guía protección datos personales

This guide wants to help you to understand the present law Reglamento Europeo y del Consejo de 27 de Abril del 2016 2016/679. So, we´re going to show the citizens rights about protection datas in EU. This information considers the rights form the law Ley Orgánica 3/2018 of 5th December of2018, too.


Some years ago, before masive use of Internet and computing,  information was stored by company, like personal data, was limited. Files was composed by address, ID number, marital status and telephone number.

Step by step, administration and private companies added more and more information to their files, datas like: bank details, credit card details, email, health information and life styles.

Last years, incorportation of datas to this kind of files has been masive. New tools to process these datas and new technologies have been a truly revolution in our society. Many times we give more information that it´s required. Then, they could know all of our insterests, family situation, work situations… So, it has been necessary to develop a new European Regulation to limit this activity. Especially to fix civil and penal responsabilities.


Development of new technologies has done necessary to update the European Regulation 46/1995 of 24/11/1995, with a new Regulation and a lay Ley Orgánica 3/2015 of 5th December to Data Protection.

These new limitations weren´t well accepted by some USA companies, that wanted the autocontrol about data protection.  Some of them like Facebook, Google or Apple never felt good with kind of limitations. In spite of this, they offered their services to UE members.

To avoid this control, they joined under SAFE HARBOR agreement. It meant that the comany received  a “presumption of adapation”  to avoid the limits of European Regulation.

Fortunately, the EU Court, 6th October of 2015, found SAFE HARBOR invalid, then the companies had to get a protection of users rights and to adapt their service to new regulation.


The purpose of Regulation  46/1995 of 24/11/1995, the European Purpose and Conceil of 27th April of 2016 and Spanish Law 3/2018 del 5th December of 2018 is:

  •  To protect personal datas.
  • To protect the human rights.
  • To control the information about personal data.

The laws are created beacuse the companies store too much information. These laws come late, but the speed of technologies does complicate to forsee to situations.

EU members have new laws to protect and to make companies inform previously about the datas that they store. Also the laws make companies use properly the information, respect the law and keep safe  the files that they manage.

The file managers have to give clear information, before and after to collect personal datas. Also they have to inform if the infomation takes a risk.


Kids have a special protection. This treatment is legal when the agreement is given by the legal guardian. The agreement has to be clear by the legal guardian.

Some personal datas always must be prohibited to proccess. We are talking about ethnic details, politics, religious, sexual or genetic details. It could be an exception when there is a explicit agreement to:

  • To have a affiliation to some services.
  • To protect vital people´s interests.

Special attention has the medical datas that are necessary to evaluate the work capacity, medical diagnosis, etc. Workers know the results of medical test , but the company couldn´t access to them. The only result shall be known if the worker could develop correctly his work or not.

People have to know:

  • Who is the file´s owner.
  • Which datas are stored.
  • Which is the file purpose.
  • Which are the possible recipients.
  • How long are the data going to be sotered

If the datas are collected without the authorizations of people, they could carry out their rigjts to know where the datas come from.

The interested person has always the right to change the imprecise datas, and to supress them.


It has been necessary to create, in Spain, a control authority: AGENCIA DE PROTECCIÓN DE DATOS ESPAÑOLA. The agency watchs over the respect and compliance of those laws. To be sure about this compliance, it has been necesassry to create some penalise laws.

Companies have to define who are the file responsibles and whis is their liability.

The Regulations sets 3 different levels to sort  the infractions: mild, serious, so serious. Pescription deadlines are:

  • 3 years to “So Serious” penalties.
  • 2 year to “Serious” penalties.
  • 1 year to “Mild” penalties.

The files responsible have to keep safe all the registered datas. Law unfulfilment has a penalty until 20.000.000 € or 4% of  invoicing.

Big companies has been setenced with millionaire penalties beause they did bad use of information. Also, small companies are sentenced beacuse they send emails to clients and breaking thery rignts, as you could check in this link.


Newness of this law is the forget right.  Citizens could require to delete the obsolete or inexact information, even though it was true. It´s never be something easy. Sometimes, it usally prevails the right information above the personal rights, especailly if we talk about famous and public person.

Also, we could order the forget right when the datas have been collect by illict ways or without authorization.


Overall, companies could collect the required datas to develop their activity. The could do it if the worker privacy is not invaded.

