    Not sure about King County, but we were told by our local sheriffs deputy that using any type of "ocular" device, such as a camera, binoculars etc. to "observe" someone else on their own property was not legal. We had a creep that would stand at the property line and look in our windows, but because he was on his property and not using any type of "ocular device" there was nothing the sheriff could do.
