Outdoor security camera system for a residence. Any potential legal issues to consider?

I recently acquired a security DVR system (with cameras) from a restaurant. I would like to setup a few cameras outside my house. All footage would be of my own property (mainly entranced and side access to my backyard). All cameras would be pointed towards my house (to prevent any confusion). Cameras also would not be visible from the street.
I was wondering if there are any legal issues to worry about. Also, I live 1/2 a block away from an elementary school.
The only home security systems I've seen/heard of are the intrusion/alarm type.
