For this question, I think most of the people should answer “ yes”.
How to use our home CCTV camera?
It is also a big problem we all should focus , as it relates to our privacy life. Some discussions from different people are as following for reference.
It's every family's nightmare. Toddler Lucie Wilding was following her mother to the car to go on the school run when she was hit by a cyclist who was riding on the pavement, and dragged along the floor. The cyclist fell off his bike, before riding away without an apology.
Lucie escaped with cuts and bruises - and the whole thing was captured on the family's home CCTV. The horrific footage powerfully shows the dangers of cycling on pavements, and has played a part in a public campaign to identify the cyclist responsible. It's an interesting argument for the benefits of home CCTV.
The police are also keen to encourage use of CCTV.Who said more homeowners should install CCTV cameras outside their houses. He said homeowners and businesses could help the police to solve crimes, and encouraged people to install them at eye-level so facial recognition could be used to identify criminals.
The jury is still out on the actual effectiveness of CCTV in public spaces, but it seems to have the biggest deterrent effect in pre-planned crime, so a visible camera may stop your house being specifically targeted. Research has also showed that it helps police identify and catch offenders, so it could help catch whoever is behind a series of crimes, such as vandalism or anti-social behaviour.
Police advice says that for private households, better lighting, alarm systems or locks are more important to security than a CCTV system. You can also get arguably the same deterrent effect with a dummy CCTV camera - but experienced thieves may not be fooled.
So home CCTV can be useful - but make sure you know the rules before you set it up. Don't film beyond the boundaries of your property unless you have a very good reason, prioritise basic security like locks and lighting, and definitely don't film other people's homes.
