Front Door – The majority of thieves enter a home through the front door. Installing a security camera, with an unobstructed view of your front door, enables you to monitor visitors and activity.

  • Mounting the camera on the eaves of your roof on a single story or second story home, angled at the front door can provide coverage of the area.
  • A varifocal camera enables you to easily adjust the camera’s focal length and field of view.
  • Installing vandal-resistant security cameras provides protection against tampering and physical impact from thieves who may try to vandalize the camera to prevent being captured on video.

Back Door – Did you know that the back door is the second most popular area of entry for home burglaries? Ensuring a successful security camera installation with a clear view of the back door enables you to monitor this vulnerable entry point.

  • Installing a vandal-resistant security camera can prevent tampering and provide protection against physical impact.
  • Make sure your back door security camera is unobstructed. Keep landscaping and shrubbery trimmed near back doors to ensure you capture any and all activity.
  • Vandal-resistant security cameras provide protection against tampering and physical impact from thieves who may try to vandalize the camera to prevent being captured on video.

Backyard – The backyard of your home is enticing for thieves to gain entry into your home, and steal high-ticket items from your property. Thieves can break-in and enter your home through backyard French doors or sliding glass patio doors.

  • Many thieves target backyards to steal lawn equipment, grills, recreational vehicles, and other items. Make sure you keep these items locked up and monitor the backyard and storage areas.
  • A high-resolution infrared camera (IR) camera can provide low light and nighttime surveillance capabilities.

Garage – Oftentimes thieves enter a home through an open or unlocked attached garage.

  • Always keep your garage door locked, even while you are home, and don’t keep your car in the driveway with the garage door opener inside, making it easy for a thief to enter your home.
  • Installing a video security camera with a clear view of the garage and driveway can help deter home break-ins and theft.
  • Motion detection recording can help you eliminate sifting through video footage where nothing is happening and reduce hard drive storage requirements.

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."
