Some Of The Benefits Associated With Surveillance Cameras In The Workplace

June 10th, 2020

Surveillance cameras can be useful tools in a workplace setting. Before installing the units, owners should draft clearly defined monitoring policies, which adhere to local Chico laws. It needs to be included in the organization's employee handbook. The action will ensure that workers, managers, and everyone in-between, have access to the materials should any issues arise. Once all of the I's are dotted and the T's are crossed, persons can set up cameras, or have a professional company install them, to start experiencing all of the benefits.

Speaking of benefits, several of the perks are going to be discussed right here. Hence, curious Chico bosses, managers, and employees should stay put and read on to learn more. There is plenty of information to cover in the following sections. 

Security Cameras Are Excellent For Weeding Out Bad Seeds

Employee theft is a big problem in America. According to an article published on, it costs businesses approximately $50-billion each year in the United States. Hence, organizational leaders must think outside-of-the-box and nip this issue in the bud to prevent their respective companies from facing such financial difficulties. That is where surveillance cameras can be of use. It is a good idea to mount them watching over cash registers, building entrances/exits, and supply closets. 

Then, whenever an employee gets sticky fingers, the Chico boss will, hopefully, catch him or her red-handed. After all, try and try as they might; it is not always possible for business owners to surround themselves with trustworthy, honest, and loyal souls. The footage can be the evidence that they need to contact the police or fire the individual and be done with them. 

Surveillance Cameras Offer Workers Peace Of Mind

Lots of bad stuff can happen at a person's place of work. For example, an individual could be walking across the parking lot at night after a hard day, only to get attacked by someone lying in wait. Then again, an employee might sexually harass a co-worker in a dimly lit stairwell. Surveillance cameras are the perfect solutions for providing representatives with peace of mind. Instead of continually looking over their shoulders, they will be happy and content, as they know the organization cares and someone is watching their backs. 

Avoid Frivolous Lawsuits With Video Surveillance

Sometimes, workers, customers, and guests sustain injuries while on a company's property. There is no funny business going on, and the organization may have to cover their medical expenses. On other occasions, persons might try to get one over on the company, fake damages, and seek compensation. In other words, the establishment could be out of a ton of money in a hurry if the powers that be do not have any evidence to dispute the claims.

However, officials and legal teams can review the footage to discredit lawsuits if the property is outfitted with security cameras. There have been only a few of the benefits of video surveillance mentioned here, but there are plenty more. So, what are you waiting for? Get yours today and find out what all of the fuss is about for yourself.

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."
