So I won't get locked out of the house again.


Far easier to hide a physical key.



That is what I have. A hidden key. The 2 grown children I have know
where it is incase I or my wife is not around when they want in.
There is a keypad outside the garage door to open it up. From there the
door to the house is seldom locked.


So consider a 'belt *and* suspenders' solution based on having a *physical* key.
belt: Surely this is some place to hide a physical key: in a fake or under a real rock, bottom/behind mail box, fake panel on storm door, neighbors garden, a very inconspicuous place in a gas grill, etc. it *can't* be that difficult

suspenders: on your person: inside wallet, inside shoe insole, neck chain, inside cell phone case, etc. or, inside your car - lots of places there and you can even get creative - magnetic case inside engine compartment or trunk, inside air filter case, etc...

This is a problem where the KISS approach works well

a quirk of geography, my suburb is relatively isolated (IOW: People do
not travel through my suburb on their way to somewhere else). It is,
officially (according to government data) the least burgled suburb in
metropolitan Sydney.

OK - I gotta ask: Why?

Nah.

Get a wind chime, one of those oriental looking ones with weird shaped pieces of metal.

Add a lock pick and tension wrench to it. Hang it near your door.

Practice a bit with it - you only have one lock to get used to and you'll quickly learn how to pick that one.

This is zero risk. Real thieves kick your door in. That one in a million who actually knows how to pick a lock already has lock picks. Neighborhood kids won't know what your picks are or how to use them if they did see them.
