Landlord Can't Install Biometric Entry System in Rent-Stabilized Building
LVT Number: #30616
Landlord asked the DHCR for permission to modify building services by installing a biometric fingerprint entry security system. The DRA ruled against landlord, finding that the proposed system intrudes on the privacy of building tenants and that these privacy concerns outweighed any added security benefit that the proposed biometric fingerprint entry system may have.
