Am I legally entitled to a buzz?

After signing the lease and paying the deposit, the owner is asking me to sign a release saying that I know that the door buzzer system does not work and will not be fixed. Is a buzzer something that I'll wish that I had, or will I be fine just having people call when they need to be let in? The buzzer wasn't mentioned either way before I signed the lease (but I saw that the building had a buzzer system without thinking to check it). I wouldn't want to try to get out of the lease and have to redo my apartment search, but it does seem a bit weird not being warned about this in advance. Do I have any recourse? Can I force them to fix it or to give me some sort of discount on my rent, or should I just let it slide? [more inside]

BUZZ - I know!!

Electronics filter. Game show buzzer+. There are tons of simple game show buzzer layouts on the google. What I can't seem to find is an idiots guide to something that would allow you to take an input more complicated that a simple yes/no. i.e. interrupt + [string]. Any pointers?
