Installation of CCTV

Has anyone here installed CCTV at their home? I.E Covering the front/back door? I wondered how I would go about looking into it.

Re: Installation of CCTV

How handy are you with running wiring etc?

A bog standard 4 channel DVR and a couple of decent resolution cameras should be fine for most household tasks. Just mount the cameras so you catch faced and not hat the tops of heads.

As for DVRs I know a certain large Scottish wide security service use Qvis units and they are a doddle to set up and administer.

Yeah positioning the cameras will be interesting. Could do two covering the front and back of house and two covering the entry so that those later two stand a better chance of catching a face.

Re: Installation of CCTV

I got this for around 20 quid via ebay from China.

Easy to setup, HD video day or night. You might want to go wireless

Re: Installation of CCTV

Make absolutely certain the camera only records your property, even catching a slight proportion of your neighbours property or the public street could leave you liable for prosecution

Re: Installation of CCTV

That's quite amusing when we get the police around wanting to know if we caught on camera the hooligans in the street

Filming a public street illegal? Try telling that to Johnny Chav who films his mate being arrested while shouting out dubious legal advice.

Re: Installation of CCTV

CCTV is no different from taking a photo on a public street. There are no laws against this in the UK.

Re: Installation of CCTV

Yeah my understanding is that as long as it's clear you're mostly covering your own property then it's ok. What isn't ok is pointing a camera wholly at your neighbours.

Re: Installation of CCTV

Most CCTV units have masking capabilities in them so anything private is blocked out and not recorded anyway.

Just seen on Jeremy Vine that someone has lost a judgement for up to 100k for invading his neighbours privacy and not properly storing the records. Yes he was a bit extreme with his 4 ring doorbells but I'm surprised it's taken this long for someone to go to court and now they have it'll only be the start, best advice I have for anyone installing them and is concerned is talk to your neighbours, if they're okay with it then you have nothing to worry about. I'm currently installing three at my father in laws but one will now not be installed at all due to it capturing to much of someone else's property

Re: Installation of CCTV

My neighbour has one that covers all of his back yard/garden . . . and 2/3 of mine.
Saving me a few bob, quite happy here

If you look as the pictures of the houses, not only is there another house in between the 2 houses, there is a roadway leading to a parking area. It's not as if any of the cameras are, or even could be, aimed at any private areas(eg inside windows), it's all areas out in the open where anybody can see. Just crazy and completely nonsensical decision.
