It is the responsibly of the purchaser to check all State, Local and Federal Laws governing the use of hidden video cameras before ordering hidden or covert video surveillance equipment. Hidden video surveillance is legal-in most states- as long as it is not done in an area where reasonable privacy is expected. Such areas include but are not limited to bathrooms, bedrooms and dressing rooms. Crimes or action that is video taped is usually admissible as evidence in court. In most states video surveillance does not require the consent of parties involved.
