In a recent case involving a tenant who had affixed two mock cameras to the front of his property without obtaining the landlord´s prior consent, the Supreme Court analysed the tenant´s rights in this context. It ruled that, based on the direction and position of the cameras, an impartial observer would not have the impression of being monitored. Hence, the action was dismissed.
