Like own CCTV? Is it even allowed?

last i hear Condo doors are firedoors, so if install CCTV means have to drill a hole tru the walls, means not fire rated anymore?

and if drilling hole for CCTV wire cannot, means drilling a hole on firedoor to install a peeping hole also cannot lo.

so if someone knocks the door, only way to check is open the door lo?

coz i know HDB don't allow CCTV need police report & permit and permit only last for 6 months. not sure about Malaysia.

CCTV can install in doorway..not much use in condo but can install

your walls already have holes for Astro, telephone, internet, gas... so one more hole wont matter

actually, no. i don't know where the holes come from but they all ended up inside nice square socket. the entrance has a plaster ceiling so i'm not sure if there are holes other than the one i drilled.

but i know there is a door bell switch and probably has a conduit leading to the DB inside the unit. and the door bell switch is probably not IP rated or firerated.

anyway because i know HDB not allowed and only temporary permit given, i was wondering how about Malaysia?

anyone heard any management don't allow CCTV or peeping hole?

asking from legal point of view, because, CCTV does infringe other people's privacy even if it's pointing at your own door people do walk by. but i'm thinking getting a narrow lens camera pointing down so it sees infront of door but not common area.

Your condo would have a handbook .

Please check usually it’s ok but your neighbors won’t appreciate if it’s staring at their door .

If it’s to the Hall way then I think no one will complain
