Default Double deadbolt with keypad?

I have windows on either side of my front door, so a double deadbolt is required, but I would love to have a lock with a keypad on it so I dont have to carry my house key everywhere. Does such a thing exist? So far I've only been able to find some cheap looking ones thats look like they were designed for a commercial setting.

Also I'd like to have one with a manual deadbolt where the electronics just operates a clutch rather than actually turning the deadbolt.

I think you will find that all of them have hardware in the inside of the door which will not allow the double key set up. I don't like the double lock in a home as it can make a trap in a fire, protecting the glass may be a better choice.
And welcome to the site.
