Contemporary CCTV cameras will often come equipped with in-built infrared LED lighting to allow for dark conditions. Any infrared CCTV camera will record video in black and white during the hours of darkness and at a fractionally lower resolution than the camera's daylight footage. You can always put in additional security lighting with special lamps that will create a natural light, if there is an excessively large difference in resolution. Such lighting equipment can create "daylight" conditions for your cameras, as well as triggering a bright light when any movement is identified by your camera.

If you choose to use motion sensitive lighting with your CCTV cameras, you must ensure that the light does not shine straight at the eyes of passing motorists, or onto a next door neighbour's property and garden.


Domestic CCTV systems which capture images over the edges of the perimeter of your property, into a neighbour's garden or onto the highway, now come under the Data Protection Act. This simply means that your recordings are regulated, but does not make them illegal to use.

This includes recording in locations such as a footpath, a next door neighbours' garden or a main road.

If your system is recording such images, it does not mean that you are actually breaking the law, but under the Data Protection Act (2018) you're regarded as a "data controller", and consequently you will have to comply with your legal obligations in these circumstances.

So that the legal rights of people whose images you're capturing are safeguarded, you need to show that you're collecting images and footage in ways that follow the data protection laws and regulations.

If you're recording video footage and images beyond the perimeter of your property:

  • You must put up clear signage to indicate that recording is occurring.
  • You should make certain that you do not record more footage that is absolutely necessary.
  • You should only keep hold of recorded images for the time that they're needed, and erase them on a regular basis.
  • You should respond to subject access requests (SARs) made by any person.
  • You must be able to fully explain your reasons for capturing these pictures if asked.
  • Unless needed for an actual legal dispute, you must delete images of specific people when asked to do so.
  • You must have a clear and justifiable reason for collecting such footage.
  • You must be able to safeguard the security of recorded images and keep them away from the eyes of others.