First hot point is to collect images from work areas or work vehicles.  Usually, this practice is allowed if the cameras respect the Agencia de Protección de Datos´s rules. Recordings have to be justified and and don´t invade the workers privacy. These recordings don´t catch sounds and the cameras couldn´t be installed in toilets or relaxing areas.

In these moments, geolocations are very important to the company. Devices intalled in work vehicles could collecy movement information. It´s logical if  these datas are necessary to develop activities. Devices never could catch sounds.

Cameras installation or geolocations device have to be notified previously. It is illegal to have hidden sytem without previous information.


Agencia Española de Protección de Datos has an easy and practical guide to inform about all you need to install security cameras. You could take a look this link.

With the new regulations, you don´t have to register the installation at the Agencia Española de Protección de Datos. It has been replace for a file with the resposible and activities details. It has to be aviable to autorities required.

The security cameras have to be indicated on the entrances. Then, affeted people always know tthat there are cameras working and they look the informative pannel. This pannel has to inform about responsible´s file details.

Storage of these images musn´t exceed 30 days,  except images collect from Police and they are neccesary to investigations.

If there are people want to access the installation, the responsible has to make a record of the person that wants to access and a photo of him. The responsible never gives access to images form other persons.

Some companies or public departments have to be obliged to install a surveillance system. For example, electric or water supply companies, bank sector, jewellery shops or security companies.  They have to obey the sector regulations.

Communities could install security cameras in private areas. They have to limit the records to accesa areas, public streets. This images couldn´t be watched on communal channels.


Averías frecuentes CCTV

When you need to display images form a security camera, sometimes and often you couldn´t do it. Security cameras to surveillance or access control need a maintenance to dicrease the risk and failures. We´re going to show you the common failures that we use to find.


fallo eléctrico

Cameras and recordings need a electric supply. If the supply system fails, it couldn´t store the images.

Our suggestion is that you install a SAI ( Ininterrupted Supply System) that gives electricity to recording when there is a electric failure. Also you will get to keep safe the electronic devices.


Hard Disk  stores the images, it´s call  HDD (Hard Disk Drive) and ithas a limit capacity. When it´s full, the images are rewriten wih the new récords.disco duro averidado The number of rewritings is variable and as you know, everything has a lifetime. So sometimes the system is connected, cameras could be displayed but they aren´t been recording in the hard disk.


Recording takes images from different installedcameras. It processes and stores them during programmed time.cámara lente sucia Sometime the problem could be caused because the camera hasn´t electric supply or the energy power is damaged.

Sometimes you could find dirty or unfocused lens. It happens when cameras are localed on outside areas. You have to check and clean frecuently the lens to get always a good quality images.


It´s usual that security cameras are connected to recordings by a 5/6 wire or UTP wire. These wires could be installed inside a pipe and to cross cable deterioradothough union box. Humidity could damage, passing of time, the material of wiring.

Also, it´s usual that rodents brake the wiring and they leave the recording without connection . 


Security cameras are supplied by low voltage. It means that we need a littlefuente alimentación averiada trasnformer between the outside power supply and our device. Sometime, the problem comes from this transformer, like everything it has a lifetime too.

For all these reasons we suggest to do a regular and programmed maintenace of your CCTV systems. If yoy don´t do it, maybe when you´ll need to get some images,  your equipment shall not to be recording.


cámara de videovigilancia security cameras

It is difficult to have a video surveillance system well adapted to our needs. This sector has a large range of posibilities, so we could choose since a simple camera until  tricky installations with domotic devices.

Let´s go to see cameras, a device with a lot of posibilities and versions. What kind of cameras are there? What have we to know about them?… Today, we´re going to explain averything.


We could be lost inside the ocean of different models, so we have to be clear with the use of cameras.

To start the selection and dismiss models, we could think about the angle view that we´ll need. Then, we´ll know if we have to looking for big angle cameras, 360º, etc.

If we need something more sofisticated, we could find cameras that detect movements, or night view cameras.

Always you have to bear in mind cameras have to be configured, so if you get ones with easy setting, it´s avoid you to contact with qualified people to work them.


