Neighbours security cameras?

Is there any way I can jam or disable my neighbours security cameras from filming my property. I feel like I live in a prison as my every movement is on their cameras.

1 ways that are leagle

Get a strong IR illumination and point them at the camera this will disable them at night,

not a lot you can do for the daytime.

But im sure there not using to look or spy on you it will be for security.

A common misconception about CCTV cameras is that there being watched. There not they record the video and overwrite it every 5-30 days. Cameras are only looked at (usually) when there is an event such as break and enter. Also they more then likely have a wide angle lens which means there not getting any detail more then 10 feet away. No sits and watches the cameras they are only used when there is an event. So relax I doubt the cameras have nothing to do with you.

The only way its illegal is if they can see inside your windows.

I would not worry about it, if it really bugs you talk to your nigher or build a bigger fence.

With camera and survelience systems, you get what you pay for. Generally, the more you pay, the better features you get, and the more reliability. I would expect to pay at least $3k for a basic system. Here are some pointers:

1. Unless you just want the cameras for show, don't go with an off the shelf system like you can get at Costco or Sam's Club.

2. Don't do business with any company that hasn't been selling/installing cameras for at least four years. Ask for references.

3. Don't buy a Windows based camera system. Get one that is optimized for Camera usage. Many camera systems these days are based on custom implementations of Linux - a far better solution than Windows.

4. Don't cheap out on camera's. Good cameras + good recorder = better results. A camera system won't do you any good if you can't identify the people/cars/etc that your trying to record.

5. Buy a system that can handle at least 4 camera's more than you need right now. It is easier and less expensive in the long run to grow a system by just adding camera's than it is to replace the recorder.

6. Don't pay for your system and installation all at once. Have your purchase and installation contract broken down into stages - something like 25% deposit with order, 25% on delivery, 25% on installation and 25% due within 30 days of commissioning. Otherwise you could run into a situation where the camera company closes it's doors, or runs off with your money. I've seen this happen more than once.

I spent four years with a company that sold camera's and recording equipment as a side line. We were rather expensive compared to some of our competitors, because our main focus was another product line. However, on more than one occasion, people who went with the lowest bid often ended up coming to us for help upgrading or replacing their systems because of their good experiences with our other equipment. I saw more than one customer have the camera guy do a partial installation, then take off with the rest of the money, leaving the customer with no camera system. I also saw several customers get disgusted with their Windows based systems and either replace them entirely, or just stop using them at all.

Addressing your clarification: in my mind, $250 for installing the cameras is not only reasonable, it's extremely cheap. Most installers I'm aware of charge an average of between $50 and $125 an hour (depending upon your area). Depending upon the layout of the cameras and construction details of your building, I would figure an hour or two per camera, plus an hour or two to set up the recorder. My old company would have charged a minimum of $500 for the install, our typical install fee was $1500. Remember that iinstalling the cameras is more than just running the wires and mounting the cameras. It is also making sure they're pointed in the right directions, focused well, etc. Good luck.
