In her dealings thus far with the LL, DD thinks he's "not very smart". They are still waiting for a decision from the LL couple. DD and BF have decided that if the LL plans to install cameras that can see the doors, garage, or back yard, they will pull out the lease and argue that since cameras are not specified in the lease, they are not allowed. If LL still insists on installing cameras, DD and BF will look for a new place.

Also heard more backstory. Apparently, the horses got out of the pasture the day after DD and BF took possession of the keys to the house. (They did not start moving in until a couple of days later.) But the horse people are blaming the new tenants for letting the horses out. Which they didn't. Now the horse gate is locked and only the horse people have keys, but maybe the horse people want to keep an eye on the tenants too!

Sounds like a $9 lock might be a lot more effective than hundreds of $ in security cameras...

Next thing you know the LL will be operating a drone with a camera at your window.

Cheers!

So the entire thing got blown out of proportion:
LL was told by horse tenants that horses got out and it must have been the new house tenants.
LL decided to possibly believe (maybe?) or at least err on the side of caution and then came up with silly plan to put cameras everywhere on the property (probably misunderstanding what his wife said to actually do as most of us men are wont to do).
House tenants tell Mom & Dad, who tell internet, who immediately jump to the worst possible conclusion and recommend lawsuits, public humiliation and possible 3rd Amendment violation action with the Supremes?
how am I doing so far?
If I were the house tenants, and the LL actually comes back and decides they want to be able to see horse areas only (gate and pastures) then I have no problem. If however they want to see any part that I am renting (house area and 1 acre as OP mentioned) then I am either leaving (after I explain specifically why in person and in writing) or they will change their plans. Legally I would think that you would be completely fine in doing so (not a lawyer but I play one on the internet!) and even if you are not then let them spend the money and sue me or respond to my suit etc.

It might be so small they won't even see it.

Speaking of which, I just received mine in the mail today. Really, this is a TV camera and transmitter that is used on a small "park flyer" airplane. The goggles are for FPV, or First Person View, that is becoming popular with model airplane and drone pilots.

And this is just hobby-grade stuff, for more serious money they get very small.

There, doesn't that put your mind at ease?
