Can you request to look at CCTV?
You can ask to view any CCTV or body worn video camera footage that you appear in. Under data protection law, you have a right to see any pictures if you are the subject. Please note that the Royal Borough of Greenwich only holds CCTV or body worn video footage recorded by the Council’s cameras and staff.
Where is CCTV footage stored?
For full video surveillance systems, recorded footage is stored on an external recorder. In IP systems, these are called NVRs, or network video recorders. In analog systems, they’re called DVRs, or digital video recorders.
How many days CCTV footage is kept?
Generally, 31 days is the time that most CCTV users keep their recorded footage and it is also recommended by the police. However, this duration may be adjusted according to the severity of the incident.
Why is my security camera not recording?
If your CCTV camera is working fine but the DVR is not recording anything, common culprits include misconfiguration, lack of storage space, and failing DVR components. Don’t despair: modern DVR boxes are pretty friendly and easy to troubleshoot. Check that recording is enabled. It may sound obvious, but it happens.
Why can’t I view my CCTV on 4G?
Either you haven’t configured your router properly or you are using the wrong IP address. To access the DVR from a different Network (for example 3G/ 4G or some distant Wifi’s), you need to use the Public IP address of the internet connection to which the DVR is connected (Your Internet Address).
How can I view my CCTV camera remotely?
How to view your IP camera remotely via a web browser
- Find your camera’s IP address.
- Open a web browser and type the IP address.
- Go to SETTING > BASIC > Network > Information to find the HTTP port number used by the camera.

Do all security cameras need Internet?
Performance is What Matters Most IP surveillance cameras can also work without an internet connection. So long as the cameras are connected to the recorder with ethernet cables, you can monitor your properties seamlessly on a monitor or an HDTV.
What are the rules on 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 I give CCTV footage to someone?
You are unable to request footage of somebody else. If we were to give you images of someone else without their consent, this would breach the privacy rights of those individuals. Only the police or relevant statutory authorities can request such footage.
Can a Neighbour have CCTV?
Data protection laws don’t apply if the cameras cover only the user’s own private property, including their garden. Then neighbours, passers-by and anyone else caught on camera will have rights under the data protection laws. Capturing and recording such images is not itself a breach of the data protection laws.
