Ding Dong! Your Doorbell Camera Must Come Down

Article Summary: 

The Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta ruled in Lupuliak v Condominium Plan No 8211689 that a doorbell camera can be considered an unreasonable intrusion of privacy and could constitute a nuisance. Ms. Lupuliak had installed a Ring security camera on her unit's front door that opened into a common hallway without seeking the condo board's permission. Despite her resistance, the board requested her to remove the camera, and the matter went to court. The judge ordered her to remove the camera, finding that she violated the bylaws and that the camera constituted an alteration of common property. This decision is in line with earlier decisions from British Columbia’s Civil Resolution Tribunal. Condo owners who wish to install security cameras should check their corporation's bylaws and request permission from the board in advance.
