| | separate when home solo; I'd tether the newbie.
How long have U had her?
I would strongly urge separating them when U're not home; a remote camera when she decides to chew on him won't be much practical help, & U can't save him from injury when U're at work.
She seems quite dog-aggro, & the honeymoon period is brief - she'll reveal her true colors soon, & i don't think they'll be pretty.
Tethering her in the room where everyone is - so that she can't interfere with the old boy, but she's not solo in another room - is a simple Mgmt solution, & doesn't cost much.

Any big-box hardware store can make-up a bike-cable to a custom length; 15 to 18-inches of free cable, depending upon whether U use standard swivel spring-clips, or separate swivels with DOUBLE-ENDED spring-clips [which are longer], should be fine.
Either screw an eye-bolt into the baseboard & clip the cable to the eyebolt, or take a 2-ft hunk of 2x4 & screw the eyebolt into the 'wide' side midway-down.
the 2x4 version is portable; insert the wood anchor behind any door, run the cable beneath the door, CLOSE the door, & clip the free end to the dog's buckle collar / martingale / the chest of a Y-harness.
Any door can now become a station for the dog; take her room to room, floor to floor.
