Are Doorbell Cameras Legal? Legal Issues UK
Are doorbell cameras and such devices legal?
Technically, smart doorbells are legal under British law, but it’s all about how you use them.
This was deemed to be a breach of privacy, and Woodard now faces steep fines of up to £100,000. The case also raises questions about the ethics of using such technology, with many more homeowners facing the possibility of prosecution.
How should you install smart doorbells?

Homeowners wanting to use smart doorbells can minimise the risk of court action by putting up signs which warn others that video cameras are being used on their property.
