7 Reasons to Choose an LED Security Monitor

7 Reasons to Choose an LED Security Monitor

LED (light emitting diode) security displays offer several benefits over liquid crystal display (LCD) monitors. We've put together a quick-hit list of 7 compelling reasons for switching from an LCD monitor to an LED display in CA.

1. Slender Design

LED security display backlighting enables a sleek, slender design. LED displays are lighter and thinner than LCD displays. Why? LED displays aren't engineered to use fluorescent bulbs-plus, LED displays are not as cumbersome or bulky like LCD displays, they occupy far less space when placed on a desk, table or mounted on a wall.

2. Lifelike Color

LED displays offer greater intensity gradation and a much larger light wavelength than LCD displays, resulting in true, lifelike colors with better gradation.

3. Brilliant Images

LED displays feature remarkable contrast ratios that produce a more brilliant, vibrant picture than conventional LCD displays. Image contrast is much more enhanced, colors appear deeper and lusher, there's more depth to black, and the overall picture is much brighter.

4. Non-flickering Images

LED monitors produce images that are virtually free of any flickering. This results in less strain on your eyes, less eye fatigue, and fewer headaches.

5. Enhanced Picture Quality

Not only do LED displays have more intense color than LCD monitors and don't create any blurring due to motion. Many LCD displays produce motion blurring, which is basically when a picture blurs momentarily during scenes with intense on-screen motion. Unlike LCD lighting technology, LED lighting technology prevents light from escaping, so picture quality is not affected and the result is an image that is clear and crisp without any blurring during action scenes.

6. Long Life

LCD displays are equipped with fluorescent bulbs. The bulbs have a shorter lifespan with continuous operation and tend to dim over time. LED displays have a much longer lifespan, offering more operational hours than a traditional LCD monitor, and there is very little decrease in the output of power over time.

7. Less Power Consumption

LED monitors are engineered for low power consumption and are more environmentally-friendly. On average, an LED display can offer a 30-50% reduction in power consumption than a conventional LCD display. And, unlike LCD security monitors, LED-lit displays are easier to recycle and contain no mercury or halogen, so they are much safer for the environment in CA.

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."

Rich

"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."

Gloria

"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."
