Automated security updates

Is it a good idea to schedule automated updates from the security repository only? If so, how is
this done (perhaps cron)?
I would like to setup a client's server so that it performs automatic updates without any
interaction. Will the security updates ever require user input? And how likely are they to break
I would also like to be able to upgrade the system when I am present. I guess I could edit the
sources.list everytime I worked on the server, to allow updates of other packages. Then when I
leave I could change it back to security repositories only.
Isn't there a better way to do this?
