Biometric Gun Safes

Fingerprints are possibly the most unique identifying features of an individual. It is this feature that Biometric gun safes aim at exploiting in an attempt to lock and protect valuables. Biometric gun safes are a recent innovation dating back a decade or so. Prior to this, biometrics were used mostly in high security vaults, for tagging prisoners and for government employees working in high security offices. Today, biometrics are an integral part of life.

Pros Of Biometric Safes

Quite frankly, biometric safes provide the highest degree of protection and prevent unauthorized entry. They are designed to keep intruders out at all costs allowing only those whose fingerprints are stored in its database to gain access. Naturally, they are 100 percent accurate and reliable, easy to use and quick too. Moreover, because you wear your fingerprints, you never again have to remember a code, carry a key or fidget with the combination in an emergency situation. Flash your finger across the reading pad and the safe opens up to you in a matter of seconds.

Cons Of Biometric Safes

Biometric safes need electricity to power the reading unit, storage and every other component. If the battery runs out you are locked out of your own safe. This is possibly the biggest disadvantage because of which I suggest always opting for a biometric safe with a key override feature. A minor issue with these safes is that at times it is easy to lock yourself out if the biometric reader is too smudged up or damaged.
