    We had the intercom located in the vestibule and our vestibule was locked between 7 pm and 8 am daily, as we are close to the C-Train and experience issues with unwanted guests. Even with the vestibules locked, we have ingress due to tailgating residents.

    Things to consider with intercoms and their location would include will they be vandalized? Will they be used for crank calls or for people posing as delivery services to gain access? Are they rated for our weather?

    Re FOBs: Our building has almost 300 units. Regular audits of FOBs are required to ensure expected use and/or access and then deactivate any missing (lost or stolen) FOBs.
