    Is nanny cameras legal?

    Hey,

    I just wanted to ask if nanny cameras are legal? Can I hide camera at my home to see what is she doing? Can she sue me for that?

    Thank you.

    Can she sue you to keep from going to prison cause you caught her doing some real nasty stuff-> NO she can't.

    It's your house and she has no/shouldn't have any expectation of privacy. (except maybe the bathroom)

    Nanny cams are certainly legal. Be sure to use lengthy, complex passwords to keep hackers out. Cams and other IoT devices with default login credentials are listed in Shodan for easy exploit.

    It depends on the jurisdiction, but nanny cameras are generally lawful. However, keep in mind that in some locations, you may need your nanny's permission to record them. They may be able to sue if they believe their privacy has been violated.
