No home is complete without a quality safe. After all, everyone needs a place to store all of their important documents, valuables, and rainy day cash. Modern day safes are now even more secure than before thanks to the integration of bio-metric technology.
What to Look for in a Security Safe
When looking at security safes, one has to keep in mind that the door hinges and built are made of steel (at the very least) so as to protect your valuables from basic theft/vandalism via standard tools. Furthermore, if you’re looking to keep documents in them, then you may also want to have fireproof and water resistance as an added benefit. Then there is also the matter of how soundlessly it operates. If opening a safe creates a ruckus in your house and alerts the threat then you may as well not keep your handgun in there. Lastly, always bear in mind that with bio metrics, age matters. As we age, the skin on our fingertips wrinkles and can cause problems registering a fingerprint scan and recalling it. In such circumstances, you may be better off with a key/combination lock security safe.
Here are five of the best safes we found that utilize the latest bio-metric technology.
This safe is easily one of the best smart safes you can buy. It is one of the top-rated safes on Amazon, and for good reason. The Liberty 9G Bio metric Safe uses advanced bio-metric technology. That means instead of a pin code you use your fingerprint to access the safe. The Liberty can store up to 15 fingerprints and has a key backup with a five-year warranty, just in case. At, 4.25″ H x 9.00″ W x 10.00″ D, the inside dimensions of this safe are just big enough to hold your valuables without taking up too much space in your home. You can easily wall mount this with an accompanying mounting bracket.
Viking Fingerprint Safe
The Viking Security Safe is for those looking for heavy duty security on all fronts. First off, the Viking is bio-metric, so it has state of the art fingerprint scanning technology. If for some reason the fingerprint scanner isn’t your thing, the safe also comes with a digital keypad that also displays the battery status of the safe. To further secure your belongings, the Viking is equipped with a motorized deadbolt designed to withstand crowbars, so you don’t have to worry about intruders prying the safe open. It also sets off an alarm whenever someone tries to access it wrongly. It is an all-encompassing safe, and a perfect one for anyone looking for all around security.
Don’t let the price scare you too much on this one, because the Mesa MBF2020E is one heavy duty safe. It lacks a bio-metric scanner, but the heavy bolts and digital keypad are more than enough to stop burglars from cracking this one open. It is also relatively large at 22 x 22 x 22.5 inches. That’s a lot of storage for all of your belongings. You can also adjust the shelves in the safe to fit exactly what you need in them. And at 190 pounds, you don’t have to worry about someone hauling this one off. Combine that with 2 hours of fire protection and fall protection of up to 2 stories, and you have one of the most protective safes around. It may have a high price tag, but you are getting a high-quality safe along with it.
The Barska Mini Biometric Safe is yet another premium smart safe that utilizes smart-safe technology. This safe, though, can register up to 30 fingerprints. Pre-drilled holes also allow the safe to be mounted into the wall or countertop. The inside dimensions (11.5 x 7.5 x 5.75 inches) are broad enough to store two handguns, jewellery, and other valuable items safely. It’s a heavy duty safe that is perfect for anyone looking for state of the art security.
The X055 made it to this list for obvious reasons. It’s the number one selling smart safe on Amazon, after all. It isn’t quite as large as the other safes on this list, but in return, you get an incredibly competitive price point. It doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner, but it does have an excellent digital keypad that operates on AA batteries (which are, unfortunately, not included). This Security Safe measures 8.5 x 13.6 x 8.6 inches (HxWxD) inside and has a carpeted interior to prevent any scratches on your jewellery watches and other valuables. Anyone looking for a compact, secure, and affordable smart safe, the X055 is a no-brainer.
That’s TechVise’s list of top tier smart safes. Of course, there are much more safes than these out there. These safes are designed for residential locations, but there are tons of smart safes designed for stores and retail locations. Anyone looking to protect their personal property, though, these smart safes should far exceed your expectations.
