Is there a Portable Door Lock that can be used for apartments, hotels, etc. that can be operated from outside the door?

I live in an apartment and the complex doesn't allow me to change the locks or install something permanently. What I would like to do is put something on the inside of the door that I could operate from outside. The whole purpose is to secure my apartment when I am not there but still do it within the apartment complex's guidelines. Any ideas?

The rules surely prevent you from doing this.
Change the locks, they'll complain in the same way if they find out, whatever you do.

It's operational from the outside you can change the code yourself and you don't need to walk around with keys anymore :)
