Need to put hotel security in the power slot to make it work?

You have to put the hotel security card back in the power slot to get your electricity through.Glad I can work the camera better.

I've never heard of this and I wonder what the rationale is.   Don't you need to use the hotel security card to get in the room in the first place?

Is there an extra charge to use electricity?  If so, then it is still odd that they would use a security card.  Power meters were invented a long time ago and it would seem that adding a power meter to the room power outlets wouldn't be more expensive than a security card reader.
