Ring doorbells and CCTV


Installing CCTV and smart doorbell cameras can be a great way to improve the security of your home. It is important to use them considerately and responsibly, and to ask permission from Beyond Housing before installation.

Beyond Housing has guidelines that must be followed when it comes to the installation of CCTV and other security options. This is because it can impact the privacy of others, and it is important to make sure that everyone’s rights are respected.

Please adhere to government guidance on the use of domestic CCTV.

Where permission is given, and you are installing your CCTV or smart doorbell cameras, there are some important considerations to keep in mind:

  • Make sure the devices are only pointed at your own property and capturing only your own home and garden. This will help to avoid any potential conflicts or disputes and keeps you safely within the law
  • Make sure that the devices are not intrusive or obtrusive. For example, a CCTV camera that is too large or positioned in an obvious place can be intimidating for passers-by and neighbours. Similarly, a smart doorbell cameras that is too loud or frequently activated can be a nuisance for those in the vicinity
  • Flats/properties with a communal hallway must only show your flat door areas.
