What Are the Problems With The Safe?
Like all great security precautions, there is one flaw. Where do you store the key to the lock? Don’t make the mistake of keeping the key near your safe, as this would completely defeat the point. The key should be on you at all times, and another key should be kept away securely. As long as you guard the key, the safe is the perfect prevention from theft.
What Are The Different Kinds Of Locks For Safes?
The different lock types for safes include:
Mechanical Combination Locks
Electronic Combination Locks
Time Delay Combination Lock
There is no single ‘best’ lock. They all have advantages and disadvantages, However, the electronic lock is a good combination. You need a pin code to access this lock, but somebody else will also have a physical key to open it in the event of an emergency. This gets around the issue of having to store the key somewhere, combining the best of both electronics and mechanical.
Can You Change The Lock On a Safe?
Absolutely. A dial lock can be changed to an electronic one and changed back. Of course, biometrics locks are more specialized, and often over the top for most security precautions. It’s often best to stick with a good safe and take sensible precautions. Most break-ins and thefts are caused by carelessness, not weak locks, doors, or safes.
Will a Safe Really Stop a Thief?
Well, it’s far better to take the basic security precautions to prevent burglars! Dogs, a working alarm system, gates, sensors, and grilled windows are all useful deterrents. Like pests that are only attracted when there is food left out, burglars attack homes that often call for it. The best scenario is that nobody is in your home, period.
