Temporarily disable auto-lock door

There are a door that will be locked automatically in my office. However, we don’t want it to be locked when there is someone inside the office room, so that others can access easily. But we don’t want to completely disable to lock, as we want it to be auto-locked when no one is in the office, and the last who leaves can re-enable to lock easily. Sadly, the ‘smart’ card locking system won’t let me do this. So I come up with this idea to ‘temporarily’ disable the lock.
