    You can also hang/keep a key near the door but inaccessible from the outside even through broken glass.

    All of my exterior doors with glass in them or next to them are double cylinder dead bolted with the keys hanging on hooks about eight feet away from the door. You have to walk past the keys to get to the doors.
