Instead of having an alarm for the Johnson Graduate Lounge (which disrupts the undergraduates studying when a foolish grad student walks throug h without using their keycard) what if the door were locked always unless you use a grad key card (like the dorms after hours). Just a suggestion!

Thank you for your suggestion. I know that the alarm is very LOUD! That door is a fire exit so we are limited with the ways that it can be handled. We cannot just leave it locked, so there has to be an alarm and a timing mechanism to provide egress. Thanks for the idea, though!
