Leaving aside the data protection/GDPR side of the debate (if there is any), I am toying with the idea of installing some kind of CCTV system at Skol Towers. I'm not massively worried about security, don't have a burglar alarm as I believe they are next to useless and mostly ignored, but have had a number of minor incidents in the last year or two that make me think it might be worth recording what is going-on on the driveway and at the Fr & Rr doors. Mostly to cover the cars as this is where the problems have occurred. My thoughts are two cameras at the front to cover the front door and driveway from both sides, a camera at the back/kitchen door covering door and towards the rear (locked) gate and finally a camera inside the house in my bike room. There are 3 concerns I want to cover; Interference with vehicles. Twice in the last year I have had things taken from the back of my old landrover, and once my wife's car interior was rummaged through, they took some loose change and were perhaps looking to see if there was a spare key? As this car is almost always habitually locked it has got me wondering how often the car doors are actually being tried if they happened to get in on the rare occasion it hadn't been locked? Burglary for bicycles, I have a few decent ones so these may well have been clocked by local magpies? Burglary for car keys. We don't have attractive cars of the high performance German saloon or bank-job rally special type but my old landrover has a reputation for being stolen for parts! I want a camera system suitable for the following. Recording footage that might identify a 'career' thief who enters the house for bicycles or car keys. Monitor petty interference with the cars (trying door handles etc) to gauge how frequently this is happening and if further action is necessary. Initial search for a DIY install option has turned up these:- www.screwfix.com/p/swann-swdvk-845804-uk-8-channel-1080p-cctv-dvr-kit-4-cameras/1394X? www.aldi.co.uk/1080p-4-hd-camera-home-cctv-kit/p/011860271175400? I would prefer something discreet, don't really want all and sundry knowing it is there, might make them think I have something worth stealing Would probably end up painting the camera casings black to try and hide them against the black soffits and gutters unless there is a better, less visible option. So, over to you guys. Any suggestions or experience in fitting/using such CCTV systems? Any one in the trade that can give me any hints or tips on best practice or kit?
