Privacy Concerns: Video Doorbells in Condos

Publication date:
March 4, 2024
Article Summary: 

The integration of video doorbells in condos has become a hot topic due to their benefits in enhancing security and convenience. However, concerns about privacy have been raised, particularly regarding the observation and recording of activities in common areas. The Ontario Court of Appeal has recognized residents' reasonable expectation of privacy on common elements, but this expectation varies depending on factors such as building size and accessibility. Different types of condo communities may have different approaches to video doorbell usage. Condo corporations are encouraged to establish clear rules regarding the use of video doorbells to balance security concerns with residents' privacy expectations.
