Closed Circuit Television CCTV has been around for some time. It was used in a basic format in 1942 by the Germans the monitor the launch of the V2 rocket. Since then, CCTV has been put to a myriad of uses.
So much so, that public bodies and organisations, as well as private businesses and households have been investing in CCTV. But why? What are the uses behind CCTV but what do you need to be aware of?
There are many reasons why investing in CCTV at your Area 1 business or home is a wise investment;
All CCTV systems must operate and collect information within the law. There is growing concerns, especially with private homes, flats and so on having CCTV installed on the outside of the building that they are monitoring what they should – e.g. people calling at a property – and not recording the movement of the general public passing by.
Even if done so with no intention or by mistake, if your CCTV at your home or business is not used in the right way, you could face legal action.
For example, you should have a sign that tells people their movements on your property are being recorded and/or monitored. There are also obligations under the Data Protection Act about what or how the recorded information is used and not used.
You must also show that you understand the right of individuals to privacy and that clearly, in some areas, the use of CCTV is not appropriate.
CCTV for your Livingston home or business needs to be designed and installed in such a way that it provides useful and needed feedback. That means calling the experts – contact Mathers Satellite.
