Government update guidance on the use of domestic CCTV

There is an upsurge in the installation of domestic CCTV for security. This advice will help you to understand what you need to do if you are considering installing, or have already installed, a CCTV system (or similar technology, such as video-equipped doorbell devices) on your home. A CCTV system includes the camera, storage, recording and all associated equipment.

It includes guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office because if your CCTV system captures images of people outside the boundary of your private domestic property– for example, from neighbours’ homes or gardens, shared spaces, or from public areas – then the GDPR and the DPA will apply to you.
