Frequency Asked Questions

What is CCTV?

CCTV, or closed-circuit television, is a form of security that allows individuals and organizations to monitor activity on their premises. It uses cameras, monitors, and recording devices to capture and record images of everything happening in any location. Through CCTV systems, users can view both recorded footage as well as live images, which can be extremely helpful for a variety of security purposes ranging from deterring crime to providing surveillance while on premises.

Are CCTV cameras legal?

Yes, CCTV cameras are legal. Using recording equipment, such as CCTV or smart door entry, to capture video or sound recordings outside the user’s property boundary is not a breach of data protection law. It is certainly beneficial to have cameras facing outwards to monitor your property entrance and exterior. To comply with data protection laws, cameras should not be pointed at neighbours’ homes, gardens, or shared areas.

Do commercial buildings need to follow any specific laws when it comes to installing CCTV?

Although a CCTV user doesn’t need planning permission unless the property is listed, they must still comply with three key pieces of UK legislation:

  • The Protection of Freedoms Act 2021
  • The Surveillance Camera Code of Practice 2013 (SCCOP)
  • The Data Protection Act (DPA)

Therefore, the business must be aware of its responsibilities when using CCTV. They will have to, for example:

  • Display CCTV signs to alert people
  • Providing images within a month of recording to anyone recorded
  • Provide images to police if they request
  • Delete the unnecessary images
  • SMEs must pay an annual data protection fee to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

Can CCTV be used to monitor staff?

CCTV has become an increasingly popular tool for employers to monitor their employees, with laws allowing employers to use such systems for lawful reasons, including employee safety and crime prevention. Overall, CCTV can be a useful tool for employers with a legitimate reason to monitor their employees, helping ensure compliance with health and safety regulations and staff performance.

Will CCTV work without the internet?

The simple answer is yes. While remote viewing of footage won’t be available, CCTV cameras are still able to function without an internet connection. This is because the functionality of capturing footage from CCTV cameras does not need to have access to the web or any outside source. Additionally, those who desire to use the camera will be able to see the recordings by simply physically accessing the device itself. However, a connection is required in order to transfer data over a network or gain access remotely; thus explaining why remote view will not be available if no internet connection is present.

Will CCTV work without electricity?

The answer is both yes and no. In order to make CCTV cameras function without relying on electrical power, they will need to be either solar or battery powered. For instance, if placed in areas lacking access to a sufficient electrical grid, CCTV cameras’ greatest advantage – surveillance – can be harnessed if a solar powered solution is applied. Such an application would ensure that the cameras will benefit from the efficiency of clean and renewable energy sources, therefore allowing for effective security surveillance even in remote locations.

Is CCTV an alarm system?

No, CCTV is not an alarm system. Instead of alerting people to danger, CCTVs primarily capture footage of activities in and around an area. Because of this, CCTVs are mainly used commercially for businesses as opposed to private homes that need a more comprehensive security setup, including alarms.

How Much Does CCTV Installation Cost?

This is not an easy question to answer due to the fact that different properties will require differing amounts of cameras. With so many options available, it becomes very difficult to give a general figure on how much a complete installation will cost you. In addition, every property is unique, so the number of cameras necessary for one building could be far less or more than what would be needed in another. Finally, considerations such as the cameras’ quality and location must also be considered when investigating CCTV installation costs.

Some of the variables include:

  • Are there any specific types of cameras to be used?
  • How many cameras should be used?
  • What is the location of these cameras?
  • Do difficult-to-access places require special equipment for installation?
  • How would you like to store your data?
  • What monitoring options would you need?
  • CCTV system with wires or wireless?

It is best to discuss during a CCTV survey to get an accurate idea of how much CCTV installation will cost you. During this meeting, you’ll be able to discuss your budget and determine if the CCTV system you want fits within your designated limits before committing to CCTV installation.
