    I want a lock phone widget or app that performs in a particular way.

    I want a single button press to lock.

    OK, I can find this functionality on google apps.

    Additionally I want a keypad unlock. This would only apply when the phone is locked by the lock button.

    Otherwise the phone would default to its own lock mechanism.

    There are keypad unlocks on Google Play but I don't think any have the default bit.

    What I can't find is anything that has both these functions.

    Anyone know of one?

    (the reason is I want to use the phone's swipe at home, for speed and less irritating, but the functionality when outside the home to make lock more secure than a swipe).

    Unfortunately I can't simply set a PIN when going out, as apparently once you do that, the phone does not allow you to return to a swipe lock.

    Annoyingly the phone actually has this functionality but it is greyed out in settings so I can't use it.

    Welcome to Android Central!

    Depending on your phone OS version you could use Trusted Places for something like what you want. You set up your Work and Home as Trusted Places and when ever you are at either one of those you do not need to put in a PIN or anything for the lock screen. When you leave those places the security is reactivated.
