As I said earlier if a garage has a door into the home it provides the best opportunity for a thief especially if they can get into the garage easily which they can with YOUR remote. As they approach your home in their car they hit your remote, drive in and close the door. Even if your neighbor saw this they probably wouldn't be suspicious. Once safely inside and out of sight the thief can take as long as they need to cherry pick your best valuables. At least you can take solace in the fact when you come home to discover you have been picked clean that your stolen remote only cost you $10. Everything else is inconseqential. It is isn't it?
