[Noisebridge-discuss] Problem: people seeing NB as a backup shelter

A very cool suggestion was made at the SecWG meeting two Thursdays ago
(next meeting this Thursday at 7pm!)

The idea was to install a physical two-factor auth system, where the
key still works, but between certain certain hours (or some other
heuristic) there's a keypad that must be entered to allow the key to
actually open the door.
