Alibi Security Cloud VS Success Story-White Barn Wedding Venue

May 15th, 2020

Like many wedding venues that experience high-traffic from customers, staff, and vendors, White Barn encountered safety liability issues like wet floors, tipsy guests, and trespassers. They needed a security system that would provide 24/7 surveillance and scalability features as they continue to grow their business.  

The Client 

White Barn is a popular wedding venue in Pittsburgh that offers a rustic and unique wedding experience, including Amish inspired décor and access to a lilypond with paddleboats. 

The Challenge 

With so many guests coming and going, their high-traffic ‘hot spots’ were causing security and safety risks: 

  • Kitchen—hot dishes, busy kitchen staff, and wet floors are a dangerous combination – just one slip-and-fall accident can lead to an expensive lawsuit. 
  • Lilypond—this unique amenity is one of White Barn’s biggest perks – but paddle at your own risk! It’s unsupervised during events and popular activity for trespassers after business hours. 

The owners of White Barn didn’t have a surveillance system in place but knew they needed one to keep tabs on their property and oversee guest and staff activity when they were off-premise or working remotely. If trespassers vandalize their property, the owners need data evidence they can remotely view, download, and send to local authorities. With upcoming plans to expand their services (including a Bed & Breakfast), they required a security system that could allow them to install cloud throughout various parts of their property by connecting to a wireless network. 

The Solution 

After considering options from several providers, they chose Alibi Cloud VS because of its ability to scale with their growing business cost-effectively. They installed six cloud-enabled bullet cameras in front of their Barn, inside the dance hall, kitchen, and along their exits —with plans to add another 4-6 cameras after their Bed & Breakfast is built. 

The Outcome 

Since the camera-to-cloud install, White Barn owners now have around-the-clock surveillance. If a trespasser vandalizes their property, they’ll get notified in real-time on their smartphone, which they can then download and send to authorities within minutes. Once their Bed & Breakfast is built, they can easily add more cameras, adjust user permissions, and increase storage retention. With Alibi Cloud VS now in place, owners can protect their assets, guests, and staff with a simple, scalable, and secure solution.

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."
