Landlord Met Conditions for Replacing Traditional Key-Lock with Electronic Key Fob System
LVT Number: #30397
Landlord asked the DHCR for permission to replace the main entrance door's metal keys with an electronic key fob system. The DRA ruled for landlord and listed 13 conditions that landlord must comply with concerning the service modification. Tenants appealed and lost. They objected to the requirement that persons receiving a key fob sit for a photo to be electronically associated with the key fob in the security system database. But this requirement was consistent with DHCR policy and was an appropriate security measure.
