Installing CCTVs outside HDB flats is illegal, but more home owners are doing so, say merchantsJan 18, 2021 | 🚀 Fathership
A spokesperson for one Town Council, Bishan-Toa Payoh, told CNA that "BTPTC does not allow installation of CCTVs by residents outside their homes. Residents with special reasons for installing CCTVs must obtain HDB's approval prior to installation."
Despite the restrictions, the number of people buying CCTV cameras for use outside their HDB flats has increased over the past year, said merchants selling CCTVs.
Owner of Choicecycle CCTV Eric Cheong said that the sale of CCTVs for use outside homes have gone up by at least 20 per cent, and added that he sells "Hundreds of pieces" of CCTVs for residential use per month.
Most people install CCTVs outside their homes due to neighbourly disputes, theft of their belongings outside corridors or harassment by others, said I-Secure Solution sales manager Derek Peh.
