Schedule A Needs Assessment

Patient Security – We understand that when patients are in your care, they are at their most vulnerable. With a comprehensive video security system, access control system and easy remote management, you can ensure that patient rooms, hospital floors, and treatment areas are completely secure. We make it easy for your security team to ensure that patients remain safe, so you and they can focus on their healing.

Protect Staff – Healthcare staff are vulnerable to a host of threats, including erratic patient behavior, unauthorized persons entering the facility, and potential malpractice lawsuit exposure due to patient care issues. With a professionally designed and installed video security solution, medical staff will have the protection they need against these threats and more.

Visitor Management – Managing visitors is important for hospitals and long term care facilities. Ensuring that visitors are properly screened, signed in and monitored increases patient and staff security, and ensures Federal, state and local regulatory compliance. It also helps streamline the check-in process, and builds trust between the facility and patients and their loved ones.

Intrusion Detection – It is critical that Chico, CA healthcare facilities know who is coming and going at all times, to prevent entry by unauthorized persons, theft and vandalism, and potential attacks. A video security system with intrusion detection features is designed to alert your security team and local law enforcement authorities in the event of an intrusion incident, so they can respond to the situation quickly and effectively.

Loss Prevention – In medical facilities with high value items like pharmaceuticals and expensive medical equipment, there is an increased likelihood of theft. A video surveillance system along with a building access control system can help deter thieves, monitor inventory, and ensure that only authorized persons have access to sensitive areas.

Life Safety – When patients are in your care, it’s essential that you have a plan for every possible contingency. Being able to respond quickly and effectively to an emergency situation could mean the difference between life and death. Crime Free Living’s integrated security systems can also monitor life safety incidents like fire, smoke, carbon monoxide, or an extreme weather event, and warn patients and staff when there is an emergency.

Vandalism Prevention – Vandalism and property damage is expensive to remediate, and can jeopardize the functionality and security of your facility. Video surveillance systems work as a very effective deterrent to vandals. They also alert security staff to suspicious activity, to help catch vandals in the act.

Enhanced Patient Experience – The healthcare industry is based on trust. Patients need to feel cared for when they come to your facility. An integrated security system featuring video surveillance, 24/7 remote monitoring and access control helps put your entire staff at ease, so they can focus on providing the highest quality care to your patients.

Operational Improvements – Healthcare is operationally complex. With government compliance, administrative functions, provision of care, staffing and recruitment, and the management of facilities, equipment and supplies, process management is critical to your facility’s ongoing success. By monitoring the day-to-day activities of your Chico, CA healthcare operations, you can gain valuable data to guide your critical management decisions.

Our healthcare surveillance systems are fully integrated, so that you can view individual areas or monitor your entire facility 24/7 from one central hub.

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."
