Who can view CCTV footage?
By law, anyone can be offered access to CCTV footage in which they appear, upon request. Any employee can ask to see footage of themselves, but cannot be granted access to CCTV footage of someone else. The officially-recognized way to request access is through a SAR, which an employer has to respond to within 40 days.
Can you ask to see security footage?

For the most part, you don’t need to put a sign if you are going to be using a video camera in a public or private space. This means you can use a camera in front of your home without worrying about putting up a sign. A business can place a camera without telling anyone as long as it is placed in a public place.

Can my boss watch me on CCTV from home?
An employer can monitor their CCTV cameras from anywhere, but they must adhere to data protection law in doing so. If they installed cameras and started monitoring them from anywhere without letting employees know, they would almost certainly be breaking the law.
What are the rules on home CCTV?
If your CCTV captures images beyond your property boundary, such as your neighbours’ property or public streets and footpaths, then your use of the system is subject to the data protection laws. This does not mean you are breaking the law. But it does mean that, as the CCTV user, you are a data controller.
Can you point a security camera at your neighbor?
The bottom line is that it’s completely legal for your neighbor to point a security camera at your property if it’s in plain view and visible from the streets, but there are some further nuances to elaborate on. Just because it’s legal, doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do about it if your privacy is encroached upon.
