98 Union Front Door Intercom
  • Guests may use the intercom at the front door to contact you when the concierge is unavailable. Guests can use the intercom keypad to scroll through the resident list, locate your name and enter the code on the intercom keypad. It will ring the linked phone number (your residence land line or mobile phone). Upon answering your phone, press "9" on your phone's keypad to unlock the front door. Note: the intercom does not display the condo unit number so make sure your guest knows how to find your unit once they enter the building.
  • You can access the front door camera on channel 61 of your WAVE cable TV.  If that channel is not accessible, call WAVE to install a splitter on your TV so you can access the front door camera when the concierge is not available.

Enforcement of House Rules
  • The primary goal of 98 Union House Rules is to ensure an enjoyable living environment for all residents at 98 Union. When the actions of any resident disturb another, it is important to resolve the situation as quickly as possible. To that end, in most cases the first action will be for the Building Manager to meet with all parties to mediate the situation and achieve an acceptable resolution. If mediation fails, fines may be necessary to enforce compliance.
