Can I Install CCTV?
A CCTV system to protect a home from acts of crime and anti-social behavior is now commonplace.
Everyone has the right to protect their property and they can install an alarm system and /or CCTV system. Remember any CCTV system installation should operate with respect to privacy of others.
A few considerations for privacy of others:
1. Select camera positions to minimise intrusion in to other people’s property.
2. For minimal intrusion consider features like privacy masking and adjustable camera lens (vari-focal) .
3. If a camera is looking over your neighbour’s property, then you so make them aware to avoid complaints.
4. Remember you are responsible for the recordings on your system and this must not be used for any other purpose other than protecting your property.
