As a teacher, my credo has always been just to presume that you're being recorded. That's how you should conduct yourself.

But stay out of my head on weekends. That's ecmoRandomNumbers time.

If you are babysitting you should be keeping your own videos of every second.
Perfect gift for all of your babysitters.

Who cares about the linked article?  I'm taking a gander at Brooke Burke.  Damn, she fine still.

Putting up camera's in your own home is fine. What I take issue with is the parents checking to make sure the kids are in bad exactly at bed time. Your gone to have a night out, let the babysitter use some discretion and relax.

I saw the video on Pornhub...

Why not cut out the middle and just let the cameras "watch" the kids.

Remind me to remove the cameras in my bathrooms....

/forget I said anything  ...

The nanny was working in a work environment, the employers have every right to record her. They aren't recording her in the bathroom, so there is no invasion of privacy.
 
2019-04-15 03:08:42 PM  
Oh no, there are some parents who care about the welfare of their children.
Off with their heads!

I've recently updated my airbnb's info to explicitly say there are no cameras on the premises. Lots of stories recently with cameras in homes.
Frankly, I don't want to see my guests.

It's the babysitter's job to let them play a little longer than normal.

But who says they were recording her? It is possible to have your cameras watching and even sending alerts without recording. And the law specifically says recording.

Funny the American commentors in TFA saying "The parents have every right to record her since they're her employer" completely ignoring that this happened in Australia where it's explicitly against the law for employers to record their employees without prior notification, and that this was stated in clear terms within the article itself.

I mean, I get that Farkers often DNRTFA, but on the primary-source website?  Really?

What if the babysitters put the vids on private servers?

When I think people are watching me, and they are, I usually just give them what I think they want to see.
It can be fun.
Sometimes I go to jail.

Help me, I thought the idea was to record your property. There are award winning cinematographers willing to help with the focus and framing.

I have my cameras set to randomly make haunted noises. If the babysitter finds them all before we get home she gets double pay. But we do request that she make a video for us before she leaves ... (no we don't). Stop lying! Stop typing ...

I feel creepy even thinking about having cameras in / out of our rental.  I live 10 minutes away from the place...I can always do a drive by if I wanna see the place.

Difficulty: If you read the full article (I know you didn't), you would find that no, they don't.  It's illegal to do so covertly, and if they have cameras, they are required by law to tell the babysitter.

I don't have any needful things, so I don't know.

If I had need of security cameras in my home, I'd sure as hell tell my guests, tenants, and unsupervised employees and certainly my under-aged babysitter about them.

It's the difference between wanting to prevent a crime, and wanting to "gotcha" a criminal.  In the case of an under-aged guest/baby sitter it's also the difference between possessing child porn or not, when they decide to rub one out on the living room sofa, as teens are wont to do.

This sentence:  Australian law across all states states that it is illegal to covertly record the actions of a nanny or other contracted person while they are conducting work on your property.

At least one of the Americans from the comments is a farker.  He made the same dumb post in TFA as he did here.

When it comes to correcting your initial assertion that the parents hadn't done anything wrong, it is quite useful.

"The telescreen recieved and transmitted simultaneously. Any sound Winston made, above the level of a very low whisper, would be picked up by it; moreover, so long as he remained within the field of vision which the metal plaque commanded, he could be seen as well as heard. There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever the wanted to. You had to live- did live, from habit that became instinct- in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, Andrea, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized."

But who says they were recording her? It is possible to have your cameras watching and even sending alerts without recording. And the law specifically says recording.


* It is an offence to install, use, or maintain an optical surveillance device (camera) to record a private activity, whether or not the person is a party to the private activity.

Let us all join hands and repeat after the article...ACCORDING TO AUSTRALIAN LAW.

Is this some kind of kangaroo court around here?

The fact that the parent's saw the image means the device that was installed, used and maintained to record the images and then transmit them to a device that humans were able to see and thus store those images in their brains creates this illegal activity in AUSTRAILIA...whether that image was stored on an electronic media device for later consumption and sexual gratification is irrelevant to your misunderstanding of what the act of recording an image is.

I'm thinking it's you who doesn't understand what recording an image is.

Can you look at the image at a later point in time or can you only see it while it is occurring?  If you can not see it at a later point in time then it is not a recording.  Otherwise every time you watch tv then you are recording it because the fact that an image exists and is being transmitted to you means you are recording it.
