Digital viewfinder with camera and GDPR

Regulation 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of the EU, known as the GDPR, serves as the main piece of legislation in the field of personal data protection throughout the European Union. The previous law was therefore reduced, especially to the legislation on the competence and organization of the Office for Personal Data Protection or. some other facts.

However, the original Personal Data Protection Act contains, in its Article 2 (2) (a) (c), an exception to the scope of the General Regulation concerning the processing of personal data by natural persons in the context of purely personal or domestic activities.

The fact that the occupants of the house move around the door with a  digital camera peephole  , or their family members or guests, in most cases does not in itself constitute an interference with the rights to personal data protection, as the exception described above applies (otherwise the owner would be published an appropriate record, such as the Internet, when it is already clear that personal data will not be processed solely for personal purposes).

The problem is the situation when the peephole points directly to the door of the opposite apartment, and in the case of opening the door, it also records the space in that apartment.

This can already be considered an invasion of privacy and can be prevented by suing in civil proceedings. In accordance with the provisions of § 86 of the Civil Code, no one may interfere with the privacy of another unless he has a legal reason to do so. In particular, without the consent of this person, it is not possible to disturb his private premises, monitor his private life or make an audio or video recording.

That a digital peephole captures the interior of a foreign apartment can be very difficult to prove.

How to choose a door peephole with a camera

The digital door peephole is becoming an increasingly popular accessory in households. While simple digital door peepholes only serve to more conveniently display the space in front of the door, taller models can serve as a highly effective security system, including the ability to record, detect motion and instantly notify a cell phone when suspicious activity is detected.

As the name suggests, the multi-purpose digital door peepholes are equipped with additional elements, thanks to the fact that the peephole performs several functions. In contrast, discrete peepholes do not have additional elements on them, so their functions are usually limited. Special dolls combine multifunctional functions with a discreet look.

What do you want to use the peephole for?

Make it easier to look in front of the door

If the digital door hook is intended only for a more comfortable view of who is standing in front of the door, then one of the basic models will suffice, as all digital door holes have this function.

 

Records of visits

In order for the peephole to record visits, it must be equipped with a bell button or a motion detector.

Keep track of who ever moved at the door

For these purposes, the peephole must be equipped with a motion sensor. Another option is a WiFi module, thanks to which you will be able to connect to it online from anywhere in the world.

In order for a digital door peephole to detect vandals working naughtily in front of your door, it must meet the following 2 parameters:

 

The best door peephole on the market

Currently, the best digital door hook on the market is the Secutek SKI-ID158 for the reasons listed below.

 

  • extremely wide viewing angle (180 °)
  • completely discreet look
  • motion detection with the possibility of instant notification on a mobile phone
  • memory card recording up to 128 GB with motion detection
  • online remote preview as well as playback of pre-recorded recordings
  • night vision
  • Full HD resolution
  • gold or silver design
  • Discreet appearance
    If the peephole was visible on the digital door, the vandal would be more careful and would destroy the peephole first.

  • Motion detection The
    puppet must be able to start recording as soon as the person approaches the door. A very practical feature is the so-called pre-recording, which starts recording a few seconds before decoding the motion.

Frequently asked Questions

Is it possible to watch a picture online on a mobile phone?

 

Yes, it is. To do this, select models that are equipped with a WiFi module.

Will I have a record when someone breaks the peephole?

 

Yes. The recording is stored in a monitor located in your apartment. If someone breaks the camera, it will not affect the previously recorded shots, so you can easily find out who damaged the peephole.

 

Is the consent of the neighbors required to install the camera peephole?

Neighbors' consent is not required to install the digital peephole itself. However, the peephole must not record the common areas of the house. Usually, however, there is no way to check whether the recording is going on or not.

 

Digital door peepholes and GDPR

If a private person uses a door peephole with a camera exclusively for personal use, he is exempted from the GDPR (see paragraph 3 of the ZOOÚ) and is therefore not subject to the GDPR.
