Digital Safes with an Electronic Lock
Our range of electronic safes come in a variety of different sizes and security levels.
These vary from entry level types which act just as a deterrent to a thief. Right up to models which protect documents from fire and models designed for storing cash or valuables.
The benefits of having a safe with a digital keypad are varied and include the following:
- You do not need to keep a key with you at all times which some insurance companies require you to do.
- There is no spare key to keep hidden securely away.
- You can change a code at any time if you think there is someone who has discovered it.
- Advanced electronic locks on an electronic digital safe have an audit trail facility meaning you can see who have used the safe.
- Some safes can be wired up to your alarm system with a duress function which can alert the Police in the event of you or staff being held up.
- Certain locks will offer a different amount of user codes which gives you flexibility to program different numbers for staff.
With electronic lock safes, it is important to know that the batteries will need to be changed on a 6-12 month basis and that you also remember the pin code to gain access.
Some models will have an override method which include an emergency key or manufacturer master code, however any models which are insurance approved will not have these options.
