Lockout

It's 4 a.m. and I find myself locked out of my house through a series of strange circumstances that my LJ friends can read about. I don't have a spare key within range of me right now and won't be able to get in for a few hours until someone with a key is available. So I retreated to my workplace where I can kill some time with computer access. This made me wonder if other people have a plan to prevent this from happening (as I surely will after today).

There's always someone at home so me being locked out is extremely unlikely

My home has a keypad lock, not a keyed lock
1(1.0%)
Something else (what?)

I guess I'm not very prepared in the event that I ever lock myself out
