These days even common household appliances such as locks, refrigerators and washer/dryers connect to the Internet and collect data. Since this can raise privacy concerns, building owners may need to let residents and tenants know what sort of data these devices collect, and where it goes. Security is an issue as well.
“You want to disclose to your tenants exactly what vulnerabilities you're aware of and to keep up-to-date on vulnerabilities,” Warlick told the national legal publication.
