I'm not sure what is the chance of opening it using another Digi-cabi key. No need to use blue tack, can also use a string to tie to the handle.

a) understand how dry cabinets work (check this link: http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=481380, read the manual)
b) set the correct RH
c) make sure the RH is really at target level: get a second hygrometer, either calibrated or DIY with salt test
d) make sure no gear is left in your camera bag
If you are worried about burglars then do something about the door lock at your main door. If you don't trust others on your place: move out or move them out
However, like what others had pointed out... I mean, the dry cabinet is not that secured and so if "intruders" as to want to open my dry cabinet and take the stuff in it, with or without the key, it will be a piece of cake... a mere few seconds work and the door is open, so might as well save them the trouble.
The thing here is... I lost my key and I know I will in time, so I don't bother locking the cabinet at all in the first place. Uncle Catchlight had great advice, tape the key to the cabinet. But frankly I wouldn't care that much.

I have to lock mine so my inquisitive son will not be able to open the doors and play with my equipment...
Does placing silicon gels in dry cabinets help in case ppl accidentally switch off th main power without uu knowin
Note that, if an environment is too dry, it is not good for your equipment too... especially the rubber parts of your equipment.
Also, leaving your gears in the cabinet for 2-3 days after the power gets cut off won't result in fungus growing on it, unless you have a swamp in the cabinet.
