The author discusses the issue of finding a balance between monitoring that works both in public and private space as an element of ensuring the security of citizens, and violating their right to privacy guaranteed in the constitution. It is a matter of dispute enough that disputes persist in many environments, to the extent that the use of monitoring complies with legal and ethical standards and serves to ensure the security of citizens. The boundary between security protection and the right to privacy is also important. The author points out that there is still no law on video monitoring, despite work on its content for over 5 years. It shows how widely used monitoring is and how it affects the right to privacy. The main thesis was assumption that access to modern technologies and information techniques significantly changed the perception of human rights and the use of monitoring in the context of, in particular, the right to privacy – significantly limiting them. The author notices that privacy as a good of special significance for a man but also in a specific scope of a legal person takes the form of constitutional value resulting from several provisions of the binding constitution, including the most important article 47 and others, ie article 48–51, 53.
