Yes it is very illegal to have a video camera pointed at your neighbors house. Omg are you some kind of stupid? Do you know what invasion of privacy is? Just because you live next to someone does not mean you are allowed to know their every move. Even on your own property you need to have a sign up saying you are under 24 hour surveillance before it could be used in court. You also can not record phone conversations unless one person in the conversation knows they are being recorded. Most people don't know it but stores can only have video recording not audio and if you pay attention all of their camera can be will seen.

No you can't point it in someone's house. Once again that is a huge invasion of privacy.

I can tell you how to damage it use a laser pointer. Or this want damage it but make it to where they can't see your door, get a floor light and point it back at the camera. Or you can plant trees in between your door and the camera. I like the laser idea.

there is no presumption of privacy out in public,except for audio recordings, DUH is totally wrong on this subject. it is indeed NOT "a huge invasion of privacy." DUH needs to do research before commenting.

I did do research and everything I found said it was illegal to have it pointed into a house. So are you ok to have your neighbor filming you having sex, taking a bath, changing clothes, or doing any other daily actives. Or are you the one filming your neighbor?

B.S, nobody said pointed in the window, you said that just to argue your point, at a house and into a window of a house is completely different. think you were slick with the switch, but you can't fool me.

It is on the corner of the house about 60ft or less from my front door pointing right in my front door! The front door has to be closed before i go into the bathroom because its a straight shot! I just noticed all this. They may not be videoing me but they cant say its for their property because its not pointed on their property. Should i report this? And to whom?

Report it to the Sheriff's Office for their feedback. Under no circumstances should you attempt to destroy the camera as suggested. Attempting to "snipe" a camera can draw charges of assault, attempted murder or worse.

Putting up a tree would not be assault or any of those things.

No one would want that unless they were crazy,but they do make drapes, shades anyone taking a bath or having sex without drawing those ,are wanting to be seen,or very careless,but,my question,why would you want your cameras pointed at a neighbor?If you think they are stealing from you,it is legal.If you are doing it to be nosy it is harassment,it is that simple.
