Increased security with CCTV monitoring
CCTV (Closed-circuit television) monitoring is essential in ensuring the security of a property. Having CCTV cameras or even signs that warn about CCTV monitoring in visible places prevents vandalism and burglary. CCTV monitoring can also improve the safety of the people working in the premises. Typical CCTV-monitored premises include lobbies, entrances, IT rooms, loading bays and parking lots.
When making plans for a CCTV monitoring system, one has to take into account the technical requirements in terms of lighting and other conditions as well as the relevant regulation.
An individual has the right to protect their property and this can be done by using a CCTV system where it is necessary, such as a security measure. However, the Surveillance Camera Commissioner recommends that users of CCTV systems should operate them in a responsible way to respect the privacy of others.
A CCTV system to protect a domestic dwelling from acts of crime and anti-social behaviour is now commonplace. Although this seems a reasonable use, there have been a number of complaints to the police from neighbours and other members of the public using pavements in the vicinity who believe that cameras are being used to spy on them and their families.
Below is a short set of considerations to guide you through steps for ensuring that your CCTV security system reduces the risk of intruding on the privacy of others, including neighbours.
Before setting up the CCTV system it is important to consider the privacy of others including:
- where will the CCTV be positioned to ensure minimal intrusion in to my neighbour’s and other people’s privacy?
- will the range of the cameras overlook any neighbour’s property, pavements and other areas?
- how will my neighbours feel about my CCTV?
