An Illinois man is suing the maker of a video baby monitor after discovering that he and his neighbor could spy on each other through the devices.

Wes Denkov filed a proposed class action lawsuit on Friday against Summer Infant and Toys ‘R’ Us over the $100 Summer Infant Day and Night Video Monitor.
