New York State Laws Governing Security Cameras and Video Surveillance

New York is known for its iconic city and world-famous monuments. Unfortunately, the Big Apple also has security challenges that New Yorkers must consider. Are you considering installing cameras in New York? Well, then you should take a moment to review the security camera laws in New York.

Residents in New York State have the right to utilize video surveillance on their property, at work, and in public places. However, they must take into account the privacy of others when doing so. This means ensuring that no unauthorized persons or institutions can access or otherwise view any captured video footage. In addition, it is important to note that certain states recognize different types of security devices as having open installation terms for citizens such as CCTV systems with visible signage when required.

Therefore, it is always recommended to check all local and state-level regulations prior to utilizing any kind of camera surveillance device within an area or building perimeter. Doing so can help you ensure compliance with the law while staying safe from potential liability issues down the line.

Lets be clear, when used to monitor for security, safety and other non-spying uses, video surveillance systems are allowed in New York State. In addition, a video surveillance system is permissible if its installation is hidden or visible. Still, it is good practice to display a notice declaring that the system owner is conducting surveillance. It is illegal in New York to use any device to record, obtain, share, or use communications, whether wired, oral, or electronic, without the approval of at least one person involved in the conversation. This means that if you are a contributor or have previous authorization from one of the persons involved, you are legally entitled to record a conversation in New York.
