 One word of caution for anyone setting up a webcam in the UK (or, indeed, any other part of Europe these days): GDPR. If your webcam points to anything outside of your own property boundary, you are considered to come under the remit of the GDPR and you are considered to be a 'data controller'​ for the purposes of the GDPR regulations. What that means in practice is pretty much as follows: One word of caution for anyone setting up a webcam in the UK (or, indeed, any other part of Europe these days): GDPR.

 Regarding point 4: it is unlikely, I think, that anyone walking up or down our road would write to me saying, "You would have videoed me yesterday at 11:40am: please remove me from your system",​ but if they did, I'd have to respond to their request. I could decline to delete anything, since it might be too difficult, or would compromise the purpose of the webcam surveillance in the first place -but as long as I responded within a week with an answer, either in the negative or not, I would be GDPR compliant. Regarding point 4: it is unlikely, I think, that anyone walking up or down our road would write to me saying, "You would have videoed me yesterday at 11:40am: please remove me from your system",​ but if they did, I'd have to respond to their request.
