Guidance on the use of Domestic CCTV

Nov 22nd '21

DPC’s (Data Protection Commission) approach to Domestic CCTV The prevalence of the use of recording devices by private individuals to protect their homes and property (including CCTV and smart doorbells) raises a number of challenges for the regulation of the processing of personal data by the operators of these devices.


This also reflects wider societal issues associated with the accessibility to, and the usage of, surveillance technology by private individuals who may not appreciate their obligations in relation to the rights of others, including privacy and data protection rights. The purpose of this document is to set out the Data Protection Commission’s general approach to complaints from individuals relating to the operation of domestic CCTV. This approach is grounded in the DPC’s forthcoming Regulatory Strategy 2022 – 2027 and reflects the DPC’s assessment of the most appropriate way to handle complaints of this nature having regard to the risks posed to data subjects and the application of the DPC’s resources.

About the DPC

The Data Protection Commission (DPC) is the national independent authority in Ireland responsible for upholding the fundamental right of individuals in the European Union (EU) to have their personal data protected. Accordingly, the DPC is the Irish supervisory authority responsible for monitoring the application of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and we also have functions and powers related to other regulatory frameworks, including the Irish ePrivacy Regulations (2011) and the EU Directive known as the Law Enforcement Directive (LED). The statutory powers, duties and functions of the DPC are as established under the Data Protection Act 2018, which gives further effect to the GDPR, and also gives effect to the LED.
