Vancouver startup Easy Buzzer hopes to solve a problem that has become a headache for many apartment residents – the entry buzzer system.
Easy Buzzer allows residents (and roommates) to buzz in guests from their own phones rather than being restricted to a single landline or cell phone by their building. Residents now have the ability to add and remove their phones as answering devices for the front door intercom of their apartment with a simple web app.
Easy Buzzer forwards calls from your apartment’s buzzer to any of your phones. When a guest buzzes your residence, your phones will ring and the guest will be connected with the first person who answers.
Users can instantly update who controls your apartment buzzer at any time from your account on the Easy Buzzer website (iPhone and Android application will be released soon). This functionality will be of particular interest to Airbnb hosts that want to extend this service to their guests.

“The building entry buzzer can be a major headache for roommates and couples.” Easy Buzzer’s CEO Daniel Fraser told Techvibes. “We’re going to end the pain housemates face when the phone or person connected with the buzzer is unavailable and a guest is stuck outside.”
The ability to use existing cell phones, land lines and VOIP systems means condo residents can connect all of their devices with the buzzer and answer from whichever is convenient for them at the time a guest arrives. “It’s amazing how much we will pay to live in a modern Vancouver condo with such a difficult to use front door! Our early customers absolutely love this service,” says Daniel.
