security cameras damaged by lasers
Lasers do damage to security cameras-
my neighbor has been lasering ours for a month and i notice the burning effect on the film
can take him to court for damages?Answer:
I am not sure how you get a burning effect on the film? I thought all security cameras even the old analog ones went to a DVR that has a hard drive. Unless of course that is what you meant.
I am sorry this guy is doing this to you. That is definitely not a cool thing.
I had to do a little research on this one. I have not had that many situations where someone was having their cameras disabled.
I found a site that was kind of funny. It was all about the destruction of the security cameras.
Here is what they listed as their top ways of destroying security cameras.
- Plastic bag filled with glue. (or if you can reach it to put the bag on the camera then just bust it)
- Sticker and tape placed over lens.
- Paint gun us water pistol toy filled with household paint.
- Laser pointer.
- Cable cutting.
- Block (or other heavy object) dropped from above the camera.
To get to the answer to your question. You can take anyone to court that you feel has wronged you in some way. The challenge for you will be catching them in the act. You will need more security cameras or you will need to take a regular camcorder and try to catch them in the act.
If you catch them in the act with verifiable proof you can then easily get the local authorities involved and file a civil law suite against them.
Wish I had more to help you with on this one. This guy needs a little attitude adjustment.
