Today’s technologically advanced video security systems can provide substantial benefits, including some that aren't immediately obvious. Here are some of the key aspects of modern video security that your Chico, CA financial institution can benefit from:

  • Theft Reduction - The mere presence of a video security system can do much to deter criminal activity on your property, including theft, robbery, vandalism and employee theft (shrink). A visible security system is your business’ first line of defense.
  • Reduced Liability - Security cameras provide court admissible video evidence that can help protect you and your organization from fraudulent slip and fall liability claims and similar legal actions. Liability protection is a key safeguard for your financial institution’s bottom line.
  • Safety – Crime Free Living offers security camera systems with the latest video analytics technology, including tamper detection, intrusion detection, face detection, line crossing, region entrance/exit, heat mapping and more. In addition to helping to protect your business operations as well as your employees and customers, these tools enable you to track and analyze traffic patterns, customer and employee activity, and more.
  • Operational Efficiency – Maximizing efficiency in your business processes, best practices, and regulatory compliance is absolutely essential for any Chico, CA financial institution. With a professionally designed and installed security camera system, you will have the capability to monitor activity 24/7 in public and employee-only areas, to identify potential issues and determine the appropriate course of action to improve process and maintain consistency.

Installing a surveillance system (or modernizing your existing system) is a must for Chico, CA financial institutions. At Crime Free Living, we’ve worked with banks, credit unions, and other financial services firms throughout Chico, CA, and we take pride in providing our customers with the latest technology, protection and support in the security industry, at the best value.

Even if your Chico, CA financial institution already has a video security system in place, it’s important to review your system’s capabilities periodically. Most financial businesses in Chico, CA will find that they can benefit from a security upgrade. Recent advances in video security technology include multi megapixel resolution cameras, recorders with higher channel counts and advanced file compression technology, comprehensive central management software, remote management via mobile devices, advanced video analytics, and more. Here's a look at some of the numerous benefits that today's modern security systems have to offer:

Multi-Megapixel Resolution – The days of grainy, low quality security camera images are long gone. Today’s video security camera systems feature resolutions up to 8.0 megapixels (4K), for crystal clear high definition video images day or night. This makes it easy to identify suspects, and provides you with court admissible evidence that can be used to prove your case in legal proceedings.

Central Management Software – All video security systems installed by Crime Free Living feature a user-friendly software app that’s loaded with powerful features to enhance your management and viewing experience, including drag-and-drop system and camera selection, customizable displays, device grouping, alarms and notifications, remote system management, and much more.

Mobile App – All video security systems installed by Crime Free Living feature an iOS and Android compatible mobile app, with incredibly robust features. View both live and recorded video; view up to 16 cameras at once on your smartphone or tablet; take snapshots or record live video directly from your mobile device; store up to 16 devices at once; add, delete, or modify connected devices; digitally zoom in during live video or remote playback modes; and much more. The mobile app gives you complete freedom to monitor your Chico, CA financial services business anytime, from wherever you are – across town, or halfway around the globe.

Higher Channel Counts – Today’s security video recorders can support as many as 128 channels, providing an economical solution for large camera installations, and giving you the flexibility to “future proof” your business, should you need to add more cameras at a later date.

H.265+ Compression – The latest processor technology delivers up to an 80% reduction in bandwidth and storage requirements, enabling you to securely store months of recorded video footage.

24/7 Monitoring – Modern video security systems can be easily connected to 24/7 monitoring services. This allows your surveillance system to work in tandem with remote teams to keep a watchful eye on your business. If an incident occurs, the monitoring service can dispatch law enforcement authorities to your business within minutes.

Covert Cameras - Today's hidden cameras are more discrete than ever. They can be disguised as clocks, smoke detectors, and a range of other ordinary objects. While visible cameras are important for crime deterrence, it's also important to utilize hidden cameras, particularly to combat theft and employee shrink.

Vandalproof Cameras – Many video surveillance cameras are also tamper and vandal resistant, able to stand up to direct impacts from criminals attempting to disable the system. Crime Free Living offers cameras with enclosures rated IK10 for impact resistance.

Compatibility – HD-TVI technology allows the latest high resolution HD video security cameras to be installed using your existing wiring, if you currently have an analog video security system. This can save valuable time and money during installation.

The bottom line is, even if you already have an older system in place, it's vital for your Chico, CA financial institution’s security to invest in a modern video surveillance system.

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."
