Biometric (Fingerprint) Safes
John Dean says: Biometric fingerprint gun safes have come a long way. It doesn't get much easier than sticking your finger on top of a biometric scanner or resting your handprint on a reader and presto - your safe opens. Everyone has unique fingerprints or thumbprints, so accuracy is assured.
The index finger position is the location of the biometric reader.
The biometric lock is available on different kinds of safes. Gun Vault's line offers the GVB-1000 and GVB-2000 pistol safes and each will store 30 prints. There is a fingerprint reader inside the first position where your index finger would go. Simply place your finger on the sensor, tap a button and the safe pops open.
Your hand fits nicely in the pre-formed faceplate.
GunVault's MVB-500 will also read finger or thumbprints, but by using a scanner instead of a reader. To open this fingerprint gun safe, simply press the index finger button and then slide your fingertip over the little scanner located below the button. In less than a second, the GunVault has analyzed your print and opened the door. Amazingly, this fingerprint gun case can store 120 different fingerprint or thumbprints. We always recommend that each user you grant access to store at least two prints from each hand. This way, should you cut your finger on one hand you can still open the unit by using a print from your other hand.
Sargent & Greenleaf's biometric lock makes a great upgrade for your current rotary lock.
And if you're just looking to upgrade a current safe to open with a touch, biometric locks are available for many home and gun safes. Sargent & Greenleaf biometric locks can be retrofitted onto most existing safes, or a new safe can be ordered with the biometric lock. The Sargent & Greenleaf bio will store six fingerprints, and allows for the use of either the fingerprint or PIN number (as in an electronic pushbutton lock) or both. For ultimate security, you can program the lock to require both a fingerprint and a PIN number to open the safe.
In short, pistol boxes or gun and home safes with biometric locks give you quick and easy access for your weapons and all your other valuables.
