He has no windows so, he is using security cameras for that side of his house. The fact your windows are there is not his issue, he is protecting his house.
You sound quite paranoid.

If the neighbor is using it as security it should not be pointed towards the OPs house but rather along the alleyway either towards the front or back of the house.

All I can read is the OP's post and as I said, he seems paranoid and seems to have a problem with his neighbor (as seen by his other posts ). The camera may very well be pointing along the house and property but the OP believes it is pointing (or partially pointing) to his window.

What did you do to your neighbour? Base on your 2 threads, you are being picked on. Your neighbour is ticking you off with his actions, are you being paranoid?

Seriously? I highly doubt the camera was installed just to look at his window. Most likely it is pointed at the alley way.

Even if it was pointed at his window, it won’t capture much. It’s hard enough to look through someone’s window and see anything

Put a reflective film on your windows so that they can't see in and possibly blind the camera with light.

Based on the 2 threads I see no evidence of OP being picked on. I see a possible personality disorder of some kind (OP's).

Maybe it's the other way around? Neighbour is afraid of OP so they install a cam to protect their property.

Is OP for real? Man...
OP seems to be a complete troll and I pity the poor neighbors. Imagine having pesky neighbors as OP.

from the OP's other post makes no sense. Do you wanna shoot a bird violating your air space?

I have camera's around my home too and my neighbors actually thanked me having them as it covers their drive way too and keeps them secure if needed.

Only solution is to challenge your neighbour to bare knuckle boxing in the camera range

Then post footage in this thread please

Keep the shades low in the 3 windows.... wear a hoodie and sunglasses whenever leaving via the walkway. That way he cant distinguish you from regular thugs and rappers in the hood. #ThugLife

Neighbours side doesn't have any windows or anything as it is the fire safety wall or something they call. Its just vinyl siding. So they put a camera via VIVINT there. My side which is 4 feet. Has 3 windows and we have our walkway to our backyard from there. I went ahead and asked him. That his camera is pointing at my window. He said its not working yet. So I left and now he is never coming out of hus house so that I can talk. What can I do here. I called cps no proper naswer from them. Call city nothing imp. Call privacy commisoner nothing fruitful. Is there anyway I can live peacefully in my house. Looking for suggestions
I’d look at installing a mirrored window tint. For $59 it’s pretty cheap fix and is readily available at Home Depot. The neighbour’s cam will get a useless picture of itself looking out onto the space between their houses and it shouldn’t be able to pick up anything from inside the house.

Won’t help with being on cam walking between the houses, but at least you won’t feel like the camera is peering into your house. The key is to defeat the neighbour’s sense that they have an advantage over you without spending too much time or money on it. The window film solution would be a good defeat device for this!
