Laws For Hidden Cameras/Audio Recorders in CT


                As technology has advanced throughout the years so has people’s ability to find more creative and secretive ways to have affairs. It may seem easy to install a hidden camera, search through a phone to find a text message or get a hold of an email to prove the affair. However, there is no legal way other than a subpoena to access the last two and hidden cameras are little more complex when it comes to the legality of them.

                The laws are very restricting when it comes to using hidden cameras/audio recorders in your marital or shared residence and/or vehicle.  A resident of a home has the right and expectation of privacy therefore a hidden camera without their knowledge would be deemed illegal. Just because you are the co-owner of the residence does not mean you can install cameras/audio recorders without your spouse's, partners or roommates’ consent or knowledge. The same would apply to a vehicle, even if it is solely in your name. If the vehicle is a marital asset it is not legal and the same would go for a vehicle you have given another person access to.
