If a camera is installed in the street and its view stretches across my yard and I have a large gate through which you can see, is that considered as my private space?

What if I do something in my personal space, even if it is unlawful, would it be acceptable to make use of this footage? I believe it should not.

How do you control the setup and use of such a project?

A bigger concern than this is, the fact that criminals get away with all sorts of crime, just because our system allows for it.

Even bigger...
What happens to the funds allocated to our Judicial and Legal System? Why is the Police force getting weaker? Why should private companies continue to provide the services we already pay for with Tax money?

Criminals are not scared of cameras unless the cameras are monitored 24/7 with almost instantaneous armed response, which the SAPS can't do. The areas that need the security the most are the informal settlements and low-income areas so instead of more money being spent to 'monitor' people, spend this money on more police, better trained police, more judges and courts, stricter penalties and more and better prisons.

Who would pay for it? The average middle-income resident is already under enormous pressure to meet monthly commitments.

As long we’ll agree that whoever manages those connected cctv won’t cell our data to the high bidder nor use it against us.

I live in an area where crime is rife and the supportive CPF unit cannot do the monitoring all on their own. Where some community members may agree with having cameras installed, it should be considered that lower income groups in the area will not be able to support this venture. Another point to consider is whether law enforcement will be able to use "face recognition" as a means to apprehend and convict! Providing footage of any crime will not necessarily mean that SAP will use this to make arrests! SA is wayward with high technology and this will merely serve as a deterrent.

The country needs to be watched and people involved in crime should be recognized so that can be successfully prosecuted

I believe a camera surveillance solution will greatly add to managing and preventing crime and will assist in investigation of crime
