Extortion and Hidden Camera

Would it be possible for the victim of extortion to ask police to install a hidden camera (audio and video) in the victim's living room? The idea being to catch the suspect on tape demanding the money. The location is in Illinois, where you can have hidden video but not audio recordings as long as it is not in a expected privacy location. Would you need a warrant if you have the homeowner's permission? Thanks!
