I am no lawyer but I think you can and should report your landlord to your local housing authority. Landlord rights differ from state to state but here is an excerpt of our local Landlord's right:
When Can the landlord enter the property?
The landlord may enter a rental dwelling to inspect the premises,
make repairs, supply services or exhibit the property to workers,
prospective tenants or purchasers. In such instances, the landlord
should give the tenant at least one day's notice that he or she intends
to enter, and should enter only at reasonable times. The landlord
may enter without the tenant's consent only if there is an emergency,
or if the tenant has abandoned the premises
If for example you plan on going forward with any litigation- concerning your ' video ' You may have to post that video surveillance is being used on the premises since this is rented property - or the landlord may have a ' counter suit '
Just something to think about. I agree you should have the right to protect yourself but you should do so under the law that governs your state.
