameras depend on the NVR software and the bandwidth of your network.

As long as you have software that can support the number of cameras you are using, and your bandwidth is enough to transmit the video, you are good. You may only need to have a few cameras today, but with this kind of system, you can easily expand that in the future and include more cameras as your needs change. 

Capture the Details

HD cameras mean that you can capture millions of pixels in a single image. So, you can cover a much wider area with these cameras while also being able to make out the smallest details in the images and footage. Nothing is missed, blurred, or obscure as you may find with analog systems.

Many people have installed HD cameras at their front doors in recent years. Not only do these cameras catch the face of the criminal, but they are also powerful enough to clearly show the vehicle and even the license plate when positioned properly.

Look to the Future

With IP cameras, you can also rest assured that you have a system that is futureproofed. This means that your high definition video will be good for years to come. So, why not look into one of these systems in Chico, CA while they are affordable and much easier to install and operate than ever before?

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."
