Structured Cabling Systems

A structured cabling system is designed to support multiple hardware uses – including data, voice, video, security alarms and building management systems. A custom designed structured cabling system from Crime Free Living provides important benefits for any size facility, including: 

  • Standardization – one integrated system for phone, Ethernet and ISDN cabling
  • Longevity – reliable performance for years to come, without the need to re-cable when upgrading hardware or changing vendors
  • Streamlined Changes – a structured cabling system makes it easy to move equipment between locations, add phone lines/DSL/fax, and share files between devices
  • Easy Troubleshooting – any issues that occur are less likely to disable the entire network, and are easier to isolate and fix
  • Simple Upgrades – add applications like video conferencing or multimedia, without the hassles typically associated these upgrades

Data Cabling / Networking

As the single most crucial network infrastructure component, data cable must be properly installed, terminated and tested to ensure the highest speeds and the most error-free data transmission possible. If your Chico, CA business (or your home office) requires fiber optics, structured data or voice network cabling, Crime Free Living can design a cabling solution that fits your needs.

Additionally, investing in new security cameras also requires a data network to support your surveillance system. The proper infrastructure must be in place to quickly transmit your video throughout the network. Recording and sending a continuous video stream with 100% uptime demands sufficient data transmission capability. We are experts in providing this service.

Fiber Optic Technology

Too often, companies in Chico, CA settle for inefficient data transfer capability. At Crime Free Living, we utilize the latest fiber optic technologies to bring lightning-fast upload speeds to our customers. Our technicians can evaluate your current infrastructure, which is likely burdened by copper-based cables. Copper cables are slow and antiquated. Fiber optic cables, on the other hand, allow for multiple data streams and faster speeds. When it comes to technology, it’s better to be ahead of the curve than behind. By utilizing our fiber optic capabilities, you can ensure that your business’ data transmission systems are prepared for the future.

Remote Workstations

Now more than ever, employees are working remotely. However, many businesses struggle to keep sensitive data secure when their employees are remote. At Crime Free Living, we can work with you to set up remote workstations for your employees. This can give you peace of mind knowing that your business’ sensitive data is secure, no matter where an employee is working. Whether an employee is working from home for the day or uploading a file on their way home from work, our remote data transmission solutions keep your business data safe.

Additionally, we can set up remote workstations on mobile devices. Workstations do not have to be limited to laptops or computers. Allowing your employees to work remotely can increase their job satisfaction and productivity.

Some Chico, CA companies make the mistake of installing a complicated network infrastructure without accounting for future growth. Then, as their business grows, they may have to relocate buildings or take their network offline to improve their data transmission systems. But, if you put remote workstations into place, your employees can stay online no matter how large your business grows.

Storage Solutions

It takes an incredible amount of server space to store pictures and video. So we offer storage solutions that can help make data storage more manageable and affordable. This can reduce your storage costs significantly, allowing you to store more data for extended periods of time.

It’s also important to consider this dynamic when thinking about future business growth. What you may think is enough storage space now may diminish quickly as your business grows. Consider implementing data compression technology now so that you do not have to worry about it down the road. Business owners in Chico, CA find that the more they anticipate growth beforehand, the easier it is to expand their operations in the future.

Initial Cable Survey

At Crime Free Living, we offer a complete audit of all future installation locations. We work with business owners not only to update their current data transmissions but to account for future business growth as well. Our trained technicians will conduct a walk-through and map out where the initial installation of the fiber optic cable will be. We will also review your facility’s blueprints and floorplan to determine the optimal installation plan. Knowing the type of cables you currently have in place, and their locations, is key to determining the project’s scope and budget. This will allow us to better estimate the installed cost and related expenses. Because we every installation is unique, we always work to meet your budgeting constraints.

Comprehensive Retrofit Plan

Our technicians will conduct a full evaluation of your current data transmission processes and infrastructure. We will work to gain an understanding of your budget and your goals in upgrading your data transmission services. We will then design a comprehensive retrofit plan, tailored specifically to your business operations. Unlike other security companies, Crime Free Living offers more than just a one-size-fits-all data solution. Our ability to provide custom solutions sets us apart from our competitors and allows us to build lasting relationships with our Chico, CA customers.

Network configuration can be complicated, which is why you should leave it to the professionals at Crime Free Living. We can build your internal data system and make it as efficient as possible. What’s more, our technicians can connect your service with your cable provider, allowing you to connect your workspace to your customers and suppliers. We take the security of this process very seriously, to protect your business’ sensitive data.

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."
