does Koodo landlind work for a building entry system, like in condominiums? So, If someone buzzes up from the lobby, will the resident of the building be able to answer the phone from the entry system and press 9 to enter?

Koodo does not offer landline service, so I presume you are discussing  Wireless Home Phone. It seems folks have had varying success. One barrier seems to be if you have a different area code than the building system. It would, of course also depend on the system.

Have you a cellphone number which you could test with?

I am a property Manager, and I received this call from a new tenant, in a new building with this question. I don't think they have signed up with Koodo yet, but are looking to. We are in the process of entering numbers into our Mircom TX3 series entry system.
The area code would not be an issue, as we are int he 705 area code, which is quite large, and numbers would be local. If i advise the tenant to simply have the entry system call her cell phone, there will not be any issues?
thanks,

Can't say if there would be any issues; the suggestion to test with a cellphone would be an exploration to see if it would work. Hopefully you can adjust numbers again in the future, if needed. Since Koodo Wireless Home Phone operates as a cellular device, it should work if a cellular phone works.

It should work.  I only have a mobile phone (no landline) and why my apt. gets buzzed, my phone rings and I can let them in no problem.

If your building uses that system, then any phone number with the right area code will work. My building has an older system where the lines are hardwired to each apartment (which would not work).
