Obviously when you are at home, yes, because the key is within range of the signal relay.

But when you park the car somewhere else, then you (and therefore the key) are not likely to be in range of the signal relay.

So when I'm at home I keep both keys in my pouch, but when I go out I don't take the pouch.
We didn't have time to fully test, but the receiver works with a signal booster made from a bit of looped wire and extends the signal range.

A possible scenario is that someone follows you after you've parked up, gone inside a restaurant and sits nearby with the receiver in a bag. Providing they are within transmitting range (depends on device), the second thief holding the transmitter can open the doors and drive off.