We´ll show you a cameras listing that you could find:

  • Inside Cameras: They are cheapest and easiest models that you´ll find.
  • Movement or Zoom Cameras: these are the best cameras if you want to control large areas.
  • Night View Cameras: they use a led system to get a good quality. These devices are so expensive.
  • Hiding Cameras: we are talking about integrated cameras inside different objets. They are used to police investigations and they are usefull to that.
  • IP Cameras: they are the most popular model at the moment. They could send images by Internet.
  • Tamper-proof Cameras: they have fixed cover mades by a strong material.
  • WIFI/Wireless Cameras: say goodbye to complex system and meters of wiring. These cameras work by batteries and don´t need power supplier.
  • Outside Cameras: they seem a tamper-proof camera but their are made to hold out bad weather.

Other listing is about the location. Then, we´ll have:

  • Cube Cameras: to outside areas.
  • Box Cameras: to inside areas.
  • Bullet Cameras: they are perfect to outside areas.
  • Domo Cameras: they are ready to outisde and inside areas as well.


There are some elements to bear in mind when we´ll fix our new cameras:

  • We have to find a visible place, then we´ll get a deterrent effect to thieves.
  • A great place to fix the cameras is the access ways. We have to be care that cameras don´t take image of private areas.
  • Perfect height is around 2.5m, we´ll get a great angle to have a good view and control.


A videosurveillance system could give you great advantages:

  • Since psychological view, a CCTV system could give you an extra calm and you´ll feel safier. It´s a derrent element.
  • We could control everything. The cameras record every moment 24/7.
  • To get a surveillance system doen´t mean that you have to pay a lot of money.  You´ll find a differents prices, since a simple installation until complex with domotic devices.
  • Images recorded give us aditional information to help with community problems.


Probably, when you ´re goin to get a camera, you could buy a complete CCTV kit.  It´s a great option, that you´ll find everyting to have and manage a surveillance system. There are some elements you will bear in mind:

  • Recorder: it informs about number of channels, cameras that system shall have.
  • Connectivity: today the WIFI CCTV is the best option.
  • Image Quality: we suggest to get a HD camera to 1080 px.
  • Hard Disk : to save the images, 1TB is enought to 8 channels instalation.

We hope to clear your mind and help you to get a good decision.



Squatting becomes, last years, a big worry. This concers affects to owners, neighbours and spanish society at all. All of us meet families with second residences, close to the beach or mountain, that are exposed along  the year to this problem.

The late answer form Spanish Tribunals and squatter´s impunity bring to squatting the easiest options to enjoy a house without costs. Prevention is the best way to avoid and fight this situation. We bring you some advices to prevent squatting.


It seems obviousness, but there are a lo of houses and plots that are been ocuppied beacuse the community´s external gates aren´t good locked. Other worry situation is when the automatic gate are been opened, by neighbourds negligence, and external people could come in to the urbanization.

To avoid these situations we just need the colaboration of neighbourdhood. Also, there are a lot of automatic gates that ensure the perfect closing for good price.


To get an access system that prohibit the keys/fobs copies by unauthorised people, it´s the focus to incease our security.

En  nuestra web puedes encontrar  el sistema perfecto para evitar la copia no autorizada de llaves, Winkhaus BlueCompact,  y mandos que no se pueden duplicar sin permiso,

Visit our website and you´find a perfect system to avoid the unauthorised key copies, Winkhaus BlueCompact, and fobs that couldn´t be copied without authorisation.


If we have a surveillance system installed, we´ll help to decrease the old disagreements between neighbours. The scratchs or punctures on the cars arent´s usual as time beofre.

A surveillance cameras in communities avoid to unathorised poeople to access and squat the houses. Squatters avoid to force entrances to open when they are under surveillance system.


It´s better prevent than treat it, and the alarm´s cost, in this moment, are very cheap. You could get one since 49€ per month.

If you have a squatting, the alarm system sends an alert, at the moment, to receiver central where they verify if it´s a robbery or squatting.


protección de datos en cctv

With the new Data Protection Regulation, last 25th May of 2018, the surveillance sector has changed some elements. We have to be clear with our steps to comply with the law, when we are installing the CCTV system and with the recorder images from it.

This new regulation is loooking for to be adapted to Regulation (UE) 2016/679 European Parlament and Council of 27th April 2016, about the protection of personal datas and free flow of them

In this article we´ll see how the surveillance sector is affected by new Data Protection Regulation.


Since year, when we installed CCTV system we had to inform to Agencia Española de Protección de DAtos. NOTA system, did remember? guided us to fullfil the form and after that we sent to AEPD.

Now, with new Data Protection Regulation, you don´t need this notification. Only you have to fullfil an internal document. It´s explained in 30th article of the new regulation.


