Biometric gun safes are one of the best gun safes available for safely storing your firearms. Owing to the modern biometrics of the fingerprint lock, gaining access to your firearms is quick and easy. You just need to touch the fingerprint recognition pad with your finger, and the lock will open. You can also store fingerprints of other people in safe’s memory, to whom you think is safe to give the access to your guns. Biometric gun safes are of great advantage over other gun safes, as you can easily open these safes even if you’re in a dark place. The use of fingerprint recognition lock also excludes the need of remembering number combinations, or fumbling for the key, thus allows an instant access to your guns.
Are Biometric gun safes really worth buying?
Keeping into consideration the unique type of security that it offers, and the speedy access it gives you, biometric gun safes are really worth buying. And it’s not only you who can gain access to your firearms; anyone whose fingerprint is stored in the safe’s memory can have an access to the gun safe. Two major advantages of biometric gun safes that make it worth buying include:
1. Allows security
There is no chance that your children can open your safe, as it allows entry to only those people whose fingerprint is stored in the safe’s memory. This will prevent any unfortunate happening. Moreover, a burglar could possibly predict the number combination of a normal safe, or duplicate the keys of a mechanical lock, but this isn’t possible with a biometric gun safe, as it makes use of fingerprint to open the safe. Thus, a biometric-gun safe offers great security.
2. Allows quick access
Unlike common type of locking system, which needs a number code or keys to open, a biometric-gun safe needs fingerprint of the owner to open. While opening a common type of lock, owner will have to either recall the code, or look for the keys to open the safe, which obviously is time consuming. But it’s not the same with a biometric-gun safe; only a swipe of your finger over the fingerprint scanner is enough to open the safe. This feature is extremely helpful when you feel some burglars are nearing your house at nighttime. Ant such situation, I’m sure every normal person will forget the number code, or the place where the key are kept.
Still, there are some limitations of biometric-gun safes. First: not all biometric-gun safes are fireproof or waterproof. Thus, if you’re looking for a safe that will protect your guns and valuables from damaging due to fire or water, better look for other safes. Second: most of the biometric gun safes are battery operated. An unfortunate power loss might keep you out of the safe until you insert override keys. But again, many manufacturers have come up with biometric-gun safes that alert you before the battery drains out.
