A: You can consider taking legal action against your neighbors for intentionally readjusting their outdoor security cameras to face your property. This situation may involve issues of privacy and harassment, which are often protected under state and local laws. Document any evidence of the camera adjustments, such as photos or videos, and keep a record of any interactions you have had with your neighbors about this issue.

First, try discussing your concerns with your neighbors to see if the situation can be resolved amicably. Sometimes, a polite conversation can lead to a solution without the need for legal action. If this doesn't work, you might want to contact local authorities or a legal professional to understand your rights and the best course of action.

Depending on your jurisdiction, there may be specific laws about where cameras can be pointed and what they can record. Understanding these regulations can help you determine if your neighbors are violating any laws and if you have a strong case. Taking these steps can help protect your privacy and ensure your home feels safe and secure.
