Rubbish. 

There are only two or three types of locks that cannot be picked from the
outside by a lockpicker within 10-15 minutes. None of those locks is on your
outside door. Why do you bother to lock your house?

There is only one class of door designs that cannot be broken through in
10-15 minutes. None of the doors of that class is in your house. Why do you
have a door on your house?
