In Reply to: Video Camera in Hallway...Help!! posted by Renter on March 22, 2001 at 13:14:55:

If someone breaks in, they'll have a nice clean picture to give to the cops. It would seem the concrete increase in security would be worth some perceived decrease in privacy (although not an actual decrease since the the camera is in a public place, the corridor).

I've never heard of any law limiting where a LL can put a camera in the public areas of a building. This is quite common now.

: My landlord hired a security company to install cameras in the lobby/first floor of the building where I live on the first floor. One of the cameras is situated directly aimed at my door, and it is taping 24 hours a day.

: Is the landlord allowed to capture on tape every move I or potential guests make? This camera is recording when I leave, when I come home, who visits me, and when they arrive and leave. There are 32 other floors in the building, and this is the only floor where tenants' doors (and therefore tenant and visitor activity) is being taped. Do I have grounds to complain about invasion of privacy?

: Someone please help...thank you!!!
