What rights do I have to refuse security cameras from being installed in our private home by my husband of 35 years? I will feel so uncomfortable and am very much against this.

​This is Samuel. Who is doing the installation? Are they outside or inside? Are they in a place where you would have an expectation of privacy? Also is your name on the Title/Deed to the home?

Thank you. Unfortunately, if your name is ***** ***** the Deed, the installation company does not need your permission to install. I suggest, however, that once the cameras are installed you can certainly "black" them out.

I am sorry that your rights are restricted even though it is legally your home, permission is not needed for the installation. But you can destroy them once they are installed because it is your home and you have a right to your privacy in your home, even from your spouse.