Each responsible person, or agent, takes note of the activities done by his responsability. This register shall have the next information:

  • The name and contact deails of responsible, co-responsible, the agent and data protection delegate.
  • The purpose of the system.
  • The categories description of interested, personal datas of categories, the recipients data, third countries and international organizations too.
  • In case of datas transfer to a third country and international organization, we have to inform about that country and/or organization and the documentation (49th article, 1st section, 2nd paragraph)
  • Preview perdiods to delete the data categories, when it could be possible.
  • Description of security measures (32nd article, 1st section) when it could be possible.

The register shall have:

  • The name and contact deails of responsible, co-responsible, the agent and data protection delegate.
  • Las categorías de tratamientos efectuados por cuenta de cada responsable. 
  • The type of processing made  by each responsible.
  • En el caso de trasferencia de datos a un tercer país u organización internacional, se ha de identificar dicho país y/u organización junto con la documentación de garantías adecuadas (recogido en el Artículo 49, apartado 1º, párrafo 2º)
  • Description of security measures (32nd article, 1st section) when it could be possible.

Above information has to be on paper and electronic format. Also, the responsibles have to make aviable to Authority.

Everything, looking until now, isn´t obligatory to companies with less than 250 employees. Unless it is a risk to freedoms and rights of them.


We´re going to stand out the aspects of new regulation that affect to surveillance installation:

  • Cameras location: recorder imagenes have to respect the relax and private areas.
  • Screens location: screens have to be located inside limited area.
  • Saved images: the images will be saved for a month.
  • Duty to inform: we have to inform about the CCTV installaton by a informative poster. This element is composed by a pictogram and text where inform how you could access to replace your data.
  • Schedule control: we have to inform the employees if the cameras are used to control entrances and exits.
  • Right to access to images: you could order it with a ID copy, date and hour that you want to see. The images don´t be showed directly to others. If they couldn´t be watched, we have to give a document with this information.

Here you are a link with a guide form AEPD to help you to supplement the information.

Google Assitant

Perphaps, our country is discovering all the functions of the voice assistants, but there are places like USA where these devices are integrated day-to-day.

Para aquellos que no estéis familiarizados con los asistentes de voz, hablamos de un asistente virtual con inteligencia artificial que, a través de conversaciones bidireccionales, permite comunicarse con el dispositivo por voz y éste procesa, interpreta y responde al usuario.

The devices mostly known are: Siri by Apple, Google Assistant by Google, Alexa by Amazon and Cortana by  Microsoft.

These software are integrated in differents hardwares, for example:

  1.  Smart speakers like Amazing Echo, Google Home or Microsoft.
  2. Messages App like M by Facebook Messengers.
  3. Integrated software in systems like Siri, Cortana or Google Allo.
  4. Electrical appliance, vehicles, smart watches, clothes…

Today we´re going to talk about Google´s voice assitant, Google Assistant.

There is a fight with the others voice assistants to get the first place on this sector. Google has done a big investment an it gets to be on the top of them:

Time to Answer: Google Assistant offers faster answer than the other assitants.

Background Noise: Google Assistant and Siri work so good with background noises.

Best results: Google gives better results than Alexa. Google uses its onw searcher to give better results. Meanwhile, Amazon assitant looks for around its webs and showed products.

Integration: the integration is a key element. Google Assistant is ready to be used by Android or iOS system, meanwhile Siri only works with iOS system.

Personalized results: Google has a lot of personal data, it doesn´t mean that it hasn´t privacity, when you looking for something. Then, it could give you a personalized results.

Cost/Quality Balance: with a price of 120€, Google speaker isn´t the cheapest device, as Alexa is, but it doesn´t get the 350€ of Apple assistant. It´s a great balance of quality/price.


If we think what could Google Home do for us if we install it at home, we´ll discover that:

– We connect it with the automatic shutters and we could open and close them with our voice.

– We connect it with our automatic garage gates and with our voice we could open and close the home access.

Electric devices could be connected and we could swith on without force.

This is only the begining of a technology with a great future.


surveillance project

If we want to install a surveillance system, in a private house or community, we should be clear about some aspects. How many cameras will we need? What is our budget to get it? We´ll have a lot of doubts about our installation.

Powermatic gives you a list of some points that you have to be clear to get an adparted surveillance system to your needs.


