3 Types Of Equipment That Can Make You Feel Safe In These Turmoil-Filled Times

August 30th, 2023

Unless individual was around in the 1960s, they probably have never experienced what the US is going through right now. Peaceful protests are happening in the streets for social justice. However, sometimes, bad seeds enter the groups, and they start riots that involve looting, shootings, and other forms of violence. There is also the whole matter of politicians, or at least one in particular, who won't condemn certain organizations' actions.

Those issues don't make people feel safe and secure, not even in their homes or cars. Rather, they add stress to the equation, which nobody needs, especially in the middle of a pandemic. They also trigger fear in the hearts of many citizens. To protect themselves as much as possible, they can invest in certain types of security equipment. The following sections will focus on several of them. Hence, curious individuals should stick around and read further to learn more.


Surveillance Cameras For The Home

Security cameras don't necessarily stop all crimes in their tracks, but they do deter many criminals. Therefore, they may prevent some events from unfolding on properties. After all, burglars, vandals, and even Peeping Toms don't want to be captured on video breaking laws. The footage can generate leads for police officers and ultimately get the culprits thrown behind bars.

Surveillance cameras provide people with peace of mind, even if they aren't in their homes. That is possible since most modern cams can be accessed remotely from smartphones, thanks to apps. It doesn't matter if a person goes out to eat or on vacation; they can receive alerts and view live feeds. When issues come up, homeowners are able to contact the authorities to check their property.


Outdoor Lights

Lots of folks are scared by what could be lurking in the shadows of their yards. No, we are not talking about supernatural entities. Rather, the ones being discussed are burglars, kidnappers, voyeurs, rapists, and other criminals. In dimly lit settings, any of them can sneak into someone’s yard and remain hidden in the dark. They could lay in wait until the moment is right and then strike.

Homeowners can avoid being terrified by things going bump in the night by investing in high-quality outdoor lights. The bright bulbs will eliminate hiding spots and make it easy for someone to see what is going on outside. So have the fixtures installed to ensure that nobody can sneak onto your property without you knowing.


A Dashcam For Your Car

Dash- or windshield-mounted cameras can be useful in many ways. Like the home surveillance cameras, they too may deter thieves. They are also great for recording evidence regarding vandalism, theft, road rage incidents, and more.

Dashcams help people feel safe and secure in their vehicles. They know that if issues happen out on the open road or in parking lots, there have the proof needed to get perpetrators off the streets.

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."
