    I believe home CCTV may have been discussed before, If so, then please humour me.
    Im thinking about a two outdoor cameras HHD recorder with a reasonable quality. No 480 stuff. Theres a ton of stuff on Amazon and it can get very confusing. Looking for hints tips, experiences before any decisions are made. Thanks guys.
    I should add:
    All I want is local HHD recording.
    Wired cameras
    All configured and viewed via monitor
    (No iPhone) no ( cloud storage etc:)

    A colleague of mine bought a kit from Maplin, not too dissimilar to this one and it has stood him well for a few years now. With the current 20% cashback offer, that puts that kit at just under £220 which isn't bad, and monitors aren't all that expensive nowadays either

      Just be careful you don't breach any legislation regarding the code of practice under the Data Protection Act 1998 which covers the use of CCTV in 2000. Are you thinking along the lines of security for use of the cameras, Capney??

      The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) issued its judgment in the case of Ryneš on 11 December 2014. In this judgment, the CJEU concluded that where a fixed surveillance camera faces outwards from an individual’s private domestic property and it captures images of individuals beyond the boundaries of their property, particularly where it monitors a public space, the recording cannot be considered as being for a purely personal or household purpose. This means that cameras attached to a private individual’s home may, in certain circumstances, no longer be exempt from the requirements of the DPA under section 36. Those circumstances are likely to include where the camera monitors any area beyond the interior and exterior limits of that individual’s home. This would include any camera to the extent that it covered, even partially, a public space such as the pavement or street. It would also cover cameras which captured areas such as neighbours’ gardens. This decision does not mean that using such a camera is not possible but it does mean that individuals will have to ensure that its use is legitimate under the DPA. The CJEU made clear that use of cameras to protect a property in this way can meet the legitimate interest condition in the legislation. The ICO has produced a short complementary piece of guidance for the public on how to ensure the use of a surveillance camera on a private domestic property complies with the DPA. The ICO will continue to assess the potential wider impact of the CJEU’s decision on other surveillance technologies and may add further updates to this code. This code is primarily aimed at businesses and organisations that routinely capture individuals’ information on their surveillance systems. Some specific uses of image recording equipment are not intended to be covered in this code, although they may still be covered by the requirements of the DPA. The covert surveillance activities of public authorities are not covered here because they are governed by the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA) 2000 and Regulation of Investigatory Powers Version 1.1 8 21/05/2015 (Scotland) Act (RIPSA) 2000. This type of recording is covert and directed at an individual or individuals1 Example: The police monitoring and recording the movement of a suspected drug dealer with covert surveillance equipment to identify whether they are committing any related offences. The use of conventional cameras (not CCTV) by the news media or for artistic purposes, such as for film making, are not covered by this code as an exemption within the DPA applies to activities relating to journalistic, artistic and literary purposes. However, this code does apply to information collected by surveillance systems that is then provided to the media. Not all sections of the code will be fully relevant to all surveillance systems; this will depend upon the extent and use of the information. Although small-scale users, such as small retailers, are covered by the DPA, they are, are covered by the DPA, they are unlikely to have sophisticated systems, so many of this code’s more detailed provisions will be inappropriate. Appendix 2 provides special guidance, as an alternative to the full code, for very limited use of surveillance systems where privacy risks are small and resources are limited. If you are a small scale user, but you wish to use your surveillance system for any purpose that is not covered in the checklist, you should read the full code. Note: The DPA applies to information captured"

      Thank you for the above. Heady reading indeed. I have read shortened version of this DPA act. all to be considered before any move is made.

              We have a system that is installed in the loft with 4 cameras, have also installed a wireless
              router in the loft as well so I didn't have to run any network cables to the loft, but
              those home network plugs will do the same job...........it just means I can see all the
              cameras on my smart phone anywhere in the world....I don't know the model number
              of the system but its made by Swann and Maplins sell them :)

              Think the system was about £220 and I had to fit a 1tb hard drive as well and also buy the wireless router (about £40) but you could save that £40 if you can run a network
              cable from the system to your router.
