I know this question might sound a little silly and this is probably not the best site to ask, but I would really appreciate any answer. My neighbours installed this device just opposite to windows of my appartment:

white device

It is white and I can see a tiny blue light on it in the night.

I hope it must be some kind of antenna, but I googled a lot a did not find anything. It also may be a camera, which makes me feel quite uncomfortable and that is why I ask this question... You know: Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get me :-).

I don't know where you live, but in Europe there are a number of free wireless networks. My neighbor operates a node that is part of such a network and the antennas look a little bit unusual.

These networks are usually well documented and often you can find maps and information online.

Google also has a number of pictures of typical antennas that vary in size and number:
