Apartment Buzzer

This photo shows a somewhat antiquated apartment door buzzer at an apartment building in SoHo. Most newer security systems have either a camera above the buzzer for guest identification or a nice looking panel with clearly labeled names on it.

My building has double door buzzer and a two-way intercom system. But I only respond to the buzzer when I am expecting someone to visit. This is because sometime, people would ring all the buzzers hoping someone in the building would open the door downstairs without identifying who is the visitor.

So what kind of door bell or buzzer do you have in your home?
