Installation of outdoor CCTV camera

Want to install outdoor cctv camera for surveillance of our property. Recently our neighbor along with their family members/relatives tried to trespass our property/vacant land and on objection they allegedly beaten my brother and physically assaulted my mother and a criminal case was lodged. They have lodged a counter case. We want to keep our property in surveillance. Do we need any permission to install cctv camera outdoor. The camera will mainly capture our property & road but since camera has wide angle, it is capturing some portion of others property/house building (almost 10Mtr apart). Kindly suggest.

No permission is needed for the surveillance of the private property provided the angle of the camera in question doesn't breach the right of privacy of the neighbours.

As per your query I'm satisfied that the property you're residing in is your personal property. According to law, there is no need for any sort of permission required for installation of CCTV system or any other gadgets in your property, provided that the angle of the installation of any such gadget shouldn't be such that it hinders the privacy of the neighbors as well.

For Eg:- Installation of CCTV for surveillance of the perimeter is good to go. But installation of CCTV at an angle that it captures the bedroom or any other part of the neighbors house is inappropriate.

I hope you understand the logic and idea behind it, and know the way of doing the thing right.

Hope it Helps
