Install a Video Intercom System for Your Security and Peace of Mind

February 9th, 2021

Nowadays, it is very wise and quite reasonable to install a video intercom system for your security. Whether at home or a business establishment, we must always take the necessary precautions to make sure that our priced possessions are always safely guarded and, more importantly, that our loved ones are secure at all times.

Video intercom systems are commonly used today in Chico,CA apartments in order for the tenants to easily and safely communicate with each other without having to leave their homes. It works like the regular intercom system but more advanced as it has a video feature where you will actually be able to see who you are talking to and not just hear the voice from the other end. This is a very complex system that may also be used for the communication of two persons from two different buildings.

A well-functioning video intercom system for your security is definitely a good investment and not just a waste of your hard-earned money. And when you think about it, you will actually save more money with having a video intercom system installed at your place than hiring additional security guards. Of course, you must still have at least one guard on duty to keep an eye on who’s coming in and out of the building.

When you install a video intercom system for your security, you also install a device that will help you easily identify visitors to determine whether they are friends or intruders. Immediate recognition of intruders with the help of the video intercom system will enable you to call the cops right away to have them arrested, saving yourself and your family from possible dangers.

Even though we have our trusted police department to rely on for security, it is still our responsibility as citizens of this country to be more vigilant and watchful of what is happening in our environment. Our generation is quite lucky for having this advanced technology, which paved the way to the invention of hi-tech security measures, such as having a video intercom system for your security. We may not all be able to afford to have private security at home but we can certainly avail of this technology to keep our houses safe at all times.

When buying a video intercom system or other security systems, make sure that you will only get units from a trusted supplier and that the whole system will be installed by someone who has the proper know-how and expertise. A video intercom system for your security will only work if it is properly installed and tested. Defective parts of the system must immediately be replaced to enjoy the full functionality of the video intercom system.

Other than security, the video intercom system will also give you convenience in dealing with visitors. Imagine not having to go down five floors just to verify if the person at the lobby of your apartment building is the friend that you have been waiting for. So hurry and install your own video intercom system at home today.

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."
