Getting ready to have a pro install an RTI home automation system to control RadioRA2 lights, somfy shades, and control A/V.

Here is what we need help with which he didn't have a solution for.

We live in a condo and therefore the board members in the building have a master key to access all the units in case there is a water leak or similar emergency. What we are wanting is:

Some sort of keypad that we can mount on the wall inside condo that will beep like a security alarm when the door is opened and need to have a pin number entered.

I am going to give everyone in my family the same number but wanted to give the people in building a different number. I am hoping there is a way that we can be text or emailed when someone enters the condo that way we can know if someone enters condo while we are gone that is not in our family. Is there a way to do this without having to pay a monthly fee to a security company?

The building we live in is very secure and has locked front door to lobby with cameras and also you need a key to get up elevators so we don't feel the need for a security system.

Please reply if you need any other info. Thanks in advance for the help.

Just use a wifi camera and have it email you a photo when someone enters.
