: Can homeowners install cameras on their balconies that point toward the front entrance of the building?
: It is not against the law for a homeowner to point a camera toward the front entrance of the building. People entering and exiting the building have no expectation of privacy since they can be seen by anyone standing on their balconies as well as people on the street. However, the association can prohibit the attachment of CCTV cameras to common area railings, balconies, ceilings and walls. Boards can also adopt rules that require cameras to blend into the structure and be unobtrusive. The rules can also prohibit the pointing of cameras toward other owner’s windows and balconies.
