  The reduced cost of home video surveillance systems has more people choosing to protect their homes with cameras.

     But increase in cameras, has led to a clash between homeowners rights and privacy laws.

     One homeowner in chandler Arizona has nine surveillance cameras on his property, and one of them captures the goings on in the backyard of his neighbor

     The neighbor has to shut the door and close the blinds to preserve her privacy.

     She says she is concerned about her kids being recorded while playing in the pool and in the yard.

     former prosecutor and phoenix-based defense attorney Alex lane said having a camera in one's yard is only illegal if the    homeowner's sole intent is to harass a neighbor.

     Otherwise, the law, lane said, isn't clear.
