Clairvoyance both ancient and modern.
Found in an old magic tome, with vellum leaves and faded brown ink.
Obtain seven drops of blood from the person you wish to scry, unbeknownst to them.
Drip them evenly onto a scarlet red ribbon that has been boiled in sea water drawn under a full moon.
Wrap the ribbon around a white beeswax candle, pinning it with seven golden pins washed in holy water.
Suspend a green glass roundel over the candle.
When you light the candle and watch the flame through the roundel, the person whose blood it is will appear, and you will see but not hear their actions for the duration of the burning. The candle may be lit only once.
Scribbled in biro in the margins
Doesn't matter what denomination priest blesses the holy water- even the ULC will do.
Thumb tacks will do for the pins.
If you can't get their blood, videotape with their image on it is fine, so long as they didn't see you filming it.
If you use videotape, use an old TV screen instead of the green glass roundel. Flat screens don't work.
Would a stolen security tape work?

I tried it, but I think the person saw me.
Ooh, maybe part of what the ritual normally does is taps into input methods already there, kind of cheating. For example, you want to watch someone? It taps into the sight centers of people around them, also, makes the people around them more interested in the subject. Security cameras focus in on'em, don't swing back and forth like they oughta, etc. Only when no one is around does it rely on "brute" clairvoyance?
"Secondly, although it might be paranoia everybody seems to watch me suspiciously and the security guard where I work keeps following me."
Who watches the watcher, it is asked.
