A simple mechanical solution is the best answer. I thought I'd made my millions when I designed such a contraption (well scribbled it on the back of an envelope.) Then I discovered that some Land Rover models already have this fitted.
Ha, you mean something other than the solenoid which locks & unlocks it?

I certainly wouldn't worry about a small, low-voltage, battery powered device by comparison.
