WOW that's terrible sorry to hear this. We have Faraday box and pouches for the spare keys. I know this sounds crazy but I actually checked my box worked I put my keys in it for both our keyless entry Hyundai's and went and stood next to them and pressed the buttons on the doors and they wouldn't open.
Did the police or insurance offer any suggestions of how they did this, i have heard of keys being cloned but this is high tech stuff???

The police issued a crime number that morning, closed the case 10pm that evening and much to my astonishment/dismay they said the case would be kept on record. My insurance company were quiet unconcerned and just wanted to know if I had both keys, which I did.  Because these thieves are so far ahead of the car makers they have multiple ways of stealing your car. Since talking with the public and perusing the web I have discovered how rife it is.
The car was discovered three weeks later abandoned in South Derbyshire having been involved in numerous crime and a police chase when they got away.
The vehicle was eventually declared uneconomical for repair and a settlement accepted.
