I am renting a room in a shared house. On a couple occasions I caught the landlord entering my room without giving any notice. He had feasible excuses, like repairing the dresser in my room, but he should have given warning.

Is it legal for me to get an IP camera that records the video and audio and alerts me when there's motion? Do I need to warn my landlord about this or leave a sign?

The month before I move out the landlord will show my room to potential tenants. Can I still record when they are in the room?

    Where are you? This matters – Dale M May 25 '18 at 10:37
  • Jurisdiction and lease details and type could all be relevant. In general, a tenant has the right to quiet enjoyment - so provided that this room is for your use only, and you are not recording activities outside of this, and are not (for example), using it to covertly record guests you are probably OK. – davidgo May 26 '18 at 7:02
