State Laws and Local Codes state that the camera's must not invade the privacy of adjacent landowners. And that the camera's must cover only area's of the owners property which is being videotaped for surveillance reason's. They can not point a camera directly at your house 24/7. They can however use a camera to capture any illegal activity or damage that is being done to their property by adjacent landowners. I would suggest that you contact your local Code Enforcement Office and file a complaint. They may be able to enforce your City, County or State Codes. Let me know if you need further assistance.
