Neighbors must talk it out over cameras' placements

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Mar 20, 2014

~~<p><strong>Question:</strong> I live in Manoa. Some of my neighbors and my family have formed an informal neighborhood watch group. One of our neighbors who is not part of our group installed security cameras on their property. One camera not only points directly at my property, it is angled so that it looks right into my back door. At night with lights on, our in-house movements are visible and recorded by this neighbor. Our departures and arrivals home are recorded. Another camera was positioned on their roof with a view of the other neighbors, but has since been removed. The camera(s) are of deep concern as the reason we formed the neighborhood watch was due to burglaries in our neighborhood. The police warned us that our living patterns are observed by burglars. Is there anything that we can do about this neighbor's intrusion into our privacy?</p>
<p><strong>Question:</strong> We have a neighbor who installed cameras on the side of their house. Originally they had a camera situated to view the side of their house. Recently, they adjusted the camera to view my yard and patio area. We feel that this is an invasion of our privacy and it seems to be illegal to use the cameras to view what is happening on my property. Are we assuming correctly and who should we contact to rectify the situation?</p>