Before we go out to get the best price, it´s necessary to control some datas and aspects. For explame, the perimeter that we´ll need to cover with our surveillance system. It shall determine the numer of cameras and meters of wiring we´ll need.


To get a perfect view from cameras, the location shall be the key. We recommend you to visit the place where we´ll install the CCTV, to look for the best place to set the cameras. We could value if there are element to block the views,  the blid spots, etc. So, we could value the areas light and we could select the correct camera model.


We have to be clear with the infrastucture we have. For example, if we´ll go to install a CCTV with IP, we´ll need a Ethernet network. So, we´ll have to know if we have this network and its conditions. We´ll have some doubts like, are there free ports? could the cameras be charged? etc.


When we finish our installation, we´ll have to define its management. Who, from where… Doubts that will be solve to get a great screem platform.


We have to be sure that servers aren´t be share and they are being working 24h. Also,we recommend you to have system that still working when a electric failure happens.


Always we recommend to contact with qualified technicians to this kind of installation. Join with a qualified team give you a guarantee of good results.


If you get a pre – emptive and regular maintenance, you could extend the good life of your installation.

If you follow these 7 steps you´ll have a clear idea of your needs!


surveillance cameras

The increase of CCTV installation  is growing last years ago. It means that you´ll find changes and innovations everyday. With this article we want to help you to be clear some details about different cameras and recorders.

Now, there are some common CCTV technologies to all manufactures. There are 3 main categories:


It´s 1st generation cameras. They allow a very limit resolutions and features. The resolutions is by lanes. Cameras are conected to recorders by coaxial wire, RG59 model. This wire gives a good quality of signal until 150 meters and each camera needs a wire to be conneted to recorder. If we have to do a pixel conversion, the quality is 0,4 Mpx.

After, it started a new way to transmit the signal by UTP CAT5 or CAT6 wire. Its a common wire to connect computers to networks. It allowd a signal froma 300 meters until 1000 meters.

Now, this technology is desapearing. The last advantage is the cheaper prices. The probme is a limit quality and it couldn´t be adappated to news technologies.

AHD CAMERAS (Analogic High Definition)

Although these cameras are analogue, they could get more quality than others, by a coaxial or UPC wire. The resolution gets 5 Mpx. It´s leading some basic digital cameras.

The main advantage is the very good relationship between quality and price. The problem is there are cameras with more resolutions and digital cameras with more features than these.

resolución cámaras de vigilancia

IP CAMERAS (Internet Protocol)

Now, IP cameras have a great future. A basic digital camera has a HD quality (High Definition) with a resolution of 11280 x 720 px, but you could find cameras with 5Mpx, too.

It´s easy to find a great range of products and different prices. There are IP cameras by 40€ and other by 5.000€ with unbelievable features like: read license plate, identificate vehicles, people…

There aren´t miracles, the cheapest cameras has a low quality and expensive cameras have best quality and features. Today, you coul get a paniramic IP cameras of 12Mpx, 20Mpx until 40Mpx, with a resolution of 2592 x 1944 px.


Quality Width x Height Total pixels
Analogues. CIF 352X240 84,480
2CIF 704X240 168,960
4CIF 704X480 337,920
D1 720X480 345,600
Digitals. VGA 640X480 307,200
720P HDTV 1280X720 921,600
1,3 MP 1280X1024 1,310,720
2 MP 1600X1200 1,920,000
1080P HDTV 1920X1080 2,073,600
3,1 MP 2048X1536 3,145,728
5 MP 2592X1944 5,038,848


The options of recorder are wide and varied. You could find analogue recorders that are desapearing, hybrid recoders that mix analogue and digital cameras, and digital recorders well-known as DVR (Digital Video Recorder) or NVR (Network Video Recorder).

The most important thing, before to choose our camera is to have a good evalutation of our installation. It´s common to find cameras with a higher quality that recorder allows.  You don´t need a camera with 5Mpx of quality if the recorder safe images with a reduce quality.


Last device of a CCTV installation is the screens where you´ll watch the images. Recorders offers different ways to be connected to cameras. It´s not the same if you watch them by Internet, where we need a great conection to watch them by smartphone or if you watch them in situ connecting the monitor to recorder.

A great combination of high quality camera, recorder and monitor is VERY IMPORTANT to get sucessfull with your CCTV system. If you have ahight quality camera but a monitor with low resolutions, you could get the best of your cameras and recorder.
