Biometric Permit - Canton Change


I'm hoping someone on this forum might be knowledgeable/kind enough to help us with the following question...

We are British citizens who have been living in Zurich since 2018. We recently moved to another canton and they have sent us a letter requesting that we all turn up to be photographed and finger-printed.

I had understood that we had acquired rights because we lived in Switzerland before Brexit. I assumed the premise was that we should not be treated any differently than we would have been treated before Brexit and/or that we should be treated no differently than EU citizens (who do not have biometric data stored on their permits).

I still don't know what type of permit they intend to issue or the proposed expiry, so I'm worried about that too.

If anyone is able to clarify the above questions, that would be much appreciated!
