Default My neighbor has been watching me with video cameras

My neighbor has been watching me with video camera and you can see monitors in his windows that seem to be images of inside my house like the kitchen and bedroom. Not sure why he has me under surveillance. What rights do I have?

"What rights do I have?"

You have a right to privacy. Your neighbor has the right to record anything in the public view, such the outside of your house or on the porch. Inside is a different story and your neighbor may be liable in both the civil and criminal sense. I hope someone else can help you with your situation.

I presume this is in the United States?

The police will go to him and halt that.

I did it myself when a neighbor put up a cam supposedly to watch our kids and make sure they did not damage his fence. But it was pointed into our house.

Anything that seems out of the reasonable and ordinary, the police will intervene, at least here in Ohio..

I am considering doing the same, putting up cameras to watch neighbor's house...their activity is highly suggestive of drug dealing and theft...I am waiting for advice on the matter. Personally, I don't care what a neighbor does, as long as it doesn't impact me. Is there a behavior on your part that is infringing upon your neighbor's rights? Are your children uncontrolled and perhaps violating his peace and security?

Might say luck of the drawl yet not luck there is 5 types of stalkers and in more cases then ud imagen they stalk for years I read some stories lasted 7yrs and my nabor has been stalking me for almost 2 yrs now the cops hands r pretty much tied I'm most cases involving a nabor doing it. Their in the comfort of their home makes it more difficult for the cops to get involved after two yrs I've decided fight fire with fire I intend to buy my own spy toies they've got over a thousand on the interent even a neat little laser pointer that will allow u to sit in ur own home and hear all ur friendly nabors private conversations just imagen by watching and listening to them as they stalk u all of the proof u can get. Thenif u still can't get the cops to do anything try going door to door and informing every nabor that u can and ur proof uve put together what it is that's going on u never know what their stalking could turn into its better to take matters in ur own hands while following the law and stop it before someone gets hurt or worse
