Are Nanny Cams Legal?

Let us get the disclaimers out of the way first.  We are not attorneys.This article should be used only as a guide to help you ask the right questions when seeking professional legal advice and should never be used in place of such advice.

Are nanny cams legal? Every state allows for some video-only recording of anything happening inside your home (even the hidden kind). Hidden cameras that only capture video are typically legal. However, there are a few legal restrictions on nanny camera surveillance that you may not know about. Local laws, audio recordings, and the reason for the video recording are factors to consider.

What is the Reason for Hidden Recordings?

No, hidden cameras cannot be used for the purpose of voyeurism – secretly recording people disrobed without their consent – or to capture other privacy invasive activities. It is illegal to use nanny cams in this way. However, if your purpose for nanny cams is for surveillance, protection from abuse, and the like, then a nanny cam is probably legal in your home.

Audio Recording: Often not allowed

Nanny cam recordings with audio and video require additional research. Many states have wiretapping laws, and it’s illegal to record audio in a surreptitious way, i.e. a secret recording device. Recording audio in many states require consent of the party being recorded or else the audio recording is illegal.

Many nanny cams do not record audio for the sake of being cautious, however some do record audio. Our line of nanny cams make you aware of cameras with audio recording features so you are not surprised to find you purchased a device that your state doesn’t allow (you know to disable the audio function before using it).

If you live in any of the following states, take special care not to use a nanny cam with audio: California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Washington.

Is Evidence From Nanny Cams Admissible in Court?

Courts are not guaranteed to allow footage from a nanny cam to be used as evidence in a case, however many are admitting secret nanny cam recordings. The biggest hangup is the issue of secrecy: If someone is videotaped without his or her knowledge, potential legal concerns arise that might prevent the videos from being admitted.

Examples of other issues that can render the video inadmissible:

  • You live in a state that requires consent.
  • Your nanny-cam video has audio in a state with strict wiretapping laws.
  • Events on video are not clear enough.

If you want to make the best of your home surveillance system you must know your state’s laws on nanny cameras or speak to an experienced attorney in your area. If you ever need your footage as evidence, you’ll want to make sure it was captured in a legal manner.

If you are unsure about the legal restrictions in the area you plan to use a nanny cam, seek professional legal advice.

About Nanny Cams

Nanny cam is a surveillance video camera hidden in a common household item. Nanny cams take the form of different objects designed to blend in with their surroundings, poised them as effective covert surveillance devices. Nanny cams are commonly placed in homes to protect against abuse from nannies or caregivers, they also discreetly monitor any in-home service providers, technicians or employees.

We focus on nanny cameras that feature ease of use and convenience. We do not throw every possible nanny camera we can find at you.  Rather, our criteria is designed to mate ease of use with power and features. If you are ready to get started, have a look at our nanny cameras and hidden cameras.

Point-Shoot-and-Leave
Also known as self-contained nanny cams. The absolute easiest to setup and use nanny cams have built-in digital video recorder, DVRs. These only require the most basic of setup but also are feature rich, to make reviewing recordings easy. Powering the camera is accomplished through a rechargeable battery or with a power adapter. The video is recorded onto an SD card or, at times, on built-in memory.

Centralized Surveillance
Unlike self-contained nanny cams, centralized surveillance systems connect one or more cameras to a single DVR to record videos.  Setup is surprisingly easy with our systems because we use wireless nanny cams. There is no need to run wires or go through special efforts to disguise surveillance technology with a wireless surveillance system.

Recording Options
Settings that change when video is recorded are useful tools in surveillance.  For example, record only when motion is detected will require less memory and reduce the amount of time it takes to review. Some cameras allow you to schedule times for recording, or just to constantly record.  Settings like these are useful in situations where you need to capture everything. Optional night vision cameras see in complete darkness and are ready to record whenever.

Time and Data Overlay
The time is stamped right on the bottom of the video in many of our nanny cams. Imagine if someone discovered your camera and tried to sabotage the video in order to record over some incriminating event. How would you know there was missing video without a time and data stamp? Not only can you see the time of the recording, you can see the actual frame number – which should count up by one every time as long as no tampering occurred – adding more security to your cams.

Video Review
We have a special page that shows all the ways our nanny cams allow you to review video.  Some of our cameras are designed to be connected to TVs, monitors, and computers.  Others do not connect at all.  Instead, they have removable SD cards that you insert into a computer. Still others make online viewing of surveillance videos simple – often not even requiring any special internet settings for your home network or router!
