Protect Your Property Against Multiple Burglaries

August 27th, 2021

Nothing is more disturbing to a business owner in Chico, CA as burglars who easily execute their theft plans on repeat occasions. Burglars can repeat their stealing escapades on a property only if they know the loopholes which a business owner may not be aware of. If you have been a victim of repeated burglary on a single property, more than likely there are some things these burglars may know about your property that you don't.

They somehow know how to get in and out without raising suspicion

If your Chico property has previously suffered a burglary attempt, then it is possible that the intruder may know the loophole that can allow for easy access in and out. The truth is that no home or business owner would get comfortable with an open-door policy. An open-door policy simply implies that an intruder can comfortably gain entry to a property and leave anytime they want. In the instance you suffer more than one burglary, your next move should be to identify any security loophole that may exist on your property and apply all the necessary working fixes.

They know the plan of your property

Returning thiefs probably know the layout details of a home or business and can thereby make an entry via channels that can raise the least suspicion. If you have suffered a burglary incidence, make sure to review your property plans to assess any weaknesses that the burglars are exploiting.

They have an idea of the kind of security system you are using

If an intruder manages to beat your security even just on one occasion, be certain that they easily do it in their second and subsequent attempts. Insist on having only high-quality and working security systems that cannot easily be manipulated by intruders. Again, having no security system just makes burglars prefer your property since they know that not many things will be deterring them.

They know where the valuables are kept

If an intruder has planned to break into your home or business, then they must have in mind where the valuables they are after are kept. You can thereby reduce valuables theft by having them placed in locations which intruders would last think of. If intruders know where you regularly keep your valuables, then their job may get incredibly simple – they will just have access to your property and head directly to where the valuables are.

They may come and take the items you may have replaced

A home cannot do without certain important items and in instances, they get stolen, then you will try as much as you can and have them replaced. Burglars are aware that some really important items are immediately replaced by homeowners after incidences of theft and they can easily lay their hands on the replaced items since they already know where they are. You can get smart by changing the locations of the important items that burglars may target.

Protecting your home against burglars should be a priority. You need to have a feeling of safety and be certain that hardly anybody with ill intent gets to have access to your home. Always take full advantage of any boost that can strengthen your security system and thereby prevent any possible theft.

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."
