Daycare Surveillance Offers Plenty Of Advantages

July 30th, 2021

Daycare centers in Chico, CA have become more and more popular over the years. After all, times have changed, and it is harder and harder for families to make it on a single income. Thus, both parents have to work, which means they need someone to look after the kiddos and keep them safe. However, a lot of mothers and fathers are fearful of leaving the children at these institutions, and who can blame them?

There always seems to be a story on the news or social media about something terrible happening at one of these locations. Live surveillance cameras are the ideal solution to protect all those involved. Unfortunately, there are barely a handful of daycares in Chico, CA that have these devices installed. With a bit of persistence, parents can change this aspect by only enrolling their kids at daycares with live surveillance cameras. In turn, other companies will fall in line and get the equipment too.

Without Further Ado, The Benefits Of Daycare Surveillance

Security Cameras Keep The Location Safe And Sound

Because of the type of business daycares partake in, they are the perfect place for kidnappers to strike. While cameras alone are not enough to stop all criminal acts, they tend to deter them. If the person sees the signs and cams on-site, he or she will be less inclined to go through with the activity. Should the individual decide to do the deed anyway, his or her face will be captured on video. The tape can then be turned over to the authorities to help them find and arrest the suspect.

Peace Of Mind

As mentioned above, the majority of parents don't like leaving their kids at daycare. They would much rather keep them at home with them. There, they know no harm will come to the little one. However, because this action is not always possible, live surveillance cameras are the next best thing. With this option, the guardian can log in to the system at any point during the day to see how and what the child is doing.

Additionally, these cameras are an excellent tool for connecting with your kiddos. The parent can talk to the child about the activities that he or she saw them doing and provide praise. In turn, this element assists the group in building strong, healthy bonds and relationships.

Holds Workers Accountable For Their Actions

With so many children around for lengthy periods, it is possible for daycare employees to get frazzled and frustrated every once in a while. However, it is of the utmost importance that these individuals never take out their anger on the little ones. Having live surveillance cameras keeps these workers walking a straight path because they know that someone could be peeking in on the business at any given time. If a parent or the owner sees something wrong on the feed, the employee will be held accountable. They can be given a punishment like a suspension without pay or even get fired.

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."
