I'm at least a little worried that where I keep the key indoors is
close enough to the car, parked in an accessible front space, that
anyone walking up to it and grabbing the handle, might get in. I ran
some tests and this did not seem to be the case.

FWIW that's about three floors up and 100 feet away from the car, with
walls and pipes and furniture and stuff between.

Not to mention false positives from other fobs and innocent devices.
