Do you have to use a badge or key card to get in to your office?

At my office, we have to use a security badge to get in. The problem is that we are not allowed to get visitor passes any more. All day, people have to run around to the front of the building to let in all the visitors (we have no front desk person, either). Do you have some kind of secure entry at your work?

In my office key card is used for security reason. But for outsiders we use CCTV. CCTV kept video footage of every action. http://videodoorphone.org/video-door-phone/ip-video-door-phone.html

The last company I worked for had security badges for the employees. There were no visitor passes as well. Whenever UPS, FED EX, supplies or the mailman came, someone would have to open the door for them. Sometimes, if I forgot mine, I would have to knock on the door to get in every time I went to the rest room or out for lunch. the company used to have a keypad on the door with a secret number, every time someone got fired they would change the number and you would have to remember the new pass code.
