What to look for when buying a home safe for your house
Home safes are often used to protect small items such as credit cards, small amounts of cash, passports and documents which give details about your identity such as bank statements. It is no surprise that criminals are changing what they steal and more often it is identity theft.
If you are looking for a home safe you will have a choice of different sizes and locking mechanisms. Small safes are available which make them ideal for securing where space is limited. Larger home safes will store A4 documents and generally are supplied with one or two shelves. Most popular locking options for home safes are key lock and digital lock. Each home safe with a key lock is supplied with 2 keys as standard and extra keys are available at the time of order which is a good idea if you need to give more people access. Digital lock home safes are powered by batteries and in most cases are supplied, emergency keys are provided to open the safe door when the batteries do not have enough power to power the lock. Our top tip is to always keep your emergency keys stored in a secure place but not in the safe. Should the batteries fail or not have enough power to open the lock you will be locked out.
