Fact or Fiction: You Must Post a Sign Announcing Video Surveillance at a Property

You must post a sign announcing video surveillance on private property.

Fiction. You do not need to post signage stating that a property has video surveillance devices capable of recording. Video recording is generally allowed anywhere on private property except where there is a reasonable expectation of privacy, like a bathroom.

Audio recording is different. The Federal Electronic Communications Privacy Act and the Texas Penal Code prohibit audio recordings without the consent of at least one person involved in the conversation.
