That camera picks up part of the property of 4 neighbors. Just the edges of them. But I can see them doing yard work. And they don't know the camera is if recording them. As long as I don't record audio, its allowed. Its a felony to record audio without consent in PA.

We've been in this house for 8 years and never had a problem until last week. Someone broke into our sons Suburban and stole his thumpity jungle boom boom system. I wish we would have had cameras at least to have gotten a license number and maybe a description.
Several people have told us since that this Chevy is easier to break into than just using the key. Lol

The law does not cover oral communications when the speakers do not have an "expectation that such communication is not subject to interception under circumstances justifying such expectation." See 18 Pa. Cons. Stat. 5702 (link is to the entire code, choose Title 18, Part II, Article F, Chapter 57, Subchapter A, and then the specific provision). Therefore, you may be able to record in-person conversations occurring in a public place without consent. However, you should always get the consent of all parties before recording any conversation that common sense tells you is private.
Here is a good link...


And another...


The common point you will find in these.....the expectation of privacy.....

Most of the recording laws were directed towards hidden cameras in places that are considered private....i.e., the landlord who put cameras in the bedrooms of his rental units.

But....installing a camera to record both video and audio around the outside of your house? Perfectly legal. No one can claim an expectation of privacy standing outside your house.

Now....if your cameras can catch the audio in your neighbors house? Now you have a problem. But only if the audio would not be detectable by a normal person standing outside.


Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.
