This is one of the most important factors that you must follow when it comes to installation of CCTV cameras at your property. It is recommended to have cameras installed at public area such as dining area, kitchen and family/baby room. Having it installed at area such as the shower or bedroom is a big no. If you have helper working at your home, homeowners should avoid having security camera installed in the helper’s room. This is to respect your helper’s privacy when it comes to their rest time.
Keep your helper informed that activities inside the house are recorded
Always keep your helper informed that the CCTV system are live and recording. Do be open to them that the CCTV are working and the purpose of having the system.
