searching for a proximity triggered deadbolt for front door

I have seen deadbolt locks for front doors that are locked and unlocked via an infrared transmitter that fits on a keychain. Has any company come out with one that is triggered by a card fob in your pocket, similar to what is available on some of the high-end cars? It would be great to simply walk up to my front door with all of my groceries and have my door automatically unlock for me. Thanks

Try a google search for 'proximity door lock'. For some the remote has to be held close to the unit, but there is at least one with 36" range.
