What is surveillance?
As we mentioned at the outset, surveillance is a relatively broad term. The law often refers to surveillance as "television surveillance". According to the Television Surveillance Act, television surveillance covers the surveillance of persons that occurs continuously or is repeated at regular intervals by means of a remote-controlled or automatically operating camera.
Surveillance can be a great way to secure your home from burglary by having a deterrent effect. Should you still be exposed to burglary and theft, intelligent surveillance can help police on the trail of the burglar. Thus, monitoring can also have a documenting effect.
At IPcam-shop you will find a wide range of surveillance cameras for both indoor and outdoor use. But you can also find alarm systems that can help alert and call call centers and police if your home or business is exposed to burglary while you are not present.
Rules for monitoring private land
As a private person, you must be aware of a number of rules for surveillance if, for example, you choose to set up a surveillance camera.
It is legal to video-monitor one's own private land with surveillance cameras. On the other hand, it is not permitted and legal to monitor the land of the neighbor or other private individuals.
In addition, it is also not legal to monitor public areas. This could, for example, be the sidewalk. Therefore, you need to be careful and cautious when setting up video surveillance on your private plot.
It may also be worthwhile to set up signage with your plot video-monitored. However, this is not a legal requirement.
Rules for monitoring companies
As a company, whether you work in a café with guests or in an industrial area, there should always be a sign that there is video surveillance (both inside and outside).
In this way, you make both customers and employees aware of this. It is therefore legal to monitor your business
New rules for monitoring in 2018
In addition, in 2018, it was made legal for traders to share video material from burglary or attempted burglary with other companies. That way, one could make his neighbors aware of thieves in the area.
The change was made just to be able to warn each other about the movements of criminals in the area. However, a number of requirements must be met for it to be legal to share these videos with others:
#1 The footage may only show the persons suspected of committing something criminal (eg burglary). Other people in the picture who can be seen and identified must be obscured or removed.
#2 The criminal act must first be reported to the police before the footage can be shared.
#3 You must have a reasonable belief that the person on the recordings will commit crime with the companies with whom you may share the recordings.
#4 If you share your video material, do so in closed and secure systems. Do not share the footage through the cloud or on social media. A USB stick is an approved method
