I haven't seen it, but a friend told me he has a combination lockset on his entry door, that also opens/locks with a remote just like the car. So as you walk up to the front door you click the remote and you are in. Or if you don't have the remote, you use the combination. And you can always use the key.
Now, you could put one on each door, and if all responded to the same remote -- great. (Except, often you might not want to unlock ALL the doors -- for example, I would almost never unlock the walk-out door to my cellar/dungeon. So I guess the solution would be not to program the cellar to respond to the remote.)
One of the best protections is my neighbor across the street, who has a home business that sits up high overlooking my place so he sees everything. By the same token, my dog guards his business because she can see it from the living room window and she "owns" everything she can see, so she tells us whenever he has a visitor.
