:...by having to use the key, nobody can get into your house without the key to the car, even if they do break in - that is engineered into the system as a safety feature
I really don't see how safety is enhanced by requiring a key to use the UGDO.
Case 1: car is garaged:
Someone who breaks into a garage where the car is does not need the UGDO to open the garage door right?
Case 2: car is not in the garage:
Someone breaking into the car would set off the alarm in presumably a much more conspicuous drive way than going in through a side door or something to the garage which may or may not have an alarm.
The UGDO is not useful to a would be thief since access is protected by the the car alarm which is presumably as good or better than the garage security.
