Toying with the idea of installing a security safe – either at home or in the workplace?
Increasingly more people are opting to secure their valuable and confidential belongings inside a safe, particularly one with a high-security electronic lock fitted on the door.
Let’s take a look at the reasons why these safes prove to be popular and why you should consider the investment.
What is an electronic safe lock?
Traditionally, a safe was opened by spinning a dial to enter the combination. The correct number sequence put the lock’s tumblers in the right position, allowing the door to be unlocked.
Electronic safes work in much the same way only, instead of turning a dial, you enter a 4-6 digit code on an electronic keypad that’s battery-powered. When the correct combo has been entered, the mechanisms engage so the handle can turn, allowing you to access the items stowed inside the safe.
What are the benefits of a safe with an electronic lock?
Whether you’re constantly misplacing keys or multiple users require access to the contents of the safe, opting for one with an electronic lock will prevent lockouts and allow authorised personnel to open up the safe.
But that’s not the only advantage of installing an electronic locking safe…
1. They’re easy to use
Digital locking safes are one of the most user-friendly options out there and save you the hassle of monitoring the whereabouts of a key.
You can choose a code that’s easy to remember, and if you feel like security may be compromised, you can change the combination as and when you like.
2. They’re reliable
When compared to conventional key locking safes, electronic locks are subject to less wear and tear, meaning they’ll last much longer.
Having a safe with an electronic lock fitted will give you the peace of mind that your belongings are stored safely inside – out of sight of opportunists – and you can access them by simply inputting the correct code. You needn’t worry about the key snapping inside the lock and having to call a locksmith out to repair it.
3. They’re secure
Something that you might not know about electronic safe locks is that they often come with a number of additional features – including (but not limited to) dual controls, token mode, time delay options, and one-time use codes.
Of course, the more modern features your safe has, the more you can expect to pay. However, it will provide better protection against theft and damage, ensuring your valuables are in the safest of hands.
