by Get Stealth Chicago Stealth Security & Home Theatre Systems, Inc

The video surveillance, today, appears to be important, because thanks to it, people are able to protect themselves against criminals, and in case of theft, figure out who committed the act against them.


When we talk about video surveillance, however, we also talk about privacy and above all about violation of the aforementioned: to avoid running into unpleasant situations, here are the ten rules that must be respected so that video surveillance does not infringe this rule.

Specify the goal of video surveillance.


Who installs, outside their home or business, must specify what the real dangers that run in that area where their home or business is located may be.


In case of real danger, moreover, the information must be delivered, in compliance with the law, only to the competent administrations.

Correct data processing.


The recordings will obviously contain information and data, which according to the law , must be treated according to purposes that are legitimate and above all explicit and determined, or the objective for which the information is processed must be very clear.


Notify people filming


Whether a burglary or break-in occurs, or in any case an illegal action that damages a person, who uses surveillance cameras in Chicago, the owner of the house or business must warn the people in the video that they have been shot by the video camera, explaining them the reason for this registration.


This information must be given to these subjects especially if the video surveillance cameras are hidden.

Record only what you need.


It is absolutely forbidden to record more than necessary: this means that detailed shots , or with particular angles, of areas far from your home are not allowed .


It is therefore necessary to install in particular the video surveillance cameras, avoiding to collect data, or to shoot, which are not useful in any way.

Delete the recorded images.


To avoid violating privacy, it is good to make explicit how long the shots must be kept and analyzed, always warning the subjects taken.

When the pre-established deadline expires, the registrations must be completely canceled and in any case should not except indications from the guarantor exceed 48 hours.

The use of images.


The images that are recorded are used for a specific purpose , that is to protect a person against possible physical and property damage towards him: the images must therefore be used only for this purpose, and not for others, such as commercial or market analysis, since one could study the habits of people shot thanks to this particular video.

is not possible to spy on workers thanks to video surveillance , and therefore this objective must be removed from those who want to be achieved.


We need to list the subjects that can access, and therefore view, the videos collected from the filming: all the other subjects are therefore excluded from viewing, except in the case of the police or policemen during particular investigations.

In the case of restricted traffic areas, , video surveillance must comply with other legal regulations, and the images must be kept until, whoever commits an infringement, is punished with a fine.


If in addition to the video surveillance systems there are other control systems, which could damage a person's privacy, these methods must be declared together with the video surveillance.
