Ring Cameras (by Mary [OH]) Posted on: Sep 30, 2022 10:29 PM

Hello

I have a 4 suiter that I installed ring flood cameras on every side including the front where the porches are. We have had some drug activity. We have had one tenant say the camera because it has sound is a personal violation. None of the flood lights with cameras are in private areas. I am going to consult an attorney just wanted other peoples opinions.

Thanks in advance

I'd say that according to US & Ohio law your tenant's understanding of what is allowed is more accurate than yours. If you don't already have them, make sure you put up signs stating that these areas are being monitored by surveillance cameras.

Hidden Security Cameras in Ohio

Like many states, Ohio has no laws that directly address where hidden cameras can be placed. Video recording in private places is permitted if the person being filmed consents to the surveillance. But consent need not be affirmative. All that is required in Ohio to give consent is to willingly enter a location where signs are posted stating that surveillance is taking place. However, unauthorized video surveillance for malicious or unlawful purposes is prohibited.

Excellent answer Steve. The signs will also help deter criminal activity. --107.141.xx.xxx

I am around cameras at both jobs and pretty much wherever you go now. Put up the " you are on camera" signs and call it a day. Cameras are on every street corner and pole now, they should have the OMG attitude. Start locking around and see how many stores warn about you being recorded. --73.230.xxx.xx

I can't record conversations without permission as PA is a 2 consent state. I can if I post or verbally record that you are being recorded just like the cc companies do though. --73.230.xxx.xx
