Video doorbells are a popular security feature, but a Bridgeport woman says her apartment complex has banned them outright.
Alesia Dennis says her building has a strict policy against the devices -- but her packages are subject to stealing, she says, upsetting her.
"The reason why I want my own video doorbell camera is for security for me, and for security for the people in this hallway, because our packages are always getting stolen," she said. "And it's upsetting because they refuse to let me have this and it's not fair."
According to Dennis, the property manager told her the building has its own video system, and consumer devices only damage the property. However, she says whenever thefts occur, she can't get access to that video.
Calls to the landlord were not returned.
Dennis says it's a great complex otherwise and she'd like to stay there.
