I'm not sure I fully understand all the issues involved, but if you have managed to overcome the Halachic issues of the electronic lock and the automatic lights with minor inconvenience, there is no question that being part of a community is extremely important for maintaining your Yiddishkeit and sanity. However, if you are causing the lights to go on each time you step out the door of your house, then there is no benefit of being within walking distance of Shul if you can't leave your house to get there.
