If you are considering investing in a CCTV system for your home or commercial space, or already have, it can be handy to know what you can and can’t do with it. A CCTV system includes the CCTV camera, storage, recording and all associated equipment.
As an individual, you have the right to protect your property, which a CCTV system can help with significantly. Using CCTV as a security measure is a very sensible option as long as it is operated in a responsible way and is respectful of others’ privacy.
It is now a very common occurrence for homeowners to use CCTV systems to protect their domestic space. It may seem reasonable to safeguard your home but the number of complaints from members of the public or peoples’ neighbours are on the increase. Complaints are often made by neighbours who believe that the CCTV systems are being used to impeach their privacy and to spy on them.
To ensure that you use your personal CCTV effectively and respectfully, see the list of rules and tips below.
