Hidden Surveillance Camera

A lot of families install hidden surveillance cameras for security reasons. This helps the community and neighborhood. Most of the time, these cameras are placed from the outside, pointing toward the doors/windows/yards of the property. However I have been suspecting for about a year or two that one of the neighbors' hidden cameras seem to be pointing toward the outside of their front yard, picking up street traffic and portions of others' front yards as well.
California law seems to allow private cameras monitor other private properties where visible from public areas, while it is illegal to record others' voices without consent.
This gets quite annoying when you know there are always pairs of eyes watching the neighbors on the street. I wonder how people deal with this kind of situation.
